Westway models but be prepared to pay for it. Cutaways are not cheap models.

That's a VERY specific ask, and you may be a while waiting for that one to come up. Here's one of the best sites to keep an eye on: http://www.aviationmodels-online.com. Plus, join display model aircraft groups on Facebook, where with some research, you should be able to find collectors that specialize in Asian airlines, cutaways, etc. As speedbirdguy says, be prepared to pay big $$$ for one. They're sought after and usually big, so amongst the most expensive of models.

Singapore cutway 747-300 and 400 models are not that rare. they usually come up on ebay every now and then in 1/36 scale and usually sell for around $2500 USD in good condition with stand. you can also look on the websites provided by other members. if you hire westway models to make a 747 from scratch they quoted me few years ago for a 1/50 cutaway for GBP 5500.00. that doesnt including shipping. in 2021 i imagine the costs are much higher. Also im reading alot of negative feedback posts on DAC regarding financial misconduct by westway models where deposits are kept and models are not produced for the buyer and so forth.

Hi Singapore,

You might wish to also contact Atlantic Models & Factory Direct Models, shown below:

https://atlantic-models.com/

https://www.factorydirectmodels.com/

Each is capable of creating a cutaway model for you. But as others have already mentioned, custom cutaway models will be very costly.

Hope that this info helps.

Well that's both sad and surprising, given the long history of Doug Dunn and Westway. Where are these posts on DAC?

There have been so many posts regarding complaints that i cant recall anymore. However i could be wrong about it being on DAC. there is a possibility it mightv been on FB on the large scale models forums on FB. if i find it i will link it.
