PostSubject: Hello from Pittsburgh, PA   Thu 27 Nov 2014, 4:08 am


Came across this site in one of those internet search websites and it was kinda what I was hoping for. Looking for help identifying some gears for a model I have, it's 98% complete/unused but missing two gears which throws everything out of wack, posted in the parts bin for Entex Ford Turbine engine, model 707 gas turbine engine if you have spare parts for it.

Anyways, a little about myself:
-I make springs and wire forms for a living, so if a project you're working on is missing one then hit me up. I'll do my best to help out.
- Enjoy Magic the Gathering cards, been playing since 1994, if you have some and want to off load them I'd be interested.

That's about it, yeah... Anyways, if I can contribute to the board somehow by helping w/ a spring, then keep me posted, and if you can help me identify what I need that would be cool too.

Welcome to Skid's Place Jesse.

How about posting some of your finished models for our members to see?

Welcome to Skid's Place. I have built the Ford Turbine Engine. After finishing the kit I turned it on and it ran for about a minute or so and then stripped the teeth off of some of the gears. Now it's just an awesome display piece.

Do you have an instruction sheet? if you can give me the part numbers of the parts you are missing I might be able to help. Not going to take the model apart to do that but if I can get at the parts I will do a tooth count and other specs you might need. More than glad to help a fellow modeler.
