I have a fancy to add the top part of a V8 to my current build, a Jenny from Aeronaut. Only the top will be visible(I think!). Having seen the cost of 1/10th scale V8's on the web I need to build my own. Can anyone supply or advise of a source of, a simple, not too detailed, plan of a V8 with dimensions? It doesn't need to be accurate down to the last nut and bolt.

I don't know what your looking for exactly but have you looked at the add ons made for the car builders some RC cars are 1/10scale and they do a whole host of bits.

A quick search brought this up

Yes thanks, I have seen that on ebay. It might be what I want but I think I might have to add a certain amount of engine block, not sure yet as the hull is not yet constructed. The full engine models I found on the web are nearly all around 150 dollars or more! Not what I want to pay as it is more than the boat.

Thanks Haverlock,
I had seen this but obviously forgotten it. For £20 without the exhausts I might go for it!
