Dutch Posted March 7, 2022 Share Posted March 7, 2022 (edited) I recently purchased one of the re-issued Revell 1:139 Boeing 720 United Mainliner kits. It is the same Revell 707/707B/720/E-3A basic airframe plastic with indented cabin windows. Engines are the JT3C / J-57 engines halves with each strut having the long narrow turbo-compressor hood and short trailing edges. However, the turbine bullets have been deleted and replace by a tiny bump in the center of a flat thick disk. Not sure what I can do about that. Most probably add larger bullets. The United decals do not impress me. I am open to suggestions. So, what are my legitimate options? AFAIK, United did not operate the 707-120, they bought DC-8s instead. However, they did purchase the 720 because of the increased speed. For a true 720, I will still have to make a fuselage cuts fore & aft, as well as add the wing glove and remove the turbo hoods on #1 & #4. Can I cut it down for a C-135A, or a 707-138? [Same overall fuselage length for both, just different cuts fore & aft.] I only have a few 720B decals in the stash, mostly for the several AWACS kits in the stash. I could use the Pakistan Airlines decals from the old Microscale 44-21, just modify the reg. K/r, Dutch Edited March 9, 2022 by Dutch added detail. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
