I ordered this set a couple of years ago from LEGO.com at 50% off for parts. I didn't plan on building the plane. Since I recently bought the CITY Space Shuttle and wonder how it would look on the back of the 787.
INSIDE THE BOX:
The box contains around 16 plastic bags, 1 sticker sheet and 2 instruction bookets.
A sample instruction page.
The build was fairly long. There were many small pieces like 50 clear 1x1 cheese slopes to attach for the windows.
Many 1x__ plates to build up the side of the fuselage
For a 1197 piece set, there weren't many extra pieces.
THE PLANE, THE PLANE, BOSS:
The turbofan engines are nicely detailed.
Interesting way to do the nose.
Design: 8/10 Looks great using standard plates and bricks. The fuselage is pretty sturdy.
Parts: 8/10 Good supply of standard plates.
Build: 7/10 Long, somewhat repetitive but enjoyable once you get by the 1x1 plates and slopes.
Playability: 7/10 It is very big to swoosh. It works best as a display model since it doesn't come with landing gear.
Price: 8/10 7 cents USD per piece.
Overall: 8/10 This model of the Boeing 787 is over 2 feet in size. It's big and nicely detailed. It'll certainly impress your friends.
HOW DOES IT LOOK AS A SHUTTLE CARRIER AIRCRAFT (SCA)?
I think I may MOD it into a 747.
