747 : what makes it iconic thus recognizable on any item

Sat Dec 30, 2017 6:59 pm

All,

I am playing with the idea of making an object, referring to the 747 queen of the sky. The object could be anything, like a piece of jewelry.

But, the object does not necessarliy need to be a plane like thing. E.g. it can be a special model of an Audi , like the Audi A4-747 ... what I am looking for is “what makes the 747 the 747? Sure, the hump, but what else? Is is the nose gear, the 18wheels gear, the specific button in a cockpit design? I need little tell-tales for creating this.

Any input is welcome!

Thanks,

Maurice

Hi Maurice,

I think you have a few good points there but I also think that the fact that it’s the first jumbo jet makes it quite iconic. The 747 opened up quite some new possibilities in air travel by making it faster and more comfortable. Maybe you can use this?
