It's part of my shift to 1/72 armor and 1/144 aircraft.

Modern militart equipment does tend to be bigger that its WW2 equvalant, just compare fighters. Thing with modern armour is that despite the size increase, the weights have not gone up that much.

Acquired this one a couple of Saturdays ago from the HobbyTownUSA in Asheville, NC, while I was working there over that weekend at one of my hospitals.....

 

 

Luckily, the decals will allow me to paint it an overall gloss white, with minimal masking probably on the tops of the wings. I was kinda apprehensive about buying it (mainly because of the premium mark-up for being a "limited edition" kit), figuring that I'd be doing a lot of masking for some of the paint scheme, but I was very relieved when I bought it anyway and opened the box....

It's got a 2014 copyright date, so it's a relatively new mold/mould (I guess it has to be, as the 787-8 ain't that old anyways....). Not sure when it's gonna get on the bench, but, with no interior, it might be one of those weekend builds in the next few months.
