The Retrojet 75 came about after Tony Nijhuis received requests to design a conventional high wing trainer specifically for a turbine engine. Tony was surprised by the number of modellers who were either owners of a turbine engine or were willing to buy one but were uneasy about putting their pride and joy in anything other than a familiar and conventional looking model.
Based on his Sky 120 trainer, this then is the first conventional high wing machine designed specifically for a turbine engine. It gives superb reassurance and a wonderful stable platform to either test your new turbine or be that elusive turbine hack you always wanted.
The engine range is diverse and the model will take anything from the Wren 54 right up to an 80-size turbine.
The plan, laser/cnc kit and VAC-formed high impact polystyrene nose cone are available from www.tonynijhuisdesigns.co.uk , the full package is £280 inc UK P&P.
