With enough time, knowledge, and the right set of tools, Just about anything can be accomplished if you really want your idea to become a reality. With the amount of detail in this miniature engine, we would venture to say that whoever created it really really wanted it to come to fruition.

On the surface, seeing the cold start of the miniature diesel engine is cool, but it isn’t until we get up close and discover all of the components that we can really have a more well-rounded appreciation for the time and effort that has gone into the build.

The creator here really thought of everything down to a miniature timing control adjustment to switch up timing on the fly. The attention to detail that has taken place in the build process of this engine is truly insane.

Check out the video below that takes you through the fruits of some intense and intricate labor that has produced quite the piece to look at and admire.
