Operating Scale Model 4-cylinder Engine!

By Classiccargal Published: August 31, 2009

After reading previous posts by Autosaurus and Steven S. Brooks about the Glenmoor Gathering, I checked out the show's website ( and found many more exciting things that will be on display€”including this fully operable 4-cylinder internal combustion engine! According to the website, this working scale gasoline engine was built by George Britnell and is made entirely from bar stock, aluminum, brass and iron with a bore of .750 and stroke .875. The engine is said to idle at 1,500 rpm!

In addition to this impressive scale engine, there will be other models on display€”both vintage and recently-built€” including automobiles, engines, and planes. Another featured model that will be on display is a 1916 Fokker Eindecker E. IV airplane€” the best fighter plane of the WWI era. A joystick or rudder moves all control surfaces on the model and it is equipped with dual 7.92 mm Spandau machine guns!

The details of these models are exquisite€”both inside and out! Don't miss your opportunity to see these true pieces of art at this year's Glenmoor Gathering on September 20 in Canton! You can call Glenmoor at 330-966-3600 to purchase tickets or visit their website for ticket locations. See you at the show!
