-Basic Description

They, just, keep, getting, SMALLER. This craft is a full stock 747-100 built at aproximately 1/5 scale! Out of all of my 747-100s this one was by far the most difficult to make, replicating the wings and tailfins using stock parts was an absolute headache. The result, however, is probably my most accurate 747-100 to date, which is kind of sad to be honest. This 747-100 is so small that I had to make the cockpit out of a monoprop tank and a bunch of gravioli detectors, as all of the actual cockpits were far to large to fit into the craft. I am also quite proud of the turbofans which are made out of junos as well as a few other parts. This is getting into RC plane territory and that scares me. This craft is so small that ,without any assistance from ladders or retracting the landing gear, a kerbal can climb on top of it, seriously.
