    Hard to believe no one made any comments on this beautiful model. I didn't pay attention to the correct livery of this aircraft when I bought the 1/400 AC version, and this makes me realize how poorly my model was done (actually, it was brought to my attention by Adrian). Only sticking point with this great model...no bare metal rings on the front of the engine cowlings.

    Yes, apart from that this Herpa model is completely accurate...now if only Andrew had asked before, we could have ensured the AC 1/400 version was like this? Ho hum!

    The missing B.707s still needed to be done: Ethiopian, Uganda Airlines, Air Zimbabwe (rainbow scheme), Kenya Airway, Air Niugini.

    DC-8s still needed to be done: UAT, Iberia ('80s scheme), Air Ceylon, Surinam Airways, Air Spain.



    1/400 scale new mould wish list ; Tupolev Tu-114, Tu-134, Antonov An-12, An-24, Bristol 170 Freighter Mk.31, Armstrong-Whitworth Argosy, Airspeed Ambassador, Avro York

    Maybe he'll release the white-top version (that was the one I was more familiar with) and do his homework on it.

    Unfortunately, not very well. I was very enthusiastic about it until it was pointed out to me just how badly the livery was done. Now I'm hoping the white-top version will be made and more accurately. No excuse for this, AeroClassics!
