      Does anyone know where I can find models or replicas of turbofan engines, off wing, no cowls?

      I don't think one exists. I've seen a couple of models, but they were of military prop planes, nothing equivalent of today's turbofan engines. Someone please prove me wrong.

      The only resin jet engines I have heard about are from Trumpeter's 1/32 A-10A Thunderbolt II, which is provided with 2 detailed TF-34-GE-100 resin engines. Of course they have nothing in relation with civilian turbofans but they may look fine on... say... a Doyusha-Nitto 1/100 747, 767, DC-10 or L-1011. Or even a AIM72 1/72 747, 767, DC-10.
