Our V8 Combustion Engine Model Kit will amaze both children and parents alike with its realistic engine details! Put over 270 pieces together using the easy to follow instruction guide as you learn about how a real life engine is built. This V8 Combustion Engine Model Kit will be the prize trophy on any car lover’s desk, shelf, or classroom.
With a simple press of the power button, prepare to be amazed. The cooling fan spins, pistons fire up and down, light bulbs flick on and off in perfect sequence mimicking the air-fuel combustion process, and since it runs on three AA batteries (not included) there is no need to worry about pricey gasoline to enjoy the show!
In addition to the mechanical skills acquired through building, this V8 Combustion Engine Model Kit also includes a detailed introduction in the instruction manual. By reading, children will recognize the difference between an electric motor vs. the powerful V8, and learn about different types of combustion engines. Lastly, the introduction delves into the four-stroke cycle through a visual representation of the four steps (Intake, Compression, Power, and Exhaust).
Once children build the kit and read the introduction they will have a full grasp of the science, engineering, and physics that go into this automotive cornerstone. It is never too early for your young mechanic to start learning how a real V8 combustion engine works.
