Howdy Nick!

I know this one! I tackled it once for my bro. It's really next level when you compare it to the Revell airliners from 20 years ago.

This is how mine turned out:

WIP on it is also here on the forums, if you want to see it...

What livery do you plan for your machine?

Good luck with your build and have a nice day

Wow she is a big bird.  Longer than the A380-800 I just finished.  I love these big airliners but man the chew up shelf space!  Following this build - I have the zvezda 747-8 in the stash so looking forward to how a zvezda liner goes together.

Great job on yours Pawel.

Thanks,

John

Hello!

Lookin' good! Did you get the fan to spin when you blow into the intake? I checked, it can be done in this one!

Good luck with your build and have a nice day

Thanks,

Well, those are pretty substantial engines - you can fit a gurl in there with a considerable margin!

Hi Pawel!

    I am sorry, I just have to chime in here! Just what scale is this Bird? I would probably do mine in a Semi-Fictitous Fed-Ex livery.

Woah! You chose to built my favorite airliner. I love planes, but it's mostly the commercial airliners that I love. Nice of you to choose the 777. Such a large plane, and I've only flew on it once on a 16 hour trip. I can tell that you're going to love it, with the fact that there are many aftermarket decals for many different airlines. It's such a joy to have customization to the plane. I hope you will enjoy it.

Why do I keep changing my signature??

Fun fact, the GE9X is the world's largest turbofan engine. It's supposed to be fitted in the 777X, and it's larger than the width of a Boeing 737 Fuselage. Crazy.

Why do I keep changing my signature??

Hello!

The engines are lookin' good! Is this a dry fit or are you permanently attaching the engines to the wing?

Good luck with your build and have a nice day
