I confess that I always wanted a certain type of plane model siting on my table but have never done it.
In San Diego, there used to be this store where they sold airplane stuff, a whole store at least 5,000 square feet, it was called "Wild Blue Yonder" and this place had a giant ceiling with lots of glass and there was a biplane hanging from the ceiling. Back then, I don't know if I was young or maybe my dad was stubborn, he never et me buy anything. I do not know from when they existed but they closed down in the early 1990's, maybe 1992.
I've seen this type of model airplane, white plastic and probably pre-built 1:200 scale. I wanted the 6" 737 models and the 747 and Concorde models with the old BA livery, no landing gear. (I prefer realistic gear as they are the most pronounced part of an airpalne to me)
But even back then as now when I see toy models like the one's I used to see, the main problem is that there is no company name on the box the models came in. Just the carrier and the airplane model name. This was and still is very frustrating. I cannot look them up online, I would need to see their products to determine if they were there way back then.
It's been 15 years, are they still around, who bought them, I don't know.
Can someone help me?
