Default BA and the 747 - a colorful history.

Hey all. A few new arrivals for my BA 747 fleet this week prompted me to try and show them all in historical order.. Enjoy.

Kicking off with BOAC, then the Negus livery variations, "British airways", "British" and "British airtours"




Then comes the famous and much sought after Landor livery, "regular", "Children's Conference" and "British Asia Airways" variations.




Then the controversial Utopia/World tails, first on the 747-200.. Hybrid/Transitional (fantasy on the -200 but was worn by a -400), Paithani (India), Chelsea Rose (England), Blue Poole (England), Blomsterang/Flower Field (Sweden) and the Union Flag w/ DREAMFLIGHT titles..





744s in next post..

What a terrific collection, and interesting history lesson for those of us not as familiar with BA as yourself.

I also find it intriguing that your Landors are closer to pure white than my sole Landor 747 (IF200), which is very clearly a grey, rather than white, when compared to the other BA 747s I have in my collection.

I understand that in reality the Landor fuselage was apparently a dove grey, but that most photographs make it appear brighter/whiter than it actually was. I think IF200 missed the mark, and their model is a little darker grey than it should be.

This is for me, the best collection I've seen on this forum, absolutely stunning! A real pictoral history of British Airways relationship with the 747 and one I would love to see in person! The custom models are brilliant and my personal favourites have to be the Landor British Asia Airways bird, definitely one of my all time top 'dream birds' and the ultra rare 'gold nose' G-BNLD. Thank you for taking the time to photograph your aircraft and share with us! Congratulations for amassing such a wonderful collection!

I am lucky enough to have one room with enough shelving to house these, along with the rest of the collection, but I am rapidly running out of room. The boxes are more of a problem than the models. They are stashed away in every closet and storage room I have!

They are actually grey. The pictures were all taken with flash in the basement where the diorama lives. The IF grey is a little darker than the grey on some of my other Landor models from Gemini and Skyline - but still looks pretty good..

Thanks. The Landor BA Asia was one of the most recent additions (see below). I was lucky enough to get the Gold Nose from another forum member after a long search..

Thanks Hu. The Landor BA Asia, Waves of the City (USA) and Waves/Cranes (Japan) were this week's addition (all by Al). I have ordered the decals for the second of the DelftBlue variations and have a donor ready for me to do. That should complete all of the passenger 747 tails that I am aware of. The Chelsea Rose cargo will still be to do. Also up shortly will be the Waves of the City 757 (decals by Al, work by me).

Just came across this thread... Congratulations from Germany! Your "British" 747-100 brings back memories of a flight on G-AWNA "Sir Richard Grenville" from Heathrow to Frankfurt in summer 1979. Yes - a 747 on that short hop... The aircraft then continued to Hong Kong via Bombay. Aaaah, the good old times!

I suspect that BA would rather forget the world tails than put on a display to remind people

You are right that quite a few Rendezvous tail birds were sacrificed to get this far. It used to be quite easy to find a "cheap" one for a donor, but not any more. I have one last donor model that will be worked on in the next couple of weeks, as the decals for the other Delftblue tail 747 arrived yesterday. This will be the fifth 747 that I have done myself, with credit for the great work on the rest going to Al.

Quick update, as many here only read the 1:200 section. I managed to find time to complete the second variation of the Delftblue tail. New one first, picture from earlier in the thread next to it for comparison.

As the Union & Landor IF200 744's are on my most wanted list & have been for a while I've given up hope of finding these now and sincerely hope JCW will consider releasing them

Sorry to resurrect my own thread - but I am almost done with a custom BA World Cargo with the Chelsea Rose tail. Donor was a Risesoon Jade Cargo, repaint by me. Decals by Draw Decal. I need to paint the gear doors and fix the registratoin decal, which disintegrated.

I still want a Diecast version of this plane, but this will do for now.

Repeating the pics of the cargo birds from earlier in the thread - then the new one..

Hey dude, thanks for the update, the new addition is awesome! I remember this bird featuring in a copy of a magazine called 'Airliner world' I used to buy, this aircraft featured in the first copy I bought! Must be back in the late 90s. It would be cool to see this in die cast one day for sure.
The only problem with the plastic models I find is the engine exhausts, it would be nice to see the two tone exhaust on the GE engines which I would have thought the manufacturers could have applied fairy easily. Same for the RR engines, which being pod shaped, I would have thought would have made it easy to replicate.
No flies on you though mate, awesome custom

Yep, almost resurrected this thread myself when I picked up the Landors and the BOAC/BA hybrids but started a new one instead. Check them out at http://www.diecastaircraftforum.com/...-arrivals.html

Thanks. Fortunate indeed to have the space and the means. Both are getting to be in short supply with the pace of new releases however. Still, if those are the biggest problems, still fortunate.

That is the most largest BA collection I've ever seen! I definetly like how you started from the old liveries to the newest ones. A work of art. Well done.

Amazing collection....I only have 2 BAs just got the new one world. I'm a fan of the 744s and they're pretty scarce or extremely expensive!
