A380 Size Comparison (Photos)

Sun Oct 23, 2005 3:29 am

I have used my 1:200 scale models in order to demonstrate the true size of the A380 in relation to the B747 and B737-300. Just click on the thumbnails for a larger version. Check the size of that tail!

From the top the A380's not much bigger than the 747...what impressed me was the tail's size! Huge!

The JumboJet has a fuselage width of 251 inches. The WhaleJet has a fuselage width of 281 inches.

Just as the JumboJet originally had 9 abreast seating and ended up 10 abreast, the WhaleJet initially will have 10 abreast seating, but seems likely to end up 11 abreast (3-5-3).

Well, the model may not, but the real thing has gotten off the ground many many times during testing.

You obviously haven't read the news much lately. Seems like we have two of them off the ground.

The interesting thing is the size vs. the amount of people. If we look at the scale of the 747 to the A380, and the amount of more pax that the A380 can take then the 747 how is the difference?
is the 747 wingspan more efficient than the A380?

Wow.. higher risk of getting a "bad" seat! I think I only want to fly on that plane once.. I would prefer a smaller plane

For me, the most striking feature of the JumboJet/WhaleJet/Antonov comparison is the difference in diameter between the engines of the JumboJet and the WhaleJet. Wow! I can't wait to see the engines on Y3. They could be nearly the diameter of the B767 fuselage.

Is it just me, or is the wingspan of the 733 just about equal to the span of the horizontal stabilizer on the A388? Wow!

I've seen the A380 in flesh many times and it's size is not so impressive.
The most impressive parts are first the vertical stabilizer and second the wing size and shape.

That's right! - I saw at The Paris Air Show. On the ground it looks just like a duck just from behind {;-D} It's little like the A318 or the 736 - they are too short. Can't wait to see the -900

But it the wingspan is impressive, - and so is the silence when she take off.

I think it´s not so impressive, from a distance that is.

Oh man, I didn't realize the Mriya was THAT much bigger.

By the way, a kit for the A-124 (in 1/144) came out recently, I think I'll build that someday, then I can compare it to the Fokker 100.

Your right, I've even noticed that a few month ago when I compared the A380 with some other 1:500 scaled models. Just amazing!!!!

I tried it with my 738 and it's wings are a little bigger than the A380 hor. stab. But IIRC the 733 has a smaller wingspan than the 738.
