  1. British Airtours Boeing 707-420 pics by Graeme H
  2. A month of hard work and 'Foxtrot Oscar' is ready. OOB Airfix build with Authentic Airliners decals. The usual old Airfix woes, but a satisfying result after all.
  3. How close are the Boeing line of fuselages? mainly the 707 and 737. I heard somewhere they are they same aside from length. Are windows and doors the same size? I have a strange idea to build a 737-800 using a 707 and 737-200 for parts. I know Welsh makes the P-8A which is an 800 series, but I'm looking at cost and windows to deal with. I could do the Revell kit, but thinking about 1/72. Any comments are welcome.
  4. A quick question - is it possible to use a Heller E3A kit to build an Australian Air Force 707 without any major surgery?
  5. On March 14 1960 SAS Boeing 707 en route from New York to Stockholm with refueling stop in London Gatwick was struck by lightning and lost power in three of four engines. The pilots issued "MayDay" and attempted successful emergency water landing in Baltic Sea in proximity of USSR territorial waters, all passengers and crew were eventually picked up by Soviet coast guard and emergency vessels but the plane sunk and was written off as a hull loss. By that time the only Soviet long range civil type was turboprop Tu-114 derived from Tu-95 bomber. Although being comfortable and reliable the type cruise speed was about Mach 0.71. The development of faster Il-62 was in its early stages therefore the opportunity to study one of the most advanced western types to speed up development was too good to miss. The plane was quickly and secretly salvaged from the bed of relatively shallow Baltic Sea and transferred to Yakovlev design bureau for studying. In September 1960 during the meeting in the Ministry of Aviation Industry Yakovlev mentioned that his bureau could deliver long range jet ariliner prototype based on reverse engineered 707 quicker and cheaper than Ilyushin that had given a green light for copying of 707 as Yak-62 as Il-62 competitor. Indeed, Yak-62 has made its first flight in July 1961 and after completion of state trials was recommended for mass production that begun in late 1962. Although based on 707 design Yak-62 was not its 100% copy - it was redesigned to comply with Soviet standards, dimensions and manufacturing process that made it 8% heavier than original 707. Soviets decided not to copy RR Convays but use four Kuznetsov NK-9 engines that had similar characteristics but were slightly more fuel hungry. Visually Yak-62 had different nose (early versions even had glass navigator cabin instead of radar), fuselage length, wing profile, cabin window layout, engine pylons and nacelles. Yak-62 was intended solely for internal use and served long haul routes such as Moscow-Khabarovsk and Moscow-Vladivostok. Unlike Tu-114 and later Il-62 Yak-62 was not considered as "achievement of Socialism" and therefore was not offered for export on international exhibitions. Its western ancestry was the reason of its quick withdrawal from service - although appreciated by passengers and crews alike all 34 of produced machines were replaced by Il-62 in just 15 years. I once bought a lot on e-bay that contained three airliners I truly wanted to build one day but the fourth was Airfix 707. I'm not a big fan of the type and this "WhatIf GB" is perhaps the only chance for it to be built
  6. New Airfix 707-436 in BOAC colours. Nice build excpet a lot of trimming needed of excess plastic. Also a word of warning- DO NOT use old spray varnish if it starts coming out like syrup! it makes a mess had to redo the white cos of it.
  7. ...that next to the engines, that is! Hi chaps, I was just browsing through Pointerdog7's decal list and from doing a bit of on-line research I got to discover this picture: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Uganda_Airlines_Boeing_707_Groves-1.jpg Can anyone please tell me what that pod hanging near the wing to fuselage join is? Was there another example hanging on the opposite side? Any detail pictures of it anywhere? I was pondering about what livery to use on my first 707 and this looks kind of interesting. I also noticed that there were at least two slightly different liveries worn by Uganda Airlines 707s: the one pictured above and this: Is the livery as shown by the Pointerdog decals the second (final) one? Any idea what year the font and tail design got changed? Thank you! Cheers, Niki
