Boeing 747-400F TNT Project Runway 1/400 Diecast Metal by Dragon Wings
This is a die-cast metal model of a 747-400F from TNT. It is part of Project Runway series which includes a cardboard section of runway along with a special stand (apart from the normal black stand from Dragon Wings) that positions the model in a landing or take off position, making the visual effect quite dramatic (as can be seen from the photos). Also included is a little sheet of tiny stickers that can be placed on the runway for added detail.
The model's fuselage is made of die cast metal and the wings, tail and engine are plastic. The landing gear can be position as extended or it can be taken off and the doors put in place to give the appearance that the landing gear is retracted.
This particular livery for TNT is special because it has so many colors.
