      Calling something "worlds smallest' is a big stretch. The V12 is, as
      pointed out, not even an engine.

      The radials mentioned are by George Luhrs. 5 Cylinder, 1/4" bore. He has
      built a 1 cylinder, overhead valve 4 stroke with 1/8" bore. To hear it
      run you have to hold it right up to your ear.

      The V8 pointed out looks quite a bit bigger than the Demon that Steve
      Hucks built. He is doing the blower now and the build is fully detailed
      at http://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/f31/blower-demon-v8-21177/
      Steve is a Mach user. The plans are available from him.

      If you are interested in models see http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/
      for some of the worlds best. How about a 1/6 scale Harley Davidson bike-
      fully functional, down to the speedometer.
