"Not bad, but looks toyish..."
jclemente1980 (Coimbra, Portugal)
Revel tried to make it with a lot of details, to make it accurate... however, the depthness of the detail lines, the look, the feel, keeps looking like toyish. Its not a bad kit, even if it is tricky to install the belly plate, and the landing gear its ok for the scale, but... I think that even if you don't do anything else, if you do fill all the recessed pannel lines, it would look a killer.

Features

Highly detailed 1/144th scale plastic kit for static display 155 parts in white and clear with fine recessed panel lines GE CF6-80 engine pods with detailed fan fronts and exhaust nozzles Detailed wheel wells and landing gear Clear windshield and wingroot landing lights - NOTE: the passenger cabin windows are punched out of the fuselage leaving a hole for each window. But, no clear parts are included for these windows! There are therefore three options for dealing with the windows when assembling the kit: 1/ leave them as is - not very realistic; 2/ fill in the windows with putty and use aftermarket window decals; 3/ use a liquid window material such as Micro Krystal Kleer which forms a thin clear film in the window opening. There is no interior cabin or cockpit detail.

"Great kit."
mayhewdylan (Columbus, OH)
Building this giant was fun. I painted it exactly as it appears on the box. You get what you pay for with this kit. Be sure to be carefully glue the fuselage halves together. If any glue leaks out it can damage the front of the aircraft by wrinkling it from the inside out, ruining the panel detail. This is due to the thickness of the front fuselage The only real issue I had with this kit is the landing gear. Unless you put ballast in the front of the model to balance it, expect the landing to break like a twig if the kit tilts backwards. If you want to build a 747 without hurting your wallet or want a kit that gives you long but fun building experience, then this is the kit for you.

"Old model, disappointing quality, needs skill"
ahsing (SF Bay Area, CA)
Of the 1/144 scale Boeing 747's available, this is one of the older models, and it shows. Poor quality, lots of flashings to trim, parts don't fit well, etc etc. Takes every skill, patience, putty, sanding ....... to make it look good. The main joint: wings to fuselage, is poorly designed, requiring shimming for the joint to be solid. As a result, my main wing uptilt angle ended up a bit off (see photos attached). Decals are the only parts of high quality. Revell's own and Zvevda's 1/144 B747-8, the newer models, are so much more superior, their plastic moldings are simply sharper, nothing to trim, practically snaps into place. However, the 747-400 is still the more classic looking, more common 747, with the familiar wingtip winglets (no winglets in the 747-8 stretched version). Still a handsome plane with the distinctive upper hump. The timeless and elegant Lufthansa color scheme is quite handsome.
