Default 1/72 ATLANTIC MODELS BOAC DC-7 and STRATOCRUISER

got these 2 models this week to add to my large scale BOAC fleet. last year I had to pass on a 1/100 boac 747 cutaway on aviationmodelsonline. seller remembered me and contacted me to say he was greatly reducing his large scale collection, and offered me these 2 models, a boac connie, (all in mint cond, + orig. boxes!) and a mint spacemodels landor Tri-Star, no box. just £500 them all plus post. so I have taken these two now, and the other two next month. big big thanks to steve as he just happened to have 3 missing models from my collection!! enjoy the pics. first up an awesome DC-7!!!

























will post stratocruiser pics in next post!!!

Nice models Robert. I have the Atlantic 'BOAC Seven Seas' and its a favourite model of mine. I also have a 1/72 Executive Display Models (Heathrow) BOAC Strat. They both make for beautiful, big models. Atlantic also do a nice 1/72 DC6B too, I have one in Sabena colours.

Neil.

I don't like those too shiny metal props. My 7C has them too, but my Sabena Dc6 has the more usual resin ones, and I much prefer them.
