Safety Cautions

Prepare your child for future success as a mechanic, mechanical engineer, or at the very least, give him or her a solid understanding of mechanical science and engineering with the Revell Visible V8 Model Engine Kit. At about one quarter the size of an actual V8 engine, every real life detail is maintained in the plastic pieces, so children will feel like they are building a real engine. Turning the external hand crank demonstrates how the 314 pieces collaborate to make the engine run, and visibility is provided by the clear plastic exterior, giving kids an unprecedented view of how an internal combustion engine actually works. Parents can place the engine on the included stand and display their children's mechanical skills on a bedroom shelf, and teachers can easily use the engine as a learning aid when teaching a unit on mechanics and machines.

While this is a complex Level 3 model, it comes with logically paced instructions and well-detailed, exploded-view illustrations to give young modelers clear directions on how to arrange, assemble, and secure each part of the engine. Children will know when to glue parts together, when to press-fit parts, and when to use the include screwdriver to secure parts of the engine that need to remain removable for making later adjustments to the engine model's operation. Helpful hints and tips are included throughout the manual, so children know which parts need to be lubricated or filed for the engine to run smoothly. The Visible V8 Engine helps children build their logical thinking skills and spatial awareness, while a basic understanding of engines can be worth thousands in later savings when it comes to engine maintenance and negotiating with mechanics.
