The 4-stroke engine symbolises the modern world, being the engine powering most cars since the beginning of the 20th Century. Once built this marvellous kit moves as an internal combustion engine does in which the piston completes four separate strokes—intake,compression, power, and exhaust. All the movement can be seen through the cut-outs in the model.
