Default No Qatar B77W

Hi Everyone
I am really disappointed there hasn't been a Qatar B77W released by either JCW or Gemini.
Does anyone know of a likely reason why we haven't seen one?
They are a major user of the aircraft.
On the bright side there have been some great releases lately, I just wish we would see the Qatar B77W make it to the public.

We were told by a good source on here last year that the Qatar 777 in Barca special livery was going to get done. I agree with you it is odd that no 777 has been done to date.

That would be awesome, have flown on that very aircraft. A7-BAE
They are a great airline to travel with and use them often.
Thanks for the info, I hope you are correct.

I hear you man, I'm also a big fan of Qatar Airways, I would love to someday see an 1:200 scale 777-300 model in that beautiful Qatar livery!

I never cared much for the Emirates 777-300 but this Qatar 777-300 is on the other hand a completely different story...

The one on the left is taken from my home town. I would be happy with either livery or both as I have flown on them many times.
How about it Marcus?

That was me when I had a little credibility lol..it's still on the docket to be done. I totally support the idea of any Qatar 777-300.. Imagine my surprise when showing up for a short haul flight from Doha to Dubai recently and we were suppose to be on an older worn out A320 and low and behold our ride was a factory fresh 777 on a first time familiarization revenue flight!

Probably hasn't been done because the airline hasn't ordered it.

Personally, I would enjoy seeing the delivery livery. And as stated in an earlier thread, I also want to see the three Asian Games A330s produced in diecast.

Qatar hasn't and doesn't order 1:200 diecast models. The cost would be too expensive. The only 1:200 models they actually place orders for are from Risesoon (including the Barcelona 773) which they sell at Doha airport and distribute amongst agents and offices.

They ordered the A380 and the C-17 in Qatar livery from Gemini.
