Default Cute little vintage PacMin...

I know it’s a 1:200 scale but I always loved this livery on the ANA 747-400D. Also the extra detail is amazing for this model. Take a peak....

Now that’s VERY nice! I’d no idea that Pacmin made these ANA ‘whale’ models in 1/200. Nice find.

They also made them in 1/144, and they have more detail (I have a 1/144 version).

Thanks Neil, yeah it’s a little gem. I was never a fan of the ANA models but couldn’t complain at the price I paid. I’m curious what they originally retailed at.

Maybe these links will be of use. Sadly my Japanese is non existent! Henry Tenby’s link is worth looking at too

Very beautiful model. I have the same model but on a 1: 100 scale.
At the time of launching the theme, I picked up some curiosities.

THE BLUES WHALES FROM ALL NIPON

In under forty years the airline flew its 500 milionth passenger , and to celebrate the passing of the milestone on 12 August 1992, ANA- All Nipon Airways- placed adverts in several Japanese newspapers for a design competition to paint a special scheme for a Boeing 747-400.

The winning entry, from over twenty thousand submitted, was based on a whale and was designed by a boy with twelve years old " Yukie Ogaki" .
Boeing painted the whale design , which used twelve colors and four hundred gallons of paint, and the aircraft was christened MARINE JUMBO.

The aircraft a 569 seat Boeing 747-400 JA-8963, arrived at Tokyo- Haneda Airport from Seattle on 2 September 1993. Such was the poplularity of the aircraft, with passengers and at airports ,that it was decided to paint a Boeing 767-300- JA-8579- to serve domestic airports ,that were unable to accept the 747.

Again delivered from Seattle, to Tokyo- Haneda Airport- MARINE JUMBO JUNIOR- arrived on 4 December 1993.
Both aircraft had a dedicated maintenance team to keep the aircraft fully serviceable and the paintwork tidy.

Although they were origininally intented to return to normal ANA colours after one year, their popularity and the earthquake in January 1995, brought a reprieve for both aircraft . Between them, 1.700.000 passengers were flow by the time MARINE JUMBO JUNIOR stepped down on 22 May 1995, and MARINE JUMBO completed its duties on 31 May 1995.

Interesting no ?
