AA 757-200 Model

Fri Aug 22, 2003 6:52 am

I am interested to buy an American Airlines 757-200 model. I want the current colores not the retro planes. I would like to know where I can find a good priced dicast model or a plastic snap together model.

Thank you all for your information,
Kevin Ursic

You can get both from Gemini as well as the transition TWA colors... although the retrojet and the TWA might be a bit pricey now.

Minicraft has an American Airlines 757-200 at 1/144. I have that model at home. It's easy to build and the decals are easy to apply, it's a nice model. It looks exactly the same as the one shown in the middle picture above. Yes the Gemini ones you are showing, I've seen them in the Airliners and Airways magazines.

I have also built the Minicraft kit American 767 is referring to. It looks especially good on display next to the American 733 kit also by Minicraft in the same scale  Smile

I know you had said you wanted to know where to find a good priced dicast model or a plastic snap together model, but I agree with my fellow modelers, the Minicraft American Airlines B757 kit in 1:144th scale is a great way to go. It is easy to put together, and it is a great scale too, larger than die cast, and the cost is only around $15.00 at most hobby stores. I've built countless B757 kits by Minicraft, and they are a great finished product. I'd definately suggest looking at that route.
