anyone have any vaguely reliable news on any upcoming minicraft releases? in particular the CO 737, alitalia md-80, and any 777? all were listed as late nov, but they change that every month. also does anyone know if they are still planning on releasing a 727-200?... because i hate airfix.

I'm curious to know if they're going to go-ahead with the 747 kits in 1:144 scale. I recently completed their AA MD-82 and it turned out really nice (except the clearcoat screwed up the aluminum paint job really badly).

Latest news has the 777 with all three engine types and in UA, CO and AA markings to be released imminently. 727 kit is delayed until January. There is still talk about a 747-300, but no concrete news. And that's about it.

talked to Greg Brawbaugh of draw decals yesterday at the airline collectiables show at BFI, and hesaid he'd built a minicarft 777. Apparently the engines are very good, using the sectional construction style of the md-80 kit. what a relief. I keep having 757 nightmares...
