jet drives

i'm converting a 1/12 abrams lower hull into an amphibious tank to go with my 1/24 amphi-tank

i'm puting a jet drive into it for propulsion

my question is -

can i make my own jet drive unit using plastic plumbing pipe ?

regards nick

It can be done, but I have yet to see one that matches the commercial ones for power and efficiency. I have used two in my LVTP-7 build in the tank section.
