Default Air Gabon 747-200 Hasegawa

Hasegawa kit build using the ANA 747SR kit from the 1980's. Decals used are from Flightpath and windows/details are from 26Decals.

Fun build, colorful livery, what more could you want? And look, it even has leading edge lights

Very unique livery yea, this is an Air Gabon B747-2Q2B(M) was built in 1978. which was also used from 1978 to 2006 and scrapped in 2006.

More info of this aircraft can be found here:
https://www.planespotters.net/airfra...r-gabon/r1v66r
Only 27.8 years this one, quite the average age.
Also note this one has General Electric CF6-50E2's, if this was a die cast metal model heck I'd even see it as one with added weathering

Very neatly built though, many thanks for sharing, every B747 is a welcome one!

Great job on the Air Gabon, I flew this aircraft long time ago between CDG and LBV.

Absolutely fantastic work!


I remember seeing the Air Gabon at Gatwick back in the day and the Air Afrique is great to see to.
