Construction of Revell Airbus A350

The A350 is the first Airbus airliner with wings and fuselage made primarily from carbon fibre. Compared with traditional materials, carbon fibre is lighter and more robust. Thereby reduces fuel consumption and the cost of maintenance. Furthering fuel efficiency is the adaptive wing design. In mimicking the movement of birds, the wings can change shape whilst in flight to achieve maximum aerodynamic efficiency.

2) The plastic components were pieced together to ensure everything fits. Test fitting the parts helps to work out which parts need painting and which are going to be covered up. This ensures that paints are not wasted and joints won’t be clot by layers of unnecessary paint.

The plastic pieces were held together with masking types. Disclaimer – no airplane was harmed in the making of the model.

Some surfaces on these engine components are left unpainted as they would be covered up

4) Once the fuselage was glued together, the model was primed. Revell Color Stop was applied to mask out the windows before the primer was sprayed on. This is a white gel that turns clear when dried. After priming, the gel was peeled off.

5) Decals were added to the model before a layer of varnish was applied to protect the paint and blend in the decals.
