Default DHL 777 Freighter

Another rare exception where I had to go plastic, but no choice as no one has this one in diecast. LIMOX/Hogan did a very nice job with it.. The box alone is worth it, quite big (watch pictured for size comparison).. purchased from a dealer in Austria and model was shipped DHL Parcel post and made it in just over 2 weeks.
I will offer this one as soon as a diecast version is ever in the works...

Limox/hogan has perfectly good 777F moulds with removable gears. Dont know why they didn't just take one of those and just do a repaint instead of having fixed gears on this. Maybe you can look at the gears and compare it to another hogan 777 and see if they are compatible because there's a good chance that they might be. Then you can try to carefully remove the gears on this 777F and try to have a model with gears up/down

Telling from the model box, I assume it’s a corporate model. Many companies prefer pre-mounted parts.

Nice one @Crownvic..

Do you have any recommendations on the plastic model with a clear cockpit...I am particularly looking for 777s and 747s, preferably Freighters.

ha ha no its not.. I only know of Herpa Premiums that are plastic/resing models with clear cockpits. Maybe someone can clarify?? Most model kits too have clear windshields..

There were many normal 747 releases done by hogan and herpa with clear cockpits. They shared the same mold. Still have several in my collection, the pic above showing two of them. There were some cargo releases aswell I believe.

The KLM was a normal herpa release, not premium. The Pan Am is indeed the one stated above.
