Default Looking for 1:200 Scale Delta Boeing 747-400 N661US

With the first Boeing 747-400, N661US, going on display at the Delta Heritage Museum, I would love to have a 1:200-scale model of that aircraft. (I already have the 1:500-scale Herpa version of N661US and like it very much.) I noticed one example on eBay, Skymarks, item SKR508, in which the photo shows the N661US registration, rather than the usual N665US.


True to Fleabay, the item lists for $89.99 plus shipping, which is an awful lot of money for a Skymarks model. However, When I search for SKR508, I come up with many examples of Delta 747-400 N665US (for a lot less money), but the "magical" N661US remains elusive. Is this a rare model? Did Skymarks really produce a model of this very aircraft? Even the Daron site has no mention of ship N661US. If anyone has this model for sale or knows where I could find one at a more reasonable price, I would be grateful! Thank you!

Greetings, dlberek

Just an FYI that you may want to use the For Sale/Trade/Swap....Wanted (1:200) section on the DAC. If you navigate to the upper area on this forum, you will see the particular section.

Cheers! All the best with finding your wanted model. T7

If DIMA is correct the N661US has not been made in Diecast 1:200

Diecast Model Aircraft (DiMA)

A bit of history with that airplane. It was the aircraft that had the hard over rudder incident at cruise over the north pacific while still with Northwest.. The pilots took turns standing on the opposite direction pedal,and they limped her down to Anchorage. I believe it was a "Mayday" episode. Fortunately,no loss of life. Frayed nerves and very sore and tired pilots. Welcome to the forum.

HERPA Has made this model in the DELTA livery as I Have one in my collection, but it has not been made in die cast, I also have the same model in the last NORTHWEST livery made by HOGAN, hope this helps.
