Question B777-300 vs B777-300ER

Hi.

I have a question regarding those 2 different types. Do the manufacturers really have 2 different models or are they using the same mould? Differences in engine types, wingtips, etc. Thank you for your answer.

Most likely uses the same fuselage mould but the wings/engines from 777-200. I have many 777-300ERs and one 777-300.

I believe that the Inflight 777-300 ER model use their own mould, for example the engines are smaller in size compared to Gemini/ JC Wings version.. but don't ask me which one is more accurate in size, as i'm not that technical..

According to Charlie Alpha the Inflight engines are the more accurate. IIRC he measured with great accuracy to determine which.

Thank you guys, but this thread was not about which 777 is the best (been answered recently). Just wanted to know if the moulds of 777-300 and 777-300ER differes. We have seen in the past the manufacturers using the same mould for 2 different versions of 737, if I am not mistaken.

The fuselage should be the same as in real life. only difference is wings and engines.

Very hard to find the -300 as they were mostly made for the Japanese market. They are for sale but due to limited number and most being exclusive market, they are in the hundreds of $usd

The engines and wings for the -300 and -300ER models are different. Inflight200, newer JC 1:200, and newer Gemini200 777-300ERs all have GE90-115B engines and raked wing tips.

At first, Gemini and JC were using the same engines for the -300 and -300ER, but they have since corrected this.

The cheapest most easy to find is the Thai 777-300 still in production and sale by gemini:

Tks guys.
The Thai is a beauty. Unfortunately it doesn't fit my collection criteria. Nor is the ANA. Only 777-300 I flew or worked with are AF, EK and CX. I found one nice with CX. The Spirit of Hong Kong. WIll try to find it here to see the differences by myself. Thanks again for the info.

I cant tell if the engines is the correct one. It should be the PW4000 and the RR Trent,not GE-90. can you tell at all?

To make the -300, JCW just used the old GE-90 engine mold, which is smaller than their current rendering of the GE-90-115 engine. They also removed the wing tips to simulate the wing of the -300.


JCW used the engine on the old -300 and on the -300ER also, so the only real difference in the old -300 and -300ER molds is the wing tips. Not sure if the gear is removable on the Thai model (I don't own one), but in general, models with the smaller first generation engine DO NOT have removable landing gear.

Here's my latest addition: JC wings 777-300 JAL. It's a beauty! But Scrapped! ;(

https://www.airfleets.net/ficheapp/plane-b777-28393.htm

it's supposed to have PW4090 engines: .

I can't tell if it's PW or Trent 800 or the smaller GE90. But the engine is def smaller than the GE90-115 on the Hogan 777-200LR

That is a PW4000 engine. Overall a good shape with the hot zone having the two indents. The only thing is the pylon is not correct. Looks like a GE pylon, not the stubbier PW version.
