      After many years of 3D kit designing for the well known "big guys", finally, hade some time for my old Bra.Z Models resin sets.

      Despite Olympic gold medal for messy and dirty-dusty working desk, in this picture their are most on my new releases. How many are you able to spot? :-)

      Not sure if I'll be able to bring them all in time for Telford IPMS show. The only one so far confirmed to be available at Telford, are the Tu-144 engines for ICM kit and ERJ-175 fuselage for the Hasegawa kit.

      After this first batch on new items, next one will be: A380 engines, A340 winglets, A340 CFM engines, DC-10and L-1011 engines and other stuff which is been sitting on my working desk for centuries...

      Cheers,

      Hello Ivo

      good news, these A380 engines, looking forward to them. Will there be corrected Flapfairings for Revell's A380, too? Because the kit ones are much to long. Think it is all 1:144, right?

      Any chance we can purchase your products straight from your web site?

      Hi Ivo, some nice new releases there. I'll echo Walts question about ordering from your website, those 737NG engines look very tempting.

      Marcel, yes, they all will be in 1/144 scale. I do have some other 1/72 scale stuff but until Revell will officially announce it, have to keep them in drawer. Good idea, need to check with Airbus material on A380 flap fairing....

      Walter and Jeff, I'm re-designing entirely my web site and will have on-line shop possibility. Won't be able to have it done before end of November.

      Cheers,
      Ivo

      Very nice Ivo! If the price is acceptable I will certainly obtain some the products I see on your bench.

      May I assume that the cabin plugs are for a 787-9? And the large engine pieces above them are GE engines for the 787?

      Final question, are the nose sections for the airbuses hollow?

      Regards,

      Ingmar

      A set of Pratt & Whitney JT3D engines for the DC-8-50 and -61 would be nice...

      Ingmar, yes, they are fuselage plugs for the B787-9 version and engines are Genx. Also Airbus nose sections are hollow.

      Cheers,
      Ivo

      Alan, all new items, including B787-9 plugs and engines should be available starting from Telford show (Nov. 8th). If not, few days after....

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Ivo

      Thanks Ivo. Please let us know when you're ready to accept mail orders.

      BTW, did I see some PW engines for a DC-8 on your workbench, or was it a mirage?

      Lots of people asked me if I'll be doing also a short B737NG CFM hot section after the "standard" B737NG CFM engine. Masters of both long and short hot sections CFM56-7B and CFM56-7BE are already finished. Hopefully, I should be able to have them for sale at Telford in week. Here are a few pics...





      Cheers,
      Ivo

      Nice work Ivo. I never knew there was a long and short hot section. I learned something new today. But couldn't we just use the Revell parts? To my knowledge there was nothing wrong with those parts of the engine.

      Regarding the picture of your workbench, I am wondering what belly/wing root fairing I am seeing. What model needs a new one?

      Look at the back end of the exhaust cones. The smaller exhaust tube is moulded onto a solid 'wall' while it should be mounted inside the cone with the visible part pointing out, the cone should be hollow. It is fixable but this set makes things easier for sure! I wonder how it compares to Kurt's engines, they look beautiful as well.

      Good morning!

      I am nervously awaiting the release of the nose modifications for the A330/340 and A300/310. I have several projects waiting for these update parts.

      Unfortunately I cannot go to Telford. What other ways will I have to purchase these items as soon as possible?

      Anybody who is going to Telford and could purchase some sets for me and re-sell + ship them to me in Germany? Just a crazy idea on Sunday morning.

      Greetings Daniel

      Currently on the line:
      B747SP Air Namibia or Corsair (not yet decided)
      B777-200LR Air India
      B777-200 American One World
      ...and lots more...
