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."
Philip Burden 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
Editor Peter Williams
RAF Flying Review March 1960


"The Qantas version is very rare and probably saw only limited production."

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


ERRATA
     "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."
The IPMS Magazine, march 1969


"The USAF version was sold as "The President's Jet"."

"... the Boeing 707 is a special case worth mention. A batch of some 3,000 707s were received by Novo and quickly distributed. However, it was soon found that most kits suffered moulding defects and in the end all but a very few were recalled by Novo or returned to them by irate buyers."
