    RE: v12 model engine

    I can't hit youtube from work, but I'm guessing its one of the old conley v12s. Awesome aren't they... but not new... Think you can still buy them for around $6k.

    RE: v12 model engine

    @ foxy: No, it's no conley engine, it has been constructed and built by me. For more information, please visit my homepage http://engineman.de or look at youTube, Í've built several radial engines, too.

    If this is really the guy who built that then I think you do awesome work. How much did it cost you to build?

    RE: v12 model engine

    First, I had to design the engine. Then it took about 300 hours to build it. Every part, except the carburetors, has been made on my own.

    My apologies for my assumption, I will certainly check it out!! Sounds like its impressive judging by other comments.

    RE: v12 model engine

    Those minature V8's and V12's are just incredible!! (COngrats to Engineman1, it's beautiful!!)  Ive never seen one actually in an RC car before though.. They're always on a stand, running by themself.. Would love to see one actually in a car, and see it perform!!

    The HP rating is about 4,6.

    RE: v12 model engine

    Hey, I saw your original vid of the V12 a long while ago when you came out with the engine, great work on the creation it sounds great. Out of curiosity, how come the smallest fueled replicas are only 1/6 scale?

    Also what did you use to machine it all? Manual: Press/Lathe? or CNC?

    RE: v12 model engine

    Thanks, Ipredominantly used manual machines, only a few parts were built on a CNC.

    RE: v12 model engine

    This engine V-12 was originally made by Martin in Germany. Since then I negotiated the right to CNC machine this engine and his 2 radials Radial- 9 and Radial-14. All engines are now available for sale here in the USA and to all at my web site: WWW.AUTHENTICSCALE.COM
    First shipment is delivered by October 15 (2 Radials-14; 3 Radials-9 and 2 V-12). I will be at iHOBBYEXPOin Chicagonext October 21-24 on Booth 2002 (main center aisle). If you wish, come by and see the engines (if allowed, I will run them). Martin will be distributing this engines in Germany also.
