Several questions involving a homemade miniature jet engine.

Hey guys. I am new to engineering and I came to this because I wanted to make my own miniature jet engine. I have a limited knowledge of physic but I wish to broaden it through this idea.
Now I know that this was made before for RC models, but I want to actually make one so I understand how they work, and I decided to start here.
Here are my questions:
1. How exactly does a typical jet engine compressor work?
2. I believe there are several types of compressors used in jet engines. If I want to make one for a small sized engine, say, about 20cm wide and 50cm long, which type of compressor works best, and which factors define it?

Try googling "designs for model jet engines" there seems to be a lot of information out there.

This should answer any questions, if not, you might need to get a link to the patent processes and office. :)

Best wishes to you

5-minute jet engine
anything beyond this is a matter of ingenuity, creativity, and tinkering (aka, engineering)
