I like the seamless wing join, but the tail & #2 engine are angled back far too much.

Nice livery! Would go good with the DC-3s made years ago and the CV-340 made.

Wasn't the complaint about #2 engine and the angle of the tail raised about another manufacturer within the last two years in a comparitive thread?

Another freaking tease of a model that is impossible to find in the US except on EBAY, and only for a price that could buy about five standards models.

I like this livery though!

Yes, first thing that caught my eye ... #2 engine intake angled skyward (al la AC 722), tail chord looks suspect (too narrow) and horizontal stabs located too far back. Unconvincing.

Yep, this one's got the AeroClassics disease ... but at least it doesn't have a fat arse.

It seems the 727 presents a particular challenge to model manufacturers for some reason (?)

How hard can it be to get it right?

Dragon Wings is still the best in 1/400 scale but the new GJ 721 mould looks promising from the one photo I've seen (although I'll reserve judgment until I see photos from different angles).
