Default Hope to see a 717!

Now that Delta has officially announced that they are acquring the 717s, it would be great to see a mould in 1/200 diecast! I would also love to see it in Hawaiian, AirTran old and new colors, TWA, and Midwest to name a few!

A good version in 1/400 would be nice, too. (Dragon's is gone and dead, and they lost the Delta license years ago---GJ's 717 mold is one of their worst molds, and I refuse to buy such an ugly model of such a nice-looking plane)

Sad that Dragon made the short-lived TWA/AA bare-metal hybrid abomination, and never actual TWA. We really need *good* models of TWA, AirTran, and now Delta, as they are(were) the largest operators by far.

TWA 717 would be great! Afterall, if I remember correctly they were the 2nd largest operator of the 717.

A Gemini200 717-200 in AirTran's colours would earn an immediate preorder from me...

So a DC-9-30 proportion fuselage lives on through the 717 at DL~ That's good news for me. Knew she had legs.
