      Looking for my new project the Revell 1/144 PW JT9D engines. I know there are resin sets, but I'm used to working with plastic.

      P.S. How accurate would you rate the engines from this kit?

      Thanks,

      Engines are accurate for the very early JT9D on the 747. All raised detail. I can trade you a set for a resin set, otherwise my kit will be without engines.

      Welsh Models does a pretty nice set of resin JT9Ds. They go together in a way that does not have all of the seams of the kit engines.

      Dear, Ahmed

      Thank you very much for your offer. But I would like to find them in plastic. By the way, I have two kits which I also would not like to leave without engines.

      Thanks for the information, I saw them and I would like to try my luck with plastic ones.

      I think there should be colleagues who have installed an aftermarket ones instead of originals from the kit.
