What civil airliners do Airfix and Revelle produce? I used to have a list but it's getting too old. Can I find such a list anywhere, or can anyone tell me?

Airfix produces:
B-737-200
B-727-200
B-747
Concorde
Bae One-Eleven

Revell:
B-747-400
B-767-300
B-737-800
A320
A321
Fokker 100
A340-300
A330-300

All those planes are in 1/144th scale.

Both Revell and Airfix produce airliner kits in smaller scale, but I can`t tell you exactly which one.

Both Airfix and Revell have produced the DC-10 in the past, but not for a couple of years now.
Doyusha do a 777, but it's somewhat expensive. If you can wait until later this year or next year, Minicraft are also doing one. It should be cheaper and better detailed - the Doyusha offering has overdone recessed panel lines and the engines are oversimplified.

Ok, thanks. Is the Minicraft version in 1:144 Scale?
Do you think Airfix or/and revelle will produce the 777 sometime soon?

Do you need DC-10`s in 1:144 scale to make models with aftermarket Decals? If so, you can e-mail me directly, I still have some Revell DC-10`s with KLM livery, Revell ID-No is 4243. Scale 1:144!

As Heavy68 said, Doyusha of Japan offers the B777-200 in 1:144 with ANA or JAL decals, but they are quite expensive (here in Germany approx. 100 - 120 Marks!!), but HASEGAWA of Japan offers the 777-300 in 1:200 with ANA special colors decals, and the 777-200 in 1:200 scale with AA or JAL decals.
Anyway, with these great aftermarket decals for the 772 in 1:144 scale and with a lot of patience they do look good! I have made on as Kuwait Airways and another one as Egyptair, the third one will be CO in a few weeks.

Thom@s

All Minicraft airliner releases are in 1/144. They're also releasing a 727 later this year - supposedly a marked improvement over the old Airfix offering.
As for the 777, with reasonable efforts from Doyusha & Minicraft, there would be no economical sense for another manufacturer to bother. They would be better to do a subject that hasn't been done or another derivative of one of their existing releases (usually military) to maximise revenue return from their initial tooling investment. Airfix particularly hasn't tooled a new airliner subject since the early '70s - they just do another production run every couple of years. They were good for their day, but today's superior level of detail & quality mean they are not that desirable compared to Revell's & Hasegawa's recent kits.

Heller makes planes in 1/125th scale. As far as I know they have 747 Classic, 727-200, DC-10, A300 and A320.
