This is another of my "Great engines" series.  

 

This is what you get in the box:

 

It goes together quickly and has good detail.  Note the wiring harnesses.

 

Just keep picking away at it...

It is interesting to me that they added the detail of these lines under the intake.

This engine will take its place among the pantheon.  It was a fun build with good detail.  It doesn't quite have the visual impact of the other engines in the line up, but it is what it is.  It was still fun, and if I can find some more of these engines, I will build them too.  Thanks for looking.

Hey Nigel,

I actually built that one back in 1980.  It was my 6th grade "thesis" if you will.  I went to an advanced school and we had to pick something we were interested in.  It was worth half the grade.  Anyway, my dad helped me with the wiring.  The model had a gear reduction starter and LEDs for the spark plugs.  The distributor was actually wired and the lights would go off in proper firing order.  I noticed yours doesn't have the starter, but does it have the spark plugs?  I have seen the old school version like I built on ebay, but they are a fortune.  I vaguely remember that the valves were in two pieces, so you had to glue the head to the stem, and I seem to remember them wanting you to do it all at the same time.  You put the valves with the springs in the head then take a pencil and lay it across all the valves and rubber band it to the head to hold everything while the glue dries.  I remember dad doing that bit for me.  That model, more than anything else, solidified my understanding of how an engine works.  It was a real learning experience.  It was the neatest model ever.  Let me know how yours goes.  I am interested in the similiarites/differences between yours and the one I did.  BTW, I got an A and the model was the star of the whole class.

That's how I remember it anyway.  It has been a while.  I really would like to do it again.  Have to keep my eyes peeled for a bargain.

The shelf of engines displayed together looks impressive. Very cool.
