Very nice catch Steve! Did Qantas had a simular 95 logo on their planes 5 years ago?

It's a 747-406. Great model.

As an aside, when I got mine I thought they screwed up and left off the number one engine GE logo. After seeing pics of the real deal, it apparently flew that way for awhile.

Hi Tom,


Qantas did 75th Anniversary logos (decals) on all the fleet with two special 747's artworks but no 95th.

Thank you snowghost for Boeing's KLM customer number 06 and actually the GE logo missing on engine one was the first thing I noticed. After a quick check on Google there was no issue.

Normally I post the box art work of new models I receive (even though it's an old release). So I will do so now. Also, recently I purchased 10 white small display stands and 10 white medium JCW stands. The model's flight profile seems much better. Here a couple of pictures of the KLM 747-406 on the new stand

Talking Re: KLM 95 years 747-400

Beautiful model

It was not easy to part from it, but I have to do so due to the actual economic situation in the Aviation Industry

Nevertheless I am very happy that it made a safe trip to Down-Under to its new home base

And by the way, I also loved that little detail with the corrct missing engine logo...

Next JCW B747, which is ready for departure from FRA, is the -300 JAL "Reso'cha" (see at my actual eBay auctions - or fro DAC members -10% off).

Same as for the KLM release, I like this one better than the IF200 Version, but as I said before I collect more B747's from IF200 and so this beauty has to leave…

And no it's a B747-406M not a B7457-406, this is a Combi actually, if it were a B747-406 like PH-BFN as in the video I posted, then there would be no Side Cargo Door in it for the Combi compartment in the left rear side

PH-BFH is the same as PH-BFT & PH-BFV and many others that were in service of KLM's fleet.

B747 Combi's were very loved due to their multi purpose functions as passenger aircraft & freighter in one.
These will be greatly missed now that PH-BFT, BFV & BFW have left their service time., I am still shattered by it as many other KLM B747 fans are. even the ones that flew them.

B747's were made to last easily for 50 years it was the success in the design, not many new gen aircraft could do that left alone the durability of the B747 it's self, the payloads the B747's could take left alone the incredible short take off & landing capabilities even make their Dreamliners look bad xD

Take this video taken by my friend Rudi Van Goch from Rotterdam Airport of a KLM B747-406 the PH-BFN "City of Narobi" (a normal KLM B747-406 not a Combi) taking off and comparing that to the KLM B787-906 the PH-BHC "Sunflower / Zonnebloem", the take off distance of the KLM Jumbo is also half as short as that of the KLM Dreamliner.


But yea, I too have this model and I know of of the people that operated it, flew it as well, my Boeing 747 Community is very resourceful when it comes to such things

Here a more detailed in depth view of the KLM B747-406M (Combi) the PH-BFH "City of Hong Kong" can be seen here:
https://www.planespotters.net/airfra...irlines/38p6gr

Anyways here's my PH-BFH that I have on display with PH-BUW a KLM B747-306M also their last actual B747-300 series:

Boeing 747-406M
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines "KLM 95 Years Livery 2014"
PH-BFH "City of Hong Kong"
Scale 1:200
JC Wings
------------------------------------
Boeing 747-306M
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines "Sky Blue Livery 1976-1993 (1982-1993 for KLM B747-300's)"
PH-BUW "Leonardo Da Vinci"
Scale 1:200
ARD Models UK



The skies will be boring without PAX versions of the B747, yea there is the B747-8i but for me the traditional B747-100, 200, SP, 300 & B747-400 did it all really, especially the B747-400 gave me my best memories ever the Malaysia B747-4H6 Combi the 9M-MHL (Malaysia's first B747-400 series), the KLM's I flew as passenger with were PH-BUA (World's first operational B747-200B & KLM's first B747, even being a 200 series) & PH-BUU (KLM's first real B747-300 series), only reason I bought PH-BUW was that the PH-BUU was sold out and the BUW had the correct livery PH-BUU had back in 1985 & 1986, so it didn't really matter that much, the original flight ticket & KLM Memory card game can be seen in the background and a Schiphol postcard with PH-BUA on it and some others.
