Default Well, cargo is still doing well

It's been a rough year for aviation but at least cargo is doing exceptionally well. Just took some photos because I mean, what else is there to do these days...








And a throwback to world that no longer exists.

Of course you always have the best freighters to display! Wish we could get some more FedEx feeders, like a C208, in 200 scale. Also missing ABX and Polar/Atlas. It’s be nice to get an Amazon Prime 767 soon as well in 200. You’re right about there being nothing else to do though, keep the pics coming!

Love the freighters. I guess with all the passenger airplanes not carrying belly cargo, the cargo airlines must be off the rails busy.

The USPS is a SM200. They were small batches made with decals. I’ve been thinking about doing a -200 as I have the decals for it but have never used them. The Airborne was a custom I did.

The Federal Express 727, is that the last 727 built? I know it has been done in 200 scale, just not sure if it is that model? I believe US Air got the last passenger version.

Allways nice to take pics outside. Very natural lighting and looks very sharp indeed. Nothing beats the sun!

Well... better say "The sun beats everything"

Sunlight is the biggest Danger for models and therefore I would NEVER put them in direct sunlight

Thumbs up Re: Well, cargo is still doing well

I fancy the FedEx livery. Crisp and smart. I have no room to do cargo, but if I did, it would be FedEx.


Nice photos!!!
