The boeing 727 was the best selling airliner, until it got replaced by the 737, which then took over that spot
About this creation
This plane is not made to fit mini figures. Though it is still a fairly large plane being around 70cm. long.
The 727 has always been one of my favourite planes, i think it is just something about those three engines. This one is finished in a sterling airways livery, though it is not the one that was used most frequently. If you search "oy-sbh" on google, you can get a idea of what it was meant to look like.
I have used blueprints from the real plane to create this one, and i think that the proportions fit the real thing very well. The only thing that does not match up perfectly are the wings, which are a bit too short. Though, as you can see they have working flaps, which capture the look of the real ones very nicely, if i should say so myself.
I should say that i have taken some inspiration for the nose from jindra1984's model of a 737 on LEGO ideas. It took a bit of time to finish this build, but i am really happy with how it turned out. I hope you like it, and stay tuned for my next build (hint: it will be a fighter plane)
