From the Manufacturer

This 1:4 Scale Visible V-8 Engine Plastic Assembly Kit from Revell is the winner of the 2008 Parents Choice Award and Silver Honor - 1995 Doing and Learning Toys. What better way to see how an internal combustion engine works than to be able to see all of the parts move. As you turn the crank, each of the parts move, just like the real thing. The Visible V8 Engine features moving pistons and connecting rods. A hand crank operates the pistons, camshaft rocker arms and valves. The kit includes a rubber fan belt and vinyl ignition wires. A superb educational tool on the inner workings and construction of a V-8 engine.

Overall I enjoyed putting the model together. Despite the box showing up in perfect condition, some of the parts were warped either due to production issues or how they were packed in the box. The camshaft had a definite bend in it that affected the ability for the pushrods to function correctly. Was able to get it back in alignment good enough to function. The oil pan was also noticeably warped.

Instructions sometimes fail to highlight very important steps that affect later function and in some cases parts fit both ways and the instructions are not specific enough to make it obvious which way is the right way (until sometime later when something else doesn't fit). I was able to modify things without too much difficulty and am happy with the end product.

If you take your time and test fit as much as possible this is an enjoyable kit to work with.

Although the instructions were sometimes unclear the build itself was fun and helped to learn a bit about engines. As stated in other reviews some plastic parts were warped or sometimes too much plastic was used when molding and the part was bigger then it was supposed to, however it wasn't anything that couldn't be fixed with a small knife or file. Overall, I really enjoyed the build and the experience, this model is really aimed at people with some degree of building experience and dexterity. I think it makes a good gift for a person who likes to learn how things work and build things with their own hands.
