I recently posted a video and some pictures of the nose landing gear I made for my model 777-300ER project… many of you seemed curious about my progress and so I'd like to share a few more things! Some of you may have discovered the video on my youtube channel that shows the thrust reversers in action, but I wanted to post some pictures of the engines in their completed form as well. I finished these last year between January and May (each took about two months to build, but I was by no means working on them continuously). Each is made of ~900 pieces of paper. Currently they're sitting around awaiting the completion of the rest of the model.

Please click to enlarge!

Love the shape of the -115B's fanblades!

I actually made the fanblades back in 2008… which explains the low quality of the photo.

All done!

I don't know what more I can say, but I'm totally speechless. I've been following your posts with interest. Your dedication to this project is highly commendable. I can't wait to see the complete model!

Well done!

Thank you both!!

The body is nearing completion, and once it's done I'll be applying the livery in clear gloss (for a very subtle effect). I'll hopefully have a video of that posted in a month or two!

Just commented on your landing gear post and then came across this. Those engines are incredible. The detail, accuracy, and the fact it's made from manila folder -- unbelievable.
