I figured it would shake itself apart before melting, but it did cross my mind.
Then I realised, it probably wouldn't actually WORK

Sa-weeeeet! Is it me though, or does it look like a spaceship model for a sci-fi movie? A new Star Wars film or 2001: Space Odyssey?

Rolls-Royce Reveals The World's Only LEGOŽ Jet Engine
Really, I was building jet engines from Lego in the 60s. It was the red brick with the 8 thingys on it.

I wonder if that got to the part where you get 3/4 of the way through building it before realising that you had missed out an all important brick and couldn't go any further until you dismantled half of it to fix the error.
And I'll be willing to bet that after building it a few times you wouldn't be able to do it without the instructions (minus the outer and middle pages of course).
