Well, Herpa's older moulds leave alot to be desired. So I recommend you either buy a "new generation" Herpa 757 (which has scale landing gear) or I think you might want to try buying StarJets 757's. They have much better moulds, but their selection is a bit less.

Hope this helps,
I like British Airways! I'm not sure why, but I do! ;-)

The United 757 because it has new more realistic landing gear.
I agree with Ba777-236 though, Starjets are totally superior to Herpas.

Well well, look who it is. How are you Travis/Chad? I bet your great Travis after just dumping me as a friend.... Anyways, I agree with both the above, United 757 or America West 757 but Starjets would be the best choice.

Regardless of the fact that the New Generation models are a lot nicer and much more detailed, I like to think about the older models. However this also depends on how wide your choice is. If you can only choose the newer models then I would recommend the United Airlines 757(New Generation). Another nice one is the United States Air Force 757 (Which isn't really called a 757. I think it's called a VC-32) but it is nice. It's not New Generation though it is fairly new.

If you can buy older, yet discontinued models, I would buy a TACV Cabo Verde 757, or even better: a Ethiopian Airlines Cargo 757-200F which is now rare and it gives your airport diorama more color.

I hope this helped. Take care.
