Another Boeing 777 airliner model papercraft template, this time I made British Airways triple seven (B777-23/ER). This Waterside based airline has 43 of B777-200ER airplanes. There is something new in its logo, a crown logo added beside British Airways logo. The template is exactly the same as previous B777-200 model, only different is on the livery. The assembly instructions is the same as well. For you who is not familiar with model with inner glue tabs perhaps find this model hard, but if you try it according to the instructions I'm sure you will find this method is easier than ordinary pepakura style glue tabs.
ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS :
Assembly nose and front fuselage section by using inner glue tabs (45,46,47,48,49) inside the parts. You can use 100-120 gsm paper for all parts except for ribs and formers.
Assembly wing base, using formers (3 x 73) to form the shape. Use cardboard 0,5 - 1 mm thick cardboard for the formers.
Combine center fuselage section with wing base ans glue them secured. Make sure they are centered.
Assembly the rest of the fuselage, the rear section (15,13,20) glue them together by using inner glue tabs (49,50)
