Re: SAAB 90 Scandia

Thats great info. Many thanks.

I've avoided buying from the seller as most are poorly finished and would need remedial work.

Looks like gear doors missing, but could plasticard those.

Re: 707 Mold question

Aeroclassics produced the Boeing 707-400 series years ago, and apparently destroyed the mould to make the 300 series. So no more 400s.
Only option is to buy an old model and re-decal.

Whatever the circumstances, publicity wise, this is not good news for Boeing, just as they are getting 737Max back into service.
