The Dragon Wings model of the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy measures about 7.5 inches in lengths and has a wing span of about 6.75 inches. Unlike other Dragon Wings 1/400 models the wings are metal. The box is (huge at) 8.25 inches on lengths and widths and 3 inches in height.
The box includes a stand made of plastic and metal. There are also panels to cover the wheel wells and give the model the appearance of flight. The stand can not be attached to the model if the wheels want to be displayed. In other words, the model when displayed with the landing gear extended cannot be attached to the stand.
The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy is a large military transport aircraft originally designed and built byLockheed, and now maintained and upgraded by its successor, Lockheed Martin. It provides the United States Air Force (USAF) with a heavy intercontinental-range strategic airlift capability, one that can carry outsize and oversize cargos, including all air-certifiable cargo. The Galaxy has many similarities to its smaller Lockheed C-141 Starlifter predecessor, and the later Boeing C-17 Globemaster III. The C-5 is among the largest military aircraft in the world.
The C-5 Galaxy had a complicated development; significant cost overruns were experienced and Lockheed suffered significant financial difficulties. Shortly after entering service, fractures in the wings of many aircraft were discovered and the C-5 fleet were restricted in capability until corrective work was performed. The C-5M Super Galaxy is an upgraded version with new engines and modernized avionics designed to extend its service life beyond 2040.
