Here are a few pics of them. I also have 1/72 KLM L1049C in KLM delivery colors. Funny story about the 7 Seas. I was maybe 5 or 6 and my dad who worked for KLM brought home 2 of them, brand new in box.

I thought for sure I'd get one, but he traded it to a neighbor for 4th of July fireworks. For years it was on my dad's dresser and no amount of cajoling or begging would make him part with it.

Then one day out of the blue, after I'd been married for years, he gave it to me. I was shocked and thought maybe he knew he wasn't going to be around or something. But no, he decided that I'd waited long enuf. But fireworks, seriously???

As an aside, never had the sideways pictures until today. But when clicked on should have correct orientation.
