Michael, Don, your engines look awesome! With three of my current and upcoming build subjects powered by Merlins, I saved your work for reference. Thanks for posting!

 

Cheers,  Tom

Thanks Tom,

I added the extras to the engine based on drawings for the Merlin. The great thing about the Tamiya kit is I sized all the extra parts from the drawings and they fit the kit parts like a glove - well done Tamiya-san.

 

Let me know if you need any details and I will try and dig out my archives.

I've got a few

 

Tamiya Spitfire Mk IX

Tamiya P-51D

And assuming jet engines are OK,  Trumpeter A-10C with Sierra Hotel resin engines in heavily modified shrouds

Kitty Hawk F-5E.  All of the raised rivets are Archer decal rivets

Tamiya F-4E.  Lots of Eduard PE glued onto resin nozzles.  They make much better ones now.

And probably my best engine nozzles ever on the Tamiya F-15C.  330 tiny photo-etch and kit parts glued onto kit and Two Mikes nozzles.  Now that the fantastic ResKit versions are available, this is probably a waste of time.
