That's the Boeing 720 kit that's just been released by Roden, and it's in the scheme you show in the first link.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards
Kit

I have it in mind one day to do my other Skyvan as Budgie's "tour bus" for their "World Tour of Wales"..... ;)

(For the uninitiated, Budgie was/is a Welsh heavy rock band with slightly less budget than Zep or Maiden, and "The 5-ton Budgie" was one of the many nicknames of the Short's Skyvan.)

By the truly excellent Philip Castle. Check out some of the escort planes: Castle is a serious aircraft enthusiast. I've got a couple of his books and in one there's a picture of his studio, with boxes and boxes of built-up model kits which he uses for reference.

Heh heh heh.  I remember Budgie.  I may even have an LP somewhere...

i'm planning to build this anyway this year so it'll fit right in if this group build gets up and running.





Anyone know where I can get a 1/48 Rock Band... ;D

O Gauge railway figures?
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Maybe a Spackman Turner Overdrive tour bus/plane could appear in this and the 'Following in the footsteps of the P.R.19' theme build?

Nice.  Thanks.  But i've got a 1/48 Mongogram kit to build it from (fits on an LP sleeve better).

I like this one

Just noticed that this decal sheet from S&M has a BEA Whirlwind on it with "tles" added to the BEA. Apparently it appeared in A Hard Day's Night.
