Smile Inflight new releases for April

I ordered Frontier 727-200 Arrowjet (rare bird) as a pre order in February. The release for shipping dates keep getting pushed back however I finally reached out to Inflight 200 and simply inquired if these were getting shipped to my seller (ByGoneWorld). I actually received a response that was encouraging. The response stated the model was now ready for shipment to the sellers from China and would take 4 - 6 weeks. Once received I assume the sellers will expedite the shipping to the buyers however I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico USA and the seller is in the UK so it may be an additional 2 - 4 weeks beyond that. I figure I have come this far so will still wait anxiously as this will be a limited issue. I also noticed there were several pre ordered models that had completed production and would ship as well. For all you pre order collectors there is now light at the end of the runway! Anyone else "expecting" ?

Hi, TransWorld. Yes, I'm also in for the Frontier 727-200 and am very glad to hear they'll be leaving China soon. (I also have a PSA 737-214 on pre-order and hope that one will also be on the way.)

InFlight seems to be doing a lot of older subjects. Here's hoping for a Frontier 737-200 Bow and Arrow and a Western 737-300 Bud Lite. Cheers!

Hi!

I have the Inflight 1:200 Western Airlines Boeing 720 with the Indian Head Logo and am looking for the matching Boeing 727. I also am looking for PSA 727 1:200 and TWA 727-100 Twin Globe. Good to know I am not the only one waiting on these new releases. If you go to Inflight 200 website, under new arrivals and scroll down, you will see the actual Frontier production model. Looks better than the print online and is beautiful! I am a huge fan of Albuquerque's first "Big Four" airlines prior to deregulation. TWA, Frontier, Continental and Texas International. I am trying to focus on the older color schemes and am looking for a Frontier Boeing 737-200 in the Arrowjet color scheme as well as the Texas International Pamper Jet logo on a DC-9. I think your PSA 737 choice is what I would have selected if the Frontier was never offered. Good to have a fellow collector of these Southwest US airlines to keep their memory alive! Have a pleasant evening.

Respectfully,

TransWorld1961

Thanks! I'm glad to see that someone else is also interested in older aircraft and paint schemes. (I think there are actually a great many of us out there and IF seems to understand that.)

To my knowledge, no one has yet released a Western 727 Indian Head. (I'm up for that one, if and when it gets done). I'm also hoping that we'll see a Western 737-247 Indian Head. (That's one of my Holy Grails.)

IF200 has released a Texas International DC-9-30 and a Continental DC-9-30 (black meatball). I hope that someone will release a CO DC-9-14 (black meatball). Gemini has a good Baby Nine mold and has already done a number of DC-9-14s (including a TWA twin globe), so we may get CO at some point.

Cheers!
