Finally I won this long searched for kit
received it on 15 November 2011. The
mould origin is quoted as unknown in PAK
20  and I suppose beside discussions
Airfix Collecting Forum
Flugzeugforum also among other
collectors and modellers.
I determined the
scale to be around 1:117. Taking
into account errors in measurement resp.
in the Progresswerk design this scale
may well round to 1:120, even 1:125.
That may point out to HELLER origin,
especially as Progresswerk did
distribute kits of this company (see
I bought the Heller Boeing 727 (No
80447 ) and
compared the parts. It was clearly to be
seen that the two kits have completely
different parts (pictures
So this Boeing 727 kit is another
example of a kit made from an mould
designed by Progresswerk itself.
There is evidence that the mould
of this Boeing 727 is used for the
Atlantic Models B 727. I have
to do more research to confirm this.
