Both just landed today . First 1961-1968 colours depicted below. Pay attention: theses models are beautiful ones , but they are very fragile models . Thanks and congratulations to Mr A. Klein .

So… if my collecting friends and friends just curiously interested in my models are touching them and taking them off the shelves, they will fall apart sooner or later?!?

OK this is off-topic but ... would you even allow that? I admire you...
If friends or family want to see my collection I invite them into my "museum room" with a gun in my hand...

Anyway, these liveries are really STUNNING. Especially the HK-724. Think I will get myself this one too...

These two are really the two ones I was waiting for . AV was one of the rare non US 720B launching customer. As I said to Retro Models Collector the wings are easily detached from the fuselage, because they are not welded to the aircraft but simply glued during the assembly of the different parts. I have seen this on some other 720B unfortunately. That said I really wish A Klein to plan the 707s series . Thanks your comment mate anyway. Cheers Denn

PS / if you are interested by the HK -124 , don’t hesitate, the aeroclassic 200 pieces numbers are very very limited .

A true B 707-120 with no compromise, accurate wing and fuselage would be fine ...
So far, nothing on the market.

C‘mon, deephalo, don’t you allow collecting friends to inspect a certain model in their hands???

Back on topic, I‘d like to add that AeroClassics‘ 720 is one fine model. The early Avianca does not appeal to me, though. Congrats for your purchase.

Andrew Klein is fond of AVIANCA Models . I just saw another one coming. Very good news ! Although I thought when the model was already done by a model maker, its competitor had no rights to produce it ???!…. IF200 did the same orange Avianca 720B model a few years ago , but I prefer the AEROCLASSIC 200 ones.

Natural light to me means out doors under the big spot light, the sun not drawing your curtain Denis. However that said, your point is very clear and you are correct, and that is Aero Classics make excellent very limited production runs of any release, and this B720's Avianca release is no different. It's a gem
