Teknics R-1820 Engine is a straightforward model of a fairly commonly used WWII powerplant.

30 resin parts and a single brass-etched fret make up the set. All the resin parts are very nicely cast. Nine spare cylinders are provided - might be some interesting possibilities for the spares! The simplicity of the instructions reflect the straightforward construction of the set. Painting instructions are included.

This is a nice little set that will add character and detail to your WWII bombers.
