"Amazing Kit!"
This is a very well made Engine kit. I've built two of them so far. The instructions are a little hazy in some spots, but the overall build is fun. It takes some skill to make, but overall a nice kit.

"really cool engine"

I really loved this engine because it showed me how engines work so I could finish my science project for school

"Visible V8 Engine"
marvin.saunders69 (Oklahoma City, OK)
I have been building plastic models for 35 years. Specifically, Monogram, Revell, Tamiya, Kyosho, AMT, etc. I found the fitment to be spotty at best. There was a time when Monogram/Revell models were very nice. Over the years, with popularity of model building become lack luster at best, not so much. For this particular model I found that some parts are not necessary. Overall the model is nice, and can be really eye catching with some detailing. I will try this model once more. I am all about second chances. I absolutely love building models. I would love to do this professionally. I gave this one star, because the clear parts were severely scratched, some external parts were warped, as with most kits with Revell. Instructions from Revell are missing details that ARE important. Overall, it is worth the money. You will receive vague instruction on the operation of the internal combustion engine (very cool).

"They don't make them like this any more"
This is a great project for young car and mechanics enthusiasts. I wouldn't recommend the kit for anyone under 12, as there are very small parts that in certain places have little room for error. The instructions must be followed exactly and even then you can get it wrong. There is no room for extra glue; excessive glue will stop the engine from working properly, especially if it gets inside the cylinder walls. An immense feeling of satisfaction for the young person in your life who completes this model, boy or girl. Not recommended for kids with big hands, as some parts are just to small. A good degree of precision is required to make this model functional, but in the end it's worth it.


  • Keep away from small children. Contains small parts which may cause choking.
  • This is not an actual running engine, it is meant for display purposes only.
  • Model is approx. 12" in length when complete.
