    PHOTOS - Western Models - 727 - Fly Eastern

    Latest from the Western stable.. it might be an older mold, but the basic shape is right... crude wing joint in todays terms....

    Excellent photos. The wing joints are a bit rough in my opinion, but she is still very lovely.

    Amazingly accurate cockpit window and nose proportions.

    True about the wing joints. But overall, sexcellent.

    I am missing the antennae and drain masts present on other manufacturers' releases, otherwise, it's a nice mold.
    Flight two, the Golden Argosy, will depart for Rome on schedule.

    Hi,

    I´ve always mixed up feelings with Western.

    The basic shape is correct paint is fantastic, they are very limited and the prices are still acceptable.

    But on the other side it gets very clear that these are old moulds, e.g. no recesses panel lines and so on.

    I never know if these Western planes are a good buy or not.

    I think Western Models really knows what they are doing.
    Now THAT is an oval No.2 air intake.
    What exciting releases!
