Zvezda's recent (post 2013) models, like their 787 Dreamliner, & 747-8, are high quality precision models, a pleasure to build. It still needs skill, not for beginners. After market decals are widely available, so you have an abundance of airlines to choose for you final product. For some reason (licensing?) all Zvezda planes come in grey. Most planes, almost all airlines, are predominantly white. Even if you stay with the basic 777 version of this kit, you still have to paint the whole plane white. So you pretty much have to paint white on grey, which is harder than grey on white. The Zvezda grey is darker than the standard Boeing grey used on many airlines, so leads to more work if you want to be truly authentic. All Zvezda's planes come a a stand, allowing a flying option, looks nicer than the landing gear option.
