Is it possible to make a miniature turbojet engine?

Which has proper air compressor that produces enough thrust to support a 6kg model? And I expect the overall size of such an engine being 15cm in diameter and 30-40cm in length. It may vary but is it possible?
I understand how the engine works overall, but I'd like to know more about how each module of it works so I can probably build one myself, such as the compressor.

Yes models of all types of jet engine are made and sold for RC modellers.

Some examples on sale in the UK

this is one of the best model engineering sources for engine plans.
....but buy in the turbine wheels.
It is POSSIBLE to build your own, but you need a lot of mechanical engineering experience, and quite a bit of equipment too.
