This book is a collection of vintage articles on the subject of engineering for model vehicles, with information on the design, construction, and installation of small engines. Profusely illustrated and full of invaluable information, this volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in model engineering, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "Smoke Rings", "A Model Steam Plant for a Coal-Fired Steamer", "A Carburettor for the 'Busy Bee'", "Carburettor Design", "Almost a Swarm!", "Compensation", "The Variable Jet", "'Air Bleed'", "A Useful Device", "Venner Lightweight Alkaline Accumulators", "A Simple Photographic Rangefinder", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on model building.
