Interior of the 1/4 F-1 engine.

I was surprised to see that it was fitted with an injector; a Rocketdyne retiree once told me that F-1 injectors were prized wall decorations, and it seems like someone would have been able to "poach" this injector rather easily.

Note how much brighter and cleaner this injector looks than the one in the full engine.
