Build your own Mini engine kit
Build your own working V8 engine from this 250 piece motorised plastic kit. Comes complete with display stand. Cylinder block and head are clear plastic so you can see all the pistons and valves moving.
This model engine is designed to be fun to put together, and to make it easier for you to understand how a full-size V8 car engine works. The engine includes real engine sounds of an engine starting and running to enhance your experience and a detailed booklet with information on the four-stroke cycle, fuel injection, engine oil, emission control and how to care for engines. The V8 Engine Kit provides fascinating insight into the world of engines and how these complex machines work.
All parts screw or clip together, so the engine can be taken apart and rebuilt. An electric motor drives the engine and requires three AA batteries (not included).
