Niiiice, these were going for eye watering prices a couple of years back so I threw the towel in myself - this is such a hot looking livery.

Nice catch!! And GREAT model. This is one of my Holy Grails too, but I haven't been able to find one yet.

Glad to see you were able to snag one.

I approve of this thread. :-)

A great find and she will look amazing in your collection.

Congratulations

There seems to be a lot of collectors wanting this scheme on a 747-244.
Wonder which manufacturer will jump to get another one out.

It would be good if they can make another registration, but the more collectors the better, so a re-release would be fine in my book too.

With regard to Gemini Jets 200 producing the Pan Am billboard Boeing 747 AND IF 200
re-releasing the same PAA B747 AND the number of other IF 200 re-released B747's
(but now polished) I have a very strong feeling that IF 200 and possibly GJ 200 will produce the SAA B742 in delivery colors again.

I would guess within the next few months.

Also I wish that GJ 200 would produce the SAA Boeing 727-44 in the 1968 color scheme (similar to the delivery colors
but a different shade of blue plus block titles).
The recent release GJ 200 Pan American B727-21 is a superb model !

Just about!

Yes, I owe you one!

Even though painted, I like them just as well as the polished re-release of models. The engines that are painted on the polished models makes the whole plane look unbalanced to me.

There is also a fantasy DC-10 in this scheme.

Then in regular release there is:
707
727
747SP (existing + new release announced)
747-200
HS748

I am still waiting for someone to do the 737-200 in this scheme.

EDIT:
Oh. And the most important one still outstanding (in my opinion) in this colour scheme is the Airbus A300. That looks awesome as well.

By the way - what is the difference between new release of B747SP SAA and previous one? Except registrations - polished engines? Other parts?
