Default If200 ua 787?

Since when did Inflight release the UA 787? Eztoys has it on their website as available.

Also, who has the best 787 mold?

Default Inflights mould but BBox packaging

They have had this item in stock since Jan of this year. Pretty nice model IMHO! I still will get the Herpa as well when it comes out IF it is as detailed as there Air India 787 was I bought last month.

But how come it isn't listed on inflight's website? Also, how is the IF mold? As far as I know there are two different molds, this and the Phoenix one. Which is more accurate?

Now that explains why I couldn't find it on inflight's website.

Will probably order that model because next month I will be on my first 787 between DEN-IAH. Really excited to finally fly on the 787.

iirc, phoenix was voted the best by about 2/3rd majority. I prefer phx too!! also depends whether you prefer flexed wings, PHX,, or flat wings IF/JC!!

Yeah, but there really isn't a choice if I want the UA 787.

I think this was a BlueBox type release.....who knows. But I got this model last week and it's super nice! I am really happy with it, and was surprised to find out that it comes with a nice Gemini 200 type wood display stand. All of the pictures I saw before were a plastic Herpa type stand.

Here are some photos.

I just purchased the United B787 in the 1:200 scale and a guy named John told me that this version is not even available here In America, however, a couple of dealers have this model but without the wood stand.Purchased mine on eBay from Europe and a dealer from China has this model as well.

I'm that guy! Welcome to DA C. Is the one you are buying have the stand included? Nice YouTube vids of your last purchases at Troys on Friday.
