Awesome! Hopefully it actually is 1/72 and not some weird scale as some of their earlier prodicts were.

Let us first hope for the correct version......The box art depicts the B707A, which is a KC-135 equivalent. It has shorter and narrower wings, a shorter tail fin and the shape at the rear of the wings where it joins the fuselage is wrong for a B707C model, which is what we operated. The C-model had bigger wings, a taller tail and a total different configuration where the trailing edge joined the fuselage, due to the trailing edge flaps. So, if you want to go the SAAF route with this one (if it is as depicted) good luck!

Cheers,
P.
