Not for my collection, but the more 747's released the better!

Wow! Thanks for the heads up. Finally my SAA ‘Springbok’ family will be complete. just annoying Inflight couldn’t release one of their two 747-300’s with a polished belly. Really annoying and a missed opportunity.

Yeah I very much can agree on that the Springbok Livery from 1984 to 1997 would be nice the massive Springbok art on the orange tailfin, this on a B747-344 with a Polished belly would be tha Bomb, even tho I remember SAA B747-444's having these scheme for a short period as well that too would be very welcoming, it's why I held off fo ra B747-344 with Springbok Livery:

Yeah bandit rocked the most alright but I am So Happy Gemini 200 is doing the Bandit Livery with the polished belly for their SAA B747-444 Sporting Springbok Livery 01!

Also hope they don't do the same as this mirrored picture shows rofl SAA has to be on this side and SAL on the other side xD

This is a good thing then I can add the SAA_B747-344 with the Pratt & Whitney JT9D's as well also sporting the Springbok Livery but with the white belly, then my SAA Collection will be complete with all 6 variants.
Which will be ZS-SAU "Kaapstad" sporting Springbok Livery 02:

This SAA B747-344 shows the SAA lettering on the correct side.

The display is getting 16 custom made glass planks so I can add 16 new B747's my new SAA's have already been chosen perfect


For those wondering the Registration of the SAA-B747-444

Boeing 747-444
South African Airways "Springbok Livery 01 1989-1992"
ZS-SAZ "Imonti"
Scale 1:200
Gemini Jets 200

Great news. Unfortunately it will probably have the same incorrect bright day-glo orange tail like has spoiled all of Inflight's latest B747 SAA releases.

If only Inflight would contact Aeroclassics as they got the orange colour right with their SAA B707 releases

Most likely Gemini Jets has their own paint palettes as JC-Wings does alike, yet I too found IF 200's paints a tad darker, but that never really bothered me, no model is perfect or that part
I'm too old to be so pesky of such small things.

Wow, what an excellent release. Been waiting for the classic Springbok 744 for an age! Nice release after the rugby world cup champions Bokke!

The first SAA Boeing 747-444 (ZS-SAV "Durban") was delivered on Sunday January 20th 1991. I was among the crowd that saw it first land in Johannesburg South Africa.
