Re: Building The World's Smallest v12 Engine
- Yes, at Cabin fever you will see some amazing work.
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
Steve is a Mach user. The plans are available from him.

for some of the worlds best. How about a 1/6 scale Harley Davidson bike-
fully functional, down to the speedometer.
