For me also Lufthansa 747-8 in regular colors.
425 USD with 500 shipping is too much for me.

Skyline northwest BAe jetstream 31 is my #1. Also a reasonably priced falcon trijet diecast

At the moment, the InFlight200 Eastern Air Lines polished L-1011. I should have picked it up when it was on preorder, but of course I was stupid.

JAL 747-400 "Arc of the Sun" livery from 2002-2011 in diecast (ie Inflight, GJ, etc).

Cannot seem to find anything beyond the Hawaii 50yr anniversary model (not the version I flew).

I have to say that I have been pretty lucky and have either found most of my hard-to-find's or they have been re-released or made by someone else. I have been on a 747 kick the last year or so and just have a couple more I would like to add, and then just wait to see what else will be released in the future.

I also am pretty lucky in that I got into 1/200 diecast right around when it started to really pickup. I've been fortunate where I've been lucky enough to buy just about everything I wanted when it got released. I will say, though, that I would absolutely love a re-release of a 757 Delta widget. I had one when it was new and it got rot. Seems like I'm not the only one where that happened to so now I'm just waiting for a new version.

1/200 Herpa Czech Airlines A321-100 Preassembled plastic. I have the A320 which is pretty hard to find but this A321 is just the one that keeps me awake.



Aviation 200 Czech Airlines Tu-154 (1980's cs) I always seem to miss it in the auctions.



I really would love a Herpa Malev Tu-154, but for me it isn't worth the $300 I've seen them go for.


Cheers

It took me a long while but got a Herpa die cast Lufthansa B744. But could never find a Gemini B748, except for crazy eBay prices.

Was extremely lucky to find the Retro B748 from a third party Amazon seller. But now that the B748 is coming out in new livery I can live in peace.

Agreed. GJ needs to do another run of the classics. They have beautiful moulds for both the 722 and 752, but they don't even use them. Price gougers are dictating the going rates of the most wanted "retired" models which in turn creates bad blood between consumer and manufacturer. You've got a guaranteed sale, so do something with it.

Either you or Western Models/Jet-X who use the same mould.

Well since this thread is turning into a found thread guys, I was looking for a Boeing house 747SP. A big thank you to AirCal. Not only did I find a IF2747SP0515 I also found a bonus IF747SP0117 NASA SOFIA both in the same model shop. Both models new in box and as released in 2015 by Inflight. How rare is that? Fast shipping and models well packed. Detailed reviews soon

I was looking for that CSA model as well, and probably for just as long as you. Thay are very are, I bid on one in Germany last year but lost, the I stumbled across one on Kijiji last winter.
You just never know when and where one may show up, Good Luck.

I am looking for this beautiful Tristar aswell, but I'm pretty sure this could be re released sooner then you think. Inflight is putting out quite some Tristars lately so it's only a matter of time.. Look at the amount of times they re released the 747-100 city of Everet in house colors.

Well since you asked, I missed the Herpa Lufthansa 737-200 released last year. See my signature for details
Hopefully Herpa will release another Lufthansa, different registration in the not to distant future.
You have one, don't you? Hint, Hint :)
