Minicraft''s 707 is the first widely available kit of the “Intercontinental” variant of the 707 with JT3D engines in the box. Previously, modellers wishing to do a -320 had to convert the Airfix -420 by replacing the Conway engines and altering the wing trailing edge. There are a few inaccuracies but nothing major. A decent model can be built right out of the box, and a little work will turn it into a show stopper.

Great review, and very helpful suggestions (hope I can still remember them when I actually get around to building this kit ).
