    I read the advertisement that I was buying for my husband who is an advit avaition fan and love planes. The posting wrote that it was a Boeing 787 Dreamliner…however this product was NOT the dreamliner…it came in a box labeled Civil Liner…it looked NOTHING like the box. Both and my husband is very disappointed. He still continued to assemble the plane in hopes it will look like the box picture…sadly it doesnt and I am out of my money for a piece of CRAP!

    This is a wonderful model of the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner and is exactly what is listed in the description. While I have not started construction on this one yet, I can say with relative certainty this is among the best designed models I’ve seen of civilian aircraft.

    First of all, Zvezda has a contract with Boeing to produce ‘official’ licensed models of the Boeing aircraft. The detail in this model is OUTSTANDING especially in the engines which are arguably one of the best parts of this aircraft. Zvezda has even gone so far as to mold the main engine intake fan with 2 layers of blades instead of just a sculpted disk as is used on most other aircraft models. The fixed directional airfoils behind the main fan are also molded in exceptional detail.

    There is very little to almost no `flash’ on the molded pieces (areas where the molded plastic seeps between the molding equipment leaving behind excess around seems that has to be painstakingly removed and sanded); and the fit of the pieces is very well. There are also clear piece fittings for the aircraft windows (also unusual as most companies simply leave them as empty holes).
    Most details are molded very nicely, though there is none in the aircraft wheel wells which may be a downside for someone who plans to build this model with landing gear extended. The decals provided are in the Boing standard livery and pretty close to the originals.

    One point of note is that the plastic is molded with a slightly rough texture which may be a problem with painting; however, gentle sanding with fine grain sandpaper will remedy this.

    One builder tip:
    In order to match the Boing `swoosh’ livery you will have to paint a very sinuous line between the blue color on the bottom and white on top. If you make a color or high contrast copy of the decal sheet, you can use them as a template to lay a paint mask that will match the contours of the decals.

    UPDATED: There is one problem I’ve had with this model is that the decal sheet is not as detailed as some other manufacturers (namely Revell). The 747 version that Zvezda did has more decals that make it easier to paint, but this one was more sparse. However, I won’t dock a star since the overall material is still very good and I plan on getting aftermarket decals to do this in an actual airline livery.


    There are too many small and brittle pieces that easily brakes so you need to be assembled delicately. The instructions should have more details I rate it 2 of 5 for the price they should include tips. With that said it’s over priced.
