If you could have any model aircraft that you wish existed, what would it be?

Personally, I would love to have a 1:200 scale Pink Delta 767-400ER (aka Blossom). Currently, I have a Flight Miniatures Delta Wavy Gravy 1:200 scale 767-400ER, which is no longer made:

What would your dream model be?

Aerospatiale Alliance SST, the Concorde replacement.

There were a small number of large scale promo-models built - but no others exist anymore. I so much wished I had one of those!

I don't have that one, but I do have G-BOAE in Landor colours (official BA model) and F-BTSD (official AF model). They are superb, really detailed 1:200 scale models and very expensive. They are the most treasured ones in my collection.

It's amazing that no European model maker makes 777's. Must be a licence thing.

Minicraft has a really nice 777 in the American livery (I happen to have this one). I think there are also Continental and Delta versions, but I'm not 100% certain.

Right now I'm torn between a larger-scale B-52A/B/C/D/E/F (anything with the original tall tail- larger being slightly bigger than 1/72) and an Eastern 757 (larger-scale would be awesome   ) Or maybe a 1/72 EC, RC, or OC-135...

I think that's made by Dragon, though. But I'm not 100% sure.

It is made by Dragon. But I want the Phoenix version is because I think they make the best 1/400 777s. Also, the Dragon version lacks registration, airline logos and 'Worldliner' titles.

Yeah, I'm a fussy collector.

When I was at LAS about ten years ago, I saw a display case near the NW ticket counter with several aircraft models.

One of the models was an Air Jet Advance 1:200 model of Braniff's "big watermelon".

Braniff originally ordered two 747-127s, but cancelled the order for the second aircraft before delivery. The 2nd aircraft would have been painted dark green, and would have been called "the big watermelon".

Does anyone know if this model is still at LAS?

Those model cases can be seen at various locations thorughout the main terminal and in Terminal D. The Big Watermelon is still there, in the same case an America West 737-100, Alaska MD-80 and TWA 767-200 are in. That's my fave case of all.

Same here! I have just about everything else, even a fantasy 767-200 that Western had ordered, but never taken delivery of!
