About this creation
I started building lego just little under a year now. It was when I first started with lego, I built afew 777 models which I thought looked great at the time, however no looking back at them.... they're not so good!

So having just completed a series of Airbus aircraft (a330 and a340), I thought it would be nice to rebuild one of the 777.

I do not have the original models as they were scraped so I started this model from scratch. It oringally started out as a 777-200LR however as time went by making the airframe, I decided I would prefer the slight longer 300ER version.

I would have to admit, with the exception of my latest a340-600, this has got to be one of the bets aircraft I have built.

I like to get my models as accurate as possible, and when doing so in this model, I cheated a little :-S. I decided to cut up some lego pieces to make my own pieces. For example, the raked wingtips are cut from a 45 degree angle wedge piece.

The nose has been rounded off using sandpaper giving it the 'Boeing look'.

The Boeing 777 has a wing with a near impossible wing sweep angle to create with lego however I did attempt in making my own wing pieces with an angle close to that of the 777. I cut off the front of several wing pieces and giving them a greater angle. I then stuck on a 'new front' to these pieces thus making them look like original wing pieces.

I could have built the wings similar to the Lego 787 Dreamliner model however these wings are much stronger and larger and the under surface is not cluttered with large technic angle bricks.

I hope to turn the colour scheme into either Air France, Air New Zealand, South African Airways or JAL.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed building it!

If anybody requires any more pictures of certain areas, just let me know :-)

   Note the brand spanking new family digital camera! No more crappy camera phone pictures to endure!

   From several views the model looks slighty too short to be a 777-300, where as from other angles, it looks too long to be a 777-300 :-S

   Trying to make the 777 nose was extremely difficult as it kept ending up looking like my previous airbus nose. Eventually

   The tail section of the 777 has a 'flat head' screw driver appearance making it recognisable from most other aircraft. Note that there is not much curves on the Boeing when compared to the 'curvy' Airbus.

   Here is the 'flat head screw driver' tailcone. I cheated here. I took several 1 x 4 wedge pieces, cut 1 x 4 off the insides, and glued the remaining wedge shapes together.

   Note the triple bogie undercarriage. I am still missing the gear doors which partially cover the undercarriage legs. Again notice the wingtips. These are known as 'raked' wingtips. They are only found on several versions of the 777 aswell as the latest version of the 767.

   My favourite view of this particular model. Note that this and the next photo are of my first attempt of the 777. The tail colours are different and the nose is still that of an Airbus.

   Earlier attempt of model. When building aircraft, I always build a model... think about how I can improve on it, and then rebuild the parts I do not like, which in this case was the nose.
