Default Inflight200 Boeing 747SP SOFIA, NASA (United Livery) IF747SP145

I got this from FlyingMule part of my black friday shopping:

Inflight 200
Boeing 747SP
SOFIA (Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy)
NASA. (United Airlines Livery)
Item: IF747SP145

Length: 11"
Width: 11.75"

I was waiting for the "true" 747SP SOFIA livery (White with the blue cheatline) but I figure it would be a while until that comes out - if they ever do it...because if they want to do is accurately the mould has to be changed so the telescope portion would bulge out - so this is going to be as close as I can get to the 747SP NASA. It's still in the United Airline livery back in 1998, it has a black square painted on the aft fuselage to indicate the location of the door that will be opened in flight to allow the telescope to access the sky. This is my second 747SP model - the first one in the famous Pan Am colors. Here's some pictures:

Nice model, thanks for sharing. I agree though, I would prefer a release with the current scheme, if it ever is released. As for the door bulge, I doubt this will ever happen as I don't think they would produce a new mould for only one release...maybe with 3d printing one day...who knows.

I LOVE 747s!
