      Hi all,

      Here are a few good photos of the A320 NEO engines by a fellow member who would like to remain anonymous at this time. I would like to thank him for his time and support. I'm sure they will be a great help to many of you. Hope you like them.


      Regards,

      Those are the Paper Weight Purepower ones, right? I've heard they have a 100% fuel burn improvement over the CFM.

      Thx Ahmed. Will these photos end up in the Airbus walkarounds file? Looking forward to the Revell Germany kit release sometime in 2018.

      Is that announced, or hoping?

      I hope those pics end up in the walk around section, and what color green/blue would that be on the intake?

      Keep em separated!

      Announced. Not showing on the Revell.de web site though. Tower Hobbies has a Revell A320Neo and A321Neo listed for pre-order with a delivery date of January' Likely optimistic.

      There was a post on britmodeller stating the Revell NEO won't be available for some time due to licencing issues. They were scheduled for release this year but that's been pushed back 2018, possibly autumn if we're lucky.

      Nice photos too, Russian cockpit green maybe for the intake colour?

      I'd like to get them in the Walkarounds section but I'd like to get a few more photos of the whole plane first, if possible. If/when I do get them, I will definitely create a page.

      Hi Folks,

      I understood there are two engine options for the A319NEO/A320NEO/A321NEO. One engine from P&W and one from CFM. Is this correct?

      What are the differences for us modelers? Are there differences on the outside?

      PAS offers some "NEO" engines as resin parts. Which engine type do they reflect?

      Questions over questions. Who can give us more information?

      Greetings Daniel

      Currently on the line:
      B747SP Air Namibia or Corsair (not yet decided)
      B777-200LR Air India
      B777-200 American One World
      ...and lots more...

      There are two types that I know of, these are the PW1127GA. They are geared turbofans and as such have larger than average (conventional) fan blades. I believe the PW1100 series is also used on the CSeries. At least in the US the launch customer, Spirit Airlines has had teething problems with these engines. First with some kind of bearing seal and secondly they were altitude restricted but I don't remember why. Those of you in DFW can see the static display of 2-3 Spirit NEOs with plastic bags where the engines were.

      The CFM Leap engine is the other option. In the US you will find them on Frontier and Virgin America aircraft. I don't believe the Leap is geared and the fan diameter is smaller. Externally I think it looks more like the CEO CFM engine than the PW. Also pretty sure the CFMs have not encountered the same problems as the PW.

      Hazarding a guess on the PAS engines... to me they look like PWs, but I've only seen pics online.

      Aside from the engine choices all NEOs come with sharklets, externally everything else is IDENTICAL to a CEO bird.

      Sorry to dissapoint some of you but PAS models Neo engines pylons are completely wrong, at the time they were released the real thing wasnt even show and Andreys resin set was the only option at the time, i already built a pair of A320s with them but compared to the real ones you will notice the differences, i really enjoyed building my nEOS but ive saw some photos from Rocast upcoming ones and believe me theyre beautifully shaped and far more accurate pylons.
