2nd issue by Atlantis! 1/96 Scale. From the Original Aurora Tooling which was updated by Monogram in the late 1970's. Kit is molded in white with clear part for windshield. Decals for Boeing Prototype. Features detailed landing gear with 13.5 inch wingspan. Skill Level 2.
This is a classic kit, however, it is not the -200 as the box indicates. Its the same mold as the first release of the Eastern 727-100 Whisper Jet kit. In order to make it the -200 a little surgery will be needed along with a sacrificial 727-100 kit that you will have to cut up to extend the -100 to make it a -200. Other than that, its a nice kit for its age.
First, while it is marketed as a 727-200, it is not. It is the same 727-100 kit originally issued by Aurora in the 1960s, and then by Monogram in the 70s. Secondly, it lacks the detail found in more modern model kits. The upside of this kit is that Boeing did fly a -100 with this livery, so by cutting off the "-200" on the decal, you can still use the decal. This is also a fairly easy kit to build as it is only comprised of 36 pieces, and it's an easy paint job. A young person could build this in a short period of time and get away without even painting it. I remember building this in the late 60s when I was about 10 years old, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
