Default presenting The BOEING 757 & 767

I just picked these 2 1/100 BOEING house models off ebay...in the curious orange and brown scheme. I don't think these colors were applied to any real aircraft just the proposal model(s). They are not marked in anyway so not sure who made them, but in this obscure scheme. I don't think there are many options...possibly BOEING Marketing? Pure fantasy in any event. (I've added the stand so unfortunately no clues from that angle.)

Those are MAJOR finds. That scheme goes all the way back to the late 1970's. I know this, as my Mother came home from work one afternoon (Airline) and had a bunch of: postcards, posters, & stickers from the Boeing rep. They were all in these colours.

We still lived in my childhood home, and we moved in 1980. I am nearly positive neither was painted in these colours. Again, excellent find.

Very interesting models you have there. My hunch would be Pacmin ones.

On the subject of rare Boeing models, here are three pictures of a 1/72 Boeing 7N7 which I believe was an original concept which ‘morphed’ into the 757. The model belongs to a friend of mine. Despite my best efforts he refuses to part with it. It has metal landing gear with rubber tyres.

Given the seller is located in Kent, it's a pretty fair chance these were Boeing Marketing Department models. Will you try to locate the missing engine for the 767? It looks as though in one of the eBay photos that they may not have had stands originally; they both have two screw holes. I'd try contacting PacMin to see if they can shed some light on them and perhaps provide you with a replacement engine.

These two (2) models are indeed a nice find.

They might also have been made by Wesco, Space Models if not PacMin.

Found a few links of same top of models shown below:

I have seen BOEING Co photos with this concept model displayed with several other "ideas" that never made it much beyond the marketing departments conference room....it appears they just took a 737 and stuck the 727 rudder/tail assembly (minus the "S" ductwork) on her and called her purrtty!

That is the closest thing to a clue I have on these two...they are accurately shaped but lacking in much detail aside from the fan disks in each engine. The nacelles on the 767 model seems to be a little bigger than the PACMIN versions so I may try to make mold of the number 1. As far as the stand holes go, each one has 2 holes, one of which is chamfered. Don't recall seeing another set of mounting holes designed that way on any of my other models

At least you are familiar with PacMin models to know the difference! They certainly are very cool. Congrats on the purchase!
