Broken Model Aeroplane Engine

This is a model aeroplane diesel engine bought for the recipient when he was 11, by his Dad. They spent a long time trying to make it work, but never quite got it to run.

"even though it represented fraustration and a bit of failure, it was kind of like a, indication of trust."

"It should have been worn out, years ago, it should have flown little planes up and down the park, annoying the neighbours, but it’s sitting there, it’s completely obsolete and outdated, but it’s got no real wear and tear on it, so for an object like that, if it had a personality, I think it would feel pretty undervalued and left on the shelf."
