Have you seen a fake one, and if so what gives them away?

Nope, I needed several engines. I got a cheap SAS DC-7 with broken gears a while ago, from which I took two engines.
But I guess, the seller, you mentioned, was the one, from which I got the front gear. I saw, he had an engine as well.

Cheers!

Finally got the Alitalia today! Not as rare as Sudflug, but still pretty rare...

Got a Sudflug today! Now the only Tekno DC-7 I don't have is the KLM with the tri-color flag on the tail. Maybe someday...

Price was incredible 45,- Euros, really high for that time.
During the past year I got replacements for the engines, the props and the front gear. It stood incomplete for nearly 14 years. Now it's back complete again.
Unfortunately a bit of the decals got lost, very usual for the Tekno planes...

Cheers,
Chris
