Whatever it is .... or isn't .... it's still "WRONG" .... as both Klaus, and Walter, have already "CORRECTLY" stated.
The engines and V-fin identify that particular model as being an early production and P&W JT3D fan-jet powered -320B .... not an -ADV, or -C .... and certainly not a RR CONWAY fan-jet powered -420 either.
Whilst the RR CONWAY engine heralded-in the era of fan-jet technology with regard to the B707 (and DC-8), only 37 B707-420's were ever produced by BOEING (versus 32 DC-8-40's poduced by DOUGLAS) .... each being delivered to AIR INDIA, BOAC/BRITISH AIRWAYS, CUNARD EAGLE, EL AL, LUFTHANSA, and VARIG only.
In the case of AIR INDIA, EL AL, and LUFTHANSA these aircraft were eventually replaced with -320B ADV's and -C's.
Other operators did acquire, or lease, B707-420's when as these aircraft began to be parted-out from the fleets of their original original operators, but, none retained them for any lengthy duration .... since the -320B ADV, and -C, were more economical and further supported by superior operating logistics too.
The above 3D model looks, to me, to be a regurgitation of the old Roc DOLENEC (I think is his name) version which originates from prior to 2006.
Love the way they say their product can't be exploited without approval, yet by their own admission/accreditation they've obviously seen fit use George CARTY's gauges .... which, so far as I'm aware, he's never sanctioned the use of
TO BE BRUTALLY HONEST .... and I'm not intending to promote HJG's product in regard to what I'm about to say ....
"IF" you're really wanting a B707-420 (any B707/720 or C-135 for that matter), then .... "and for the time being at least" .... you're not going to find better "FREEWARE" versions than what's offered here (supported by George's panels customized for each different version, and Benoit's customized sound packs for each engine/aircraft type version, and our recently edited/re-released FDE too ....

Could also be a typing error! As a curious side aspect: Air France seems had operated some real 707-420 around 1970.
Can't view your link Walter (looks like it's blocked), but, if captioned as a -420 then I believe that'll be "a typo" or "misidentification of the aircraft subject" by whomever uploaded and titled that image.
So far as I'm aware .... AF "never" operated, or even leased, the B707-420.
AF acquired the P&W JT4A turbojet powered "B707-320" (the first few of of which were delivered during 1959 featuring the original short tail fin which, during 1960, were modified with the tail fin extention and what thereafter became the standasrd b707/720 tail silhouette). AF took delivery of 21 -320's between 1959 and 1962 .... and which were eventually replaced with a sizeable fleet -320B ADV's and -C's from 1963. Both the -320 and -420 are "almost" identical .... save for their engine types .... RR P&W JT4A turbojet engines for the 320's and RR CONWAY 508 fan-jet engines for the -420's.. The exhaust pipes on the end of the CONWAY's being "slightly different" from those on the P&W JT4A's.
Just to clarify what I was really meaning in regards to my comment (of yesterday) concerning the HJG B707 flight line ....
I (perhaps) should have used the word "CONCISE" .... implying .... "the physical variation among the 3D models we/HJG offer for each individual B707/720 type are more thorough than has previously been represented per FS freeware or payware". That's how Gary CARLSON organized our B707 flight line from the very start .... back in 2002/3.
