Note

Takeoff speed is around 200km/h, max tested speed is 900km/h, stall speed is around 140km/h, its nose heavy; use trim to level it, AG5 helps too.

This isn't actually my first 747 project, I had built one before; the 747-146 JAL and borrowed most of its sub-assemblies apart from the wing assembly to this project, most notably; the nose, and tail. Not much changed in the sub-assemblies apart from extruding the nose to the proper proportion (the blueprint was distorted) and adjustment of Elevators and Rudder.

One key change from the 747-146 Project, is the low part count! And yet still has more features than the 747-146. This is because of the changing of wing assembly, or more accurately: Replacing of wing assembly. The reason why the 747-146 had a high part count was because of the method used to construct it: Triangulation, and I find that method finicky, and inefficient. Plus it doesn't even look good how I executed it, nor is it more detailed than 747-400 wings.

And here is the thing I am most proud of in this project, its that the flaps extend! Before this apart from the An225, all of the planes I have created lacked flap extensions, this one doesn't. And yet, you would expect this feature to balloon the parts, on the contrary, no. It barely added 10 parts. But it does look cool, extending the flaps to the lowest setting!

And since there's parts to spare, I decided to add emergency slides, another thing I am proud of, it looks good enough, and functions.

I am proud of this Aircraft, managed to fix the 747-146 to a mobile friendly and more capable 747-400
