Default All White 1/400 777-200LR/777F/777-200LRF

Hello,
I am interested in customize some 1/400 777-200LRs.
Therefore I would need to get some 777-200LR Blank or white models.
However, there are only limited choices of 777-200LRs on market, and mostly are not usable. (Delta's got blue Engines, TNT, China Southern Cargo, Thai Cargo...etc are not usable as they are too "colorful")
Any suggestions or anyway to get a blank white 777-200LRs? Thanks

Do you not want to just strip the paint off whatever you can find for cheap?

Well, I have done couple 1/400 customization.
But I always try to look for something that has simple or nearly all white livery like Air France or Malaysian Airlines (NC) as donor models.
That way it is easier as most of the colored part can be removed simply by applying nail polish remover or acetone.

You could probably take off and replace a white GE 90 and put it on the LR, if one's not properly glued on.

Take a AF B77W and a B772, swap the wings and you have a B77L and a B773..

Ok, it seems like you aren't familiar with the different variants of the B777 - let me explain this to you:

Boeing 777-200: First variant, no raked wingtips
Boeing 777-200ER: enhanced range, but wings like the 777-200
Boeing 777-200LR: raked wingtips
Boeing 777-200F: Basically a cargo -LR, raked wingtips

Boeing 777-300: Stretched 777-200, no raked wingtips
Boeing 777-300ER: raked wingtips

What i was saying is that you take a stadard 777-200 or -ER that have no raked wingtips, but the shorter -200 fuselage and put the wings with raked wingtips from a 777-300ER on it, you have a 777-200LR - short fuselage with raked wingtips. The rest - long fuselage, no raked wingtips will result in a 777-300, the streched variant without raked wingtips. I hope that this helps..

You could also convert a 777-200F into a 777-200LR by adding windows and doors.. Which 777-200LR do you want to make?

Oops~ didn't read the first reply correctly
Yeah, but I personally don't want to remove and change wings on a 1/400 scale model as often times, removing wings can result in chopped paint problem

Has anyone tried to use a Phoenix made Emirates' plane as a donor model?
Looks pretty close to what I have expected (Like an Air France plane)
Just worrying about the paint problem as some old Phoenix models have a protected paint which nail polish remover can't penetrate through

Which custom do you want to make out of it? Why not giving the job to someone who can do it - plus you don't have to worry about all those things and get a perfect result!

They are my personal designed "Virtual" airlines. Heehee
Here is an example of a special color one which I did on a DW 737-800
