      Hey everyone,

      Just curious has anyone built or know if the Braz 747 Classic RR engines will somehow fit the AA B747-100/200?

      Thanks
      Victor

      Can not imagine, that the Braz should not fit. If you order your AA 747-100 with PW and the Braz RR, you only have to compare the shape of the line, where the engine is fixed to the wing. With a bit of sanding and puttying, this should work well.

      The alignment pins might be off, otherwise just sanding/puttying.

      Why not? Although the BraZ parts don't have any location aids, the photos of the kit engines on the Authentic Airliners website clearly show alignment pins on the pylons. https://www.authentic-airliners.de/epages/64205758.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/64205758/Products/K144-49PW

      The obvious way to go at it is to transfer the measurements of the AA alignment pins to the BraZ pylons then drill for plastic rod or metal wire.

      Incidentally the AA kit is listed as "currently unavailable".
