It's ugly, terribly unscale, all that effort to look like arse, and ... It's electric!

That’s right it was originally built as a electric with giant edf system, but probably the next step of making this super ugly non scale jet to be turbine power with probably two bigger size turbines

Looks like a amazing project. That is called modeling at the next level.

Immaculate build, rather spectacular size, what's the AUW? How many kilo of batteries will it carry?
PS, they can always post it in my "What's the heaviest battery load you fly E-powered model" thread, to beat my heavy load creations, LOL.

But actually Honda generator will weigh less than the batteries plus it will run for about 5 hours and no charging needed

Looks ok, but I think this guy Rami RC A-380 is doing a better looking version.

I think Ali shrunk...
I wish I had that kind of time and a bigger workshop, kudos to the guy who built that.

Only thing impressive is the size. Outside of that, i didnt think you could make an A380 any uglier.

Challenge accepted!
I’m about to start building a couple of 1/144 A-380 models that I’ve had hiding in my cupboard for about a decade, on shouldn’t be too ugly, I’m just converting it to a “what if” fire fighting aircraft, the other is going to be an AEWAC / tanker aircraft with all the associated lumps, bumps and appendages (and painted in boring old grey).

I kind of agree... The model itself is amazing and looks to be very well made. But I can't help but stare at that front gear... It just looks like they cut off a piece of aluminum pole from a chain link fence and put a wheel on the end of it.

Good on whoever built that ‘Bus. Doesn’t have to be my cup of tea or be the most amazing build ever for me to simply enjoy and appreciate the effort that OUR FELLOW HOBBYISTS put into it.

The keyboard-warrior “I woulda done….they missed a spot…etc” aspect of these forums is the worst part of our hobby. It’s appalling, the behavior I read here from some.

Until or unless I build -from scratch, mind you- something that required more effort AND turns out better, then I have no grounds to nit-pick any aspect of someone else’s hard work. And even if that day comes, I’m gonna just enjoy the spirit of others’ efforts rather than crap on them.

Because it’s a HOBBY, perpetuated by OUR FELLOW HOBBYISTS.

Dude, get off your high horse

The OP asked for comments and got them, those comments may seem a bit harsh to some, but that’s life.

Like for real though, just because a bunch of architects and structural engineers built a building that you could never build doesn't mean you can't call it ugly... That's a pretty small minded mentality.

Believe it or not, but you are allowed to hate things within your personal "hobby." Not all painters love all paintings. It's okay to be critical of things within your own realm of existence. How old are you???

If we are talking about opinions, the worst thing about this hobby are all the gatekeepers that turn off young people for XYZ reason. I am young enough that I was one of the last generations that built models from scratch and used nitro, when ARF's were just becoming a thing. But that isn't going to stop me from encouraging young folk. There is a LOT worse mentalitiy than whatever the hell you are attempting to point out.
