      I have a set of Braz JT9-D engines for the 747-200 in 1/144. But after putting all four engines next to one another the pylons are all the same size. The pylons for the inboard engines are longer and outboard shorter. Am I experiencing poor quality control here or is this indeed supposed to be the case? Any info you fellas can provide would be appreciated.

      Just wait a few more days, and you will see the JT-9D engines I did for the 747 SP.
      I know that the trailing edges of the pylons are different to those for the -100/-200 aircraft, but I will modify them after the Telford show to fit the classic 747s.

      Probably bad QC, I've seen pictures with different length pylons.

      Well, it appears that I am not the only one who has run into this. I guess - according to Braz at least - is the standard with regard to the P&W engines for the 1/144 747. Quite disappointing. I couldn't figure how he got it right on the GE CF6 engines for the 747 but didn't on the P&W.

      Kurt,

      Are you going to release your P&W engines as an accessory item or are these only sold as part of the 747 classic kit?
