Default EVERYONE STAND...The Queen Has Entered The Room...

I am scheduled to fly the BA queen in January so I had to have this one. I was inspired by a small glimpse of a photo posted by DACer robertjon5 on the recent Heathrow show thread in the Airliner Shows and Convention section of this forum. Once I spotted the photo, I immediately contacted my friend Paul at Aviation Retail Direct (ARD who is in that referenced pic) and told him I had to have it.
Paul was so cooperative and was very instrumental in seeing it thru and I cant thank him enough for the great service and the great price too! Kudos to ARD!

This model was made exclusive for ARD. It is fiberglass 1/100 and has all the details like windshield wipers, VHF antennas, Satellite dish, overhead corroguard details (photo has a reflection not a scratch) right down to the wingtip lights. Very rarely seen on non wood 1/100 scale models

Lets all HAIL AND BOW TO THE QUEEN!.....I Hope Everyone Enjoys...

The Queen looks lovely. However, she seems to be headed in all directions
Nice model

She is lovely Russ. The 747 will ALWAYS be my favourite.

Very nice indeed Russ. It’s almost as good looking as my 1/100 BA A380 Its those small details you highlight that really make the model, and as you rightly say they’re not often seen on models such as yours. Nice buy!

Thanks for posting the pics! Nice detailed model and glad your friends on the other side helped get it in your hands!

One reason I don't really care for PACMIN is the lack of this detail!

Lovely model, Russell.

I spent NYE in London and it's always so nice flying in/out of LHR and seeing so many BA 747s in one place!

Missed this thread earlier. Fantastic model. 1/100 models require a lot of space. I have a Landor and BOAC 747 in that scale, but this eclipses both. Nice acquisition!

Correct Homer,

However, from what I can see from last sighting she was heading South

I was also going to say congratulations on your new addition too, and so, now I will. Congrats CV. Nothing small about this one either including all the lovely details or the price tag I can see on the stand 395.00 UK Pounds Sterling! Crickey!

Thank you everyone for the kind comments. I am still amazed at the size difference between the A380 and the 744!
