747-200 (Flaps down - Hasegawa 1/200)

Recommended Posts

Hi, here's my second attempt at a 747 - on a real Hasegawa kit this time.  I'll be using AV-O's beautiful flap set.  I made the mistake of curving the wings on the Hobbycraft and couldn't figure out how the slats would conform to the curved leading edge so I had to shelve that project.  I'll also make sure to block out the windows on this build and use the decals.   

 

I haven't decided on a livery yet but here's the Hasegawa kit I got:

The Hobbycraft fuselage had surface undulations that needed correcting.   This Hasegawa fuselage looks awesome.

Hi Tracy, here are a couple pics...   It's been a while -- I'll have to orient myself with the parts again, do the cleanup and fix the broken rods.   I think I lost some parts   -- might have to do some scratchbuilding but having the set surely beats having to scratchbuild every single one of them.

Got an exploded view -- thanks, AV-O!

It can be dizzying to look at all the parts, figuring out assembly and making sense of it so this helps a lot in seeing the big picture.
