A Self Building V Twin Model Aircraft Engine Video?

This tickled me pretty good. According to the original Youtube poster, it took the guy six weeks and thousands of still pictures to make this video. It’s pretty slick and entertaining to watch but the sound effects really make it.

You can see other model engine builds he has done at his Youtube channel.

  1. That was lovely.
    It would be interesting to see the production method; movement of parts without support during stills for example.

  2. Hey Phil …
    I vaguely recall seeing a stop-motion-animation video of some sort of British car engine being removed, steam-cleaned, disassembled, getting new internals/bearings/rings/seals/guts and then being rebuilt.

  3. That was really cool to watch until the motor started turning and both the crank shaft and the alternator/generator shafts were unbalanced and, damn, that spoiled it.

    All of that machining and working to produce… a stupid non-functioning engine.

    Dangit.
