Continuing the series of Boeing triple seven models, this time I made a Boeing 777-200 template from Malaysian government-owned airline, Malaysia Airlines. This model is also a tribute to the victims of the plane that is still the mysterious its whereabouts. Not as I suppose, after often read the news about the MH370 flight, none of the Mh370 number printed on the airframe. Not much news agency were stating the aircraft registration number, 9M-MRO, but often informed simply by the flight number, MH370. B777-200 was the initial version before the 300 series that I have the previously release.
200 series fuselage is more than 10 meters shorter and without the swept wing tip as the 300 series. 200 series is 63.7 meters and series 300 is 73.9 cm. I cut the 300 fuselage, before the wing and after the wing. This model also with different engines, it used Rolls Royce engine. While in the previous release 300 series use General Electric engine.
