These crazy mini engines make our geek senses tingle
My Christmas list is suddenly sorted
Real life V12s and V8s are pretty cool I guess, but scale them down to the size of a hamster and they suddenly become the best things ever.
The fact that some people have the talent and patience to manufacture all the tiny working parts that make up an internal combustion engine and then get them all firing together as one is beyond me. Although given a kit, this would make for an infinitely awesome project to get stuck into over the holidays.
With a mix of classic piston engines as well as the odd aircraft radial engine, these pocket-sized pieces of engineering would make for the perfect tabletop petrolhead nerdfest.
