Default My KLM Early 60s Fleet

The old diagonal stripes livery. Very classic.

Subtle distinction, but KLM's Electras had the rounded props. The Hobby Master gets it right.

Very nice classics! Seems you also have or had the corgi 1:144 viscount, hence the corgi KLM stairs; ) Hope to see more classics in this livery in the future like the DC4/6 and of course the DC7. Hope someone will bring us a nice DC7 mold again, imo one of the greatest propliner.

Love the prop and jet mixture. Interesting time in aviation history.
I do wish someone would take over Hobbymasters DC-4, DC-6, DC-7C, and B-337 molds since they dropped out of the airliner business.

Very neat collection. When KLM introduced this beautiful old diagonal stripes livery and when they retired their DC-8s

A nice collection. Have the old Western Model Viscount & their original Electra, which also has the rounded props.

Always good to see collectors with a liking for the older stuff.

PS. I did do a DIY DC-7F in this scheme...
