      Question for the smart guys here. If I want to take the kit and make a 190 conversion, in 1/100th scale (and my math isn't the best), what would the differences in length be of fuselage and wings etc???


      Thanks for the help

      The fuselage is the least of your worries. You need new wings and bigger engine nacelles as well. The 170 series and 190 series are more like first cousins than brothers.

      As Jennings said, almost complete different animals. The MLG and stabs are also different.
      It will be the same amount of work, like converting a 737classic into a NG.
      But for whom it may be of any interest, I am just making a 1/100 E170.

      Well I know its going to be work so I have 3 kits on order but was really looking for dimensional differences that I can scale out. I understand the 190 is a bigger jet. Trying to see what all I can do with the Tamiya kit.

      First, GOOGLE "Embraer E jet family "and you will find a wikepedia page which has a specifications tab which will give you dimension specs for the entire family. The specs are given in metric and linear measure. Keep in mind that 1/100 is a metric scale just as 1/125 and 1/50 are. So you also need to convert or have a metric scale ruler.

      Good Luck
