How to check and inflate your tyres Haynes How-To: change a car battery Haynes How-To: change an engine's air filter › More here. My grandson took it into school and proudly stood at the front describing pistons, crankshaft, valves etc. It’s fun for adults, as you can see from the timelapse we shot ourselves in the Haynes office, but they’re also great learning tools for kids. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It is also beyond the ability of a 10 yr-old to assemble - probably a 14 yr-old could do it without adult help.

left it on display (as you might) and the plastic has gone green spoiling the whole look of the thing. Plus, once completed the model maker can register the built engine online and will receive a certificate of authenticity from Haynes Publishing. Some mention that it works well and looks good, while others say that construction can lead to an almost functioning model, which can be frustrating. Aimed at children aged 10 or over, the kit is a simplified version of a real engine but is not based on the unit from a particular car. Includes a Haynes Manual which features easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and a guide to the working principles of an internal combustion engine.The Machine Works Haynes V8 Model Engine Kit with Digital and Interactive Augmented Reality is a really cool construction project and bonding experience that is so much more than assembling parts. IF YOU have a son or daughter who is interested in tinkering with engines, don’t let them loose under the bonnet of your Ford Mondeo this Christmas. It's loads of fun to build and keep little ones attention spans, excellent instructions coupled with quality materials give this kit a true sense that you have spent much more on it than you have. Some mention that they had one issue with the motor not fitting correctly, and that the distributor was hard to fit.

Some mention that it's brilliant and easy to put together, while others say that the instructions are difficult to follow, the parts are not machined well to enable easy assembly, and the instructions were written with children in mind.
