There’s quite a selection of this kind of visible engine kit currently available. Try a search for “visible v8 engine model kit” on Amazon or eBay. I don’t think the quality of the injection molded parts is as good as they were 50 years ago, and some of the supplied hardware (screws and nuts, etc) may be problematic. But if approached with some skill, patience, and a willingness to come up with some creative substitutions, the results could be good. The reviewers on Amazon offer plenty of good advice and caveats — read these reviews before taking the plunge.

There’s something else important to note. There’s no clear windshield, yet the front of the vehicle rises higher than most seated drivers. So there are front and rear-facing driving cameras and two video screens in the cockpit, which, along with the rest of the interior, was designed and dressed by Chris. The dashboard area uses such staples as Visible V8 engine model kit parts (just like the “greeblies” that ILM model makers used for the original movies) and actual Vickers Viscount 700 aircraft reading lights, familiar to all R2 builders.

I am offering a lot of parts for a vintage 1960s Renwal/Revell Visible V8 engine model kit. I'm not sure if the motor runs (assume it doesn't, and be happy if it does), and some of the parts are broken and/or have glue on them. Items of this sort are not my specialty. Please look at the photos to see what is included--this replacement parts only, not a whole kit. My dad received this as a Christmas gift in 1964 or 1965. He assembled it, but then over the years, a kid got into it and put it in its current state. My dad has always liked the 1960s muscle cars and mechanics, and he learned a lot about the operation of a V8 engine from this Renwal Visible V8 model kit.
