1:200 Scale  Plastic Snap-Fit – Boeing 747-400 – Length:13.75"  Wingspan: 13"

 

These models from Flight Miniatures are made of plastic and don't need any glue or paints. The assembly is very basic and takes only a few minutes. Assembly consists of nothing more than attaching the wings to the fuselage and then attaching the tail and elevators. Special care has to be taken while attaching the wings since the fitting in these models is quite tight and some pressure needs to be applied. The pressure needs to be applied on the wings and onto the fuselage. Do not, for example, hold the wings from the engines and apply force like that since this will damage and/or break the engine.

 

The level of detail is very nice and accurate. Wings will show the different panels and sections just as the real thing. The coloring and markings are not decals, so they won't peel off. For the people who are really observant, engines are accurately proportioned and the type of engine is also accurately represented. These type of models are the type which one can see in airline offices and/or at travel agents (when they were still around).

 

These are not toys, they are not intended to be played with since they are very fragile. However, the constructions is so simply and because they have no moving parts, that casual "flying" (and making noises) will be fine, even if done by a child.

 

The box measures 14 inches long by 3.5 inches high by 1.75 deep

 

Please note that this is a collector model and is not recommended for children under 8.

Historical Livery Series

Lufthansa was the first non-American airline to order and take delivery of the Boeing 747-100. It became the first non-American airline to fly the Boeing 747, entering it into service on the Frankfurt–New York route in April 1970.

This model represents ship D-ABYA "Nordrheim-Westfalen" in its original delivery colors (this livery was used by Lufthansa from 1967 to 1988). It was the first 747-100 delivered to Lufthansa and the twelfth built by Boeing. It had its first flight on February 18, 1970, and was delivered to Lufthansa March 10, 1970. In 1978 Lufthansa sold this aircraft to ITEL Corporation.

The 747-100 had its first flight on February 9, 1969, and entered commercial service in 1970. Boeing delivered 250 of the 747-100s, the last in 1986. Boeing built two versions of the 747-100 passenger airplane, one of which had a higher payload capacity and was known as the -100B. The 747-100 was also available as a short-range (SR) airplane, which had a modified body structure to accommodate a greater number of takeoffs and landings. The 747SR model typically was used by airlines on short flights with a high-passenger capacity, as many as 550.
