Revell 1/72 Scale Airbus a-400 Atlas...anyone built it?


Recommended Posts

I found a Gallery-entry here:

And a WIP of a german modeller who built the kit-prototype. Apparently the gear is a bit sensitive, and he recommends to build the gear as last item.

I built one back in 2018 and I enhanced it with a few little bits and pieces.

 

Build thread is over on BritModeller and display thread here

 

Construction went pretty well, the only big issue I had was getting the fuselage together, it needed a lot of tape to hold it all together when gluing the fuselage around the cockpit/cargo bay cylinder. I did add some lighting (which may have affected the fit) to it and modified position of flight controls.

 

The other thing I will add after transporting to and from model shows is the the axles are flimsy and should be replaced with brass rod. I will do that on my next wheels down build (I have another two kits).
