  1. Just to give a quick update, I have created the inboard flaps using solidworks based on proportions from the real aircraft and the dimensions based on the hasegawa kit (which has a few inaccuracies concerning the wings). This includes each of the 3 elements with accurate location for the flap tracks, which I have also created in take off and full flap down configurations. The next step is to create the outboard and leading edge flaps. Unfortunately work has meant I've had to pause this small project for the while. I'll try posting a few pictures later on if I can. I also I must add that the r
  2. Please tell me you're going to do area 88 markings!!!
  3. Brad is indeed the master. His work was the original inspiration for me to drop some flaps I have several photos showing each position, so I can roughly gauge the position. My plan was to get some accurate dimensions in order to CAD and eventually 3d print not only the flaps but also the flap tracks, just so I didn't have to scratch build them each time. I have a few plans of the wings which I'll measure up against the Hasegawa kit and come up with something suitable (which I should've done but tried to take the lazy route). I was only a toddler in the mid '90's but I'm sure I would have
  4. Yeah I had a feeling it would be a long shot, thank you anyway. I have a few plans and will try work it out through ratios.....hopefully.
  5. Hi guys, I'm building hasegawa's 747 and want to have the flaps and slats down. I'm struggling to find any information on the actual size of the trailing flaps so I've attached pictures of the dimensions that I require. Apologies for the amateurish drawings. Any help would be appreciated In-board mid and aft flaps: Out-board mid and aft flaps:
  6. Amazing result. You don't happen to have a build log or a weathering tutorial do you??
  7. thanks you all for the replies, I'll probably go for the hasegawa kit. Has anyone tried the 1/125 heller kits of any airliner. Are they any good.
  8. Hi, i was wondering who produces the best boeing 747-300/400 kit in any scale, I have seen quite a few options in 1/144, 1/200 and 1/300 scale but i don't know which is most accurate. Thanks for the help.
