Default Concorde - Time for something new

I have two Hogan Concorde's and while I really appreciate them, wouldn't it be great if a manufacturer stepped up and re-invented this iconic model with super detailed version.

Gemini lead the way with detail and quality - just imagine a Gemini Concorde!

The TU-144 with configurable nose and canards is coming this year from Herpa if one is to believe their Nuremberg Fair announcements...

Well in reference to Hogan's Concorde models, I doubt there will be any re-releases or tweaked molds as all the past models released were commissioned by Socatec, including (I think) the BA models and Hogan as of now has no more affiliation with Socatec and will no longer be producing any models for them.

Thank you Culture, I wasn't aware of that airplane being announced. Do you have any pictures from the toy fair?
With so many manufacturers creating esoteric airplanes, it would be great to see them get involved with a few civil airliners as well.

My Corgi BOAC Concorde from 1972 had a moveable nose. It should be possible in the 21st Century for this to happen.

I agree that it would be nice for a 1/200 Herpa TU144, and if at some future date, they could manage a 1/200 TU114, well that would be nice too

As much as I'd like a more detailled Concorde (maybe with a nose-down option), Hogan's is pretty decent for now and I'd prefer something new, like a CV-880/990, Tu-104, or Caravelle 10B/12, for example.

Yes but is it possible to have it movable in away that doesnt distract from the quality and refinement that the collector community would be happy with?? Im not sure...

well i have an HISTORIC MODELS landtr concorde. even rarer than hogan. only ever seen this one. not sure how accurate the mould is, but has bolder priting than the hogan. what's THIS worth now if the hogan sold for £1000.00 +?



















schabak250 did some concordes with drooping noses. pics were taken with my old 5mp cameraphone.

As topsox's concordes have shown, im settling on this being out of reach and now just hoping for the new Concordes that are rumoured to be on the horizon

Default Re: Concorde - Time for something new

As Robert's 250th scale Concordes display, a simple hinged nose does not give an accurate drooped down model. Lots of gaps. The real thing had sliding panels I think to make a tight fit in both positions. Doubt that'll work in 200 scale. Old Western's 144 had two nose options (i.e. up and down), But you could only buy it with the one you chose. Reason being (and don't ask me why) the hole drilled in to the front of fuselage to take the connector plug needed to be different angle for each version, so not interchangable. Wondering if New Western Models will bring out the 144 ?

To be honest, probably not, having seen the 1/250 i guess 1/200 is still a bit small to get the level of detail up to a decent standard with a snug fitting sliding windshield

I saw that in their latest issue of Wingsworld magazine - they had one picture, I will scan it when I am back from my trip.

The plug connector is the only real option if nose positions are important. Honestly, I'm perfectly happy with how my Hogan AF Concordes look. Sierra-Delta looks just as it does on display at Le Bourget.

If some other manufacturer wants to take Concorde up, I'm fine with how Hogan did it. The landing gear is SUPERBLY detailed/engineered, and everything else is handled in a refined manner. Only a couple of small niggles, AFAIK.

I too have that Corgi Concorde -- mine being a noss minter BOAC 1969 one. Noooooooooo. Nobody wants a movable nose like that.
