No pictures yet, but the A-6 intakes are done and will be ready by the end of the week.  Look for anew thread soon.   The test fitting today went perfectly.  They are made for the kit engines, but I will include a fan face with the set.  Notice ours have the correct interior unlike other being made.   !/48 version for those kits will be ready shortly.

 

Price will be $25.00 per set and they are drop in items with no modifications to the kit plastic.  Here are the pictures.

Separate fans would be great, anything to lighten the model. Your new website is awesome, my order, invoicing and payment with PayPal went great. Thanks.

Just an update.   I have had to make new molds as a change was required to get the mold to fill properly.   Will have a delay of a week or so in getting the new molds on line.    Hope to get pics up this weekend.

Many Thanks, Gary

HI,

 

The other set is missing the trunking that attached to the front of the engine that protrudes out into the intake.   Unlike most jets there is not a smooth transition form the intake to the engine front fan.   Take a look at the kit parts and you will see what I am talking about or any picture of the engine.   Ours keeps this trunking as in the real jet that trumps got right, they just have ugly seams to be filled and sanded.   We also thinned the splitter plate and cleaned up the fuel port detail.  

 

Hope this helps answer your question.

Ugly seams to be filled and sanded? Yuk!

HI,  Just an update.  I am waiting on rubber tube delivered for production molds and the intake fans.   It should be arriving by the end of the week.   Sorry for the delay as I hope to have pictures up very soon of the fan.

Update 10-5-17.

 

The rubber has arrived for making molds....finally and I received the fans form he printer today.   The fan is a major view item being so close to the intake opening.   It will actually be two parts.   the front will be the vanes and the Center hub, while the fans will be located behind the vanes.  Hope to have pics up this weekend and start shipping Wednesday  of next week.


Many Thanks, Gary
