B747F Lego model Since an early age, Silas has enjoyed playing with Legos and building things. At one point, he reached a level where building existing sets became too easy, and he wanted to begin creating his own designs. He says, “I decided to build a Magma Aviation aircraft because it was one of the first Boeing 747s I ever saw up close. It left an impression on me that I couldn’t forget, so I decided to make a to-scale model.”
The 747 model is made up of almost 6,000 pieces, is just over 3 feet (1 meter) long, and has a wingspan of just over 33 inches (84 centimeters). The youngster is specifically fond of the 747, recounting the history of the aircraft.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in Aviation Blog, Aviation News
