That was a typo in the thread title. Should read 757-2G4 Specially modified 757-200 for the USAF as a VC-32A.

Congrats on your purchase! I was tempted placing an order for the so-called “Air Force Two” to go with my 707 and 747 aircraft but finally I went for Eastern Air Lines. Looks great!

Thanks buddy. I am sure there will be more VC-32A SAM's. I had no idea the USAF had so many.

Here is just a few more shot's showing the nice tight fit of the gear up doors. Shame Inflight200 does not provide magnets on their gear up nose doors.

Great arrival, and great detail pictures. I love civilian birds in military roles. Might just have to get this one. Thanks for positing.

The information about the app on the back of the box is interesting. Did anyone download it yet?

I did when it was announced. A great feature which requires a lot of updates! Very informative, which is why I spent the time shearing the back of the box.

Btw, I would still recommend getting the hogan C-32A for everyone also.

Gorgeous model! Congrats!

I'm probably in the minority, but I'm hoping the livery doesn't change for the new AF1.

Actually, I think you are NOT. At least, I am with you, so +1 for continuing with the Kennedy era design!

Nice AF2, especially with all those antennaes. Looking at the engines, those have got to be the best effort with fan blades since Gemini's first 1/200 models.

This is a lovely model. Beats the Gemini 757's other than their first releases over 10 years ago.
