For a second, just looking at the title, I thought 1:200 ANA Techno Marine 744 is here.....it will be definitely needed to match the younger brother 1:200 ANA 767 Marine......then realized it's only a dream......

Glad to see another BA fan posting..

Both great models, but what happened to the "BRITISH AIRWAYS" font on BBAG? It looks too thin. Maybe because of the flash?

I did not know there was a more recent release. Mine is the old one. I could not resist copying your pic as I was dusting off my tristar shelves when I saw it!

That Northwest is indeed a beauty! I have 17 DC10's at the moment (metal) and 7 Herpa's (plastic but a very nice mold).
