About this deal

Some mention that it works well and looks good, while others say that construction can lead to an almost functioning model, which can be frustrating.

Haynes is one of the most recognised publishing and specialist automotive brands in the world thanks to our famous repair manuals.These are comprehensive but manageable kits that allow you to get hands-on and build up detailed replica working engines. We found the instructions, like Haynes’s car manuals, clearly and concisely written, with essential diagrams illustrating each stage of the building process. My grandson took it into school and proudly stood at the front describing pistons, crankshaft, valves etc.

The most popular advice topics — we've got you covered Are you insured for a tree falling on your car? 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. The Machine Works Haynes V8 Model Engine Kit is an educational model building kit of a functional, motorised model V8 internal combustion engine that car and engine loving adults/parents will just loving helping the kids assemble and then learn more about how an engine works. All in, it took 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete our model (that’s Christmas morning sorted, then).Disclosure: I received this item for free for the purposes of writing an honest and impartial review.

Devon 4x4 are synonymous with 4x4 preparation and maintenance, we are generally considered the market leader within our industry. Nothing really of interest, just looked like it was put together with random stuff from a Star Trek bumper annual.It is also beyond the ability of a 10 yr-old to assemble - probably a 14 yr-old could do it without adult help. In-depth, impartial and expert car reviews Updated Tesla Model 3 review Extended test: McLaren GT review Rolls-Royce Spectre EV reviewed › More here.

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. Haynes, the world's leading publisher and retailer of car and motorcycle manuals, has produced a realistic working model of a combustion engine which you can build yourself. The Machine Works Haynes V8 Model Engine Kit with Digital and Interactive Augmented Reality is a really cool construction project and bonding experience that is so much more than assembling parts. 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. Overall, the Machine Works Haynes V8 Model Engine Kit an excellent bonding experience for any parent/child or grandparent/grandchild.Comes with a Haynes style manual giving you step by step instruction as well as interesting information about V8 engines.
