Hi (experienced) modellers,

since Braz-models announced not to go ahead with producing a modification kit for the A340-500, I will make one myself.

If you have two A330-300 kits + one A330-200 tail fin from braz, you can follow me doing so!
we will use parts from the flap stabilizers of the second A330 kit to produce the engine struts.

I figured out that the CF-6 engines delivered with the kit are practically the same dimensions as the Trent 500.
The Revell CF-6 is not correctly modelled, but the resemblance with the Trent is amazing, only some adjustments make it a real trent.

The wing design will be more tricky, but I think it's possible.

The body gear is simple, just take one main gear from the second A330 kit,
in reality too; they are the same struts.

one frame from the second A330 kit will still need to be placed on the back of the hull.

It's also possible to make an A340-600 out of it,
then you need more frames from the second kit.

Any comments are highly welcome!

Hi Karel,

sounds amazing. I don't think I could undertake anything like that myself. I agree that the wing/wingbox part will be the hardest. I'm very sad that Braz doesn't go ahead with those models. I really want to build an LH and an EK A346, but that will be very difficult now.

Anyway, I wish you good luck with that project. Post some pictures.

Edit: The thing with those engines didn't leave me alone. I looked it up, they really look very similar. The Trent is a little smaller than the CF6.

The CF6 is 4,26m long, the Trent 3,93m.
Diameter of the CF6 is 2,89m, for the Trent 2,47m.

Those are really tiny differences, maybe the engine needs to be shortened just a lil' bit.

Tail issues should be resolved with the A332 tail.

Landing gear is quiet a challenge. The kit has the A343 main landing gear in it. Basically you would have to fit one of the side landing gear main parts (part 72 or 73) into the gear box (14) and make the whole in the closed claps (20) a little bigger, so that it fits.

The A345 wingspan is about 3m more than the A333. Means 1,5m per wing, which is basically 1cm in 1/144.

You can look at
http://www.airbus.com/en/aircraftfamilies/productcompare/
to compare the dimensions. However, that doesn't tell which part of the wing has been stretched.

Really a lot of challenges. Decals will be another challenge, I suppose.

Hi Thorben!

Speaking of the decals,
we could use the Emirates one with the Gulf Air ones!
BTW, I still need to send them with the tail, I think I have another tail available should you be intersted to make a 345 or 346 with me.
would be cool though!

Maybe you can make a 346 and ask F-DCAL for custom decals, or use the Revell LH ones.
Maybe asking for a Thai decal at F-DCAL?

And...
in the Revell kit, they are practically identicall to the the Trents, only the shape of the undarpart and the thrust reverse slide is bigger, maybe only one mm of diffrence on width and lenght.
Also the exhaust does the trick on the lenght, making them shorter into the thrust cone will already MAKE IT a Trent!

I still need to investigate that one, but even if we break down the main gear and build it on the mechanism of the 343 gear, it can be done since they are already in different pieces.



The wing will be very hard to do,
the chord is different, as well as the wide and lenght...
and i have a strong feeling the wing bay is larger on A345 A346.

I' am still going for it though!
I have a very nice B767-400ER in advanced stadium, so...
It would only be a big dumper if Revell announced an A346 kit somewhere later this year when i' am in an advanced stadium!!

Maybe we can adjust this by making the winglet assembly farther from the wing end and reshape it?
That would be the easiest way for a 345-6 look, they also hang lower on the 345-346, I have seen that myself on the A.NET ZRH meet saturday when a SAA A342 and Thai A346 standed next to eachother.

Hi Karel,

concerning the decals, the sheet is still not here, we'll talk about that via e-mail.

EK decals are not really a problem. The A332 tail decals should just be perfect for the A345/6. Fuselage writing "Emirates" can be done with the A332 fuselage decal. Engine decals might be a problem, since the kit has them for two engines and we need them for four. Either take them from two decal sheets or use an Revell EK A388 decal sheet, those might be a little bigger, but not too much. The rest should be no problem, except the writing "Airbus A340-500" which is below the cockpit windows. Oh, I forgot, the underbelly decal. How are we going to do that?

LH is even easier. The only difference to the A343 is the tail emblem, that of the A343 could be used, but I also have the Brazil decals for the A332 of LH, those would be perfect. Remains the "A340-600" writing. Maybe I can get my hands on an A306 decal sheet, combine the "A340" from the A343 sheet with the "-600" of the A306 sheet.

Thai? I still have the A306 sheet from the Bras. A333 and A306 sheet in old livery. But there the color is more a purple, the new livery has more blue in it. And the writing "Thai" on the fuselage is different. Depends on how precise the thing has to be. The paintjob on the tail half could be done without decals, although it would be a lot of work.

What I also thought about was Qatar Airways. I wanted to combine the tail and fuselage markings of the Bras. A332 (the one with Sri Lankan and Air Tahiti on it) with the engine markings of the A380 sheet (the one with SQ A380 on it). I don't have the A332 sheet, but I think Liveries Unlimited released a QR A330 sheet.

I'm still not sure what to do with the wings. I compared a lot of pictures, but I can't really see a difference, except that the A345 engines appear to be closer to the fuselage. We could do several things to find out what to do:

-Email Airbus and ask them what they did.
-Buy some 1:500 models and compare.
-Ask Braz models what they did. (Maybe we could ask them if they still send us some kits, even if they are very expensive. Might be a good solution.)

Anyway, I think I'll try the LH A346. If that works out I can think about EK or QR, or even TG. Right now I'm busy with the university, I'll have to see when I can start.

Let me know what you think.

I don't know, maybe we should ask them, too.

