Thanks guys, unfortunately i didn't have much time to concentrate on the paintjob or she'll be a beauty. I had to invest more time into designing the structure and airfoil of the wings so i can guarantee that i can put her in the air safety.

Sure, i've added an attachment of the linkages. The servo is embedded inside the fuselage on the other side so i couldn't really take a snapshot of it, but i drew a diagram of what it actually looks inside!

Its pretty simply actually if you look at it. Just a HXT900 servo and 2 push rods controlling each engine cowl.

Thanks guys for all your fantastic comments.

Building it non-stop for 5days straight was like being in airplane building boot camp. , i got a well deserved rest on a sunday after breathing in all the foam and wood dust along with minor abrasions from using the sanding block.

Another picture of my Boeing 727 with picture just freshly taken outside my house.

Thanks flying_g! by the way are you a Singaporean too?

Demon hunter, thanks for both that very informative videos on the Boeing 727, i didn't know so much about them until i watched them. Back in the 1970s, i'm very sure it's one of the best,if not the best commercial airliners ever built!
