What do you mean the antennas are missing? Do you mean the antennas on the under fuselage get lost during shipping? Or you just meant that this version of inflight200 missed some of the antennas that appear on the real 747 counterpart?

The latter - nearly all the new die-cast 1:200 747's are being made without the full set of antennas and masts that the old mold had. Inflight also never made the SATCOM "hump" that exists toward the rear fuselage (while Inflight does put it on other models, for some reason, never done on their 747's). Certain JCWings 747's correctly replicates the shape.

Thank you for the reply! It is really sad to see a great die cast model without the important details....

Yeah, I'm not sure why the diecast 1:200 747's are being made with such sparse amount of details compared to other models of similar size and complexity.

Very very nice looking models. I just flew a KLM 744 from SFO to AMS a couple weeks ago and need to add it to my collection. I'm debating between the IF version and the Hogan versions. The hogan obviously has less detail, but it's also significantly less expensive. I usually try to go with metal when I can, has anyone compared the IF to the Hogans??
