Hey all...

I obtained a very nice 1/100 747 kit off ebay. Very nice size at 28" long.

So my question is this:

Were it YOU, what 747-based movie would you represent with the model?

Some I've been thinking of:
--Airforce One
--Executive Decision
--Terminal Velocity
--Airport '75

Also if any of you have finished 747 kits, I'd love to see them.

The Trans American from "Airplane" would be awesome, but it looks like it's a 707.

There's also Air Force One as depicted in Independence Day.

But I guess if you're going to do an Air Force One, it might as well be from Air Force One. That way, your build-up will be the title character. :p

This is the plane I work and fly on. The first picture is an actual pic of a real world klaxon on Sept 11th, 2001.


The plane used in Airplane was actually a model of a Boeing 720. The predessor to the 707.

I say go for the plane from the most popular film. Probably "Airport 75'"

Dont forget to make a maquette of George Kennedy in the pilot's seat. :D

Wow. Cool pics of Airforce One. :thumbsup

If you got the old Entex kit, I would build it with vintage United markings like on the box cover. I bought this kit as a kid, it was my pride and joy. The red/orange/blue United markings made for one of the nicest 747 color schemes I've ever seen. IMO :)

I almost bid on this kit, would love to get another one. Plus all the other Doyusha 1/100 jets to go with it. ;)

Cool pics, Darth Detroit. Did you hear of the big dust up this week over the AF1plans and security details that someone found posted on an AF website? It took two days to get them taken down. Yikes.

Air Force One all the way. It's the symbol that the whole world recognizes as the thing that most says America, no matter where it goes. Jack Valente said "There are two places that the power of the Presidency shines the most. One is the White House and the other is Air Force One."

I have a 747 kit in 1/144 scale and I've already got a ton of photos off the web of AF1 so, I have ANOTHER project to do..........someday. :D

Do the airforce one from Superman , detail it with a blown up port engine and a superman miniature holding the plane up. :) That's how I would do it.
