Regional Jets Models In 1/200 Scale

Sat Sep 11, 2010 4:48 pm

Hello!

I recently started to collect aircraft models. All but a few of my 20 or so models are 1/200 scale and are mainly from Skymarks, Hogan, precision models and others. I am having a really difficult time finding anything smaller than a B737 in 1/200 scale. Does anyone know if there are Dash 8s, ATRs, CRJ 100/200/700/900 or any ERJs available in 1/200 ?

What is the consensus in the collector community, does the scale really matter? For some reason I really want all my models to be on the same scale so the size of the planes is comparable to the real thing.


Thanks,

KrisYYZ

Lessee...

Here's what I've found for GeminiJets:
American Eagle ERJ-145
Northwest Airlink RJ-85 (Don't know if that's what you're looking for, but it fits the category)
AC Jazz/US AW Express/QantasLink Dash 8-100

Herpa should have some too, but I haven't had a chance to look yet.

I saw a Bahamasair HS 748, made by Gemini Jets, in 1:200 at Airliners International last month. It looked like a nice model, but the blue seemed a little too dark.

I have the Q400 in 1/200, it's all metal and right on par with Gemini Jets 1/200 models. It doesn't have a brand on it, I picked it up at the Alaska / Horizon company store here in Seattle.

Incidentally - they are open to the public and offer all Alaska branded Gemini Jets 1/200 models for $30. So far I've bought them all, 737-400 in Salmon and Alaska Statehood colors, 737-800 in Boeing Dreamliner and Starliner 75 colors, and even the MD80. Also picked up the metal 1/200 727-200 for the same price.

Regional jets took quite a long time to arrive in 1/400 scale, and even now the EMB-170/190 range still doesn't exist. So I think it will be still a little while before 1/200 sees a complete lineup of RJ's.

If you must collect regional planes, I'd say do a combo of 1/200 and 1/400 planes. Besides, it will look great when you can have the same a/c in both scales. I've done that with a few 747's and it's stunning!
I like British Airways! I'm not sure why, but I do! ;-)

Gemini Jets' web page is now saying metal 1:200 Convair 240 / 340 / 440 / 580 models will be "coming soon". They are showing a picture of three Convair Liners, in Allegheny, Mohawk, and North Central colors. They look like great models!
