Saying that this model is a B 707-100 is a bit misleading.

This aircraft is the last B 707-138 short body bought by QANTAS, later converted to -138B and sold to LAKER.
Only seven were built.

I am sure that this model will use the fuselage of the B 720 and the position of the wing under the fuselage will be the same.

The wing ?
It will be new, wait and see …

A standard B 707-120 (long body) without any compromise would be welcome.
Aero Classics ?

Looks interesting, I'd love it if they or someone would do the Qantas 707-138B VH-EBM which is now registered as N707JT and owned by John Travolta. This I would definitely get and I'm sure it would be welcomed by many.

I also agree with Jean Pierre's comments. The 707-100 issue was usually avoided by manufactures by using the 720 fuselage. Not even 3 meters difference in real life, but something to look at at 1:200.
At 1:400 I had no problems buying an AC Air Cyprus 707-138B which was in fact a 720B. In 1:200, of course, I would be more strictly.
Please excuse my bad English, which has become worse for the sake of Russian language which I now have to use daily (mother tongue: German).

Let's see if it is a 707-138, I hope so. The missing piece of the 707 Family.

Do you see the antenna on the starboard wing? G-AWDG

Thank you Steve for these nice and rare pictures.
A fifth engine available as an option on our models would be interesting.

I remember that long time ago I flew with a fifth engine under the left wing, this possibility was offered on PW JT 9 D3 or D7 powered B 747-100s, the GE powered aircraft were not equipped to carry a fifth engine.

Quite seriously, this fifth engine option could be considered by one of our manufacturers for one of their B 747-100s.

JC Wings ?
Caution, only PW powered aircraft.

Jean Pierre.

I just ordered mine, its an ARD200 release by inflight200, I do hope they do the Caribbean Airways version too and someone, anyone, please do the 'pocket rocket BAC111' to complete the Laker line-up.

I don't want to highjack this thread.
Pictures of this Caravelle are very rare, not enough to make my own judgement.

Could you publish a few pictures of your model ?

Thanking you in advance.

Ooh, sorely tempted. I'd be just as tempted if they did a British Eagle version. I love the history of the British independents, Bamberg's Eagle and Laker's, erm, Laker in particular. Both took on the established state owned airlines and, well to be honest, they lost in the end but they both ruffled a few feathers on the way and paved the way for the end of state protectionism in the airline business.

I can't imagine the 'new tooling' will amount to much and the mould will be pretty much he same as the 720. In real life the 720 is 20 inches (500 mm)longer than the -138 which equates to 0.1 inch or 2.5 mm in 1:200. Bearing in mind what ARD have done with the Comet 4 and 4B/4C fuselage they are hardly likely to go to the expense of creating a different mould for the -138. It is not just a case of the fuselage being a tad shorter than the 720 though. According to AIRLINERCAFE.COM - Ultimate Boeing 707 Guide the 720 was 40 inches longer than the -138 ahead of the wing and 20 inches shorter aft. If, therefore, ARD have simply used the 720 mould for this -138 the wings will be 0.2 in or 5 mm nearer the tail than they ought to be. Again, not much and clever printing of the windows and doors will render it more or less invisible but it might put some purists off.

Of course all that assumes that the 720 and -138 mounds are one and the same thing and also that the dimensions of the current -720 mould are entirely accurate. Until we can compare the two together it is all speculation.

Sorry I just realised now that IF 200 is about to issue a -138B . My hope goes for a real one not a 720B copy . Cheers

Sorry to ask this stupid question :
When they say " NEW TOOLING " , does this means "NEW MOULD" ?

i guess a B707-138B basically is a 720 shrink (looking at my SMA Olympic 720 vs AC200 707-138).
