Introducing our new J-79 exhaust fan/flame holder thetas being added to all of our Super Sets and individual engine sets.   No longer will you have to use the  existing kit parts to complete our exhaust sets.  IF you have already purchased sets either individually or as part of a Super Set,   we will supply these free of charge to you on your next order or as a special order if you pay for the shipping.  There is no price increase for adding this part to the engine sets.   Please mention you want these included and how many sets you need with your next order.

Gary,

 

Do you have any pics of how they long ones look once installed on the Tamy F-4J kit?  These look promising, but have been burned by Aires in the past...

 

Thanks,

 

JC

Hey JC,  Thanks for the question.   I will have to take some picture as I don’t have any of the Long nozzle installed in the Tamiya.  Here are some photos showing the short nozzle as compared to the Brassin exhaust.   I would guess you issue is with the diameter, and the aires being too small.  the Brassin is large but still a bit smaller than ours.   At least this will give you an ideas of the difference, as both our long and short nozzles are the same diameter and use the same burner tube.  I will still get some of the long ones and post as I am sure others may have this question as well.

Sorry to take so long,  But here are pictures of the Long Exhaust nozzle we produce.   Ours is in Gray.   The cream is a CE  and is the same undersized as Brassin,  Aries, and others I have tried over the years.  Hope this helps.

Here is the Revell set, with contrasting Afterburner tube colors.   Notice the flame holder details and the igniter on the bottom of the engine.

Gary,

I just got a set, but there is no indication of how much of the casting blocks to remove, any possibility of a modified photo of the part, with a cutting line?

I'm loathed to  start cutting, as it's none too clear

PhantomDriver,

 

       I just received GT's long J-79 set for my Revell kit and have severed the exhaust nozzle and burner cans from their respective casting blocks. As per Gary's instructions enclosed within, I used my razor (jewellers) saw to sever the burner can from the casting block by cutting right next to the casting block. I cut around the circumference by continually rotating slowly  - no problems - and then flat sanded the edge to clean it up a bit. I used my RB Productions micro saw blades (these go in my Excel blade handle) to sever the exhaust nozzle in the same manner as above. I opted for the micro saw blades as the nozzles are more delicate. Basically, if you go right along the casting blocks and take your time you'll be fine. I have not tried to fit them to the kit as a section of the flat underside of the Revell kit will have to be removed to accept the burner cans, and this hasn't been done yet. I hope this helps.

 

Cheers,

Tom

Hey Guys,

 

Tom, my thanks.  I could not have said it better myself.   IF you hold the saw tight to the casting block you are int he right place.  remember to take your time and not rush

 

Thanks again,  Gary


Many Thanks, Gary

Hi Gary,

I am about to order a set of your burner cans and exhausts for the Tamiya F-4J but can't see how you attach them to the fuselage given that they are not attached via the Tamiya attachment points.

Would you mind providing some info or diagrams about how your are fitted please?

 

cheers,

Peter

They are made to be installed at final assembly, and simply glue to the fuselage at the rear with CA.   Since they are the right diameter, this method works great with no alignment or masking issues to deal with.

 

Thanks for the question and have a great day,

 

Gary
