Best Large-scale Model Of CO 757 With Winglets?

Mon Jan 15, 2007 1:56 am

I was wondering, if there is a well-made model of the Continental B757 WITH winglets available in the US, preferrably in 1:100 scale.
By googling, I found only this example, which is sold on eBay:



Unfortunately, the low resolution of the picture is does not reveal a lot of detail. The winglets appear to be a little plump. And just the poor rendition of the tail logo on the wooden base is enough to turn me off. Also, I am reluctant to buy from someone, who ships directly from Asia.

I wish, Atlantic had it, but they make only the version without winglets.

Does anyone of know of any other makes of this model? I would appreciate any helpful tips.

On eBay you can look up a certain seller, by the name of "b757300er". He sells 1/100 scale aircraft from Desktop, Atlantic, Wooster (1/200's), and sometimes even Wesco/Bader I presume. He has a Desktop model of a CO 752 with winglets for I think USD$139.95. Hope that helps.
