Default The KLM B744 list so far...

Oh my..saw today that another KLM B744 is announced..Still no of the manufacturers have done a delivery col. 744 or a 743..

Talking about over fludding the market

The list so far (metal ones only);

1. KLM B744 PH-BFW IF200 (current col.)
2. KLM B744 PH-BFP IF200 (Asia)
3. KLM B744 PH-BFI IF200 (95 years)

I am a big KLM fan and decided some years ago to collect all 1:200 KLM models but this is too much IMO

I think that's a pretty accurate list.

I agree 100% about flooding the market. I've seen, as a result of this strange market strategy, the value of my original IF200 KLM (the most expensive model in my collection by far) plummet from $800 USD or higher a couple of years ago to around $200 today.

Lucky for me, I don't buy models as investments!

Why the manufacturers are choosing to basically release the same models over and over and... again, when there are so many other un-released or under represented airlines, is hard to understand. They must see there is a market for them, although there are lots for sale on eBay, just sitting there.

Surely its a complete waste of time and money producing all these identical KLM 747s... there are so many more 744s out there that would be great to see, but its as if every new 744 announcment includes KLM...

Silly times...

Two more to add:

I believe JC has a current livery Tokyo and 95th livery Hong Kong in the works.

I for one am very happy to see so many releases. Because I really liked the new livery Tokyo from JC, I will probably be adding more of their upcoming KLMs to my collection. With all of the nice liveries coming out from JC and IF over the past few months, you can hardly claim that them manufacturing KLMs is taking away from other liveries. We are seeing Tropical, Hibiscus, Wunala, EVA, BOAC, Nalanji, Varig, Pan Am, Flying Tigers (along with a host of other 100 cargos from IF), and surely many more to come.

With the growing livery pool, these KLM releases only make the models more accessible. Due to differences in mold preference, I think that we should see things separately from manufacturer to manufacturer, instead of lumping them all together.

Yeah, me too.


Like vg747 said, I thought JC would be doing the 95 Years.
