The engine consists of an eccentric shaft, rotor, and housing, just like the real thing, and the shaft can be rotated by a motor or by hand to make it work like the real engine.

The intake and exhaust ports, spark plugs and apex seals are reproduced just like the real engine. The ignition is represented by a light brick, which glows in conjunction with the rotor’s movement.

The model will help you understand a rotary engine, which can be difficult to understand, by building and playing the model. The model engine works beautifully and can be used as a kinetic art.This model is submitted to the Lego Ideas (August 19). I would like to ask your support.
