Default Western Models B720s; Northwest & Maof...Pics!

Great mould. Hard to resist. But again, this is something we all agree, Im sure.
Though I still think the nose wheels are a wee bit too small. Being picky, ...perhaps.
Shipped to me with the purpose of photographing them, "à la retro style" here they are, as promised in the email, my recently landed first two WM720s, the Iconic Northwest, and the Maof livery. ( Remember Delta Force?! )
They sure nailed it on that nose area shape, faceted cockpit windows, and a correct vertical stabilizer, not to mention engine pylons and the engines themselves.
Next should be UNITED, im still "missing" one.
And its my favorite US airline.

As mentioned above numerous times, fantastic photos Rui. I've always loved your photos, and appreciate the amount of time and effort required to put out these postcards. I particularly like the Northwest photo #2, reminds me of climbing those unstable air stairs countless times, plus the reflection of the stairs and ramper on the double bubble. Well done!

Lovely pics as usual Rui. I have the Inflight 200 Olympic 720 and she like your Northwest is a splendid model. Inflight have captured that sit that 720's had.

These Northwest Boeing 720's are the best 720's I have seen.

I wish Nick carried Western Models.

Is this 720B a western Model or an inflight 200 model mould ?
Thanks .

I might be wrong but the origin of this mould is SMA, used by WM.
It has nothing to do with the inaccurate Inflight tooling.
