Overall, the opinions are mixed, and it'd be best to read the instructions carefully before starting to assemble the product. My grandson took it into school and proudly stood at the front describing pistons, crankshaft, valves etc. The Machine Works Haynes V8 Model Engine Kit is a comprehensive but manageable kit of a simplified replica working engine. The best that can be said for it is that my 9 yr-old grandson learned to tighten screws gently to avoid breakages, but even his grandmother (who has a PhD in Physics) found assembly frustrating. It is also beyond the ability of a 10 yr-old to assemble - probably a 14 yr-old could do it without adult help.

From Haynes, the famous makers of vehicle service manuals, comes a range of detaled working engine models. Plus, once completed the model maker can register the built engine online and will receive a certificate of authenticity from Haynes Publishing.

Devon 4x4 are synonymous with 4x4 preparation and maintenance, we are generally considered the market leader within our industry. Is there no way to have the engine on and in motion for more than the 5 odd seconds it does something? All in, it took 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete our model (that’s Christmas morning sorted, then). The build quality was not great and I swear (despite many attempts and double checking) that the cam timing is totally wrong (ok being a bit pedantic but its a critical part of an engine)and the spark plug lights also seem to be have the wrong timing.

It's not perfect - the fan belt causes the crankshaft to flex on rotation on mine causing an horrific graunching noise, so if yours does that, remove the belt (that's the external belt you can see going to the 4bladed fan in the pic if that's unclear) it makes no difference other than obviously the fan will no longer rotate.Some bits can be fiddley to assemble and require patience, but it is fun to put together and the screws used are all the same size so no putting the wrong one in the wrong place. If you don’t know what any of that means, you will do by the end of the assembly, and you will have a newfound appreciation for the complexity of an internal combustion engine.
