| Description

The Boeing 707 prototype first flew in 1954 and the first order was placed by Pan American in 1955. In 1956 BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation) ordered 18 of the larger 707-420 ‘Intercontinental’ version of the Boeing 707, powered by Rolls Royce Conway engines instead of the usual Pratt and Whitney JT4A engines.

To comply with British airworthiness requirements a taller fin, rudder and a ventral fin were added. Known as the 707-436 in BAOC service they started flying scheduled services in May 1960.

One of the better old airliner kits

This was a project undertaken by my 6 year old daughter (she passed 6 while in progress). With minimal assistance she was able to get it to go together well.
The body stripe decals don't wrap around the nose particularly well but the run along the sides went on well and even the tail flash did not bubble beyond what could be rectified. A lot of the small items took a while and were mobile for a while afterwards which is tricky for younger modellers and the pylon decals are pretty nasty. Still she got a very nice result (the cockpit glass took a bit of filing by Dad to fit snugly but otherwise this one is still a good junior project).
The part count is low for a series 5 kit but this is not such an issue for yoingsters. I would expect more detail for this amount of money. Still it looks better and has fewer construction order issues than the 727.
