Civilian aircraft: immerse yourself in the world of aviation with Revell Modellbau
Flying has always held a fascination for people: taking to the skies, experiencing the world from a bird's eye view, covering long distances in a short time. Many hurdles had to be overcome before this dream finally came true - and what engineers and technicians achieve in the development and production of civil aircraft is still impressive today. Many important stages that were covered on the way to modern passenger aircraft can be vividly reconstructed with the help of Revell models. Thus, plastic modelling not only offers tinkering fun, but at the same time documents an important part of aviation history.
Building a collection step by step
In Revell's range, interested parties will find unique aircraft types that play or have played a key role in civil aviation. The range of offerings extends from the two-seat glider to the jumbo jet, as the Boeing 747 is colloquially known. Until 2005, the Boeing 747 was the largest commercial aircraft in the world. The jumbo is represented several times in the range of plastic model kits: Hobbyists have the choice between models of the Boeing 747-200 in scale 1:450 and 1:390 respectively, and the completely newly developed Boeing 747-8. All three kits have one thing in common: they replicate the originals exactly. The surfaces are so finely designed that the recessed sheet metal joints can be seen. Landing gear, brake discs, position lights, landing lights, the APU exhaust pipe in the tail area and other components are precisely reproduced.
The Concorde is also legendary. The model of the British-French supersonic airliner should not be missing in any collection. Another important milestone is the development of the Airbus A380. With this type, an aircraft with a continuous double deck was introduced for the first time in 2005. Every detail is accurately represented on a scale of 1:144. The rims of the 22 wheels, filigree struts and struts as well as a decal with the new Airbus décor delight the viewer.
Unique in more ways than one is the DH C-6 Twin Otter. This versatile aircraft is used in both civil and military applications. It offers optimal conditions to be used as a transport, rescue or reconnaissance aircraft. The shoulder-wing aircraft with variable pitch propellers is capable of taking off or landing on short runways. Hobbyists have the choice of equipping their DH C-6 Twin Otter with landing gear, floating pods or ski runners.
Beginner or experienced hobbyist? Revell has a challenge for everyone
Revell makes it easy for hobbyists or parents who want to gift model kits to young modellers. Each description comes with a level number between 1 and 5. The higher the number, the trickier the kit. Level 5 is challenging even for experienced model builders. In addition, an age recommendation helps with the selection.
Tip: High-quality accessories to order right away!
Good tools, high-quality glue and the right paints are important prerequisites for finishing the model perfectly. If you want to start building your model straight away, it's best to think about the right accessories when ordering. Tweezers, precision pliers, brushes or mixing cups for paints - in the Revell online shop, the discerning hobbyist will find everything he needs for his creative leisure activity.
