A very tiny (and functional) V-12 engine

  1. I found the link to this video while lurking at the IPMS forum of my city. Is a very nice thing to see: a very tiny and functional V12 engine.

    The titles in Spanish at the beginning of the video read:
    "Build and assembly of a V12 engine - probably the smallest in the world"

    At the end of the video it says:
    "Number of parts: 261
    number of screws: 222
    time building it: 1220 hours"

    Link to youtube video:

    That's a nice motor. It is an air driven motor thought. Which is quite different from a fuel driven motor. I have the tooling to do this but it is so much work that I would just rather rebuild the Mercedes 450SL engine in my car! Below is a fuel driven engine. This is a real fuel burning V-8 engine!

    Thats cool too good luck on the 450SL Mercedes.I had big boy toys but the government made me get rid of them when I became disabled.They counted them as income.

    Interesting. I've see a number of miniature operating V8s and 6s. The video showing the machineing involved was informative.
