Ansett's B747-312 Sydney 2000 01, VH-INJ is Here!
 
Hey all :cool:

Finally something new from my end, here my 28th Boeing 747 scale 1:200 model which is the following

Boeing 747-312
Ansett Australia Limited "Southern Cross Livery 1997-2007"
VH-INJ "Sydney 2000 01"
✈️
Scale 1:200
JC Wings / BBOX

To find a new one in box took me 2 years and 4 months to find, a friend of mine from Frankfurt, Germany had two and he was willing to part with one, this was just fantastic!!!
That friend is DA.C member Still Air

So major credit goes to him for helping me this Epic Australian B743! :cool:

And within 3 days this beauty arrived, ultra fast shipping and fantastic packing, Martin aka Still Air from the DA.C Community helped me out with this beautiful blue 'n' white bird, enjoy the photo's!



Firstly here's some pics of the box and it's contents

Here the pics of the model it's self:
https://abload.de/img/vh-inja7rk0l.jpg

I love this logo and the vivid blue hues within the backdrop, just brilliant

https://abload.de/img/vh-injb0hkmh.jpg

And how the dark blue blends in to light blue and from light blue to white, it's very well done:

https://abload.de/img/vh-injcljjd0.jpg

This model is a must have for all Flying Artwork B747's!

here you can clearly see that the artwork is in a mirrored config:

Here the rest of the pics of this beauty!

https://abload.de/img/vh-inji16jcw.jpg

Also note the crystallized landing lights in the wing and nose gear:
https://abload.de/img/vh-injjkuk3h.jpg

After making this photo I kind of when photo crazy made a few more at slightly different angles, this model is just amazing all over!
https://abload.de/img/vh-injk-1iijsr.jpg

https://abload.de/img/vh-injk-20pkkw.jpg

Here that cool Sydney 2000 art logo, also note the shadow effects under the text, good that the artist did keep that in mind!
https://abload.de/img/vh-injk-3yzjic.jpg

Here this AAL B747-312 in all her glory, from this view, I always loved how B747-300's looked like:
https://abload.de/img/vh-injlbmkkj.jpg

Here the tail art logo, it resembles the Southern Cross, hence the me of this livery being Southern Cross Livery, which was used from 1997 to 2007, the year that Ansett closed doors...
https://abload.de/img/vh-injmbljan.jpg

Here a perfect rear shot, I have a feeling my photography has improved somehow <3
https://abload.de/img/vh-injnnuj4o.jpg

This shot also clearly points out on how the artwork is mirrored:
https://abload.de/img/vh-injozmk24.jpg

Here some stand shots :)

A nice wooden foot, always loved that from JC Wings, a shame their newer models don't have these, something I won;t have to worry about.
https://abload.de/img/vh-injonstanday2kgd.jpg

Here from the other side
https://abload.de/img/vh-injonstandbqfjpn.jpg

And a closeup of it's head area, just pure beauty from every angle!
https://abload.de/img/vh-injonstandcp1j5c.jpg

Here pics of my two AAL B747's that are the following

Boeing 747-312
Ansett Australia Limited "Southern Cross Livery 1997-2007"
VH-INJ "Sydney 2000 01"

Boeing 747-412
Ansett Australia Limited "Southern Cross Livery 1997-2007"

Hey many thanks man, all for the love of the Queen of the Skies, Joe Stutters miracle and as a major Boeing 747 fan myself this one was really a must have :cool:

Not many to go for now VH-EBU is next, I successfully reserved it for April 24th, Nalanji Dreaming from JC Wings/ BBOX that being :)

So far so good though :cool:

Beautiful 743! Never knew the -300s had such fanciful colors.

Gold Leader 03-29-2019 01:54 AM

Re: Ansett's B747-312 Sydney 2000 01, VH-INJ is He
 
Thanks DC-10 Tony :D Yeah well don't forget ZS-SAJ Ndizani, a SAA B747-312, you can check my thread of that beauty here:
https://www.diecastaircraftforum.com...j-ndizani.html

And VH-EBU Nalanji Dreaming a QF B747-338 :)
https://www.diecastaircraftforum.com...e-changes.html

And there may be a few others, the ones I wanted I have and are getting, Nalanji I get on April 24 , so one B747 per month yeah is doable for my doings, I just make reserves to make it doable hehe

Were there any specially panted DC-10's or MD-11's like these flying artwork B747's?

