Product description

With spinning turbo fans and a variable speed control, this Airfix Jet Engine Model Kit is a brilliant way to understand the working features of the jet engine. 

You can 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 that is built into the base. Using the simplified instructions, piece together over fifty parts to build an engine with movement, lights and sound.

With 50 parts this working model is easily constructed into a really fun item.

  • Size: 300 x 265 x 145 mm
  • 50 parts
  • Batteries required: 4 x 1.5v C
  • Skill level: 2
  • Educational construction kit
  • Perfect for learning how a jet engine works

Airfix Model Jet Engine is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs improving I put the model kit together only to find out that it did not work properly as the fanblade did not move so i took it apart and put it back together again and even put grease on it and it still does not work unfortunately.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing product Purchased for my grandson and assembled with the help of an engineer from Rolls Royce who works on aircraft. Engine does not work efficiently enough to power product. Considering returning it for refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not buy again! I bought the jet engine and the combustion engine for my partner for Christmas - the combustion engine was a joy to put together and he enjoyed every minute of it. However, the jet engine had very vague instructions and left him guessing how to put some parts together. Electrically it conforms to none of the usual standards in basic electronics (no red or black wires) and at the end of all this it broke after its first use. Also the instructions expect you to have a heat gun to use on it! Would not purchase again - go for the combustion engine!!
