Boeing 707-120 Pan American







Well here Goes airliner number 4, all my life I allways loved the 707 in panam colors I can't think of an airliner that looks as beutifull
as the king of all jet airlines the 707. I've chosen the short-tail version, the first passenger version to go into service in 1958 first with Pan american then twa.

Here's a rough breakdown of this EDF foamie jet

Lenght: 72" inches
Wingspan 70" inches
weight 5-6 Pounds
4 65mm EDF's powered by 4 tunrigy 4800 KV brushless motors
4 50Amp speed controllers
4 11.1 Volt 1800-2200 Li-poly Batteries
Servoless retracts
LED navagtion lights

So if you want confirmation that I'm nuts well here it is! Construction will begin in 3-4 days!

I remember seeing a Panam 707 landing at JFK international airport when I was 6 in 1981 from that day I've allways had a love for this jet!

I allways buy a model of any scratch-build it makes it allot easier to see the shape of a plane when you can hold it in your hand.

Nice. I've always like this plane too, and almost all vintage jets. My dad was an aircraft mechanic/electrician in Korea and commercial after. He worked on piston and jets before moving into management. Just on Friday we went out to dinner and I jokingly told him why older turbojets were better than the new turbofans.

1. They smoke like crazy. Which is just cool. It's like airshow smoke but all the time.
2. They're loud so you really understand this is serious business, and everybody knows you're coming.
3. They don't have a lot of power. There's no challenge fling modern jets.

Vintage Pan Am and American Airlines lightning bold scheme are my favorites.

It's not just two of you that think same, i'm with you also. B707, 37-100/200, 27-100/200, DC8 all series and CV880 n 990s are on my list of beautiful early airliners also. Hey make sure you make double lobe crease and wing glove visible on this model or it won't look authentic scale replication, B27, 37, 07, 57 all share same fuselage cross sections. Actually it's same fuselage with different lengths, front and rear ends and wings....

Early short fin variant, hmmm very very interesting pick of subject, not seen this one done before...
