According to Tim, the function of this website is as follows:
"This web site is dedicated to ALL jets made up to 1945 and their important variants, and ALL jets and their important variants under construction up to 31/12/1945.
What is meant by under construction?, any part of the aircraft which was made and ment to be used in a flying prototype and/or variant (Not mock-ups). For some aircraft hard facts are very difficult to come by, this is specially true for German aircraft, so I have taken into account the chaotic state and the prevailing political situation by 1945 with in the German state, also the wish of the Allied forces to keep to themselves the technologies they had found, as well as keeping their populations from the information of the very advanced nature of the German war effort, this added with common sense has meant, for example the inclusion of the Blohm&Voss P.212 but not the Me262 HG III."

It appears that Tim intends to add to his aircraft coverage in the future.
Overview with photos and drawings of jet engines of Germany, Italy, Hungary, France, Japan, and the USSR. There is a more detailed coverage of the Junkers jet engines.
For the modeler, and extensive list of kits is provided.
Short lists of links and books.
