A380-800 AIR FRANCE 1:125 Scale Kit

  • Back in stock ! This is the largest model kit available of the A380 [ bigger than the Revell Germany issues ]. All plastic, but quite challenging as the fuselage is composed of several sections & needs to be lined up properly.

A large and complex kit of the huge airliner. This is not a project for a kid, even with adult help, unless that adult is an accomplished modeler. The fuselage alone is made up of 11 pieces and needs to be fitted & lined up carefully or you'll end up building a giant banana! The instructions alone are a 43 page book and a stand is included that enables you to 'pose' the model with the aid of a ball & socket. External detailing is excellent [ for it's time - the kit was first issued in the early 2000's ] and a cockpit is included, but internal detail within the body is minimal which is strange as you can pose all the various doors open. With some extra work, such as scratch-building a complete interior with all it's seats [ ! ], you will have a show stopper ! This beast is almost two feet long with a one & a half foot wingspan- this is what we call a coffee table !!!

This is a decent kit but is not for the 'slap-happy' crowd. It should be viewed as a project & requires careful assembly with lots of test fitting & study of the instructions [ which are quite good* ]. The parts do fit together fairly well & with some TLC, a super model can be built ! It is great that Heller is able to keep these kits available & they should be supported in this regard. Maybe one day they can re-issue some of their other 1/125 scale kits [ such as the L1011 ] or maybe create a new one....

* It may seem odd to say "the instructions are quite good", but we have all built...or tried to build kits where the instructions are so vague that you want to pull your hair out! These A380 instructions are quite concise & if properly adhered to, will enable you to build your masterpiece successfully!
