So while the build of the Trent 1000 took me a few weeks sorting everything out as you know, the first variant built from it (not even a RR engine) has begun and been substantially quicker. There’s about an hour here and it’s falling into place very very quickly. The benefit of layers and masks and the setting up of the original engine with an eye to the future. About another hour and it should be 90% completed. A far cry from the time the original took. The time spent planning the first is paying of wonderfully and providing a very solid base to build from.
PPS Yes, the engine is a way lot smaller than the Trent 1000. I scaled that one down to work it for the new model.
PS In case any of you were wondering, and thinking, that looks different from what I remember. Yes I do update the image with the latest version. Save’s me reposting the same thing over and over again. I’ll just update it. Had a little more time spent. The rivets are wrong I know. They will be looked at. I’ve not yet worked from any reference photos. That’s my next step in addition to the pylon connecting the wing to the engine.
PPPS Work Continues. Been busy with other builds.
