Default Pacmin TCA 727 Sales Proposal Concept

Once in a while, the Airline Model Gods just smile and I find a real gem! This is a pre-production circa 1962 Boeing sales proposal concept model, pitched at Trans-Canada Airlines. Made by Pacmin, the scale is 1:60 and it has faded decals but otherwise nearly mint. Only two are known to exist. The other specimen is in the Montreal Aviation Museum. TCA did not end up buy 727s, so the model sales prop was for naught, but TCA became Air Canada in 1965, and Air Canada eventually ended up several 27s, around 35 I think, starting in 1970. So, this model disappeared into someone's home and turned up in an estate sale almost 60 years later. Now she is making new old friends with my TCA fleet. This model was so heavy I thought it was aluminum, but it was just a supra heavy duty resin Pacific Miniatures used back in the day. If you look at the tail and the middle engine, you can see this model was based on sketches from Boeing, as the real ones looked just a little different. A wonderful "what if" model.

Wow, what a find! I suspect that’s going to be a very long term ‘keeper’ for you
