This jet engine kit from Haynes is a simplified model of a generic, two-spool turbofan engine. It includes a number of transparent parts so you can easily see the mechanics of the engine.
Haynes provides a clear, easy to follow manual as well as some interesting background information about real jet engines. The model will take about an hour to put together. Although it says it’s recommended for ages 10+, we suggest a few years older and with parental guidance since it has some delicate parts that could easily break during assembly.
Overall a good model that is fairly easy to build and will give you and your child a good understanding of how a real jet engine works.
