Making an innovative flame gulping engine can be a tough task in the hobby list, but this is one engineer that has been committed to the task and he has finally done it. He has created an engine that runs on the so much loved drink, the alcohol. He wanted to make something different and he is there, making the model engine that is running on alcohol. Now there is a struggle for the last drop of it, but because it is fuel efficient it will not spend much while working. The idea is great and the build is so great too because all parts have been made especially for this engine and they look so cool.
The plans for the engine come back from 1950 from a magazine. There has been everything explained and those exact same plans were used in the manufacturing of this one. After sixty years nothing has been changed in the plan and that is what is cool about this engine. Only one modification in the castings has been done because the builder AKA YouTube user Model Workshop was not sure that the parts as they were are still available. Other than that nothing else was changed.
There is an alcohol tank where you will pour the fuel, and it is amazing how the tank has been so cleanly made and how everything that is on the rig has its own purpose. The principal of working on this model engine of the piston is the same as the normal engine, it is just a little simplified. The alcohol burns at the end of the rope that is soaked in it and the flame enters in the piston head. That is where the heat does its thing, it is not an explosion that is going on, it is a heat process that sounds too awesome when it is running.
