Default The way things used to be...

An oldie arrived to join the collection this week: a Bader model of a BA (Landor) 747-100. I usually don't include box shots, but thought it would be interesting for some of the younger/newer collectors who are only accustomed to metal models and styrofoam/foam packaging.

The handwritten label on the box has the right registration, but the wrong model. G-AWNG was a -100 not a -200.

I only have one other Bader model in my collection - G-BNLA in Chelsea Rose livery, so a quick reunion was in order.

Hope you enjoy the moment of nostalgia.

Sorry it looks awful. But I do appreciate it for what it is and when it was made. So please appreciate the fact that is awfully beautiful....

For years in the late 90's Bader models were the best choice for variety and were ahead of their time.

This is made out of wood? Looks like a fine model to me!

Is Bahrain no longer a good option as a manufacturing location?

Great looking model John.
I recoqnise the box and the way Bader packed their models.
I have a wooden KLM Boeing 747-200B SF SUD myself, made by Bader before IF ever released the same model years later.
To date it is still my only 747 with pitot tubes.

Very nice models, I love your Fokker XVIII ...

Models of this scale can accept Pitot tubes, I added this detail on a custom made B 767-300 and I am very happy with it.

Steel 0,3 mm diameter, you just have to find the drill bit and have the appropriate tool (Dremel).

Thank you for this picture.

Jean Pierre.
