Hasegawa Boeing 777ER

Recommended Posts

A short while ago, Aeroscale received Hasegawa's new 777-300ER for review. Once I finished the review, it was time to build. Since the kit offers window decals (and since ANA's window pattern does not match the window holes), I needed to fill the windows. Cue rolling up ropes of Milliput

Press it into the windows from behind

Et voila! Filled windows

At 1/200 scale the build goes fairly rapidly and shortly I had the fuselage halves together

A little sanding, building and painting later...

Then the basic gloss white and "Boeing Grey" went on

Testors Steel from the little square bottle was used for the Corrogard inspar areas. I couldn't resist a test fit of the engines and stabilisers

A ton of masking was needed before I could paint the Alclad on the leading edges

Then finally I could begin decalling

Finished; just needing a few touch-ups

As the decals dried, they pulled away from the base of the fin, so I will need to mix up some custom blues to cover the white
