      Interesting finally we have some photoetch for the Boeing 777 and 787!

      I got a few of each some weeks back. Thinking about NOT using many of the bits, including
      the doors on the 787. No matter how tight to the fuselage you fit them, they'd still give
      an unacceptable scale protrusion, IMO.

      I always end up not using about half of the parts on a PE set like this. The Extra Tech sets want you to combine five molecular sized pieces to make one nose gear door. No thanks, my tweezers can't even hold those parts, let alone folding them in three different places and gluing them in the proper position.. add the fact that my eyes are young and my hands not shaky. I really don't know how people manage to use them. I only buy them if the model REALLY needs it (it's a good improvement on the empty wheel wells on the Hasegawa E170 for example).
      I'd buy a set with a lot of generic antennae, pitot tubes and windshield wipers though, if it ever becomes available
      The landing gear wiring on the 777 set looks pretty cool by the way, for me it makes it worth buying it (if I ever buy the 777 kit in the first place)

      You really should consider buying the T73, J. It's a much better base for a -200 than the MC kit,
      if that's the way you want to go. And there are plenty of livery possibilities for either series.

      Yes that's the norm for me. A few of the fiddly bits will not get used. The doors are a little silly.
