A superb educational tool to see the inner workings of a V-8 engine!
This set allows you to build an 8-cylinder engine plastic model, also called a V-8. 12 inch (30 cm) long, this ¼ scale, you can see how pistons and cams work, it even has the oil gauge!
After gaining the pride of the completed build, you will have the opportunity to see how an internal combustion engine works by turning a crank to activate the movement and see how the parts move!
Like a real engine, this V8 is equipped with moving pistons and connecting rods. The crank operates the pistons, camshaft rocker and valves. The kit includes a rubber fan belt and vinyl ignition wires.
Includes screwdriver needed for construction.
Recommended for ages 12 and up, with adult supervision, especially because of glue required. Instructions require plastic glue and in some areas, epoxy glue (Canadian Tire example). Always insure proper ventilation.
