Building and Lighting 1/200 747-400 Virgin Atlantic

Recommended Posts

Greetings all.

Going to attempt something out of the ordinary for me - Ive been doing so much military stuff I just fancied a change. I decided I want to do a Virgin Atlantic 747-400, in the 2010 livery - I rode "Mustang Sally" I believe when my wife and I went on honeymoon to Orlando, so thought that would be a great model to do!

I dont know ANYTHING about civil stuff so this is going to be a fun build for me, Im not going for accuracy just something that will look nice on the shelf ;)

So here goes, popped off to TAHS the other weekend and pick up one of these:


1/144 Seemed a bit big for my gaff so I went for the 1/200.

Kit seems nice, bummer about the raised panels, so they are coming off.

Im going to build a lighting circuit for this also - would be cool to have it in flight and blinking away - any of you guys have some good references as to the light sequences and positions on a 747?

more soon!

can't help with the lighting part but as far as accuracy goes, Hasagawa's kit is better than most so you have a good starting point. There might be some fit issues around the wing root and if your doing it 'in-flight' then you wont have to worry about the gear, which is a bit simplified.

Apart from that, it's a good kit.
