Default Vee Drive for turbine

Hi Fellow Modelers;
Does anyone make a vee drive to fit a model turbine engine. This would be a set up like the real "Miss Budwiser". I know I am really reaching on this one but it is a big world out there.

Only boxes I have seen are custom. There are a few mass produced boxes but lacking the quality deserving a turbine.

Another consideration will be the output shaft speeds. All the turboprop jet motors I have seen only turn a max 7000rpm which is nothing in Boat shaft speeds (a Zenoah will turn 16000+). (Guess you could say that I have looked into a similar setup myself).

Let me know if you have found an option that will deliver a better shaft rpm as that was the main thing slowing my interest
