B-727?
Posted by Don Stauffer on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 9:04 AM

I'm sure getting tired waiting for that new release of the RoG 727!  Has anyone actually seen it on shelves, or recieved one?

Brings up the question- if it never really happens, are there any other 1:144 727s available right now?  I bought decals when the RoG repop was announced- I need something to use them on!

There are a bunch on evilbay. Lowest price I see is $14.99+$3.78 postage. Haven't seen any on stores or online shops.

Hi All,

The "new" Revell 727 is a reissue of the 1962(?) 727-100 kit. It is supposed to have a pretty good shape, but it is covered with raised rivets and the nose wheels look too large. The cockpit windows are open, while the cabin windows are indentions in the fuselage. I had one in progress, but have yet to finish it. It was an original issue and the plastic is so brittle, it keeps cracking. I used a leftover clear cockpit part from a Daco 737, which really inproved the looks of the model. I think the only other 1/144 injected 727s available are Airfix's -100 and -200 and Minicraft's -200. The Airfix -100 molds were modified to make the -200 kit. OzMods makes a -100 conversion, but I can't recall for which kit. For the absolute best 1/144 727 kits, go with Authentic Airliners' resin kits. They are pretty expensive, but unmatched in accuracy.

I believe the Ozmod kit is designed to work with the Airfix or Minicraft kit. I almost got one, but someone gave me a good deal on the Airfix version so just went with that instead.
