      Hello Folks,

      Took me almost 12 years and few months of delay to original schedules to finish Dc-8 JT3 and JT4 engine master. Hope it won't take as long to cast them! ;-)







      Finished also B777 PW, GE and older RR engine cowlins. ....but until I'll not be able to have a copy of future release Zvezda B777-300er kit, won't be able to make a perfect pylon fit to wing.

      Cheers,
      Ivo

      Looking very sharp Ivo. For what DC-8 versions can these be used?

      Ivo..I've got a Revell DC-8 that is in dire need of your JT3s. When do you expect they'll be ready for ordering?

      Thanks Ahmed for fixing my post. One day I'll manage to understand how posting correctly thumbnails and photos..... ;-)

      Alan, hopefully by mid August. By the way, thay are designed to fit with Minicraft kit. Don't know how well or bad they'll fit with Revell kit.

      Hi Ivo,

      I think you forgot to mention another DC8 kit (well this kit is not officially announced to be available yet, but will be soon), though I don't know the fitting as well.

      Greetings!

      From the looks of them, if the scale size is correct, the JT4A should work just fine for a -21, -31, -32 or -33. The JT3C, being smaller, is for a series -11/-12.

      In order to build any -40 series, the size of the chin scoop is narrower and the rear cowling and the reverser and ejector cutout shape are round where the shape on the JT4A is more squared off.

      Although it would be difficult to do this perfectly for parts this small, the pylon on the inboard engines curves noticeably inward where it attaches to the wing underside as it extends rearward, so since the ejector rail has to extend straight back, the pylon has an increasingly outward cant to it as it goes rearward. This makes for a very complicated shape. To understand it, you would need to look at photos.

      Regards,
      Jeff Jarvis

      Now both DC-8 engine type are finaly available.

      For more info, visit http://www.brazmodels.com/mcdonnell%20douglas.html

      As soon as I'll receive a Zvezda B777 test shot, I'll be able to finish all other engine versions: GE, PW and RR.

      Cheers,
      Ivo

      ...just received my Zvezda B777 kit. Hurrah!!! Now, I "just" need to find the time to finish my GE, PW and RR engine sets by modifying the pylons in order to have them perfectly fit with kit wing-pylon bay.....

      Great work, Ivo,
      I am very pleased, when I can use the GE 90-94 for my Zvezda conversions like 772 er and 773 std.
      Thanks Ortwin

      That looks promising. I do have your 787 engines which look great as well, but I haven't put them together yet.

      By the way, if you decide to make a cockpit cabin for the 777, I am interested as well.

      Sweet looking Ivo

      I can't wait to see them. If they are anything like the 787 engines you did we need to stock up on 777s!

      Hello Folks,

      Took me way much longer then planed but finally I’ve done them. Masters are complete and resin production is in progress. First sets will be available at next Telford U.K. I.P.M.S. Show 12-13 Nov. 2016. On-line through Bra.Z Models web site and/or distributors from 28 Nov. 2016

      All I can say is Wow I'll have to order a couple

      Can someone tell the difference between Braz's GE engine and the Zvezda GE kit engine?
      Is the Braz engine for the Freighter version?

      Thanks for any help.

      Cheers

      Andrew,

      Zvezda kit comes with GE-90-115 (huge massive engines). These are good for a B777-300ER or B77-200LR or B777-200F.
      All others, B777-200/ER and B777-300(sans suffix) require one of the “smaller” engines: GE-90-94, RR Trent 800 or PW4090.

      Hope this helps.

      Ivo

      Hi Ivo,
      I am very pleasured about your 772 engines. When I want to preorder them on your homepage, the shopping cart always shows Boeing 737 Cfm 56B engines, not the GE 90, PW 4000 or Trent 800 engines, maybe you can correct this enabling me to make my preorder for Telford.
      Thanks Ortwin

      I'll have a couple from you too but can't guarantee I'll be at Telford, maybe I'll just have to buy them later. They look great and can't wait to see them in the resin.
