waiting for the 'tirade of abuse' from the 'FANTASY' knockers!!! I would take one!! and a BOAC, LANDOR, B/CAL...................
I don't understand people who get all upset about it. I am personally not a fan myself and can't think of a fantasy model of any kind that I would buy but I certainly don't get mad if someone makes one and other people want to buy it. It's your money...
I kinda like the BA Union Jack L1011. Would surely have looked nice in reality.

Not a bad idea at all but I'm still hoping that KLM will order them at some point & that Gemini 200 will produce them & we as collectors & KLM fans will purchase them!
"The 747 full pax will be replaced with the 777-300ER, for which there are still a couple on order. After taking a closer look, it becomes clear that both aircraft are very similar in terms of passenger capacity for these lower density long haul routes. The critical difference is the cargo capacity of course: KLM is forced to say goodbye to the highly profitable ‘Combi’ concept. While the economic crisis of recent years has severely impacted the demand for cargo and the resulting capacity requirements, KLM continued its efforts to persuade Boeing in building a 747-8 Combi. Due to the added certification costs of such a unique configuration, it only becomes profitable for Boeing with a certain number of aircraft on order. KLM does not need that many aircraft on its own and so far there have been no other interested parties, not even Air France, for a combined order. Therefore Boeing will not offer a 747-8 Combi and KLM will end operating the 747 when its last 747-400 are put out of service."
Seems like KL will focus on its 77W, B787-9 and B787-10 and will most likely get B77X in the future..
