PostSubject: Ford A-707 Turbine Engine by Entex   Mon 25 Feb 2013, 5:09 am

Ok this is all behind me and I am glad. The kit is 1/8Th scale made by Entex. They designed the kit with 17 gears to turn all the moving parts. It was very complicated and trying to get them all lined up and true. When I was all done with it I turned it on to photograph the lit up combustion chamber. The kit ran for about 15 seconds and then stripped a gear. The electric motor runs at a very high speed but nothing turns. I have a feeling the plastic drive gear on the motor striped. Mine is now a static display piece. Iam not taking it apart to fix it. Not worth the effort. If someone gives you a kit take it. If you have to buy it, run away from this one.

The kit in Entex number 8480
