I had always been in the dark when it came to jet engines, and with one of my phD siblyings only telling me little of what I really wanted to know, I asked a some modelers what book they would recomend to get started. Each pointed to Kurt Schreckling's book and now I point to it as well. He gives a basic introduction into thermaldynamics and other information that is needed to understand the "why's" of the book, but always keeping in mind teh truth that most people who read it are not enginers or physics majors. The book also gives explainations of the asembly prossess the tools one would need, the parts, and in the back of the book: the plans. The book cold almost be called "The Jetmodelers Cook Book"

I found the book easy to follow and I've found that Kurt Schreckling and Keith Thomas have made an excellent job of bringing the complexities of the gas turbine to a level the average person can understand and learn from.

Overall this is a good book on the basic theory and construction of a model gas turbine and I would recommend it to others with a similar interest. The book looks a little thin, but it is packed with lots of good information in small print.

I could not give the book 4 stars because there are problems with the type setting of the equations. If you already have some mathematical and engineering experience, you can probably figure out what is intended. Otherwise some of the equations could be a little confusing.

This is a very in-depth book. Kurt Schreckling knows what he is talking about and it's an easy read.

It`s good book, with some explanations, but a little old(1994), it`s a excellent book for beguiners who don`t know nothing about model turbines.
