Very interesting. The SP kits are hideously expensive, so that's a great tutorial 👍

Jorge Justino Fernandes
Thanks Łukasz Gliński, the prices of the 747SP kits are way too expensive that is one of the reasons why I am starting to convert an old Revell kit.

Could you elabprate a bit more on how you blended the fuselage and what changes are needed for wings, engines etc.? I'm willing to learn more 🙂

Jorge Justino Fernandes
Hi, I add comments below the pictures to explain how I transform this kit,
The fuselage, once cut to be fitted, is glued I afterwards add pieces of plastic card to give the very particular shape of the SP
The rudder has been extended once the elevators with plastic card,
The engines are different especially the nacelle which holds the turbo it is necessary to modify them.

great looking conversion. It sure looks strange such a shortened 747...
7. May, 12:55
Jorge Justino Fernandes
Thanks Bart Goesaert, Yes when shortened it looks like a cartoon airplane.

Nathan Dempsey
Your engine nacelles look great.

Jorge Justino Fernandes
Thank you very much Nathan Dempsey for your compliment, it's nice,
A lot of time it took to improve this good old JT9D Pratt & Whitney.

Fantastic work so far - I am especially impressed with your reconstruction of the engine pods and the dorsal "hump" just in front of the vertical stabiliser (frankly, I have not noticed it before your built... but there it is🙂
18. May, 17:14
Jorge Justino Fernandes
Thanks Robert, Yes a lot of work it took to improve the Revell engines which were at my best quality,
I hope to be able to finish this B747SP despite the difficulties encountered,
There is still a lot of work to do, for example the landing gear and the decals,
18. May, 18:49

Belo trabalho 👍
Este traz-me uma bela memória, da primeira tempestade nocturna vista de cima, quando vim de Moçambique com 8 anos sozinho, entregue às belas e simpáticas hospedeiras da TAP e muitas horas sem dormir, só a apreciar (a razão da viagem é que não foi a melhor, mas isso é outra história).
Aguardando os gigantes reactores e finalização.
4. July, 15:19
Jorge Justino Fernandes
Muito obrigado Rui ?
A linha Lisboa Moçambique no 747 um destino regular na altura, obrigado pela paratégua da vossa viagem ??
4. July, 18:11
Rui S
Julgo que foi dos primeiros voos que os 747 fizeram entre LOURENÇO MARQUES E LISBOA EM BOEING 747, JUNHO DE 1973, antes era o 707 a fazer o serviço, outro belo avião.
4. July, 19:51
David Taylor
Looking better and better.
5. July, 14:13
Jorge Justino Fernandes
Sim confirmo Rui avião muito bonito o 707?
Thanks David ?

Thank you very much my friend ??

Treehugger
Very nice. 🙂 Initially I wasn't sure what to think, as I've never looked that much at a 747, and assumed wrongly that the bumpy shape behind the wings on the fuselage was wrong. 🙂
4. August, 18:19
Jorge Justino Fernandes
Thank you Treehugger Yes very good remark it took a lot of work to get the fuselage hump correctly adjusted with the wings,
They are not one hundred percent perfect, I would have liked to improve my skills with Scratch,
I hope with my next model to do better ??
4. August, 18:53
Bart Goesaert
Splendid result... and very nice conversion
6. August, 10:58
