Default Pics: The Happiest Place on Earth

I'm surprised that I was able to find this model. I've been hunting for the Phoenix 1:200 version for a while. The last time I saw one on eBay, it had zinc rot on the wings. Despite that, it still sold for well over $100. I flew on the actual aircraft years ago SEA-SFO. I'm not a fan of Alaska, but I like their Disney-themed aircraft. I'd like to paint the main wheels/hubs & detail the exhaust cones but I don't have the paints to do it & I'm not going to buy any for one tiny project. .

Aircraft and model details:
Boeing 737-490; N791AS
Alaska Airlines
Line No. 2902; Serial No. 28886
First flight 25th June 1997
Delivered to Alaska 10th July 1997
1:100 scale Rise Soon / Ever Rise ASA10B734P04, produced 2007
Special Notes: Painted in "Tinker Bell - Follow Me to Disneyland" livery March 2005; converted to cargo & delivered to ASL Airlines Belgium 30th July 2018 with reg. no. OE-IAM

Excellent model. I don't have her in 100 scale. I have the Gemini 400 and the Skymarks in 130 scale I believe. I have the first Alaska Disney (Mickey Tail) in the Skymarks 100, Aladdin in 100 scale and the second Disney 739 in 100 scale. Longer airplane, so they added Pluto. Again, Love your model and photos.

Thank you for your kind words. I've owned this model before, plus another one. I can't recall which one that was. It was either the Disneyland or Disneyland II livery. I once owned them in 1:200 scale, too. I'd looked for but couldn't find the Aladdin livery. It's so cool!
