Retrojet 75 from Tony Nijhuis Designs


The Retrojet 75 came about from a plethora of requests for TND to design a conventional high wing trainer specifically for a Turbine engine.

We were amazed at the number of modellers who were either owners of a turbine engine or were willing to buy one but were uneasy about install their 'pride n joy into anything other than a familiar and conventional looking model. Even more amazing, we couldn't find a conventional looking trainer kit anywhere else on the market! TND have now put that right with effectively the first conventional high wing trainer designed specifically for Turbines.

It gives superb reassurance and a wonderful stable platform to either test your new turbine or be that elusive turbine model 'hack ' you always wanted. The engine range is diverse and the model will take anything from a Wren 54 right up to the 80 size of turbine. The prototype was designed around the new Wren 75 Jubilee, and has proved an excellent choice, in terms of value, reliability and ease of starting".

The plans are supplied on 2 large sheets of quality extended AO sizes paper and the VAC set includes a white HIPS nose cone. The CNC pack is very complete. All the pre cut parts to build the complete fuselage, tailplane and wing have been included.
The additional wood pack is main wing sheeting and spar material, all supplied in 48" length so no splicing to make long stock is required for this model.

Although this is a traditional builders model with a built up fuselage, wing and sheet tail and fin surfaces, the plan is very dependant on the CNC pack being used (almost kit quality rather than plan pack). All the information is available on the plan to scratch build, however, some builders may wish to use their experience is substitute materials to assist in their traditional build. As with all of our designs, you can download from this web site, a series of construction photos of the prototype build, which will be invaluable to those novice builders out there.
