Default 1/72 Qantas 747-238B

My latest acquisition from eBay. A Skyland Models 1/72 scale 747-238B VH-EBA, Qantas’s flagship 747-200 named “City of Canberra”, until she was sold off in 1993. Just has to be delivered which will take about a week. Will go nicely in my gallery with my 1/100 scale QF 747-SP38.

That’s a real survivor! I really like the old Skyland models, I do have a few myself. Because of the way they were made, Skylands are often not as durable as the likes of Space or Pacmin etc, so the older ones don’t tend to be that common. My largest Skyland is a 1/50 BEA Comet 4B, almost as large is my 1/72 Finnair DC10.

Hi Jetjack74,

Skyline models are certainly not always easy to come by. A nice find for sure.

Best of luck with your new acquisition.

Ahhh nice!

Skyland Models UK they were the best when it came to 1:72 large scale airliner models, this is a true legend to have man , grats with this addition.

I still wonder how large a B747-8i would be rofl, even though the one I'd love to have @ 1:72 would be a Malaysia B747-4H6 the 9M-MHL, this B747 gave me the most memorable flight of my life, just finding one isn't easy, especially these days.

Don't forget to post the final display setup of this beauty with all your other scale 1:72 models

When I worked for Qantas in the UK, the marketing department up on level 3 had a bunch of these just lying around and they were big, very big. I wonder if they still have them? They were used as displays at Qantas Sales offices like the old Qantas sales office opposite Australia House in the UK and Qantas in Hammersmith where I worked. Nice find you have won on ebay. How much was shipping? More than the model I expect. Well done
