Default Here's my 40th B747, QANTAS B747SP-38 VH-EAB!

Hey all, well a good 8 years and 8 months ago I decided to start on collecting scale 1:200 diecast metal Model Boeing 747's and now so many years later, the 40th has touched down safely

Since I also have VH-EAA "City of Gold Coast - Tweed", I thought what about VH-EAB "Winton/City of Traraglon"? And that kind of got me looking more in to it, it seems that Winton was used from 1981 to 1990 and in 1991 City of Traraglon became the new name for this airframe, VH-EAB.

Thanks to AussieJets for that info as he showed me via aussieairliners.org.

Anyways it seems that IF200 did a new release last year year around July of 2020, so that was the one I wanted as it had the latest fixes and updates to the B747SP model, the corrected landing gear and yea here it is, Aviation Megastore has one left and that was the one I went along with.


Aircraft type & name:

Boeing 747SP-38
QANTAS Australia Airlines "Spirit of Australia Livery, 1984-2007"
VH-EAB "City of Traraglon"
Scale 1:200
Inflight 200


And here the photo's of the box:






And here the model, it's neatly detailed as well, always loved B747SP's in general.


Also tried new methods to make photos from these angles, glad it worked out:


Also note it's name is "City of Traraglon", this was also the official carrier for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games for the QANTAS Team, even it's Livery is alot like that of Spirit of Australia, this one reads The Australian Airline instead, also an interesting touch:

With this I tried to take pics from dynamic angles as I did with the Delta & KLM B747's I bought before this one:










And here the final display under VH-OEJ "Wunala"

And here all my eight Australian B747's in one photo, I did grab my Ansett's in this one as they too are part of my Australian B747 Fleet:




And here all six QANTAS aircraft stand alone:




As I did with my KLM PH-BFA topic I don't seem to have all QANTAS Liveries left alone I don't even know all the actual names of their liveries besides Ochre Livery & Spirit of Australia Livery then there is The Australian Airl;ine Livery not sure if that was actually named that way, so for that I would need to fill in the blanks I guess.

Anyways after this I will do a topic of all 40 Boeing 747 models that I have collected since when I started 8 years and 4 months ago in November of 2012, the South African Airways B747SP-44 ZS-SPE "Hantam" was the very aircraft I began with, but that is for an other story

As song I choose this one from Midnight Oil:

Midnight Oil - Truganini

Yea VH-INJ I bought from you if memory serves me well

Yet there is a dorsal antenna missing from it, as seen here:



Is there a way to replace those with new ones?
if I look up close I saw that little hole there in the light blue area top center, if you have any tips all are welcome

Hell yea and thanks , space is running thing now lmao, also what's funny I have more B747's than most airline companies, just saving the ones that are dear to me and that are all of these, back in 2012 I started with the SAA B747SP-44 "Hantam" and now 8 years and 4 months later the 40th one arrives with is also a B747SP, kind of ironic in ways I thought

But not over just yet I still have 2 or 3 in mind, not sure what yet, just need sometime to let that all sink in.
