Default United 757's

I got the post-Continental United 757 for Christmas and now have them all. I think all four schemes really represent the longevity of the 757. I also got an IF200 AA 732. I'm not sure where I'm going to display that one yet, though.

They all look marvellous on display but my favorite is still the United Battleship 757.

I didn't post it because I know most people hate the mould but such is life.

Are you kidding me, i know it's not perfect but still love the IF 200 737 mould (not the IF 200 727 mould sorry), i always thought the AA titles on the tail looked to small, on later 737 models & MD-80 they made them bigger...

I always like seeing that AA 737-200. It was part of AirCal before the merger with AA and always brings back memories when I see it.

I have this same model. Of course the mold is not the best but the polish makes it look great. Now we need to see your AA polished collection. Oh well at least I do.

Thanks! I like the model, the mold does not really matter too much to me, just can't be to much off.

I'm hypercritical about everything but I always liked that mould. I suppose it could have been better but it could have been a whole lot worse. A good livery seems to make up for the shortcomings.

Those 757s do look great, I'm jealous

Envious of your United B757 shelf. The AA B737 use to come into Vancouver when they first merged with AirCal.

Here you go, Auto. I have one shelf for American bare metal right now. I also have a MD-80, the MD-11, and the 737-200 displayed elsewhere. I sold the 727 & DC-10 earlier this year.

I have 7 bare metals, 4 new scheme and 3 old Eagles. I did order the AA A321 next month.

Sorry, Jan - the 757 is not for sale.
