Default Everyone...stand and rise for the queen..pt. Ii

Long live the queen.. I just received this beautiful 747 and yes I’ll silence the critics G-VROC was one of a few that was painted with a white fuselage.. in fact Virgin flew 4 different fuselage colors..Sadly the 1:1 version met its demise in 2017 to the scrapper 😔

Gorgeous! Love all the details, even on the underside of the fuselage.

thanks! I have no idea who the manufacturer is, model is resin and it came from a seller in Switzerland who is on facebook. I believe they are made in Indonesia. He has dozens of 1/100 747's and 787's..

Actually upon further review it looks like the same manufacturer as the British 747 I posted last year acquired by ARD under the name Desktop Models.
Same stand and same weight and ARD has the same model in the Star Wars theme... Here are the pics:

Here is the link to the Star Wars version. I personally am not into that one as I think it ruins the plane.

Very nice indeed Russ. Could be an LHS model maybe? A real looker whoever made it.

Thanks! Drats, he has no BA or VS 787s. My checking account is thankful, though!

I stand corrected, stored at Jakarta with a cargo carrier Terra Avia not scrapped although stored at Jakarta isn't the best news..
