Default Boeing 747-8 Models

One of my all time favorite aircraft (other than the McDonnelll Douglass MD-11) is the new Boeing 747-8. I have the Hogan 1/200 747-8F demonstrator, and its a fine model. But I was wondering if anyone knew of a nicer or cheaper, or anyother company that makes a 1/200 747-8I or F. Also, does anyone own the model? What's your opinion on it? Any comparisons to the Hogan one? Thanks!

Herpa has released the 747-8I DLH (Reg. D-ABYA) and the 747-8R7F CLX, both of which I've been able to land from Medy on eBay for a reasonable price ($60-70 range) I still have a hard time paying diecast prices for resin/plastic so if your patient, there are still some good deals out there. I'm Still looking for the NCA 747-8F as well as the ground version of the Boeing Flight Test livery (L/N1420-RC501).

So, until an acceptable diecast mould can be produced for the -8's new wing, struts and GEnx-2B67/PG01 (PIP) Engines w/ chevroned T/R's, Herpa and Hogans are the best renditions we have thus far. Unfortunately, the -8F is the only 1:1 that's selling so liveries will be somewhat limited, IMHO but I could be wrong though.

Skymarks makes a Lufthansa 747-8i D-ABYA also. It has quite a bit less detail than the Hogan or Herpa models, but it is cheaper. Herpa makes the Lufthanse 747-8i, and quite a few 747-8 cargo models, but is the most expensive.

Also, the Herpa and Skymarks models have the straight 'ground configuration' wings, while the Hogan has the over-exagerated curved 'in flight' wings.

I think I remember seeing somewhere on this forum that there is a diecast 747-8 being planned too. Anyone have any updates?

Well I have 4 of these B747-8, intercontinetal and freighter. I prefer the Herpa version as they have ground configurated wings and also they have aerials. The Hogan is nicely done but you might not like the overflexed wings.

Here some old pictures:

The Gemini Lufthansas are nice, but now rare and pricey. I was lucky to find the Retro Livery for a fair price on Amazon a few months back.

There is a current livery one for sale on fleabay, but they're asking something like $350 plus shipping.

I thought that the BA Cargo was announced as a GJ but not JC. Was either ever delivered?
