Aeroclassics200 - your two cents....
 
...which moulds will come next. Let the speculation begin,

I would say the B707-300 or DC-8-61. But thats just me....what about you?

No real speculation, than more of a wish. Convair CV-240, so I can eventually get a late 50's one in Canadian Pacific Airlines livery. (No . . . Herpa's is a CV-340—which is 4' 6" longer). Lots of airlines used these, so there would be no shortage of classics to be made. I can still smell the ones at our airport while looking at the photo below.

707-320B would be fine .

Re: Aeroclassics200 - your two cents....
 
When you say B 707-300, you need to be more specific, the -300 never existed.

Boeing produced -320s, -320Bs and -320Cs.

Inflight makes very nice -320Bs and -320Cs, no need to have another model made by another manufacturer.
Herpa is releasing -320s which are quite good despite a fuselage a bit too fat.

I think it is time now to have a decent B 707-120, with the wing of a -120 (no glove), a proper join between the wing and the fuselage and the wing accurately positioned under the fuselage.

60 long body -120s were built all of them wearing US liveries.
Success guaranteed.

Sorry my fault. I was thinking of the -120 too, as it is based on the 720B.

I agree, Inflights -320B/C is nice, but IF200 has always (and i mean ALWAYS) had printing issues regarding printing accurate placed cheatlines. Having the 720 and the 707-138B mould in mind i would also welcome a -320B by AC200 as they brought some excellent quality to the market right from the beginning.

Re: Aeroclassics200 - your two cents....
 
Well Jean Pierre , IF 200s are not bad at all but the engines should be at least 1 mn thicker .
The aeroclassic 200 nose and 720B’s engines are finer designed and much more accurate to my eyes .
I really which another 707-328B’s AF delivery colours .

A real 707-120 / 120B would be a must have for Aeroclassic 200.
Should the Aeroclassic 720s-(A) , and 707s-(A) be engined or (re)engined with the HERPA 200 JT4-A 707 enginesímolds....I guess they would look pretty more attractive .

As much as I love new 707 variants, a F28 or decent Comet would be great too.

BAC1-11 short 200/300/400 and long 500

I'd be good with a decent Comet 1. :cool:

727-100 and -200. And please do all the Inflight 727s, with different registration numbers.

I havenít heard of anything imminent from the Dark Lord in 1/200.

aklein707 07-10-2019 01:51 AM

Re: Aeroclassics200 - your two cents....
 
That's because the Dark Lord is hard at work perfecting the next mould, which is due in August, latest, September!! It'll be a real smasher!!

'Modelutions' appears a great reference, but alas, it shows all the BAC1-11's and HS748 no longer available and they don't cover all the schemes.

B727?!?!

"...perfecting the next mould...." sounds like the mould is already existing...?
We need a 727 as a regular release and not like the GJ every few months/years.

BPanio 07-10-2019 08:34 AM

Re: Aeroclassics200 - your two cents....
 
I honestly hope they do a 737-300. Not enough of those in this scale, and he would do a Canadian North which I really want haha

What collection could possibly be complete without a Comet 1?

That's so true, this is the reason why I made my own models using the cheap Silver Classics die cast models.
