DC-8 Jet Collection








Western Airlines

747-147
(Proposed)

1/100 Scale














Color Scheme: Delivery Colors (Proposed)


Registration: N74700


Composition: Solid One Piece Plastic


Dimensions: Length: 27.5″ (70.5cm), Wingspan 23.5″ (60.5cm)


History: This Model Was Evidently Produced by the Boeing Model
Shop (or Possibly Pacific Miniatures) and Presented to Western Management
in the Effort to Sell Them The 747. Western Later Chose The McDonnell
Douglas DC-10 Instead and, of course, Changed Their Paint Scheme
to the "Flying W" Scheme. I Purchased This From A Collector
Friend and Received it on December 20, 2001. I don’t usually collect
"Proposed" or "Fantasy Scheme" Type Models but
couldn’t resist this because I worked for Western for many years.


Condition: Very Good
