      Hello,

      does anyone have a drawing wich shows how I need to cut a Tu-204-100 fuselage into a Tu-204-300 fuselage?
      I searched the net but I could not find one. Only drawings showing each one itself.
      Yes, I could develop it myself, but something finished, perhaps official, would be great.
      Thank you in advance!

      Uwe

      After much searching, I found this: https://tehclub.site/storage/products/11-20/tu-204.jpg#t=0.1

      The 5.95m difference appears to be almost, but not quite, a 50/50 split front/rear.


      P.S.

      I was able to measure the noted gaps using a graphics program.

      The ratio of the front/rear change is about 19:15 (34 total divsion units).

      FWD change: 19/34 x 5950mm/144 scale = 23.1mm

      AFT change: 15/34 x 5950mm/144 scale = 18.2mm

      These figures should be ball-park for what you're after...


      P.P.S.

      I found another image from Shipbucket that I modified to illustrate something else.



      The FWD chop is easy enough - between the front cargo door and 2nd cabin door.

      The AFT chop is actually over the wing in front of the 3rd cabin door. (Note the same distance relationship between the 3rd and 4th pax doors and rear cargo door on both versions) But you'll have to chop you model somewhere after the wing fairing, so you'll have to use decals for your pax windows!

      All the best with your conversion.

      Cheers!

      Thank you Scotty,

      great information.
      What you did with the Shipbucket images was on my to-do-list for the next week-end.
      :-)
      Perfect.
      Thank you.

      Uwe
