So, 2019 is wrapping up. The ones I have left on pre-order will not be contenders for my favorite new model of 2019. My favorite is the UPS DC-8 and an honorable mention is the JAL 767 Mickey's 90th. What's everyone else?
It’s been a slow year for me model-wise, as I pretty much have everything I want to collect. Looking back on this year, I’d have to say my favorite purchase is the JC Wings AA 767-200. Waited forever for a standard livery release.

I haven't really decided what my best of 2019 is yet. Still have a little over a month and a black Friday sale I'm going to which could yield something great. So far I'd have to say the Westjet Dreamliner is my favourite so far. Also doesn't help that most of my models are customs haha
All of them that I bought! Probably the IF Airport 75 Columbia 747 post collision, the JC American 762, and a special model Crownvic graciously offered for sale to me knowing I really liked this airline and kept asking for a Mfg. to do it in various Air Frames...mainly 747! Also wanted it to be done in 737, DC-8, and Caravelle, but now that I have the 747 it is just all extra gravy at this point!
Not even trying to be a smart *** but I was so excited to buy the JCW United tulip 747 flaps down. It will be my first flaps model, and I was actively searching for the UA blue tulip 747 by Inflight. But the JCW version was announced, and i thought it would be superior in every way. I just hope it is at least a best delivered model of 2020.
Mine has to my AC200 CPA DC-8-43. Brilliant, in spite of a couple of minor niggles. Seriously looks like the real thing shrunk down, and I saw plenty of these at Vancouver when I was a kid plane-spotter! I've been hoping for this particular model for quite a number of years. A tip of the hat to Andrew, as the spaghetti-script title 'Canadian Pacific' on this is also the most accurate (for this era) I have ever seen in the diecast aircraft world. 100% perfect. Period.

I think I will go with the Gemini Delta A310 and Gemini Aero California DC-9. I'm not actually sure the Aero California was a 2019 release, but I got it this year when I found one in a hobby shop unexpectedly.
