You are welcome my friend.

They are very nice with this B 707-338 C, note the hat-rack door behind the wing.

I just love these passenger stairs by Herpa but i wish they also offered different stairs for other airlines, such as KLM or BA.. i'm looking for passenger stairs for my KLM DC-4 and L-1049 Super Constellation..

The KLM stair is included in the JCWs KLM GSE Set 4.

More GSE is painfully needed in both 1/400 and 1/200 scales. These look great.

In one word Tom. Yes. Perhaps better illustrated by photo's
@ Surinam Air 747 their is a launch customer of every product. I am sure this release is just the beginning. DC3's are out as per first photo engine 1 gets in the way






DC4's work








Constellations work




Electra's work






Comet's work











Boeing 707-100's suit





as do Boeing 707-300 series










I am quite sure this release is just the beginning of Herpa's historical air stairs.

One other thing I just noticed. Fine tuning is required the height is adjustable. One of the set is a little shorter than the other. Perhaps it is recommended you purchase a minimum of two sets to suit your requirements but that's only a suggestion.

Sorry Tom,


Everything I posted above was period related that the Qantas livery matched the stand. To rightfully answer your question yes. And to be honest air stairs would have been last on the budget to be repainted
