If you are not an engineer you will still appreciate this

Click link to see a miniature engine being built and assembled. Very interesting whether you are the engineering type or not. http://www.wimp.com/tiniestengine/

A lovely piece of work, even though I didn't care for the musical arrangement over the film. I would have like to have seen more detail of the cylinder heads though. I have seen slightly larger V8's, but running under combustion, not on compressed air as this model was doing. Each cylinder in the V12 was in effect 'two stroking', as the timing gear shows that the camshafts are running are crankshaft speed, instead of half speed as in a functioning engine.

Still, a definite 'wow!' from me!

Superb bit of miniaturization.

Nice bit of filming too, much better than the run-the-mill U tube stuff.

Wonder Why he used Pushrod rather than Overhead Gear, May be as it's two stroke he was thinking of diesel

Just to add my thoughts, in Nevil Shute's "Trustee from the Toolroom", one of the model engineers remarked on one of his creations "should have used hex rather than round-head, will do better next time"...

That was fantastic, takes me back to my model car building and racing days, although I'll be honest and say that they were radio control car kits, nothing like that.
