Model Talks

"QUANTAS 707: New from Frog is the Boeing 707 B turbofan airliner in the colours of Quantas, Australia's biggest airline. This model, to a 1/144" scale, retails at 7s. 6d. As there are several other Boeing 707 models currently available on the market it will be very interesting to see how successful from the sales viewpoint this new addition to the already large family of models of this well known jet giant will be. Enthusiasts who do buy this kit will, I think, agree with me when I say that there is a top-class set of transfers in the kit. Unfortunately the transfers are not only provided as actual decals but also as a substitute for the passenger windows. Maybe we plastic modellers have been molly-coddled by manufacturers. It does not seem so very long ago that window transfers would have been regarded as wonderful. But times have changed since then. I am sure that most modellers expect cut-out windows."

RAF Flying Review October 1962


Did we really make the sad mistake of putting a "U" into "QANTAS" when we referred to Australia's Overseas Airline a few months back? It seems we did —and Reader S.A. Scotland has written in to remind us that the initials stand for Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services — without a "U." Claiming to be the oldest airline in the English-speaking world, QANTAS was founded in 1920. Its modest original objectives—to provide scheduled air services and joy-riding facilities for the citizens of a small part of Northern Australia—were counterbalanced by a name so imposing that the initials took over almost immediately. With the growth of QANTAS beyond the seas, the original name has long since lost significance except as a reminder of brave and difficult origins. But it is up to clots like us at least to spell it right! QANTAS

NEW AND IN VIEW

"Re-issues of FROG Herald, Britannia, Comet 4 and Boeing 707. 1/72, 1/96, 1/96 and 1/144 scale respectively.

No manufacturer's name given (Not made by Rovex) Price 8/11. each. (U.K.)

These four kits represent a good idea spoilt by inexcusable carelessness. The models themselves are well-known, so no further comment will be made on them, and we shall confine our remarks to the new transfer sheets provided.

If the foregoing kits are bad, the 707 is a real shocker. Described as "The President's Jet", its markings bear no relation to those of the well-known Air Force One. Despite diligent search, we have been totally unable to uncover any evidence of their authenticity, and can only assume them to be the product of some designer's dreams. Beside such folly, the fact that the kit represents a 707 - 420 with the original short fin rudder, and is quite unlike any sort of U.S.A.F. VC-137 or C-135 is of minor importance. The issue of models of this degree of inaccuracy is, in 1967, well-nigh unbelievable. It is the greater pity in that the kits themselves, though old, are basically good. All four types could have been provided with attractive, appropriate, and accurate transfer sheets at no more cost than was necessary to produce the abortions inflicted upon them. The only virtue of these kits is that they enable anyone who wants to buy the models to do so at a lower price than hitherto."

The IPMS Magazine, november 1967


NEW AND IN VIEW

"Frog. This is an accurate and neatly-pressed 1/144 scale kit representing the original short-fin 707-420. It is not quite up to the standard of the Airfix kit, in that the cabin windows are not pressed out and surface detail is less good. The transfer sheet gives old-style B.O.A.C. markings, and is accurate; the kit has also been issued with accurate but inappropriate Qantas livery and wholly spurious U.S.A.F. markings."

The IPMS Magazine, january 1968

"Magazine November 1967 issue, Review of Boeing 707 kit: We have recently seen a photograph which proves that the markings provided with this kit are authentic, though they are actually those of a VC—137A, and are therefore better applied to the Revell model rather than the Frog one. Our apologies go to the designer of the decals and to Members, for this error."

    Revell, Boeing 707, 1960


    Model Talks
    WING PUZZLE:

    A very neat model of the Boeing 707 in BOAC colours has just come from Revell. With a span of lH-inches ( a scale of just under 1/148) it is just large enough for realistic decorations to be added yet it is not so big that it will annoy those responsible for keeping the house tidy. Retail price is 8s. 6d. I found that this model went together extremely well—until I came to fix the wings to the fuselage. There are, I discovered, two small lugs on the lower wing halves, just where they join the fuselage. The effect of these is to leave a slight gap on the underside of the fuselage join and to provide a good, accurate join on the top surface. But they also produce an exaggerated dihedral. If you pick the lugs off with a razor blade you will find that the underside join is correct, the dihedral more realistic —and that there is a gap to fill in on the top!

    When you have sorted the wings out to your satisfaction you can start thinking about colour schemes. The BOAC transfers provided give the registration number as G-BOAC. This is, admittedly, what BOAC themselves have used on their advance publicity for these aircraft but in service the aircraft will be given correct registration numbers beginning with G-A. ... If you would like a little more colour on your model then I suggest you turn it into a Qantas 707. Basic colour scheme is red and white. In the fin and rudder decor illustrated the two bands, the word " QANTAS" and the flying kangaroo are in red with the registration letters in black. Both sides of the fuselage also carrying the word QANTAS in large red letters on the forward end with the legend Australia's overseas airline in smaller dark grey letters on the centre and aft sections of the fuselage. Aft of this is a small Australian flag. The cheat line along the windows is red.

    The wings are lettered in black with QANTAS on top outer port and " VH-EBE" top outer starboard. These positions are reversed on the undersides.
