Default Diecast A380's

Hi All

Having followed this forum for some time I thought I would join in as it seems a friendly place with relevant and interesting topics unlike many other online forums!

When the GJ a380 Emirates was launched it was a big seller but I wonder, with the size and cost of these diecast behemoths, will there be a need to be selective for many collectors. Given there will likely be at least 3 of these out before Christmas, which do you guys reckon will sell best out of LH, BA and SQ?

All the best, Jez

My (uneducated) guess will be LH will sell-out in 5 minutes of hitting the shops and the BA following quick on it's heals . . . especially in the UK, as it is HIGHLY anticipated. The SQ -- about 30 seconds after the BA.

I predict a raving success for these. Then on to the Airfrance one!

I'm holding out for the Airfrance A380. But I will surely be tempted to pick up the BA. (I have the JC Wings A<380.) Those will likely be it for me.

All three of them will sell out! No question about it. However, it will depend on the QTY of the production runs as to how fast they sell out. GJ are doing LH and will do BA & JC Wings will do SQ. The question is how many units of each carrier from the manufacturers, not many I expect in diecast! A different story for plastic Hogan / Herpa / & Skymarks
