but not going to happen at the Price:US$399.99 for the kit .and this is the cheapest I have seen https://www.banggood.com/Teching-124-Fo ... rehouse=CN
see them a lot higher priced elsewhere -on Amazon there twice as much - Price:$689.00 & FREE Shipping https://www.amazon.com/Assembling-Four- ... 256&sr=8-2
seem a bit steep for my pocket book.

I love that but don't have a place to put it. I've always wanted a working miniature engine to build but they run in the thousands. Some cost so much that I could buy a full scale engine cheaper.

When I was a young teen, I had the Revell Ford 2.3L SVO scale engine model. Everything turned with a motor that was encased in the starter. It even had the timing marks and "spark plugs" that lit up in time with the cylinders.
