Thank you! The wingtip antennas do look like separate parts, don't they? They're a completely different colour and there appears to be a tiny gap between them and the edge of the wing. And this is the model I'm leaning towards vs. the delivery livery (though that's so iconic).

Thanks again, for posting the photos. Of course, GJ Pan Am 747 models on the secondary market are about $80 more than IF200. Another thing I prefer about GJ is they have removable landing gear.

So do I, and the only reason for me personally is just because all the wheels then touch the ground correctly. Especially the 747 models with glued-on wheels too often have one landing gear that is glued on a little bit crooked, so that some wheels do not touch the ground properly.
For 747s, I also think that one should provide a nose wheel for "in flight" as well as for "on ground" in all circumstances. Except for two models, all my jumbos are currently parked with their noses too high.

I want both.

The first one for the space I currently keep free in my display cabinet for 1970s airplanes, and the billboard version for the 1980s. As for the "delivery" version, I am quietly hoping for a n733pa "Clipper Young America". Maybe Gemini Jets is reading now ...

I wish I could afford both, but I'm limited on both funds and display space!

If you want Clipper Young America, IF200 produced it in 2007, but it'd probably be difficult to find these days.

and this being one of the older GJ200 models it also comes with jeweled trailing edge Landing lights in the main waings, instead of being painted, this is when GJ200 was a great alternative over JC Wings as both had this cool little extra.

And hey Billboard Livery looks alright on the B747-121, yet it looks best on the B747SP=-21 imo

Here my PAA's

PAA B747-121 N134PA "Clipper Flying Cloud"
PAA B737SP-21 N538PA "Clipper Princess Grace"
