Complete Smaug the Dragon Revealed by Air New Zealand

So far the various TV spots and trailers for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has only revealed small portions of the full CGI creature. For the first time, thanks to a time lapse video from Air New Zealand (below), we now have a look at the complete dragon as he was installed on one of their Boeing 777-300ER. The 177 feet long image, according to Weta Digital Visual Effects Eric Saindon, "Capturing Smaug’s presence and the amazing detail in his design while accommodating the windows, doors and wing shape was quite a different experience for us. It was great to see Smaug brought to life, and he appears even larger in the film!"
