      Looking for accurate instructions to convert the 1/144 revel/Zvezda 787 into a 787-10. Thanks. Just built the Air New Zealand 787-9. turned out really beautiful. looking to build a KLM 787-10 now.

      First KLM 787 will be PH-BHA a 9 series, will be interesting to see a 10 series when finished.
      Dont forget to share us photos of your models.

      Do you all have any other documentation on the visual differences of the 787-10 aircraft with 787-8 and 787-9? Curious if the height of the rear strut is higher on the 781 than the 788 or 789.

      "Designers targeted 90% commonality between the 787-9 and -10 and achieved 95%; the 18-ft stretch was reached by adding 10 ft forward of the wing and 8 ft aft, and by strengthening the fuselage for bending loads in the center wingbox. Because of the length and additional tail strike protection needed, a semilevered landing gear enables rotation over the aft wheels rather than at the bogie center, like the 777-300ER, and cabin air conditioning has 15% more capacity. The first and third -10s will have Rolls-Royce’s new Trent 1000 TEN engines, while the second will be powered by the competing General Electric GEnx-1B engine."

      Also, has anyone built one, yet, in 1/144?

      Regards,

      John

      On Arrival (1/144 scale):

      SQ A350-900
      BA A380-800
      BA 747-400
      EK 777-300ER
      AA A320-200

      The main gear struts are not longer, they just have different operating geometry. If the strut was longer it wouldn't fit into the gear well. The "sit" of the airplane when it's standing on its gear is identical. Externally there is no other difference between the -8, -9, and -10 besides the fuselage length.
