Default Ansett 727-277 VH-RMP

XX2305 is the model number.

We all know the Herpa Premiums models are superbly detailed models which are without question the best plastic models ever made.

I cant believe just how much details have improved in the last few years of collecting alone. This is my most highly detailed diecast model that I own, and I have a few. The Commonwealth Games Logo Brisbane October 1982 appears on this aircraft as Ansett was awarded official domestic carriage, while Qantas wore this logo on their aircraft as they where awarded official carrier for international carriage.


If there is one model you need to get this year. This should be it. Hopefully European Collector's copy is on the way. In the words of others that offer good advise "do yourself a favour" and get one. XX2313 VH-RMZ is also on the box and coming without the Brisbane 1982 Commonwealth Games logo.


Here is XX2305 so beautifully detailed I hope I have captured it well enough. A JC Wings masterpiece. Thank you JC Wings. Can you Do TAA 727-200 next please!

I photographed a copy of this release a few weeks ago. Hands down, it is a superb model from Johan and company.

Would be interesting to see a comparison with its JETX version (I believe that it was done from them)

Superb 727 indeed, what a beautiful model. Hope many more will follow. For me a Lufthansa would be great, there has not been one for a long long time. Thank you Steve for your great pics, allways a joy to watch.

Brilliant model. So much so that I almost clicked the "buy" button on ARD. But I must remain within my collecting criteria.

Hello martin.

The JET X model is excellent too, it has the vortex generators on the vertical fin, this detail is absent on the JC Wings product.

Slightly different, the two models are equally good.
None of my AF models had emergency escape markings on the wings they were added with decals.

It is great to see accurate models of these iconic aircraft.

We need a talented and serious manufacturer to make an accurate B 707-120, a true one, preferably the early version, short fin, no ventral fin, old engines and without the compromises or shortcuts we have seen on recent models.

Jean Pierre.

Yes it is JP and yes we do JP. Hopefully someone can do a variety of variants of 707's with gear up options too.

Thank you EC and yes the 727 with it's clean wings was not only a great looking aircraft, it was a little pocket rocket! Funny how the 737 has all the variants and still in production today and Boeing flicked off the 727 in favour of the 757 replacement. As I said, hopefully your copy is on it's way to you It's a great model you will love.

Yes it was, as JP has said the JetX is very very good. I also remember the JETX Ansett 727-277 commanding very high prices on ebay like AUD 300.00/400.00 upto AUD500.00.


My JETX copy never had fuel dump outlets on it's wing tips either like this release. The vents on the bottom of the tool 3D printing has gone to another level at JCW. (I believe these are brand new wings. Looks like at one stage JCW where looking at jewel landing lights in the wings and was going to have plastic covers, like the JETX copy pictured above). Also the JETX has no red Anti collision beacon to the top is was painted on. Also on the double hinged tail rudder you will see a silver stripe down it's length and outer rudders. These are the hinges! I have included a couple of pics. Also this copy JCW comes with a lovely display stand. A huge bonus!


VH-RMW is JETX






JETX copy below. Look at landing light covers please. Also the four vents near display hole. 3D printing is now better






JETX model below Anti collision beacon light is painted on






The Ansett Delta scheme models released so far are

The 727 has to be the the coolest airline design ever, kind of like the F104 of airliners.
People are always making requests for flap down models, this would be my choice,
Great pics as always Steve.
