This is my Junkers Jumo 004 jet engine taken from the Trumpeter Me 262 kit. I have built it a couple of years ago when I was absolutely into the Me 262 jet fighter (and still I am).
I'm lucky to live quite close to Munich, where a fully equipped Me 262 is on static display. As far as I know it's the only one worldwide to show a fully plumbed and wired turbojet engine.
I started by taking lots of pictures and then began to learn how the jumo works. I always want to understand what I'm building and so I tried to gain as much information as possible. Best choice and most helpful here was the Jumo 004 maintenance manual, which is available as pdf on CD.
So I proudly show my result here! It is a real enrichment to my display cabinet and I like it very much. However, at a closer look I'm quite sure that many of you guys out there can do a better job! For those who want to give it a try I have released a very detailed "plumbing guide" in the "Articles" section now, which is done as a 40 pic walkaround gallery. I recommend to download the whole thing and after a few "walkarounds" absolved you will see that it is not as complicated by far as it may appear at the first look! A bit time consuming maybe, but it's absolutely worth!!
Looking forward to seeing cool jumos here soon!