Edit: I just looked at their homepage. You can wish yourself a model that they bring out. How about we wish the A346, so that it can be cut to be an A345, should be easier than bring an A345 model to the A346 length. What about the decals? Emirates? Etihad? South African? Thai?

Karel, one other thing. EK 345, TG 346, CO 764 Swissair MD-11.... Are you building the ZRH airport?

I will do that ASAP!

I also figured some things out on making the wing bigger!
it's actually not that hard, altough you need to be a little bit skilled with a dremel, making supports and putty!
The wing will be cut open lenghtwise and the triangular shape design for the A345/6 wing placed in the center, and filled up with putty.
Via this way we will get the span and short just as the real wing!
I already asked the guys here at the tech forum for help about dimensions and it has already proven fruitfull!

OK, but I think all A346s will have it on. I might try it nevertheless. I just don't know what to do with the kit afterwards, because all A380s I want to build have the RR engines. Except Korean Air, I'd like to build that one, but I don't have the decals. Maybe if I can print them, that would work....

Concerning the wings, I figured putty would be needed. I'm not very experienced with that, but I think I'll learn it.

Hi guys!
Glad you like the project Starlionblue!

A little update after the (quite challenging) work on the wings!

It's really looking like an opened up body or something right now, with putty( some sort of plamur/filler) all over the place...
but the angle/lenght is "finally" correct!

I cutted open the wings right after assembly with a very fine saw on the dremel unit.

Doing some research in Airbus manuals I came to the conclusion that the larger aft section is placed just the same as the A343 wing.
So I did that without problems on the mid section.
Oh yes, I also cutted the mid section from after the nr3 door till the front cargo door directly on a seam, later on I will place the correct nose and tail section, I do this also to have some commonality when building A346.
so this section will be identicall for A345/A346.
I did'nt assemble the MID section so I could easely work on each wing seperatly.

The front section of the wing is the tricky part!
angle the root section to have a 90° fit on the fuselages wingbox.
You need to place it in the correct angle on the root at the fuselage and that will give you aproximatly 4mm distance on the root and 2mm at the tip.(without the wingtip assembly!)

Now tape it off at the upper part of the wing with 3M scotch tape, make 3 layers.
start filling via the open underside with putty( I use Revell's Plasto, less agressive!), make sure you use quite some plasto.
after that I started strengthening the part with toothpricks; paste them into the plasto and press them tightly towards the upper part of the wing.

That's where I left off after almost 2 hours of work.

Now we will need to wait until it has dried, then fill the bottom part, reinforce it again, drie it(24 hrs), then remove the upper wing tape and start fine sanding and filling.
I will also need to reshape the wingroot a bit because it is out of it's place now,in reality too the wing root area is comletely different on the front, I' am 100% sure the shape is looking like it should be.

I will post a picture tommorow of the operation, I' am still experimenting with the fillers and putty right now, so in fact we are still at an experimental phase. I hope the Plasto will be strong enough, and not to aggresive on the PVC that it will bend...
Let's cross some fingers!
I have a lot of spare wings, but still!

Quoting Thorben (Reply 9):
So you have a special software? I have an inkjet, with the right decal paper I could maybe print my own decals. That would rule.

Just the decal papers and the sealer, make sure you order decal papers for ink-jet printers and see if you can find a decent sealer!
I use some sort of "span-lack" of graupner, actually for flying models to protect the overtape from heat and gas, it does'nt contain any solvents, so 100% inkjet decalproof, it makes them completely watertight!

the software delivered with it is really stupid...for "amateur" models!
I don't use it!

All this talking about the kits made me work on my A343s and A333s the last couple of days. I think it won't be to long until the first ones are completed.

take two of the wing design!
This time no mistakes and even a much better dimension overall.
I used two wings and installed the slat area in front of the original A343 wing.
This will decrease the amount of Plasto drastically and gives an overall increase in strenght.
I have taken manuals from Airbus this time to compare the wings,
and the first calculation work is almost good, but it had still much to less chord.
So with the second (and absolutely definite!) attempt the dimensions are 100% correct.

OK,
this time less talking!
here is a pic! Enjoy it!
It looks much more like a wing with this design, still a lot of work!

I think I understand it with the picture. You sawed off the front of the wing and put in some mm of putty in between the two parts, right?

How are you going to make the wing broader?

Hi Thorben!

Indeed, you flatten the two parts out with some putty!
I also installed the wingtip with the first attempt wing design.
This is a slight advantage, because normally we would use a scratchbuild item to do that.I will make the exact dimensions of that for you, just a simple piece of plastic can be fit in then and filled with putty.
I must do the same with this spare tip.

Ok, here are some shots!

Well,
when I looked closely at pic nr.4 I noticed that the angle of the tip is not 100% correct, the curve was not ok, so I quickly pulled it off and re-angled the tip in a correct angle.It's ok now.
And you never believe it but it's exactly 31.6 degrees!
What a real manual of Airbus can do!(off course it does!  Wink )

So part 1 and probably the hardest one is done, now only some fine tuning that includes putty and sanding.
The wing itself should fit nicely on the fuselage just with a simple adjusment of the root at the fuselage, we will only need to reshape it a bit.
Now I have a slight problem,
I' am out of -300 hulls, so I need to get to my local store and get out more A330 kits I put aside there! So a slight delay with that...

There is something else I noticed when I looked at the scaled drawings of the Airbus manuals,
namely the tailplane is bigger on -500-600...
comparing the tailplanes from the root out you get a completely different angle and chord that freaked me out thinking I must do the same procedures on them!
But when you place them exactly from the tip out you get the exact same dimension, only you need to place a plug at the root to make it larger...
So we will use the tailfins from the original kits to make a tailplane root out of it!

So stay tuned on that part!
