Default first model released for each manufacturer

Asking for some help from the long time collectors.

What was the first diecast model airplane Inflight200, Gemini made and sold?

If anyone knows the same for Small World, JC Wings, Western Models I'd be interested to know as well.

Thank you

Happy New Year

On the Inflight website this one appears to be the oldest I have found.

If I remember well, the first Western Models, I mean "Old Western Models" was the Bristol Freighter, twenty years ago, available exclusively at CAM, Skyline Hotel.

I'm sure you know where this hotel is !

Interesting topic! Funny to see gemini started in 2007. The year I started to collect 1/200 models. What was the first Herpa release? DC-8, 727?

The first Herpa Premium were released in 1999.

But always if I remember well, standard plastic Herpa and Hogan plastic models were available a little bit before.

I was always into 1:400 models before i transitioned to collecting 1:200 mostly from Gemini 200, i believe around 2007 or 2008 i purchased my very first models from them, all 757's at the time... i also remember one online retailer having plentiful of the early Gemini 200 757 models in the Delta, United, American & Northwest Orient liveries on sale for around $60 each.. now at the moment your lucky to find yourself the sought after Delta widget 757 on eBay for no less than $300!!

The first mass produced Diecast 1:200 was the Herpa Boeing 727 in LH early colors.

Right, Jean-Pierre, but they are made using the older moulds Herpa built for Lufthansa (LH Modell Edition) starting 1989 or 1990.
