The author, Kurt, designed the engine specifically for at home construction using the most basic tools and materials possible. I am currently drawing and assembling the components in CAD before I make the engine. I feel this is necessary as some of the drawings in the book are not as detailed as I would like. Despite allot of written explanation, the assembly of the engine is not clear as many of the pictures are of poor black and white quality. There is however a FD3/64 Model Jet Engine Kit available for those who don't want to make the components.
I found the book an interesting read with good insight into the design and construction of a gas turbine jet engine. New version needed with better quality pictures and more detailed drawings.
