Default 1/16 747 cutaway Singapore airlines w wheels!

I just cannot believe this 14.5 footer really existed in 1984. I wonder where it is today.

Now that is amazing. Probably stored away in some airline warehouse in Singapore as I doubt many would be able to fit that inside their homes there.

I'm sure Swissair, Cathay Pacific, KLM, Saudia and Qantas all received a similar model from Boeing.

I believe this model was later moved to the Singapore Science Center. I remember seeing it - and spending quite a lot of time being enamored by it - when I visited SIngapore, probably early 90s. I am pretty sure I have a picture of it too, somewhere.

That's an amazing model! I've often wondered what happens to these models used in movies and TV.

Tried to steal it but failed - you can see why!!

The holy grail of models!!!

The subject model is a 747-300 with gears while the model shown above is a 747-400 without gears (and looks kind of smaller based on its height and surroundings) so these are 2 different models.

And the subject model looks substantially larger than the 747-400 model shown

It definitely is if you look at the window and picture frame on the wall in comparison. I would say the 744 model is sitting not more than 3 feet off the ground.

Hi All,
I am trying to locate this 747 cutaway model which was donated to SIA by JCB in 1984. Now, JCB wants to make 747-800 scale models cross referring this design and measurements, so I desperate to find this model. I checked with Science center but this was returned back to SIA after the Aviation exhibition sponsored by SIA was closed down for revamp. The people I contacted in SIA also did not know where is this now. If anyone has seen this recently, please let me now about it. I hope this is still in display somewhere in Singapore as SIA has agreed to keep it in public display when this was handed over.
Best Regards,
Arun
