Boeing 777-200LR 1:22 scale

Hello All.
My name is Mikhail, I'm from Russia.
First of all I'm sorry for my English, but I want to show my building project of Boeing-777-200 LR by composite + foam technology.



In TRANSAERO Airlines livery



Because my English this blog will be more photos than bla-bla-bla (words)

I start my project in SolidWorks to make molds for fuselage.






To make molds I made positive preform from XPS-foam by CNC











Than parts glued all together



Scale 1:22.............. fuse length is about 3 meters

some info about engines.......
It will be 2xEDF Schuebeler DS-94 DIA High Static Thrust and 2x7800 mAh 12S LiPo









Each EDF has 7+ kg of thrust with 12S. Total 14-15 kg. Flying weight of my model I hope will be not more than 15 kg. I Think it's enough

Subbed'!

Awesome modelling on SolidWorks, I've tried modelling an aircraft on it but don't have the skills.

Look forward to more progress.

Alex.

Those Schuebeler fans have more than enough power!
Peter Michel's A330 is bigger and he also uses these fans.

I fit fuse with glass fabric on epoxy resin (3 layers of 80 g/m2) and I cover with several layers of hard putty.
And off-course a lot of sanding
