About this item

Share This:

Discover how a jet engine works by building your very own working model, with spinning turbo fans and a variable speed control. Built as though hanging beneath a wing the Jet Engine's speed can be controlled by the handle built into the base. Using the simplified instructions, piece together fifty parts to build an engine with movement, lights and sound.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Flawed design! Making this work straight from the box is impossible ! design does not create enough air flow to spin main turbine shaft. Even with the motor connected directly to batteries the turbine will not sustain an already spun (by hand) main shaft . Have read other reviews that claim to have a working version so can only surmise that a component /design change has created the present non-working version! Mr J H aircraft engineer . 02/02/2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Appalling product - do not buy Hard to think where to begin. Having been brought up with airfix kits I assumed this would be a well made and well designed product....oh dear how wrong was I? I purchased this my "engineering fixated" nephew for Christmas and shortly afterwards his father brought it to me to say he couldn't get it to work. I am actually an electrical engineer so I confidently told hm I would fix it but I can't due to the following; The cap on the fan is too tight so the blades cant possibly rotate The on / off button sticks in the ON position The rheostat (speed control) doesn't work The diodes on the printed circuit board get mad hot and have now probably burnt out The propeller on the "turbine" just falls off as theres no way of securing it The "snap shut" outer casing doesn't snap shut at all and just falls off. All in all a complete and utter waste of time and money 20/01/2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by IT DOESN'T WORK!!! Just to add this isn't a fault of Debenhams but my Father put together this model, and it simply does not work. We have also been in touch with Airfix but simply no response and checking online and via social media etc it seems there is a design fault and so really this should not be sold as it won't necessarily work. Essentially, I would like a refund please. How can I get this?! 07/01/2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by great idea but poorly executed as an aero engineer i thought this a great idea to show my son how a jet engine works. the parts in the box are well moulded and look robust but the assembly instructions are dreadful. wiring description is incorrect giving contradicting instructions. When finally assembled, the fan does not blow enough to rotate the fan assembly (even after adjusting fan shaft end float and lubricating bearings). This could be an excellent product to show how it works but the poor instructions and failure to operate correctly mean it needs attention by the manufacturer. 04/01/2015
