Whats a good size tubo to start with? Answered

Hi i am wanting to build a small jet engine from home. i'm sure there are many of you doing so or wanting to, I worked for rolls royce automobiles as a tech...yeah i was turning spanners for them, LOL for about 25 years. although i know how a jet engine works and all of the components, i would like to make my own. So i see nobody has posted anything yet??
