Engines on PIA B747-300

Post by samee380 »

Does the below engines match the PIA B747-300's? I am told these are Rolls Royce engines.
The small grey part of the engine does go 'inside' the engine cover as do the PIA's in reality.

Would like clarification.

Samee, those are Rolls Royce RB211-524G or RB211-524H with engine cowling for Boeing 747-400 like for example British Airways Boeing 747-400s. These should not be used for PIA Boeing 747-300 model.

PIA Boeing 747-300s are powered by older Rolls Royce RB211-524C2 that have different looking cowling.

Thanks Abbas for this. Though they do look close. As you say it is just that cowling

The upper one in this photo is very close although its pylon and to some extent cowling are not exactly like Rolls Royce RB211-524C2 of PIA Boeing 747-300.

Can be used if no other option available.

^ For perfection, pylon needs minor amendments in shape.

In following photo, see the point where pylon meets engine cowling behind intake, the distance between engine take and point where cowling meets pylon is smaller then shown in plastic model engine. In following photo also note pylon shape where it leaves engine exhaust pipe.
