We’ve only just got gas lights around here, a fab lab sounds brilliant, guess I can dream.
I’m still trying to battle my way through the schoolboy errors, every days a school day.

Looks a nice turbine Wayne but never herd of them to be honest, one thing I did thing it's a whopping size(dimensions) for a 30Ib output anyone building a jet or s boat like K7 would have to take this into consideration. But I'll certainly keep the

I’ve not heard anything about them either Al, for that sort of money it would make a cracking retirement present to myself in a few years time. The turbine I had been looking at was considerably more expensive 👍

By way of a brief update, my LEGO Idea Bluebird now has over one hundred supporters well within the initial 60 days allowed, which means it received an additional 365 days to gather support. Still a very long way to go, but it's the fastest start any of my own projects has had and very respectable. Thank you to anyone who has already supported it, every little helps. Just to clarify, supporting it doesn't cost anything - it's not a kickstarter type site, it's one LEGO themselves operate and people submit ideas to.
