the reciprocal : maybe slightly less believable, but well, it had to be tried, by symmetry  ;)

Beautiful!!  Reminds me of a tail-dragger version of a McDonnell Model 220.

thanks !  ;D

if you would like to have a try, it can be done a bit smaller :
a 1/144 B707 instead of 1/72 with a 1/96 C-47 instead of 1/48 (if the latter exists ...)
or
a 1/72 C-47 with a 1/108 B707  (if the latter exists ...)

Would use 1/72 C-47 and go wing hunting in stash.  Posted four prop engine C-47H January 2018.  Like to build swept wing jet version.

I think I remember your C-47H
you may indeed find other fits with 1/144 jet wings

I recently found a few quite big kits for quite cheap, so temptation was un-resistable :

here is a K-A380 (with upgraded number of engines, too), made from the Heller 1/125 kit, plus additives from AMT 1/72 B52 and KC-135

This is quite brilliant and if you added a blue airline decal on each side up top and maybe a logo on the tail, you'd have something that would turn heads at any model show worthy of the name!

Outstanding and another great use of primary colors!

The Skyfleet S570 is a fictional prototype double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by Skyfleet Aeronautics. The aircraft first appeared in the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale and was subsequently seen in the 2008 James Bond video game Quantum of Solace.
