Default Hogan models opinions........

I'm thinking of getting a couple of these models. What is the general opinion of this range?

Many thanks.

I had a few Hogan Models, but mostly replaced them with other more detailed brands once I got into collecting more seriously.
For me the models do not have enough detail, but that is obviously reflected in a lower price.

Some hogan's are good, others as Maarlandair said are less. MD11 for instance is very good from them.

I have a few of their Southwest Airlines 737's. They are decent display models. Lacking some detail. But acceptable by most people's standards for a snapfit model.

Hogan are plastic display models. This usually excludes accessory details such as antennae etc.! Hogan has had the best and most accurate moulds among all 1/200 manufacturers incl. a very decent and accurate printing of windshield and cabin windows/doors as well as the airline livery. The undercarriage would be offered separately (not expensive). I still have a couple of Hogan models due to the perfect moulding (Lufthansa A340-300, A340-600 and a few others).

Very often Hogan models are basic but the shape of the aircraft is nicely reproduced.

Despite a very good Inflight A 340 which is the best die cast model ever produced of this aircraft, the snap fit Hogan model has still something more : a better stabilizer with an accurate dihedral.
That said, I have both models, I love them both and it is not a negative comment about the Inflight model.

In the past, Hogan made models exclusively for the Japanese market, I have an ANA B 747-400 bought during one of my visits to Tokyo some twenty years ago.
Simply gorgeous, very close to what we can see on a Herpa Premium model.

It all depends on what Hogan is requested to do, they are capable of the best.

I also dig Hogans. Their A300s and MD11s are really really nice, very detailed and come with antennas. Better than the diecast versions IMHO.

I also like their 747 and their 737 mold. The A330/340 molds are also really good.

Lack of detail is an issue, still looking for some detailing decals to pimp some models.

I currently own a Hogan Lufthansa 748i in retro livery, and I mainly bought because I wanted a souvenir from visiting the Red Caboose in NYC.

It's a lovely display model, but the only gripe I have with some of the Hogan models, like this one, are the sweeping wings in flight mode. I think it might have been better if a non-sweeping option was available also, but as I mentioned, they do make great display models. Great value IMO.

I have their KLM Cargo B744. It looks nice with the die cast cargo liners. Just a little less detail as others have posted.

I agree. I only have a few military (P-3, S-3, F/A-18), but think they are very good. Can't speak for the Hogan airliners.

I have the AF, TAA, and China Airlines (soon to be PAL old livery "Love Bus") A300s; Delta (widget) and KLM MD-11s; Qatar and Kuwait C-17s. and a Continental 767-400. except for the 767 which I added strakes and antennas, these models come with landing gears, antennas and engine strakes. I am still ecstatic everytime I look at them.

I have several Hogan models and I think they have some of the best mould. Particularry A330/340 series remain for me the best. I have the whole Air France series, released in collaboration with Socatec, this remain a beauty for me, plastic or not plastic.

A few Hogan models have a place in my mostly diecast collection.

- Air India Boeing 787-8 (with on-ground wings).
- British Airways Boeing 777-300ER.
- Singapore Airlines A380-800 which I believe is a Hogan mould. It is
a good candidate for some detailing.

I like the metal offerings from Hogan; China Airlines Caravelle, a couple ANA 737's, and a few others all in 200 scale.
