I love how the seven three's have their aerials under the belly painted red! Just one of the great examples of NG's attention to detail!!

Looking forward to the Icelandair B757. Looks really good. I also hope to see some B738 in SAS colors soon.

Did the United "Friendship One" SP ever operate in normal passenger service carrying those special titles? I think it was just for that special record-breaking flight around the world/charity fund-raiser, which also happened to be in 1988.

The AstroJet looks awesome. Glad I preordered this version. The Saul Bass SP is very tempting too.

Man, NG continues to do their thing! Very impressive to say the least. I would be satisfied with any model in here.

I have never seen that IcelandAir white engines livery before; I honestly kind of like it! Hope NG makes it!

Looks like I'll be getting the American 757 Flagship retrojet for me....will replace the Gemini I got in 1999. Already pre ordered the Gemini 737-800 Astrojet retro, or I would get that one too.

What a model, I hope you enjoy it! The GJ Astrojet is pretty solid so not the biggest loss in the world. Excited to see you get them!

Thanks. I also have the older Gemini 737 retro, but since it's a different tail number, I'm keeping both of them.

No idea, but the story about the charity flight is a good enough reason to get the model.

Definitely! Great article. What an amazing way to raise money, and a brilliant release subject. Nifty little big jet, the SP

Hate to be a rivet counter here guys, cos yes I know little things do get left out and its not a major train crash. In fact there are a few things left out on models that if at all possible,I will just add myself. So usually not a big song and dance,but i did think it was worth mentioning that the anti collision light has been left out on the Seven Eights! Which goes to prove that with rushed production, the usual excellent minute detail is going to get left out! NG please do QC before releasing! I am fully prepared for the backlash now for being another rivet counter! Lol!

I think it was a temporary livery, TF-FIW flew both as Albert Ballin and as Cabo Verde Airlines. Both liveries had the engines and fuselage all white.

Correct, and TF-FIW has been parked since March this year.

Excellent models and accompanying photographs as usual.

Unfortunately, the United 747SP stripe sits too high at the nose. The top of the blue cheatline begins roughly at the centre of the nosecone (not above it). As someone who use to custom decal models I understand why the model has this error. There are three points of contact when placing a cheatline - the nose, the wing and the horizontal stabilizer. The UA 747SP (N140UA) cheatline is incorrectly positioned high at the nose, but positioned correctly at the wing and horizontal stabilizers. If NG had placed the cheat correctly at the nose, the other two positions would have been inaccurate - so, this is the compromise.

The cheatline looks as expected. Exactly as you said, no real other options when the mould has a wrong shaped nose. Too bad as it's an otherwise excellent mould.

Ordered both United SPs, and the Transavia and Icelandair 757's after seeing the photos. If I had a higher budget, probably would have gotten one of the Copas and one of the AA retrojets, too. So I prioritized.

Hoping October has some L-1011's again...with bare metal finish.
