Up for sale is a brand new 1:200 scale Boeing Company 757-300 by JC Wings in their house livery.

In September 1996, following a launch order for 12 aircraft from charter carrier Condor, Boeing announced the stretched 757-300 at the Farnborough Airshow.  The new model was a 23.4-foot stretch of the 757-200, resulting in room for 50 more passengers and nearly 50 percent more cargo. The type’s design phase was intended to be the shortest in its manufacturer’s history, with 27 months from launch to certification. Due to development and cost concerns, radical upgrades such as a Next Generation 737-style advanced cockpit were not implemented. Instead, the stretched derivative received upgraded engines, enhanced avionics, and a redesigned interior. The first 757-300 rolled out on May 31, 1998, and completed its maiden flight on August 2, 1998. Following regulatory certification in January 1999, the type entered service with Condor on March 19, 1999.

The 757-300 was also ordered by American Trans Air, Arkia Israel Airlines, Continental Airlines, Icelandair, and Northwest Airlines. Sales for the type remained slow, and ultimately 55 aircraft were built. Boeing had targeted the 757-300 as a potential 767-200 replacement for two of its largest customers, American Airlines and United Airlines, but neither were in a financial position to commit to new aircraft. Overtures to other charter airlines also did not result in further orders.  By November 1999, faced with diminishing sales and a reduced backlog despite the launch of the 757-300, Boeing began studying a decrease in 757 production rates.

Customer interest in new 757s continued to decline, and in 2003, a renewed sales campaign centred on the 757-300 and 757-200PF yielded only five new orders. In October 2003, following Continental Airlines’ decision to switch its remaining 757-300 orders to the 737-800, Boeing announced the end of 757 production. The 1,050th and last example, a 757-200 built for Shanghai Airlines, rolled off the production line at the Renton factory on October 28, 2004.

This model air-plane is made from die-cast metal and include extensive detailing. It is similar in quality to Aeroclassics, Phoenix Models, NG Models, Geminijets, Inflight200 and Aviation200.

Model includes display stand.
