Default 707-100, the great forgotten

Sorely missed in 1/400 and also in 1/200, for when an accurate replica of this wonderful early jet?

If someone makes it, I think it would be a best seller.

It has been said that it has few versions but it's not entirely true, although in the early short tail & no ventral fin version has about 7 liveries (Boeing House, Pan American, American, TWA, Continental delivery cs, Continental Thunderbird, Braniff "-220"), there are various possible versions with the 100b variant, also the turbojet with large tail & ventral fin offers some others versions.

In addition I think that an accurate 707-300/-400 in 1/400 with actual standards would be very great.

Regards,

Albert

I agree with you on this. Back in 2017 I had the 707-120 at number 2 on the top missing list and the Boeing 720 turbojet at number 4:

A really important series of jets with several different easily made versions with short tailfins, ventral fins etc.

An early MATS VC-137 example would also be welcome!
