      Let me present to you my new artwork of PW JT9D with the early pylons engines in 1/144 scale for Boeing 747 kits conversion.

      Here's the result:



      In result I got a kit of 4 engines:



      A set for each engine consists of 8 parts. The parts are the same for all engines, except for the pylons; they are different for inboard and outboard engines.
      The separation of parts makes painting and assembling as easy as possible, and very fast.



      Assembling and painting:

      To start I primed all the parts



      If you want to get the maximum effect from metal paints, the corresponding part should be covered with black glossy paint and polished



      I don't use model paint except Alclad II, I mix pants for cars, so can't give you the number and brand of the paint. So the choice of paint for each part is up to you.

      Now, mostly, only photos will be attached.







      The pylon Is a special part!
      It should be adapted to your specific kit, it's a complicated procedure, but be patient.
      BTW, it is very useful to insert a couple of small pins to simplify further attaching the engine to the wing:



      I attached it to Revell 744 kit wing





      The pylon was painted Boeing gray






      One more thing. I also designed a decal for pylons and spinners.



      After applying the decal pylon is ready.





      The same with spinner


      Start assembling


      One more źdecal╗




      While it's easy attached the masking tape for future


      The nacelle assembly


      Hot sections assembly




      Final assembly









      Thank you for your attention!

      These are beautiful! Great work! I saw a set sell on eBay...may we obtain a set there, or should I send a PM for instructions?

      Very nice!! Those are beautiful.

      Don't forget that the early JT9Ds had spring loaded blow-in doors around the front end of the fan cowling. Not sure when they were eliminated.

      Guys,

      I just received the PW JT9's engine set from Sergey,

      Stunning, great attention to detail, no resin cleanup, all parts have small slots to fit properly,
      the intakes are super thin and finely engraved.

      What you see on the pics is exactly what you get, excellent packaging too !

      Highly recommended !

      All the best,
      Cesar

      Very early, 1972ish I want to say. Those sucker doors made it tougher for them to make noise specs, so they made a neweer inlet lip that was a bit thicker. It also solved a lot of the surging issues during crosswinds.
