Talking Ferrari 430 engine and the Enzo V12 engine

Hi All

here is what I am currently busy designing and working on at the moment.




The end produect will be a cut away version of Ferrari 430 engine and the Enzo V12 engine

I know that there is a model that has been done of a cut away engine but it only has pistons that move and no valves or cams and I am busy working on the the model to have valves and cams that work and move to the correct timing.

This model is going to take a bit of time, the piston deisgn is complete, the one part that is going to take time is the head.

The conrod's are been worked on at the moment and the block with the v engine offset.

Update time, I have been a busy at work and also family things as well, but here we go, the block of the engine is about 90% complete, the timing from the crank to the cam's is 60% complete, Crank is 98% complete firing order is as per the F140C type engine, just the assembly jig needs to be worked out and set up.

Here is a few screen shots of the engine.
I have now decided to base the model close to the Ferrari V12 Engine of the 599 GTB Fiorano, the F140C engine but it will not be identical as paper does have it's limits and also what I want to show as cut away's.







The scale blocks in front of the engine is a 10x10x10mm cube.



More to follow.

The one problem that I have is that I do not have any technical specs in sizes of the engine length and so on.

The info that I do have the firing order, the owners manual in what is noted in there.
So I am going by what can be printed and worked with on A4 and Letter size paper as to keep the costs down, and this is also 160 gram paper as well to keep it's shape.

At the moment I have 38 designed unique pages of which many will be printed 12x but I would guess the unique page are going to be up to +/- 80 pages, and then the multi printing after that.

Fun fun fun ....

One thing that I am trying to avoid is the use of steel in any form, but I have to change my view to that with regard to the springs for the valves, but that will custom made so that anyone can make springs for the engine at the end of the day.
