what exactly are you planning to do? Build a scale model of a gas turbine? That seems rather hard, IMO. Especially when you throw in all that fine print there. Ever try a volcano?
But really, sems like there's a lot of technical stuff involved. That would be a challenge for me to come up with all that stuff, and I've had a little over a year in physics. I KNOW I'm incapable of building something like that over a small time frame, but if you think you can do it, go for it. It would be awesome.
