Designed for the Revell 1/144 scale 747-400 series, however these leading edge krueger and variable camber (VC) flaps can be used on any 1/144 scale Boeing 747 series kit (Boeing 747-100, -200, -300, 747SP, -400, -400D and 747-8).
What comes in the kits:
Left Wing Krueger Flaps (section of three flaps)
Left Wing Inboard Variable Camber Flaps (section of five flaps)
Left Wing Outboard Variable Camber Flaps (section of five flaps)
Right Wing Krueger Flaps (section of three flaps)
Right Wing Inboard Variable Camber Flaps (section of five flaps)
Right Wing Outboard Variable Camber Flaps (section of five flaps)
Installation involves cutting the leading edge sections out of the wing. I recommend doing this prior to joining the upper and lower wing parts together so any desired detailing of the visible inner wing area can be done. If the model is a static ground display this can be skipped as the area is not visible.
Paint the leading edge sections and wings prior to assembly. When installing, simply offer up the parts to the correct section of the wing and glue the retraction fittings in position using fine super glue. Use reference photos to obtain the correct angles.
This kitset is recommended to be used with kit set '1/144 Scale Boeing 747 Trailing Edge Flaps' also available on Shapeways.
Modlling tip - if you are displaying a B747 shortly after touch-down/on roll-out the outboard VC flap sections should be OPEN only. The inboard Krueger flaps and inboard VC flaps should be closed or closing. This is a feature of the B747 to prevent damage occuring the the Krueger flaps and inboard VC flaps during reverse thrust deployment.
