aeroclassicsdirect.com sells directly to the end user John. Once we are sold out, they are gone!!

Still no acknowledgement of the wing join gap? Must be big enough for Andrew to hide in.

That will never happen. We saw it with the Air Canada 727 they put an incorrect (non-existent) registration on. He will never acknowledge a problem or mistake appropriately, always either ignore or find excuses, all while belittling other brands. His excuse for the misprinted registration was "Well, they're too small to see anyway". Why even bother printing the registration then?

There’s always bottomfeeders like AeroClassics….

Probably just a one off model, the photographer probably couldn't be bothered to get another one.
Hopefully the QC people fixed it.

Everyone's talking gap. I'd take one regardless if only the mould would look like a 727.

Hoping for the "bottomfeeders" here..

Ahh yes, latest photo does look more acceptable and more in line with the quality I'd expect.

I'd still buy G-OSRA and G-OSRB if they were ever done by AC. Willing to bet that NG beat them to it though.

It is, indeed. Almost no difference. Some people have a lot of fantasy (and blinkers)…

I would too, but these are super 27's and no-one has as super 27 mould.

A mix of new and old 727-100 releases from AC to compare the gap:

Someone should try to buy that mould off of Dragon.

They just had a 727-200 winglet version I believe. A super 27 can both have/not have winglets, it just has the number 1-3 engines retrofitted with JT8d-217/19 (MD80 engines). That being said, I wonder how hard it would be to dig out the engines on a GJ/DW MD80 and and stick them on 727 model.

Engines is easier, but the chop is certainly doable - did it on a few models already to very satisfying results.


If a swap for the JT8D-2.. is in order, I'd go for a DW M80 donor as the GJ's engines are horrible. The donor 722 also would be a DW.
I wouldn't want to touch an AC 727, too much work to get them to look like a 727.

What did you use to make the cuts? Glue to reattach?

I'm sure I'm missing something.. but.. why not put 70's engines on a short fuse 8 ?

Pylons are different. And Gemini -73s are often on sale at blowout prices

I've done something similar and I used polyurethane construction adhesive. That stuff sticks!

Handsaw sounds fun. I’ve got a mini-mill that I’ve never used, might be worth a shot.

It is!
Cutting diecast stuff isn't a big deal as the material is rather ​soft.

A mini-mill sounds good, might save you some time. The sporty-9 I linked to was cut, filed and sanded all by hand.

Reminds me of the people who converted a TU204-300 into a TU204-100 by cutting it up removing a length, and putting it back together.

Ahh, so that's why I couldn't find your custom projects on the forum, you had another account. They look very nice.
