Revell already has the Boeing 787 Dreamliner in its kit lineup, so now its European competitor is approaching, in the form of the 1:144 scale Airbus A350-900.

Jetliner fans have a treat in store, for the upcoming A350-900 looks to be a nicely produced piece of kit engineering.

These pictures from Revell show neat detailing and careful attention to panel detail that ought to result in a good looking and reasonably accurate model aircraft.

Produced in the classic Airfix-style 1:144 scale, the Revell A350 is a somewhat bigger bird than its main competitor, the Boeing 787. In fact, the kit shows just how big the real thing is - even at this small scale, the model has an assembled length of no less than 453mm (17.8in).

We’ll let Revell’s test shot pix tell the story, and look forward to the kit proper arriving in stores next month.
