Daimler 1885 Modelengine,Replica, scale ca. 1:3

casting kits are now available

The original engine was one of the first engines, constructed by Gottlieb Daimler and used in an very early motorcarriage "The Motorkutsche". This engine was called the "Standuhr". It was the first "fast running" petrol engine; that means, it ran with approximate 700 RPM !
The 125 year old technique and the very interesting and unusual valve gear with a grooved disc , all works perfect in this modelengine. You can build this engine on a small lathe. The internal flywheels are 95mm in diameter. The laser cut grooved disc is also part of the casting kit.

A CD is available with over 350 photos of this engine. You will find pictures of every part during the machining process and assembly. An excellent addition to the drawings.

Hight of the engine : 320mm
Flywheels: 95mm diameter , Bore: 20mm

De Dion ca. 1903

The "De Dion 1903" from Classic Motors is a detailed copy of one of the first car engines built in large numbers. It is in scale 1:4 ; has much tourque at low revvs and is therefore a very good choice for a scale car of this period. This slow running 17cc fourstroke engine has an automatic inlet valve and an exhaust valve operated by a single cam. It runs excellent on 2-stroke mixture and can be used with spark ignition or glow ignition.
A CD is available with over 100 photos of "building the De Dion". A very good help as you see each detail and assembly.

Bore x stroke 25mm x 30mm; app 180mm high

Ignition Coils and supplies for modelengines

  • 4V to 6V operation
  • 36mm dia. 51mm high. Weight 150gm.
  • Low cost

Two versions are available:
NOVUS-1   single output   
NOVUS-2   dual output (pictured)   
These coils need control over 'closed dwell' time for best efficiency and to avoid overheating. We recommend using our electronic module MIC-1 together with magnetic sensor MRS-1 or MHS-1. Conventional contact points can be used, but make sure there is current limiting in the primary circuit to protect the coil and wiring should engine stop with the points closed. If in doubt, please contact us for advice. These coils do not have a built-in capacitor as it is not required for use with a MIC-1 electronic module. For use with points, we will supply a suitable component free-of-charge on request. Be sure to switch the coil off, if the engine stopps with points closed; otherwise the coil can be destroyed by heat. The use of MIC-1 with a sensor avoids this .

Miniature Ignition Controller MIC-1A  Complements the Novus-1, Novus-2 ignition coils for users wanting a contactless solution. Magnetic sensor input. Auto switch-off if engine comes to rest with the sensor active.Operates on 4.5 to 12 volts so can be used with other coils. Dimensions 45mm x 30mm x 15mm . Connections by screw terminals Integral static timing light.
