Could it be the mythical jet engine's we have all been waiting for? Well according to the builder it is. Now this makes month 5 of the overdue calender and yet i am sitting here with alas, no jet engines in front of me. This is the apparent state of my motors as we speak as i have been told "THEY" are getting balanced.........AGAIN.
For the last three months i have been bound in a rather large email battle with the builder. I did manage to speak with him once on the phone when I think he must have picked it up in a moment of weakness, finding me at the other end left him a little lost for words, but what words he did speak were all lies. To cut a short story long, he promised to send them in a week, that was two weeks ago. it was only through threat of legal action and a proposed visit from myself that he has now said he will send them to me by or on the 23rd May, balanced or not. I have advised him to send them regardless as I have a very good friend here who is a Turbine engineer - and the current world record holder for the fastest jet powered radio controlled car - Brett "Smithy" Smith who has said he will balance them. As always I will not be holding my breath as i have come to enjoy living and have lined up some lawyers to see when I head over. Whether I go or not depends on the builder, if he does not make this date I will be booking a flight and seeing him personally. This poses two problems, the money I will be using to head over there is the money I have saved for building the jetluge. So if i head over there the question is, can i complete the jetluge once i get the engines? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
By the way, once all this is over with and I have my motors I will be making all the correspondence with the builder available for you all to read. It is rather entertaining, if not a great joke.
