I don't think JAL has ever had any Concorde in its fleet.

Both models look great Simon. El Al looks very nice indeed and is my pick out of the two. Thanks for posting

The El Al looks great, almost prefect, but it definitely has that 'Inflight200 forehead' which they seem to hit unfortunate models from time to time, after all these years and many good releases, you'd think IF would have cracked it consistency wise by now...sigh. Still, great livery!
I love the JAL livery on the Concorde and in fact just picked up an IF200 Convair 880 in these colours with the chrome belly and wings, so I'll be happy enough with that, not gone down the fantasy or what if Concorde route myself.
Thanks for the detailed photos tho mate!

Cheers Andy,
I think the El Al livery looks great and I have the old livery too, so will look great together. I like the old livery's on the Concorde and have quite a few fantasy one's now.

No worries Simon, I am still looking forward to picking mine up - always been a fan of El Al and I have the previous livery too.
To be fair, of all the fantasy liveries available on the Concorde, personally I think this JAL scheme is by far and away the best. If only a 747 had been painted up on those colours...still, I'm looking forward to the CV-880 arriving.

You got much else on order at the moment? I'm guessing these came from ARD? I've also got the Air India and Firefighting 747s on order, really can't wait for the latter.

Yes they were from ARD Andy. I haven't got much on order as i'm cutting back due to the recent price increases, but I do have the Air India 747 and Gulf Air 777. I would like the JCW BA Victorious 747 but again the price rises might put me off.

Hmm, I might pick the El Al up. I didn't buy the previous El Al, due to the various issues with the model's accuracy (wrong shade of blue to start with), but this one looks pretty darn good.

@ Simon65

Very nice models man, love that B744 a lot very stylish
The JAL Concorde looks nice with that livery even tho I also thoughts there was a JAL Concorde with the later aged livery.

Well actually JAL did order Concorde as did many others, they were one of many than cancelled their order for Concorde, here a site explaining this
CONCORDE SST :ORDERS

JAL had 3 orders, but cancelled them, so that making this not really a fantasy livery

Here more about the Iranian Concorde and at the bottom of the page also shows other cancelled liveries

I know a lot were ordered then cancelled, I have some of them. I also like the Sabena and the Air India too, I may add them if they are done.
