High Quality Build - Good Fun
The kit shipped and arrived in a timely manner. The package is well-assembled and organized - it was very easy to find the correct parts needed throughout the build.
All the parts are precision-machined and finished - no sharp edges, etc.
Between the paper book and the posted videos, the instructions are excellent (though I did make an error and installed one sprocket backwards - in this case, it was easily remedied even after I had finished). It took 8-9 hours to complete the build and the model works very nicely. A mini/magnetic power screwdriver was helpful as there are hundreds of screws but it's not necessary and you'll want to manually hand-tighten anyway - the provided tools will do the job.
I shared my video with some family and friends and they were interested and impressed.
It's a bit pricey but IMO, good quality/value for the money.

V8 engine model
Arrived in Portugal securely packaged with no damage.
All components good quality & fitted together without problem.
Instruction manual clear & easy to follow.
All components required were in the kit, with some spare screws & drive belts.
There was no lubricating oil in the kit, which may have been deliberate. As a packaging engineer I realise how difficult it is to transport low viscosity oils without leakage, in an uncontrolled transit environment, where there will probably be pressure differentials. As such I just used sewing machine oil, which appeared to work fine.

Model #Dm118 and Model #Dm13 were both shipped by DHL. The product inside the cans were excellent the problem was in the shipping as both the cans arrived with dents.

Bought as a gift for an older gentleman and he loved it..all metal pieces and so easy to put together..the instruction manual was easy to read. Just wish there was more like this.

High quality, great instructions and fun to build. It took me a little longer than spec'd but i would not have minded it being even longer. This is my first model. I hope there are comparable projects like this.

Très bon moteur
Tout comme le 4 cylindres, j'ai pris beaucoup de plaisir faire votre V8, fabrication trs soigne et joli.
Rien de compliqu dans le montage mme sans notice fran?aise, pour ma part j'ai modifi quelques
dtails, feutrine sur les soupapes pour voir mieux l'ouverture, cot filtre bloc moteur agrandi une
ouverture pour voir rellement la bielle en mouvement.
J'ai aussi trouv bon de crer l'allumage, delco et fils de bougies, en dsignant les cylindres droits,
1-3-5-7 l'ordre d'allumage est sur votre moteur, 1-4-5-2-7-6-3-8 si je ne me trompe pas.
Voil pour mes commentaires, trs beau moteur une fois fini et, j'espre un jour le 6 cylindres

V-8 engine Model Kit ,love putting this kit together!
I am giving this kit 4 and 1/2 Stars.
had to cut opening on left side of battery cover turn battery 180 degrees around so the cords would be long enough.
Added 1 1/2 inches to the cord from control box to electric motor.
Overall it is a great kit, do plan to buy more kits in the fall.

A Great Build
The V8 engine model arrived in great condition and very well packed in the traditional, Teching, classy tin box. The instruction manual was in English and very well presented. The engine constructed beautifully, as expected of all Teching models. I thoroughly recommend this model. Those of us who enjoy mechanical model construction will be delighted.
