Default best 1:200 Concorde?

Hey guys, I'm in the market to get a Concorde. I just wanted to asks, who makes the best Concorde in 1:200 scale. I know Hogan made one (out of metal) which would explain the high cost, is there anything cheaper that's made out of resin and just as accurate? Because my "better half" wouldn't understand me paying that much for a small little aircraft.

If the Hogan model is the only one, which place sells it for the cheapest? I know Hogan made several kinds- are they all in the same amount of detail? Since I had my eye on an older livery- the Landor Livery. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi SuperKungFu, I have Two Hogan Concorde's in 1:200 scale The British Airway's red tail version, and the Air France present livery, and I only paid around £40 to £45 pound's each, they are both metal and the detail on both model's to me for that type of price is great, when other company's such as Inflight, who have not made concorde as yet do not know if they would, Would more than likely be twice the price, The only other model concorde around the 1:200 scale I have seen myself, is the basic snap together version, but doe's not have any landing gear, are the type you can by on the aircraft, around £6 to £10 pounds, ?? Other collector's on this Forum will be able to give you more info on different make's, prices, and scale's, As for the Hogan Version's I know "Aviation Retail Direct" still have the British Airways Landor and last livery one's in stock, as for the price I do not Know.

cool thanks for the info

Just one question, are all HG Concorde the same amount of detail- excluding different livery of course but all else is the same right? Because I'm looking for the Landor Livery, I know its a rare one since it was made back in 2005, but it should have the same amount of detail as a modern release one of the Union livery correct?

The two model's I have, the detail is the same, Only with the Air France version It came with a set of flight charts, for one of the routes it flew on. Stevec...

Landor isn't rare (at least I hope it's not, my model of it was the one I managed to break the gear of - bit of emergency surgery involving glue was needed. I was too embarrassed to say which one it was at the time as I'd just bought it off someone on here), in fact, about the only one that is rare is the one in the original Air France livery. Get that and you'll be doing well.

Also, yes, the models are the same, and they even have details about them written on the base of the stand, such as their first and last flights, and where they are now preserved, etc etc.

I only have 5 of them currently.

Cockpit/windows printing looks VERY different on both models ! Makes the nose a little weird on Landor version, although I didn't check which one was the most accurate.

Its amazing that these models cost us more than it did for British Airways to buy the real aircraft.

They are well worth it anyway. Getting a Hogan Concorde is always an event (so is breaking the gear, but, annyway!), so ENJOY!

Default Re: best 1:200 Concorde?

Hey guys, I'm sortof in a pickle right now. I have two choice, I can get the Landor Livery, but I won't see it until June since I'm going to purchase it from UK and it will be delivered to my friend in the UK and she will bring it to me in June, that way it keeps cost down. It would cost around $56-63 total. So the problem with this is obviously I won't see it until June, I can't inspect for any damages. God knows how girls treat models and don't know if she would protect it when she brings it to me.

My second option is to go for the G-BOAF. I can buy it right here in the states, cost around $67 and I can get it now. Plus the G-BOAF is sort of significant, it was the first to be fitted with leather seats, first to be painted with the Utopia Livery, first to fly for the return of the flight, and the very last Concorde to fly. (I believe that's right if i got my facts straight).

So anyway, what do you guys think? G-BOAF or Landor? And don't say both lol, because my wallet can't handle it. I still gotta buy Century Wing Sr-71.

Landor is a harder find, also I think that that livery is way much prettier that the actual Union Flag, but if price is the issue the G-BOAF is at a great price here: Hogan British Airways Aérospatiale / BAe Concorde G-BOAF 1:200

Plus there's a 9% discount for DAC members. coupon code DAC1.

If u really love Landor livery and still dont have any one, go for Landor. If not, i voted for Union G-BOAF by history of itself as last flight of Concorde.

In all reality the Landor is more "valuable" right?

Also I noticed the canard wings are a little bit further in relation to the canopy compared to a modern day release. Especially if you see how the canard wings are way past the triangle-shaped window on the Landor compared to the Union livery. Am i right about that?

So doesn't that mean the G-BOAF is more accurate since the canard wings are a bit too far ahead anyway on Hogan Concords?

OMG, I just bought the Landor one, again, G-BOAG in the current livery, and Air France's D and F .... F-BVFD and FF or whatever the hell it is!!

So, with my new Landor (G - BOAE), which this time I will NOT break, I will have it, and I can then play about with my current broken Landor, and change its registration to either G - BOAC, or G-BOAD!

Great, eh??

Yes, I will soon take delivery of:

G - BOAE (Landor, again)
G - BOAG in the current BA livery
Air France's 'A',
'B',
'D'
and 'F'.

I already have:

G - BOAA in the Negus 'British' garb,
G - BOAE in Landor, hence the 'again' bit,
G - BOAF in the current BA livery
Air France's 'SB' in the old Air France livery
and
Air France's 'FC' in the current old livery.

