Murph's Models/OBP Planes, 1/300

I have covered quite a number of scales on Murph's Models and his previous Odd Ball Productions (OBP) Planes but not this one, 1/300, that is applicable to larger aircraft like airliners, bombers and transporters etc. Storage problem is the main consideration when building, and collecting, this category of paper model planes. Of course, the easy way out is to give away built models to save the storage headache.

The first in this series, is Murph's B747 that consists of 10 versions published in 2017 and an additional one some time later. I had given out 10 of them as Xmas gifts in 2017 but not all recipients returned a favour by presenting finished build pictures. So I intend to start building some if not all of them.

The first one is the AF1 here http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/752380-post123.html and the second one is the Global Supertanker that will be appearing soon. Stay tuned if you are interested.

I had to look up what kind of tanker it was. It should have been called fire engine imho.

747 Supertanker - Wikipedia

Very nice work as always papermate.
