1:200 Scale Plastic Snap-Fit – Airbus A349-600 Lufthansa – Length:14.5" Wingspan: 13"
This Hogan A340-600 has great details, from the wing panels to the color and markings on the fuselage and engines. All is where it is supposed to be. The fuselage feels dense (heavy) than other brand models of the same scale and size.
This model version in an INFLIGHT VERSION, so it doe NOT include a landing gear. However, the wheel well covers can be removed and a lading gear set can be purchase separately and installed.
Other than the landing gear, the difference between and Inflight model and an On Ground model is that the wings show a slight upward flex.
The model does includes as display stand.
All in all the Hogan line of models is very high quality, the materials and details are very impressive.
The packaging is also top quality. All the parts have their own space in several plastic shells that are stacked on top or inside one another and are fitted into the box.
If you got little kids that like to take your models for a spin (even a gentle one), better save yourself some frustration and wait till they are old enough to follow directions before getting one of this.
Please note that this is a collector model and is not recommended for children under 14.

It provides similar passenger capacity to a 747 but with 25 percent more cargo volume, and at lower trip and seat costs. First flight of the A340-600 was made on 23 April 2001. Virgin Atlantic began commercial services in August 2002. The most direct Boeing equivalent to the A340-600 is the 777-300ER. The A340-600 will eventually be replaced by the A350-1000. In July 2015, seven airlines worldwide operated A340-600s.
