    Not that I'm aware of, only the later white top scheme.

    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

    You have a Great taste in vintage liveries M404!

    I love the old red & blue Northwest Connie scheme of the 50's along with the B.O.A.C scheme.

    Thanks DEMONDRIVER, as is yours! The high level of artistic appreciation is evident in your declaration of "love" for the old NWO color scheme (of which I am also a big fan...see the attached foto). I do not believe this BOAC scheme made it to any other airframe in the BOAC fleet...and this is the only pic I have found revealing this scheme on any BOAC birds.

    Thanks for the lead Jonathan...I wonder if this is a recent release of theirs as had checked their website several moths ago and did not find anything. It is currently in stock and available in 1/72nd....almost 32USD but it is what I've been looking for so it has been ordered!

    Could well be, their catalog is definately growing.
    I just bought a couple of sets. I wanted World Airways DC-6 for a long time and when I finally sat down to order i found they have added 707 and 727, so I got all three!
    They are a bit pricey and the exchange rate doesnt help, but as you say, sometimes it just cant be helped.

    for future reference there is also twosix

    edit to add: Im also a fan of the old Red Tail
