Default March arrivals QANTAS, AUSTRALIA ASIA,TAA & CATHAY

Hi fellow collectors,

These new arrivals landed yesterday in picture 1
JC TAA DC3 VH-SBA
IF AUSTRALIA ASIA 747SP VH-EAA (#4 OF 60)
IF QANTAS 747SP VH-EAB (#49 OF 60)
BB CATHAY 747-367 VR-HII
Worthy of note is two new special model boxes for Limited 60 units Qantas SP & Australia Asia SP they also have their own IF Artwork numbers and do have numbered cards. Both stating a production run of 60! I also have uploaded a shot of a CX 747-200 and CX 747-300. The Cathay 747-3 is my second 747-3 as the manufactures have only made a few models of that type. the CX 747-3 is stunning
Enjoy

Yes you did hear that and the CX models are in there current colours & VR-HOT with Union Jack on tail. Guys also note the change in "The Swire Group" flags between the 747-2 & the 747-3. Clue if you cant see it on the model look at the box behind.

and for you jsjscd9a here goes................

the first snap shot of the a 2007 to current Qantas fleet awaiting the JC wings 767-300 Qantas Freight and there is more to come from 2007 back to earlier liveries
this is just a small sample wait till I post all all VH - coming soon Just waiting for JC Wings 767-300's and GJ Virgin Australia Embraer 190AR and Virgin Australia n/c 777

Hi Steve (Aussiejets),
Lucky you to have the Qantas 747SP (EAB), you must have a good contact somewhere. I ordered mine thru UK but they stuff up and still waiting for the
outcome...probably not going to have the luck to own one. It must be all gone by now...So Inflight changed their mind to run 60 pieces instead of original 48 on this.

Hu told me about your problem. I purchased my models from CAM in Melbourne if you ring Terry you might be in luck. As for the increase from 48 to 60 units we can only speculate. I work for a plastics manufacturer and I can tell you production is always planned full stop, and so I feel this was always Inflight's intention to manufacture 60 units of each. I suspect the QTY on the emails out to the retailers was perhaps wrong. Who knows! wish you luck getting your model.

You need the risesoon f1 and the aboriginal birds.

I might get my QF fleet of roughly 16 birds out this weekend for a family shot.

He only showing his current QF 2007 colour.....he probably need another table for the older QF colour....he also got one of the rarest IF mould F1 as well.....

Nice arrival Steve, very interested to check out the 2 new SP......and the boxes

.....nice.....nice......very impressive line up Steve, esp .if this is the tip of your QF "iceburg".......you are gonna need a bigger dining table ......so you have the IF F1 do you?.....id like to see some photo's of that ......I have the Risesoon only of it......

....i have all those 2007s sans the Q-link 400s and a couple of the B737s.....it will be interesting/nice to see if someone brings out the "Bring It On" coloured B737......

......I dont go much for the diff. rego's on models esp. if the aircraft looks identical to eachother ..........but more power to you if you do......

......looking forward to your 1990s and 1970s coloured fleets........I have the elusive crown in my 1990 fleet enroute- the IF200 B744 all red ....plus I have the IF200 B744 "City of Perth" as well as a rare B743 (no gear) in QF 1990s standard colours too.....I wouldnt mind if Hogan or IF released this one though......plus the 1990s coloured A330-300 (which are still flying around nowadays) would be a nice edition to the 1990s line up.......

.......be nice to see your QF line up too there Lance .....bring em on buddy.........

ps- my VA current colours is nearing completion.....got 3 versions of the B773ER (MM, stang-custom die-cast, and a soon-to-be-released RS ver) ....just needing the EMB-190 (looks really nice)........

Hi Steve, many thanks for the info..you probably are the biggest VH rego collector in Syd and QF707 is the King in Mel for QF. By the way, need to go Hobbyco this week to check out if the new Skymarks QF B747-400 1/200 Boxing Kangaroo is out yet or not....too many models want to buy.....

Hi Joe & Willy on your last replies to this thread
Joe I sold you the Risesoon QF1 model so I know you got it, and the only reason I sold it and the other rare Scalecraft to Driverman is beacuse I managed to get a diecast model of the same rego. I am not going to post just yet of QF 1984 to 2007 becasuse of new arrivals pending, but you can click on my user cp and see my previous threads thread starter)which will show you All three QF1's I had at the same time. Willy already aware of the QF747-4 in the Boxing Kangaroo Risesoon/Skymarks VH-OJU (refer to Airliners.net for photos)which carried Aussies to and from the 2012 London games and I will be getting it too, which I did not know about when I posted this thread. I will post fleet photos all VH in late April when all of the ships have come back to the shore

Finally got mine (QFB747SP VH-EAB) and Special Thanks to Craig (Tiger320).
This is a rare model (60 pieces) that no one want to miss out.

Just love those CX 747's in the old colour scheme. Now we just need the 747-400 in the green scheme to complete the set.

......I actually had two Risesoon Qantas F1s but sold one off (the one that had the lesser detail on it).....it was strange too- one had a fixed/attached tail to the fuselage and the other had a tail that could be removed .....maybe Risesoon made two versions of these?.......I'd love to see pics of this new 1:200 Skymarks Boxing Roo (Olympics 2012) colours B744 if anyone would care to post some.......and how much......?
