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 Fun Model for the Price"
Nahalem13@gmail.com (St. Petersburg, FL)
This was the first model I did after a long hiatus. The 747-400 is a beautiful plane and this model does not disappoint. The pieces are all molded well and the fit is good though not perfect. There are some areas that need a good sanding to make them flush, and the engines are not as detailed as I would like. It can be tricky to get the landing gear attached properly, and they can be very fragile. Also don't forget to add a heavy weight to the nose or your finished model with be perpetually in a state of over-rotation. The windows are simply cutout of the fuselage and there are no clear inserts or decals to cover them. My other small gripe is that the engines mount on the surface of the wings with only two tiny bumps to align them (as opposed to a slight cutout that other models use and makes for a more secure mounting). The decals provided are very extensive and really make this model shine; though applying around 50 TINY No Step decals on the wings can be laborious. Aside from my nitpicking this is a great model that shines as the Queen of the Skies!

"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.

Information

When the first flight of the Boeing 747 occurred in 1969 the aircraft was the heaviest, most powerful, and had the largest passenger carrying capability of any civil airliner ever built. The 747 was the first "widebody" airliner and, consequently, the first of the "Jumbo Jets." Today, even after the introduction of many new large passenger aircraft, the 747 maintains it's status as having the largest passenger and cargo carrying capacity. The latest version of the 747, which this 1/144th scale Revell-Germany kit represents is the 747-400in which is distinguished from earlier models by the wintip winglets, extended upper deck, and larger engine nacelles each housing a General Electric CF6-80 high-bypass ration turbofan engine of 60,000lbs thrust. This kit of the 747-400 contains markings for Lufthansa.
