This miniature machine museum has tiny models that actually run


Maybe you built models as a kid, maybe even radio-controlled models with hobby shop gas engines that went “brraaaaap!” But you’ve probably never seen a 1:6-scale 1932 Duesenberg SJ made from 6000 hand-made parts with a real, gasoline-powered 32-valve straight-eight engine and a working three-speed transmission. Or an 18-cylinder radial aircraft engine the size of a salad bowl that will also burn gas and make power.

Impressive collection AND free admission. Love the sprint car built by Jim Riggle. Repping Novi, MI with that powerplant! Check out the tiny beast in action:
