    BraZ make resin engines for all 747 models in 1/200 scale:

    They are a lot better than the kit supplied engines (at least the 1/144 scales ones thay I have are).

    They are available from Airline Hobby Supplies in Chandler, Arizona:

    As far as my own 1/144 airliner model adventures are going, while I haven't made any progress lately, I recently bought 3 Revell 767-300s to make into 3 of the QF 767 varieties: a standard GE 767-300, an RR -300 and an Australian Airlines 767-300. I may have to get another kit to convert to a -200.

      Wow!!! Never new these stores existed

      Nathan:

      Many thanks!!! Never knew these stores and custom shops existed. I live in AZ and I did not even know that Airlines Hobby Supplies is here but it looks like he runs a business from his or her home.

      I already have 1 1/200 Hasegawa B744 with RR powerplants and I am obtaining abother one soon finally. Then the BA B744 Wunala and Nalanji project can begin.

      Chris:

      I think Gemini should go ahead with Qantas Wunala and Nalanji project. I believe those aircraft is going to be a big hit for the 1/400 scale. I can sorta see why the decal design for the 1/400 scale might be a challenge. Even for the 1/200 scale Qantas Wunala is going to be a lot of trial and errors for my friend and I, and spending good amount of money on the blank decal sheets to do test prints.

      Dickson:

      Thanks for the information on the Sprit of HK 97. I should know better that in was painted on the B742 and not the B743. My wrong.

      Cheers - Jay

        hi Marco_polo

        Thanks for the reply....
        Yeah Hannants.co.uk are pretty good aren't they? I am looking to get some PW4000 engines from them for the 744 unless Hasegawa is already making them. From memory Hasegawa only makes GE & RR powered 744 1/200 models. Is that correct?

        I m jealous, I want to steal the Malaysian decals from you!! If you do come across another one or if your friend is able to reprint one, please let me know. Otherwise, I think may be I will do a Singapore 744 which does not sound like a bad idea. But then I also want to do a Malaysia 747-3H6...the one and only 9M-MHK (now operating for Dragonair Cargo).

        I would also recommend Braz Model for your engine swap. They have a range of 1/200 engines remaining.....grab it while you can.

        I also have Virgin Atlantic B747-100 rego. G-VMIA (now dismantled) 1/200 hasegawa decals if anyone wants to swap something with me. Please PM me....
