Re: Gemini 1:200 May 2017 Hints

Hoping #3 is a classic AA. A 727-23 or 223 with lightning bolt. I'd settle for the 1968 Patriot stripes though...

Re: Photos-JCW- Pan Am Boeing 747-8

Yeah -- I get it. It was an anomaly. There were several variations/tests going on with the blue stripe and font during the 70s and 80s. But to do a one-off retro that's not representative of the...

Re: Inflight200 Mexicana DC10-15 XA-MEX "Iztaccihuatl"

The tires are way too fat for a -10 or -15 model. The -30 and -40 had much larger tires than the domestic versions. If IF200 would just use the L1011 tires on the DC10-10, it would be much more...

Re: Jfox 200 United DC-10-10

My biggest complaint about the -10 series adaptation of this mold is not the incorrect wing length for this -10 series, but the larger -30/40 series main and nosegear tires. The DC10-10 had...

Re: Ac 200 707-100!

The photo on EZ Toys of the WA 707-139 appears to depict the wing of the 720/720B and 707-120B. The 707-120 (139) wing did not have the inner glove extension, and the root met the fuselage lower. It...

Re: Ac 200 707-100!

Well, they would be able to use the 720/720B wing mold, since the wing planform is the same as the 707-120B. The 707-120B, however, had three turbocompressors on engines 1,2,3, vs only two for the...

Re: Herpa Wings Boeing 707 Intercontinental Demo Aircraft HE557597

Yes the blatant use of the -320B wing (minus the rounded wingtips) on the Inflight -320/-420 was a complete slap in the face, I must agree.

Re: Inflight Eastern L1011 Landed

Just before the paint was scraped off...
