Default Aeroclassics - Pan Am Boeing 707 N728PA Beatles 19

Just watched a documentary on the Beatles breaking the US market in 1964, the footage included their concert tour flight from the UK to the US, Boeing 707-321 N728PA, originally named "Clipper Peerless", renamed "Clipper Beatles" for the tour, as seen in the film, what chance Aeroclassics releasing the model, I assume copyright may be an issue?

Unless it's a BlueBox release next to nil chance of release.

Thanks for the reply, understood, what about under the brand "Pan Am Models"? A classic moment in time complimented by a classics airframe?

Add a limited card with the history, surely a winner?

Been away from the hobby too long maybe, but is there now a decent mould to do this airframe on? The only one I'm aware of is the old and 100% outdated Aeroclassics.

All these special band liveries have been discussed like the Led Zeppelin 720 and others... too fraught with perils of litigation.

...but Shanny that didn't stop others in the past from being released like all those Cathay birds among others!

Aside from its temporary rebrand, it’s a standard Pan Am 707. I think it would have a lot of appeal as a release for Pan Am collectors and music buffs alike just for the history alone. I don’t see any reason why N728PA could not be released, but it may have to be Clipper Peerless. For what it’s worth, N704PA (Clipper Defiance) would be equally great. That’s the plane The Beatles arrived in America for the first time on. Also... I want George’s BEA bag.

He is correct there is no operational turbojet 707 available in 400 scale so even if this were a possibility there's nothing to do it on. Aeroclassics only has the turbofan 707-320B/C with the modified wing form.

We really could do with a new 707-320 and 420 mould but it requires a new wing and engines.
