Default How's the Aeroclassics 707 mould?

I'm deciding whether or not I should purchase an Aeroclassics Korean Air Cargo 707, but before I do I was hoping I could have some opinions on Aeroclassic's 707 mould. Thanks!

707 Question? Why does Engines 2,3 and 4 have a small intake above the engine intake but engine 1 dosnt, you can kind of see it here?

To the best of my knowledge Boeing only needed the 707-320 to have three turbo-compressors leaving one pylon free of the inlet extension. The 720 only used two on the inboards (look near the wing glove intersection). The even shorter 707-138B retains three.

On American's 707-323's the number one and four engines were the same.

I do not know why but I am sure someone on here knows.

Thanks for the link Marcos,
I'm more of a MD fan, so the 7-0, although it's in my portfolio of drawings, hasn't been studied as closely as other subjects. It does seem AA was the only customer for dual turbo-compressors.
OT'ish: To me, the DW/JX 707-138b's look to be moulded from the narrow-body KC-135 fuselage, not the wider upper and lower 707-320 cross sections. A big deal for
most, but the 138 is a very rare bird.

PS: I will thoroughly check the 707 the guide. The airplane is like a chameleon. So many series of fuselages, fins, wing plans, cargo doors, etc. Looking forward to the read. My favorite of all
the 70's has to be the 138B. A very early "SP" way of design and engineering.
