The late Paul White was a race car and experimental aircraft sheet metal fabricator as well as a prolific modeler. He built IndyCars, worked for Dan Gurney’s All-American Racers on the Formula 1 car in the 1960s, and fabricated parts for Rare Bear and other winning air race aircraft. Mr. White also made scale flying model airplanes from the usual materials plus aluminum and carbon fiber. He scratch-built this running jet engine in about one month without the use of CNC machining just to see if he could get a jet engine to run. It did. He even built a scale looking engine stand for it.
