Default EL AL 747-400 1/100 !!! Old livery !!!

Hi Everyone,

The time has come....
Finally I have found my Jumbo in 1/100 !!!
It's a beautiful 747-400 in the previous livery. 4X-ELA.
It was purpose built for EL AL by a french company in 1993 and was passed on ever since. I found it via a great 1/100 scale collector at LHR's enthusiasts fair who included with the decent price of £150 a whole load more..... ( these additions have put my collection up to 390 !)




Here is the 747-400 with it's older sister from 1984 !


Some of the many item's included in the price ; Serving China from the early 1980's, EL AL cargo coasters, An EL AL Cargo 747 1/600, A 737-200 postcard, Business Class Amenity kit......

Well done. It's always great to get that model that you've been chasing for a long time.

I've got one or two Airbuses by them. I think that Milos may tell you that they're not quite up to Pacmin, and I think that would be a fair comment. I have some Airbus models by Graphideco, and I quite like them, and I would not hesitate to buy further models by them.

I like Graphideco because a) they deal with collectors, b) they aren't too expensive and c) they are quite quick. say 4 weeks or so from order.

However, some comments. The engine attachment to the wing is sometimes poor that you can see light through the join. And, they sometimes have too much clear coat gloss.

They ship from France and are friendly in their emails.

See the Simpsons for an interesting model : Maquettes d'avions

Guys thanks for the info, I just thought it would be nice to have the Qantas Formula One scheme. But I don't want to get that if the quality isn't there. Again Thanks!

Don't write them off completely. I have an Emirates 1/100 A330 by them and I'm more than happy with it......and I'm quite 'picky'

LightlinePilgrimages....very nice models and collection.

Milos-Very nice set of models......ALL of them. I have been watching the many posts of your collection for a while now and finally decided to comment on it. You have a world class collection. Pleasure to see the photos of so many rare models in one frame.

I have some El Al models...here are a few. The Britannia is a 1/72 scale metal Westway model with replacement props and base. Love the old El Al livery.

I very much second that. I especially like the Il96 and Il14. Milos, is the Il14 a Russian model? And I'm sure I can see an Interflug 62 in there.

A very nice model. I quite like that EL AL scheme, and you don't see that many.
