Afternoon all, have these two -

https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hasegaw ... rt--984891

..and from what I can find online, the first should have 4 x PW PW4056, while the second should have 4 x GE CF6-80C2B1F.

But just checked and in both kits the engine sprue is E, identical -

So which is right, or are both engine cowlings close enough in this scale for it not to matter?

THIA, Jamie

Jamie,

I have build a couple of the Hasegawa B747s, It looks to me the kit supplied engines are GEs, the PW cowls and hot sections are slightly shorter respectively, in 1/200 it would be about 3-4mm overall I'd say. If you have a close look at the box images you will see the ANsett engines have shorter cowls and jet pipes.

Braz Models released a set of PWs in 1/200 some time ago, I am not sure if they are still in production.

Thanks Ray, 3-4mm in 1/200 is pretty decent so might find an alternate GE-engined scheme for the Ansett kit.

If you want to sell or swop for the Ansett Decals I’m interested.
