Engine kits can be educational tools

RELATED TOPICS: ENGINE
Tip: I'm not sure if this truly counts as a tip, but I think it could be a helpful suggestion.

I recently saw several of the 1/6 scale Revell-Monogram engine kits for $20 each at a local retail chain. I've since purchased four of them, and find them to be quick and fun builds; but more than that, they've turned out to be a great educational tool for learning about wiring and plumbing engines.

The kits are pretty detailed, with spark plug wiring, hoses, springs, vacuum hoses, etc. For anyone who isn't 100 percent comfortable with the intricacies of wiring a 1/25 scale engine, these could be a great way to get more familiar with it. They're a perfect "exploded diagram" in three dimensions!
