PPC Holland Models

Wed Apr 23, 2008 3:59 pm

I was looking at the website of PPC Holland and saw a few 1:200 scale models I'd love to buy. I sent them several e-mails and faxes but they never replied. Does anyone know of any retailer or have access to someone who has these models available? Thanks.

You will see from the website that "They do not sell direct to the public".
Most of their models are available via promotex and on ebay.

I've been searching on e-bay for months and months and only a few show up. I did however manage to get the 1:144 Qantas 707 in the 60's livery which is beautiful, but the others I'm looking for, no hits. What is promotex?

PPC Holland made a 1:200 L-1011-500 that we gave away at Lockheed during TriStar production days, they were completely different for Wooster, Long Prosper or Herpa L-1011 models.

That was in the days before the Wooster name was taken over by Herpa and production subcontracted out to PPC. And in actual fact the Tristar model featured was produced by IMC models before being renamed CMD and finally in the late 1990s' PPC. Herpa themselves have never made a Tristar model that I am awate of. The old IMC Tristars had the whole rear fuselage unclip for the horizontal stabilizer, Wooster has two seperate left and right stabilizers and Long Proper / Flight Minatures a single piece. PPC Tristars nowadays are similar to FM.
