Default Boredom Purchase ... 727-100

As I mentioned on the General Squawk section under thread titled “normalcy in your area” I’m making boredom purchases just to kill this idle time.. 8 in the last 2 weeks.. I will post a few of the unusual ones as they come in.. first up is this JFox 727-100. This model was announced several months ago and I had absolutely no interest.. but all it takes is a TV documentary about the late Malcomb Forbes with a few video shots of the real thing and I was done!
J Fox got the gold color 90% right on the gold metallic just a shade darker would have been perfect ..enjoy!

Nice model would be nice to see a Convair to go with it. Regulars at London Airport.

Those connections we have to our models run deeeeep.

When this one first showed up on a retailer’s website, my eyes read “Inflight 727-100 New Tooling”. Mine eyes were incorrect.

Nice model with an unusual color scheme. Must be a limited release.

The details of the thrust reversers are great ...

Nice, unique livery! Is it just the photo or is the nose blunt on your copy?

Malcom Forbes also painted his yacht, The Highlander, green, his favorite color, the color of money...

And as you can see, his helicopter livery matched his jet.

Russ, this pic of the nose area looks much better than the first up close nose picture you posted!
