Yup, I have mine proudly displayed next to the white one. Love it! But sure is a heavy beast, just like the AA DC-10.

Indeed! I have been waiting for this release for years! I have always loved how beautiful this bird looked on short final under the hot Miami sun. First thing i did when I took this beauty out of the box was to look under the wing for that infamous flaw everybody was talking about a few months ago, the previous registration covered up with paint but mine is flawless! I took some pics with my camera phone but i could not managed to attach them here for some reason. Will try again later.

I looked for a former registration on the underside of the wings, too. None to be found. Must have only been on a few of them.

Such a killer bird this one, if I collected Eastern or tristars this would be top of my list, but I got a lot going on elsewhere...there is an Eastern 747 on ebay which I would love but the price is just mental...

Wow, 500 bucks for that 747?!? Nuts. I'd love to own one, but not at that price.

That price is an anomaly. That model regularly appears for <$200 USD, just be patient. Its not a particularly popular release, perhaps because Eastern only very, very briefly operated the 747 (on lease from Pan Am for a few months) before their Tristars were delivered. Its a nice model though. I think I paid about $180 USD for mine about a year or so ago.

That price is quite a bit more reasonable!

This is definitely not a priority for me, though. My priorities are GJ Pan Am B722; GJ Delta widget B722; GJ Eastern B722; TWA L-1011.

Hey guys,

So glad for everyone for standing by your ground and not canceling your orders. This model is a total beauty and a heavy one too. I took some pics with my camera phone i wanted to add here with my other EA birds but the attachments would not load Ugh! anyways, Maybe later I can do something with my Nikon and create a decent photo shoot for you guys!

Cheers

Yes, please do!

I took a couple photos of mine to post to my flickr page, but the photos aren't that great.