Because I broke the gear on my original Landor, I am getting another one and then with the broken one, I will look into changing it's registration to G - BOAD.

I find it oddly amusing that you lot only appear to have discovered these models relatively recently!!

If the Landor proves a success, I will see about getting others done so that I will have an entire fleet of the things! (within reason I mean).
I'd so love to get another Air France 'SB' and make it into 'SC' and get a Negus 'AA' and make it into 'DG', for example.

In fact, a Negus G-BOAB and G - BOAC could also be made from the Negus 'AA' versions.

I want them to be specific liveries you see.


'Project Landor' is GO!!

Default Re: best 1:200 Concorde?

sorry for bumping up this thread again, but I'm having some trouble finding a good condition Hogan Concorde. I did receive one G-BOAF but it had a few paint scratches so I had to return it. I was going to go for the G-BOAC. So my question is, what made you choose the Concorde you wanted?

Personally I narrowed it down between the AF and AC because:
The B-GOAF- was the last concorde to ever fly. It was the first to be painted with the Utopia livery and the first to return to flight.

My second pick was the G-BOAC because it was the first concorde delivered to BA. It was considered British Airway's flagship. It's the oldest Concorde in the BA fleet. BOAC were also the initials of the British Overseas Aiways Corporation.

So is there any other significant Concordes like the G-BOAA, G-BOAB...etc?
I know the G-BOAD is also pretty significant, it holds the speed record for the Concorde if i remember correctly.

I got the Landor livery (G-BOAE) because of two reasons
1. The Landor livery was the most elegant livery BA ever had.
2. This particular one has a lot more details on wings and fuselage.
The new current BA livery is plain.
For a long time I was looking for the AF (F-BTSC) – this one crashed in Paris in 2000.
Very hard to find this one…but I’m still looking.

I bought the Landor (BOAE) and Red Tail (BOAA) because they're different from the Union Jack tail. I'm still going buy a few more, but its on the backburner while I catch up on other 200 scales. The only one I would consider buying right away is the Air France delivery colors...but only if I can afford it.

I was going to get the Landor but I felt it's cockpit window placement was less accurate compared to the current BA livery. See my post here

Does anyone know if Hogan is still producing these Concorde models or is it whatever is left of the market from this limited production back in 2005 still being circled around?

Did they ever actually MAKE the model of SC?? the production was stopped.

Anyway as regards to quality, yes, I have had problems too, it seems from what I can gather that the ones for sale now are the last dregs, so, no, Hogan doesn't make them any more.


Gawd!, am I the only person here who finds Landor boring?? When I have my fleet made up, I'll only have 2 of them (and 2 Kingsway). Always preferred Negus, don't know why.
Must be all that RED.


Doug, who has ELEVEN Hogan Concordes, and still growing.

I only have one - BOAG - and I bought that one specifically because it is on display here in Seattle and I was able to physically tour the inside of it. Very emotionally moving experience. (Yes, I cried!)

Yea I finally got around into getting my Concorde before they all run out. I got this lovely bird from JustPlaneFun, real nice people and they were able to price match it to any competitors. I got mine for 64.55 including shipping.

I end up getting the G-BOAD (Alpha-Delta) for its historic value. If memory serves me correctly, the Alpha-Delta remains the fastest and highest-flying airliner in existence. It is the world record holder for the round the world in both directions and fastest Atlantic crossing in both directions. And it was the only BA Concorde to operate under 2 airlines (Singapore Airline). Well here's some pics:







I even made my own screen protector in the exact shape of the base so the clear stand doesn't get scratched as I slightly adjust the position on the model

HI Guy's, "Aviation Retail Direct" still have plenty of these Hogan Concorde's in stock, it may be worth giving them a ring. Stevec...

Congratulations on your purchase of BOAD!! I hope you love it as much as I love my BOAG. I chose BOAG because I've been on it and I have the first flight certification signed by the pilots. I'd like to get the Landor and Red Tail versions someday.

For a long time I was looking for the AF (F-BTSC) – this one crashed in Paris in 2000.
Very hard to find this one…but I’m still looking.
You will never see the F-BTSC as a model.

Good to hear you wound up with (at least) one that you can associate with. Mine, I've either seen close up or been in the originals. We all associate one way or another, eh?

All sorts of confusing Concorde records:
"Concorde F-BTSD (serial number 13), which entered the company’s fleet on 9 May 1980, holds the highest number of records: the speed record for a commercial airliner flying westward around the world, in October 1992, and the round-the-world speed record in the eastward direction in August 1995, three years later. The aircraft has made 11 round-the-world flights and totalled 12,974 hours in the course of its 5,136 flights." -- Source: Heritageconcorde.com
Your memory may serve you right.

Thanks for the help folks, I made up my mind with what I would like in the near future - Air France F-BTSD and British Airways G-BOAC( or G-BOAD if I don't find the first one)- since I'm the biggest fan of B.O.A.C
