Default Wanted. 1/100 boac 747

looking for anyone who might have one of these for sale. can order 1 from westway, but seeing if anyone might have one a bit cheaper! doesn't necessarily have to have a original box. so long as its in good condition.
send a PM if you have one! thanks.

Sorry mate, I thought you did. I've heard rumours that Doug may be calling it a day, so get that order in soon! As you know, he made my one, and I'm well pleased with it. Hopefully, you can sort one out.

Neil.

you were probably both thinking of the WESTWAY 707 I have!! got it off ebay slightly the worse for wear. and doug restored it!!





a new boac 747 is £329.00 gbp from doug. but I have toyed with getting him to strip my space models 747-400 LANDOR ! for just over half that price. but they did not fly the 400. then again they never flew the CONCORDE, SST + VC7/V1000 I have!!

this is my SPACEMODELS LANDOR 747. starting to show its age a bit. to strip and redo a 1/100 model costs between £175 + £200 depending on livery.





I may even be persuaded to sell it for right price. has no original box, and 1 engine fan blade is missing. should be able to get one from doug!

Thats the classiest BA livery IMO. Wouldn't look quite right in the classic BOAC livery, BUT, it's your model to do with as you wish of course.

great model! but way too big for me atm. 1/100 max for now. I could get this 1/144 version for £200 LESS than westway. overseas shipping + customs would be around £50-60. half the price.

I also thought you already had a 1/100 Verkuyl BOAC 747-100? I was envious of this beauty

err yes. but sadly had to sell it. plus livery was wrong. not enough windows and door placements were off. plus it weighed 3.5 kilos and one piece. so sold it with intent to replace with a lighter resin model, but none have come up so far.

Thought that you had announced that due to personal and health issues, you were selling all your large models Robert? I know you have already sold a lot.
Have circumstances changed and you're now trying to get them all back again?

no Adrian. I said I was selling all my 1/200 boac models, (38) and maybe my corgi ones. but DEFO KEEPING ALL my large scale ones. only have ARD200 BOAC 747 left, which I am keeping. collecting mostly military now, and the odd 200 scale british release, and big scale models that I have not got. yes I do have arthritis in my knees, but with chiropractic and physio treatment it has helped but it will only get worse.
