Default Another SQ Tropical? (from IF200)

IF200 announced SPL. Now that we have IF, JC, JFox (?); which 1 to order? or they will be plenty available in the market because of oversupply?

No...the IF you are seeing is actually JFox. I assume you saw this at Waffle? Is being listed as IF because it's on the IF mould. Jetway listed this model today for pre-order as well, but as JFox.

There are only 2 releases
JC Wings (NEW mould)
JFox (Inflight mould)

I was a bit puzzled myself as well. I know of a Michael J. Fox, hee hee!

I've been off the radar the past 2 weeks, but something tells me it's related to Inflight 200. Based on Travsuz post above. T7

From what I have read it's a spin off of Inflight for unlicensed models. Like BlueBox is to JC Wings.

The two 747's by JFox are Inflight models.

well I think Marcus said JC are doing 499 of SPL alone. so with BLUEBOX and J/FOX/IF releases there should be around 1000 of these or MORE!!! but only 288 of SPK are being done. think I will order just SPK and hope to get SPL in a collection/blowout sale!!

JFOX releases are INFLIGHT mould.

BLUEBOX are JC's NEW mould.

The actual numbers according to Marcus' announcement are 499 of -SPL and 288 of -SPK, 787 in total. Considering IF (JFox) usually does total releases of around 280, then JFox will be adding more of -SPL to the total, there should be plenty of BOTH models to go around. Probably more than 1,000 total from both manufacturers if you count both reg. nos. and combine the totals.

With that many on the market, I don't think this would be a good model to double up on as an investment.

Its gotta be a BBOX bird for me if its true that the engines will be PWs, this is a no brainier, but still waiting for our british retailers to put these up for order. As for the reg, I'm not too fussed, one tropical bird will be enough for me!
