Wonderful birds! Did you use the same donor for all of them?

Great job on the customs. I love the Poppy livery, they often get overlooked by model manufacturers. I also like the Grand Union livery, especially as I live near the Grand Union Canal which is what the design is based on.

The Comair fleet is so nice. The only 727s operated in British Airways colors, I suppose. The Union Jack one is really beautiful!!!

Yep, only them, IIRC they were six. Interestingly, there are small windowline differences, on left side, between them. Also, on ZS-NOU "Blomsterang" (Herpa - used it as donor) and on ZS-NOV "Delftblue Daybreak" the British Airways titles are placed slightly to the rear, if compared to the other four. In the short time they flew for Comair, at least one or two had the original Comair livery, at least one got the "Landor" colors and perhaps one or two later received the standard "Union Flag" (other than the already painted ZS-OBM). Not so much photos or data available...

Here's a family picture, minus the Herpa donor.
