1/144 Revell Lufthansa Boeing 747-8
Posted by BetaSingh on Tuesday, March 07, 2017 9:24 AM

I'm a new member, and this is my first properly big plane, and I was wondering if anyone has built it or owns it and whether they have any advice or tips on building this plane. All replies appreciated! Thank you!

Wecome to the forum, BetaSingh.  If you look back through the old posts I believe some address this kit.  Sorry, I have not built one yet.

Beta...welcome to the Finescale Forums!!!   I've learned so much from the good folks here - it's an incredible resource.  The amount of knowledge out there is simply astounding.  All you need to do is...ASK.  Remember....THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A STUPID QUESTION.  Seriously.

I'd do a Google search for a 1/144 Revell Lufthansa Boeing 747-8 build review.  Here's a few:

Just remember....if you have ANY questions...just ask.  There are TONS of people here who are willing to help.  Every day I go to work in Everett and see these beasts being built - in the biggest darned building you ever did see.  Imagine seeing THREE of these monsters almost nose to tail INSIDE A BUILDING....LMAO.  It always blows me away.

Mate....got a question?  Just ask.  All the cool people who hang out here are more than willing to help.

And....POST PICS!!!!  We'd LOVE to see your build!

Thank you so much for the kind words, I'lll try to post my builds, even though they probably won't be that good.

Beta - don't worry about that, mate.  Ain't nobody here to tear you down....only to help.

Remember - none of us started out building museum quality models right from the get-go.  Ask advice - and if you can, get yourself a subscription to the Finesclae Magazine - I've learned SO MUCH by reading their articles and trying out the tips and techniques in the mag....it really is one of the best model mags available.  And all the folks on the Fincescale Forums have an amazing depth of knowledge.  I've NEVER seen anyone "hide" their knowledge....I've only ever seen generous sharing.

And if you get stuck....ASK!  Like I said....there's no such thing as a stupid question.  Ever.

And remember...have fun!
