Fine Built Models | ScaleAutoWorks
A jewel-like 1:8 scale model, individually hand-built by a European craftsman who made all parts himself from the appropriate metals, rubber, bolts and screws. Bolted assembly like the real engine, no glue. Fully movable internals: functional flywheel, fan, crankshaft, pistons, cams, and valvetrain, see the close-up photos below. Other perfect details include accurate ignition wires, oil and fuel lines, Weber carburetors with working linkages, and a full exhaust system. Can be displayed with cam cover (or any other pieces) removed to show internal details.
    specifications: weight 1.5 lbs w/o stand; 5" L x 4.5" W x 3.5" H (7" H on stand); scale 1:8 / 1.5" = 1'
As you can see, it is indistiguishable from the real engine except for size.
The model also includes a custom lucite case, engine stand, and laser engraved data plaque.
