Default Who manufactured BOAC G-AWNA B747-100

I believe Inflight did a 1:200, but can somebody tell me who did the 1:400. Mine has no manufacture markings--so that rules out Gemini for one.

Looks like Aviation 400 released in 2007.

Yes, that was actually repackaged old stock from unsold inventory left over from the first release, which was in 2006 under the BigBird brand. Sadly the font for the BOAC titles were all mucked up on those models, especially the “O” and “C” which are completely the wrong weight, but all of it’s off. The earlier Gemini version is the only one that has the correct font - a vintage model from their earliest days, 1999!

Yep lovely model, lovely mould but stuffed up the printing for BOAC which was a real bummer.

Yes BigBird were the only ones to run that particular model in 2006. However some were left over after that brand crashed and burned and were repackaged as "Aviation400" a year later, and sold again as the factory cleared out old stock.
