The largest I currently have, is a 1:100 L-1011, and soon (very soon) a 1:100 767, that'll probably be done up as a KLM machine.

 

Mine would be a Heller 1/72 707 (actually an AWACS boxing, but will be a Qantas 707 when I'm done). I've got a pair of 1/72 737s coming eventually, so I'm looking forward to building those, too.

  • Out2gtcha changed the title to 1/32 C-21A Learjet 35

But on the Learjet subject, ya'll know that actually Hughes had this aircraft in the "fighter competition" in the past and that THAT failed to be a reality, but it turned out to be one of the fastest business  jets of all times in that era, and it's still looking as if it were a fighter...........

That’s the first time I’ve heard the Learjet is a Hughes design and is in direct conflict with my knowledge based on several years of close association with Bombardier Learjet and a certain Learjet 35A s/n 498.  Can you provide me a source for that information; I’d like to dig into it a bit.

If the original Lear was a Hughes design then why was it named after the guy who invented the 8-track?  I thought the wings and tail came from a failed indigenous Swiss fighter design that Lear bought the rights to and turned into the first biz jet or something more or less along those lines.  Hughes modded Lockheed Lodestars into biz planes but nobody on the planet would ever mistake a Lodestar for a Learjet.  Did I get all that right?  Sometimes I confuse even myself.

I might hold up on starting that 707 project if I were you.  Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.  That old Heller kit has SO many problems.

 

If you're nudging and winking in the direction that I think you are, well, I'm still waiting for my 737 kit!
