Long Prosper Models, Excesories

Fri Nov 10, 2000 4:40 am

Hello,
I collect Long Prosper models 1:200 scale, does anyone know a website to their site. I would like to ask them if they plan on releasing models in US AIRWAYS livery, also are there any airport models in 1:500 scale that would go along with this scale.

hello,
Long prosper has a website, i have been to it about 6 months ago...sorry i dont remember the address. It has very little information on their models. It is basically short information on their products. However, I can check with people i know if they will soon or currently have those type of models in US Airways livery. I will post another reply as soon as possible...

Kind Regards,

Ok,
I thank you for finding those. The same companys can be ordered through AIRPLANESHOP.COM
The only concern i have is this, for example if i took a Long Prosper 757-200 and a Wooster 757-200 will they look the same in terms of window size, engine size.?
Thanks

yes, pretty much if they are both the same scale. Long prosper is usually a little better with quality.


kind regards

I have two things to say.

1) Long prosper is much better quality because they include info such as registration numbers.

2) Don't buy from airplaneshop.com. I have compared their prices, and they are always at least $2 more than other sites. For example, for DL Long Prosper models, airplaneshop.com charges ~$25. Follow the links from Delta's website to Delta's official store, and they are $13.95.

I guess you'd have to live near Fairfield or JFK to get reasonable prices. For those are their two retail stores. I have gotten pretty good deals from airplaneshop.com as well as airplanesuperstore.com
