The Aeroclassics 727-200 mould is not faultless, the tail top is a bit of a mess and the no 2 engine exhaust is way too big but overall it is good enough and certainly forward of the tail very good. Sometimes Aeroclassics has trouble printing the cockpit windows on their 727s and creates a rather angry look. This should be easy to avoid by making sure the side windows don’t angle upwards and perhaps slightly increasing the height of the front windows.
Anyway, on to the wishlist. I have found 40 prime 727-200s yet to be made, apologies if I've missed a holy grail of yours. Add a comment if I have!
I think that all of these have a reasonable case for production and I'd get the lot:
Nowhere operated anywhere near as many 727s as the States and the options left are impressive, especially for deregulation startups:
The 727 saw quite wide service with major flag carriers but there were relatively few smaller operators. Even so what about these?
Africa / Middle-East
So that's it. Please get to it Aeroclassics!

I'd buy most of the United States list! Lots of colorful Deregulation-era 727's in the 1980's. And the 1970's Frontier bow and arrow is elegant and smart.

2 from Latin America for me, Air Jamaica in the orange and yellow livery from the 80s and early 90s and Cayman Airways who had 2 beautiful 727s in the 80s, neither have ever been done in 1:400 though I do have them both in 1:100!
