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.

Love the shape of the -115B's fanblades!
I actually made the fanblades back in 2008… which explains the low quality of the photo.
