Corgi's 1:144 scale Boeing 707 is large in this scale and features near-solid diecast construction. This model's sleek tubular shaped fuselage and wonderfully sculpted nose has pad-printed windows and doors that do not interrupt the lines of the aircraft. Each release features either the engine nacelles of the early JT3 engines or the later JT4 with turbo fan details clearly seen inside each intake. Certain releases are equipped with individually applied engine noise suppression "hush" kits at each exhaust. Configuration for ground display is easy with landing gear that installs quickly and with air stairs (on most releases) for enhanced ground display (see photos).
