Default Jetex motors

very good site dedicated to them with lots of detail

maybe we could spot some bits, like boxes and spares they may have had at the studio and stuck onto things...

Just a thought, plastic boxes look like window bulges on side of road making machine if not these, similier box lids.

I'll dig my old box out (one of the clear ones) if I can find it! Haven't used the motor since the early '70s

The problem is obtaining fuel pellets if someone wants a working Jetx - a rapier engine should make a suitable substitute for working models.

A jetex is fitted to this model with a clip - making it easy to swap with a rapier engine.
