Looking For Large-scale UA 727

Sun Aug 12, 2007 12:26 pm

I'm trying to find a 'large' 1/100 scale United 727 in gray colors. I checked bader models,but they didn't have any in gray colors.

I found a UA 727 grey colors that is a 1:150 scale. Status: Back ordered. Price: $24.95
Website: www.justplanefun.com/Skymarks-United...Delivery-Colors-Model-p-10802.html

Here is another website that might have a scale 1:100 UA 727: www.airplaneshop.com
It ain't no normal MD80 its a Super 80!

Thanks,but they didn't have one big enough. I was looking on Bader's site,but they don't have any in the grey colors.

I don't know if anyone makes a 1/100 or greater 727. Only airliner I can readily think of that was larger than a 1/100 was the 1/72 Heller 707 Intercontinental. Made two of them-excellent detail down to the flight deck.

KMC has a 727-200 at 1/72. This model comes with the American Airlines decals. Even in Belgium, I saw this model at two different stores, so in the United States you should not have a problem finding it, or at least be able to order it from a supplier.
Yes I know Heller has a 707 at 1/72. It comes with the old Air France decals.

The problem with those models, although they may be great to look at, is where to put them at home once they are finished.

Quoting American 767 (Reply 5):

The KMC has long since diappeared from most hobby stores, and regularly commands twice its MSRP on ebay.

HOWEVER.....

I don't think the orginal poster is looking for what you and I call models.... hes looking for toys (you know those preassembled, prepainted "things").


^sorry couldn't resist.
When in doubt, one B pump off

True...though,for $250,I wouldn't call them toys....I do,however have my eye on a Capital Cargo 727,because Atlantic doesn't offer a FX or Donald Trump 727...
