747-400
This is a 747-400 built perfectly to scale with Mini-figs. The total length is exactly 6' (211 studs) with a wingspan of 5'6". 1 stud= 1'. I downloaded schematics from Boeing website and spend many hours just planning each section from those plans. The entire structure comes appart in 6 pieces for transport: 2 wings, fusalage, upper deck, tail fin, and horizontal tail section.

Quoting W.H. B. that is awesome! how many bricks did it take?
not sure exactly. I would say between 3000-4000.

Sorry, not from Quebec :) Thanks for the feedback. Love to hear it. I thought about using Technic for the frame but built this for an event with our local library and wanted to show kids what could be done with just basic bricks. I did use technics for the landing gear but all the supporting structures and construction is just basic bricks. It was tricky doing it this way, that's for sure!
Quoting cyberfrank 2010 nick pelletier? est tu quebecois? just in case i m wrong,... this plane is impressive, by it s size mostly! if you re serious, you ll check steffen s building technique, as he s pushed it as far as i can guess it can, without being as good as he is, i know from first glance, that you need to sub build the whole thing with technics parts! it s the best way to rid yourself of the odd angles in your fuselage, this is as difficult as kelso s 8 feet ship! it s a feat! good luck nick!

Quoting mathijs teunissen Thats a great plane. Im planning on building one to!. And Im asking you about that, could you tell me how you build the landing gear. I have no cleu how I should do that. And this must be ask alot off times but how many pieces are in it. And seriusly, where thit you get all one color. Mathijs Teunissen, Holland
The landing gear was a bit tricky. I didn't take any pics but I basically built a small frame out of Technic pieces that fits around the whole fuselage at that point. The gear is supporting the roof at that point as well as being attached all around the circomferance to hold the wait. It was only partially successful.

Quoting Johan Piera Im glad you added the interior shot. It just gives a scope of how big it is. Did you disassemble it?
I did. I needed the pieces for the next project. Though this is something I want to rebuild as I've thought of some better ways of doing some of the sections.

Excellent work. I have also been trying to build minifig scales of lego aircraft but it looks like you beat me to it! Anyways its an incredible job.

Wow, next to that my creations look so small and lame. The scale is impressive, and very cool how you can make it look so real with mostly basic blocks.

WOW!! really nice job.the nose is a bit to stubby but overall,it's awesome!! please check out my creation(not an airplane)the engines are a little out of date on yours.you should put some engines on that are like the ones on the 747-8.but anyway GREAT JOB!!!!!

you know there has been a ton of critisism on this plane. okay so some of your designs didn't follow exactly the model. WHO CARES! THIS HAS TO BE THE NUMBER ONE MOC ON THE NET JUST FROM PURE AWESOMENESS! has anybody built ANYTHING of this size? i don't think so, and even so it's usually with mixed colours. this looks incredable! if you're really into putting it together exactly as seen in real life then i suggest doing what these guys said. but if you don't (or if you ran out of pieces which happens to us all) i say, leave it as is. too bad it only goes up to 5 heads. in words i rate you 7 and 1/2 heads out of 5. simply amazing build!

This project took me about 3 months to build at about 4-8 hours each day. It was a huge project just planning the build.

hey thanks! The landing gear was something I put a lot of design work into. The original plan was going to have moving flaps and rudder and all that, but my supply of needed pieces wasn't up to the task. It is now and i do plan on re-building this again some time. When I do, I'll definetly be adding those fine details. As for the tail, it was a task all it's own just figuring out how to build any sort of shape that size that was going to be strong enough not to collaps under it's own weight. :) Thanks for the feedback!

Really Really well done. You should really build an interior (or at least part of one)

Those engines, PW JT9D's, are only found on -100's, -200's, and sometimes, -300's. -400's use different, more modern engines. You can easily tell by the shape, just search on google for "747 engines". Plus off course the nose is way too stubby, but thats been said many times before. And dont believe the few ppl, even tho they might have worked with jumbo's, who say the nose is supposed to be like that. Cos they're simply not. Landing gear seems reasonably well done, however, I think you should study the plans again and ull find that at least the nose gear is a lttle different. Then the wings; I love their size, and I see u also added spoilers, but on a wing that big i I think you should have done flaps, ailerons and slats too. And finally the tailfin... It takes just one glance at a plan or pic of a real jumbo to spot that you haven't copied the real shape. Cos it's not a sort of rectangle that simply sprouts from the fuselage at a slight angle, like you did, but it's more of a triangle, with the leading fin edge at an angle of about 40 degrees and the trailing edge about 70... Dunno if u added a moving rudder or not, but that too, would look great. So please, use this magnificent base to create a truly realistic model of this legendary beauty.

I had a lot of fun building this one. It's something I plan on building again in the future in order to better shape the front and whatnot. Thanks for the comments!

It's awesome! but the bulge in the back is too boxy. It can be a bit smoother, but otherwise awesome!

I really like the overall shape of your jumbo; wings, empennage and engines look great. The nose however seems a tad too stubby and too wide in general. Concerning the models "minifig-scale", I dont think it can possibly be right unless all the minifigs are very small people: they look a bit lost on those stairs, for instance, and in other perspectives. I see real 747s at work all the time, and think your model must be slighty bigger than actual minifig-scale - but minifigs have odd proportions anyway... Still, a great and extraordinary model!

The nose IS too STUBBY, as well as most of the slopes, BUT its still is an amazing moc. And yes I've seen and been working on lot of 747 in the last 6 years.

Im speechless. The nose is SUPPOSED to be stubby for those who have never even seen these giants. I look forward to more aircraft from you.
