Default Photos: Western Pan Am 720s and a 707

Photos really don't do these 720's justice, they look amazing in person. Once upon a time I had all the IF and Aviation 200 Pan Am 707s, but these are all I have left!

Undoubtedly the best 720s and 707s ever produced.

Looking good the Pan Am 70/20 mould. Fits very well. Thanks for the lovely pictures.

The Aviation200 Pan American 707-320B is on the Inflight mold, not a bad mold all things considered.

The AV200 model was originally issued with both the 'Pan American' and 'Pan Am' titles.
The 'Pan American' titled N880PA was painted for the 'Commemorative Final Flight' version and used the blue and white paint profiles of the later 'Pan Am' marking. In revenue flight, the 'Pan American' previous scheme had the white paint coming across the radome to the rain cap and left part of the gray radome under the white paint exposed.

Thanks everyone. I have the AA 720's as well and might do some pics of those too.

CA, that one is probably my favorite variation of the 707/720 paint scheme. But honestly, we need a version with the old turbojets(JT-3). They released an AA with them so they have the tooling. Are there any other major Pan Am 707 variations that haven't been done?

My all time favorite livery also. I would also love a turbojet JT-3 with the short vertical stabilizer/rudder.

The model pictured might be a 707-120, which was the first variant to go into service and might be a variation that hasn't been done to my knowledge. The Herpa 707-320 looks more like the -120 model except the fuselage to wing size ratio is off and wing isn't right for that variant. There are a lot of liveries that could be done with a -120 model.

Yeah that Herpa release just didn't look right, almost guppy like. Here's a 707-300 with the JT3C turbojets. I want one!

Please do post photos of the AA 720's, I would love to see them because the pre release photos had some minor errors, but still a great looking model.

Awesome pics. I've been on the fence about getting the Western 720B with the "Pan American" titles. I have the AV200 707-320B and the Western/Aeroclassics DC-8-32 in my little Pan Am collection.
