Boeing 777 Study Model
A small model to test building a Boeing 777.
About this creation


This is a study model for a larger project of a Boeing 777-200LR. It is built at a minifigure scale of 1 dot to 1 foot. Using this scale the eventual plane model would be 209 dots long or about 5.5 feet, with a wingspan of 200 dots or about 5 feet.

This model was built to see how to build the fuselage cross section using slopes and plates and to estimate the overall project cost in terms of pieces over the whole length of the model.



I added an interior for amusement and put in a 2/3/2 seat arrangement similar to a business class configuration, which is all that will fit in this model. Aisles were added at the request of my friends. It is not intended to be accurate, though I may update this model once the main model is finished.

Unfortunately, I am not sure if I will actually build the full model, now that I know how much it will cost.

The economy seating on the 777 I flew on was 3/4/3.But because you aren't planning on an interior that doesn't matter.

Quoting Steffen Kasteleiner That means - based on the minifig-fuelage height ratio, you fuselage/hull is quite a big too high! :):):) Try it out with the figs, Im curious... Best regards, Steffen
I see what you're getting at--the model is too tall if my goal was to build a plane which has figures--because as you say the figures are too short compared to their width. That said, people are not two feet wide either, which makes the appropriate 3/3/3 or 2/5/2 Economy seating impossible. However, the goal of the model was really to build a scale accurate 777 without minifigures. The figures were added in for amusement later. That's the way I built by CRJ as well--a fuselage plug was built for scaling, filled with minifigures as an example, but the actual CRJ does not contain an interior. The 777 was built against a paper print out using an actual drawing from Boeing.

The fuselage diameter of a B-777 is 6,19 meters. Lets just say an average person is 1,80 meters tall. >>> 6,19 : 1,80 = ca. 3,44 persons/minifigs >>> The fuselage diameter would have to be as high as 3,44 minifigs. Now when you put some minifigs (as persons) on top of each other in front of the fuselage, how many do you need? From how the picture looks, more than 4 - if not even almost 5 minifigs Id guess... That means - based on the minifig-fuelage height ratio, you fuselage/hull is quite a big too high! :):):) Try it out with the figs, Im curious... Best regards, Steffen

Always wanted to build an aircraft wit interieur, but I don't have the parts, so I love to see yours completed. The progres you already made looks teriffic!

Quoting Steffen Kasteleiner The only problem is that the fuselage (again) is too wide to be realistic looking. Since mini-figs are far too broad, one has to make compromises on how many rows of seats can be integrated. Cause the diameter of the fuselage just seems to large, too high, etc. So maybe just a little smaller, with 1 or 2 less seat rows, and the the hull would look great later on the full plane. Cause if you make it as big as it is right now, it would be by far too large, I think...
I actually laid out the model against a CAD drawing from Boeing--they put up scale drawings for airports to use. So the actual ratio is correct, to the size of the windows. But as it being large...well, yes, it will be really huge. And your comment is right in that it may be too large to handle. --Calum

Great. I personally rode on a 777 and that does look a tiny bit too large, but the cargo bay is great. large to me, but Steffen is more experienced than me so....listen to him.

Very nice looking, Calum! The equipment of the interior is very realistic. The only problem is that the fuselage (again) is too wide to be realistic looking. Since mini-figs are far too broad, one has to make compromises on how many rows of seats can be integrated. Cause the diameter of the fuselage just seems to large, too high, etc. So maybe just a little smaller, with 1 or 2 less seat rows, and the the hull would look great later on the full plane. Cause if you make it as big as it is right now, it would be by far too large, I think... But still, a great "case study" for possible interiors of airliners! Best regards, Steffen
