Any A/c Model You Would Like To Have Been Made?

Sun Jun 01, 2008 7:25 am

Any ac model you would like to have been made ?


Some aircraft models never seem to show up on the various model makers production line.


I would love to see ( in 1/500 scale ) :

Thai Airways airbus 300 ( old colours )
Aero Mexico DC 10 ( Old colours ( silver / orange ) )
Air Rarotonga Saab 340
Braathens S.A.F.E 737
KLM Cityhopper Fokker 70 ( white colour )

Royal Norwegian Airforce F 16
Royal Norwegian Airforce Hercules

I'm crossing my fingers in the hope that Corgi will release a 1:72 diecast B-29, as that would complete my 'want' list  Smile

I'm trying to find Aerospatiale Alliance in any scale.

That was the Concorde replacement. It was made in very limited numbers and I understand it is quite a collectors item.

I'd also like to have Hogan Wings / Socatec make all the Concorde prototypes in 1:200 scale as they've done with the production Concordes. I'd go for F-WTSS, G-BSST, G-AXDN and F-WTSB, or maybe even Delta Golf in the red-tail promo colour scheme.

I am really, honestly shocked that the only company that has made an AA MD-82 in 1:400 is Dragon. And for those of you that know the...stigma, with that model, you'll know what I mean when I say they're hard to find.

I know Gemini made a lovely 1:200 model, but the 1:400 seems like a no-brainer, too.

Anybody know why so few MD-80s are circulating around?

Air Baltic Fokker 50 would be my wish.I have seen Air Baltic Fokker 50 made out of wood,but I dont know,it seems like something was wrong with that model,it did not seem in scale.It is still on E-Bay,but I really would prefere that Gemini Jets or Herpa would make this very cool plane Smile

I'm a big fan of Corgi models, so I was thrilled when they came out with the VC-10 this year. I hope they will do an East African VC-10 soon.

I also hope they will do a BAC One-Eleven model someday. The One-Eleven was flown by both Court Line and Braniff, and flew in both airlines' "rainbow / easter egg" schemes, so there would be a LOT of great schemes to choose from!

I still want Revell GERMANY to produce a 1/144th A-346...they don't seem to want to produce this just like the 1/144th 757, no one wants to produce one at the level that Revell Germany and some of the other high level kit mftrs. work at...I anxiously await the day they announce production of either one of these kits...j

I would love to see Revell of Germany come out with any of the E-jets (E-170,175,190,195) or a CRJ-200/700/900....all in 1/144 scale. Zvezda came out with a great IL-86 in 1/144, would love to see some more Russian jetliners done by them....how about a TU-154 or a TU-204?

I'm trying to get the old Airfix BA 747 kits in the 1st BA , and Landor and put them on the Revell 747 since they're better in detail than the Airfix 747. I'm hoping Minicraft will come out with a 1/144 scale 747-200 sometime.

Air Burkina

...to name a few  Smile
