Korean Air 🇰🇷 Boeing 777-FB5 in 1/144


Recommended Posts

Here is my finished Boeing 777-FB5 in 1/144 scale which has been converted from the Revell B777-300ER kit. Presented in the attractive Korean Air livery sporting registration HL8251.

 

This is the 2nd time I have done this conversion, having previously built my British Airways B777-236(ER). It’s a lovely little conversion and the added bonus is that the freighter version of the B777 uses the same engines and extended wing tips as the B777-300(ER). I did do a WIP post before on how to do this conversion when I built my BA B777. The decals are from Draw Decal and the wing markings are from RichW.

 

Paints used were Ford Riveria Blue from Halfords which I found was a good match for the light blue of Korean Air. Halfords Appliance White for the lower fuselage & nacelles and racking grey for the wings and stabilisers. The ‘silver’ stripe through the fuselage was my own mix of Revell Aqua colours 371 and 90. I opted to paint the silver line first and then mask off the areas for the light blue and white sections. The metals are from Revell’s Aqua range. 

 

I enjoyed this build as it made a nice change from the Airliner’s I usually build as it’s the first time I’ve built a freighter model. I am currently working on the new Zvezda B757 kit and a B787-8. Thank you for looking and as always all comments and feedback are greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Alistair

Now that's a great build. Construction and paint work are wonderful. I'm anxious to hear about your impression of the Zvezda 757 also.

That looks really smart. I'm guessing this was a decal & paint conversion, windows & doors other rather than a physical one, either way it looks very effective.

Thank you Steve! No this was a full cut up job to shorten the fuselage. It’s the 2nd time I’ve done it now 😃

Oops, I missed that in the opening post, just saw 300ER & went from there, of course I can see it now, I've one to convert as an AirNZ -200, its my desk top photo.

Superb 777.

Paintwork and weathering are first rate.

 

I was playing with the same idea as Korean Air was a frequent visitor for many years at our local airport.

 

Thanks for sharing

Alex
