Default The FIRST? 777-9x work in progress 1/200

Probably the first 1/200 779 out there...

I know that some dimensions of the 9x is not public yet, so I'm doing my best with information gathered online. The chevron on the engine exhaust, the fuselage extension, the wingtip and other details are made from scratch and may not represent the real thing. So for rivet-counters, it's time to press ctrl+w.

If you do stick around...It's for sale! I haven't decide the livery for it, so it's entirely up to the buyer. Reply here or send me an offer to [email protected] if you're interested.

Thank you for your interest and happy Thanksgiving!

Good on you for giving it a go! Those crenellated cowlings are a real challenge!

I'll wait for a diecast metal version, but I reckon it would look great in the dark red Boeing house colours.

That looks great!

By the way, I believe Boeing ditched the chevrons in their latest 777X design. As you can see on the site, it no longer displays the engines with chevrons.

Boeing: 777X

True, the chevrons will not be part of any T7 unfortunately..

How did you do the new rounded tail and the thin leading edge of it? I think it looks great so far and the comparison with the B773 fuselage shows the dimensions very well..

do you mean the tail of the 9x is different from 773? More like the tail of a 787?

The tail is a complete redesign, it will not be the old one.. Just look at the pictures that emb190 posted..

It will be more 787 styled, that is correct.. The 777X will be longer in every dimensions, so the tail will be higher.. The old tail came originally from the B772 that was "only" 63,7m long. The shortest 777X will be the -8 starting with 69,5m which is closer to the B77W.. The new B777X generation will have a tail hight of 19,7m while a classic T7 only has a tail hight of 18,5m.. As far as I know, not only the vertical stab will be changed, the horizontal stabs will be enlarged as well.. That is needed because the wings will be stretched, so they need larger stabs to compensate the larger lift/force.

At least they kept the main fuselage and didn't change the rear and the APU like they will do it on the 737MAX - that's something completely different.. Then the project would be a nightmare...

I made a tail change once to convert an A333 to a A332 on a Revell kit.. It's funny that the reason is kind of the oposite here to enlarge the tail.. Airbus released the larger variant first and the wings stayed the same, so only the fuselage became shorter.. To compensate the shorter lever arm of the fuselage, they needed more force = area on the tail.. Same story with the tail of the A318.. Anyway, you can cut it and remodel it or maybe you can get a new tail done through a 3D-printer!?

Have you seen on the pictures that Boeing changed the flaps on the wings completely? There are five flap-track fairings on each wing now, while you only have three on the classic T7 wing..

some updates: the model is sold and it will fashion the Pan Am billboard livery (tasteful choice!)
Also, the vertical and horizontal stabilizers are corrected.