I don't recall any. If anything, it would most likely be on the MD-11 since murals on airliners wasn't really a thing untill the late 90s I think... But don't quote me on that. I'm positive there are more knowledgeable folks here who know more than I.

Very nice colorful addition, never knew jc wings released a -300.

Gold Leader 03-29-2019 02:40 AM

Re: Ansett's B747-312 Sydney 2000 01, VH-INJ is He
 
Many thanks Baerke :)

As for JC Wings and B747-300's they did quite a few though, like the SAA B747-312 ZS-SAJ Ndizani:

https://abload.de/img/zs-sajboxal2d4r.jpg


https://abload.de/img/zs-sajboxb0uid7.jpg

https://abload.de/img/zs-sajdlcibf.jpg

Here the AAL B747-312 VH-INJ for the ref:


https://abload.de/img/vh-injdt6k1h.jpg

And the QF B747-338 VH-EBU Nalanji Dreaming for example :cool:

https://abload.de/img/nalanjidreamingbbox-jqzk60.jpg

https://abload.de/img/nalanjidreamingbbox-j6dkvi.jpg

I don't have a box shot of the Ndizani but it's definitely from JC Wings like my Ansett B747-312 is like my SAA B747-312 Ndizani also is :)
And it could be that Gemini Jets 200 also was part of making these, not sure though :cool:

Nice, love the Olympics liveries. It's a real shame what happened to Ansett.

I got to watch my school headmaster run a length of the torch relay as a kid in the lead up to the Sydney games.

Gold Leader 03-29-2019 08:38 AM

Re: Ansett's B747-312 Sydney 2000 01, VH-INJ is He
 
Hey thanks M404 :cool:

Well there are a few on ebay, but more for what I paid for mine mainly the shipping and custom taxes made all the ones on ebay too much for me, the customs really love to mess things up for anything you buy outside the EU...

But hey if you need help finding a VH-INJ lemmie know okay?
As I happen to know where a few are still being sold :cool:

It was a great pleasure for me to sell this model to GOLD LEADER as I was 100% sure that it will have a beautiful new "home base" :)

This model is really a beauty and so I bought 2 of them when it came out...

Normally I do this with all B747's which are special for me... one in the IF200 version, the other in the JCWINGs version ;)

Both manufactures have their pro and con's and therefore this makes sence for me :D

Again I only could recommend highly GOLD LEADER and hope that this nice collection will continue to grow... :)

@AussieJets
Anything for an old friend, if I were an admin I would of fixed it myself :)
Yet I don't know what exactly broke it, but I knew it was fixable to some certain point :cool:
And it's Willem btw, yer fine otherwise hah xD :D

@StillAir
Yeah this is quite the beauty to have man! :envy: Many many thanks for your help and support with this one, it really feels great to have this masterpiece within my fleet of Queens :cool: :envy:

B747's 4 Life,it's the best aircraft of all time, 50 years of experience and they are still flying the 8i's will most certainly be around for an other 30+ years, left alone the NASA/SOFIA B747SP-21's are going to remain in service to 2034 even being, just proving how well the design of the B747 truly is, as Joe Stutter the father of the B747 once said, the Boeing 747 was designed to last, a hard fact right there.

Aussiejets 04-15-2019 06:23 AM

Re: Ansett's B747-312 Sydney 2000 01, VH-INJ is He
 
Thanks Gold Leader. This model is a gem and also Ansett's last livery is known as the "Starmark livery" which incorporates the Southern Cross as you have pointed out. And I agree with you about Joe Sutter. What a legend! I have been watching as many documentaries as I can about the 707 and the development of the 747 and while Boeing took a big gamble with the 707, the 747 soon after and that risk to was enormous to Boeing

Gold Leader 04-16-2019 09:22 PM

Re: Ansett's B747-312 Sydney 2000 01, VH-INJ is He
 
Yeah that exactly man :)
Next week VH-EBU from JC Wings is added to my fleet of Boeing 747's fora total of 29, and I think I found way to add 8 more in my main display after hitting 32, as I can add in 4 glass planks in the left & right part of the display fora total 8 extra B747.s having a total of 40, this gives me more options :envy: More Queens is never a bad thing :cool:

Yeah that is a must have indeed, but I just have other priorities for now.

Next is the JC Wings QF B747-338 VH-EBU "City of Warnambool" "Nalanji Dreaming" tomorrow that will be a fun photo shoot to do :cool:
