I have this Robert, one of my favourites. I used to see them regularly at Heathrow, Paris CDG, Frankfurt and JFK. A classic colour scheme as well, compared to some of the c--p we see nowadays.

It has a nose door too and more importantly the original IF wheel assemblies, far better then what we have been getting on the recent releases.

I have this one also. One of my favorites. Still remember seeing it many times at MIA a long time ago.

I swore I'd never have any IF200 747s because of their size, until this one came along! I remember them well at LHR. I originally wasn't going to buy it because I thought the engines were wrong - turns out this aircraft was quite unusual because it was delivered with P&W engines and the later reengined with GEs. I remember the real thing with GEs, hence my initial scepticism at the accuracy of the model and even now I'd rather it had been done with GEs. But it's a lovely model.

Andy,

The aircraft was re-engined with a different and bigger version of the JT9 which looked similar in shape to a GE. The next Seaboard 747s were delivered with this engine from the factory.
