Give your engine some spark

Jeffrey Divoll provided another tip, this time for adding a great — but simple — detail to your scale engines. Here’s Jeffrey to explain:

“Many modelers add spark-plug boots to plug wires going into the block, but how about kicking it up a notch by adding spark plugs? First, drill your spark plug holes in the block using a No. 67 bit. Next, cut short pieces of .030-inch white styrene rod for the spark plugs and sand one end to a point. Slip the pointed end into your boot material (the point makes it easier to insert). Insert the plug wire into the other end of the boot. When that’s done, glue the white spark plug into the engine block. That little touch of white spark plug makes the engine pop.”
