Default Cathay Pacific 1:200 Models

My apologies if this has already been asked...this is my first post. Are there specific manufacturers that airlines are licensed with? I'm wondering about Cathay Pacific and Singapore. I wonder why there hasn't been a Gemini Jets Cathay model? I have an In Flight Cathay A340 and a JC Wings Cathay 707 on the way from Russia (is that any of you lol?), but I would absolutely LOVE to see a Gemini Cathay A350-900 or -1000. I have the Gemini Virgin A350-1000 and loved it so much much that I ordered a Gemini Philippines A350-900, awaiting delayed COVID delivery.



Should I wait longer go Cathay Pacific Gemini Jets, or look elsewhere? What are the best makers for Cathay Pacific and Singapore diecast 1:200's? Does anybody make as good of an A350 as Gemini with (new) Cathay Pacific or Singapore livery?



Thanks everybody!

I don't think you'll see GJ producing CX models. CX is very strict with licensing (and if I'm not mistaken so is Korean - uncertain about Singapore) so manufacturers like JCW produce them under the radar. I don't know what's in queue from JCW regarding future releases. Someone else should know or just do a search on here in 1:200 and the announcement threads will come up for you. (Do advanced search with "JC" in keyword(s) and "crownvic" in "find threads started by user"). CX sells models of their aircraft on their online store (I've purchased MANY from them directly over the years) but the models aren't diecast and are produced by Hogan or Herpa. There was a time when CX had pages of models for sale on their website but now there are only seven models with quite a few now out of stock.

Thanks so much, KLM. I went a while without knowing the value of JCW. Now that I know, I am gradually collecting some nice Cathay 1:200 models. I had some JCW models, but I was too much of a newb to realize it.

JC Wings released the Cathay Pacific A350-900 and the A350-1000.
Both very nice and kind of difficult to find

I missed the 900 version, but I was able to find the 1000 version. Model number EW235K001 (Aircraft Reg: B-LXA)
JC Wings released the "flaps down" version as well.

For more details and pictures, please see link below:

Great choice, and you're welcome...
Did you get the "flaps down" version or the other one!?

It really doesn't matter which one, both versions are beautiful models and getting harder to find .

I had the Phoenix version of the Cathay Pacific A350, but sold it for one reason or another. I'm really kicking myself now for such a silly mistake, lol

I was fortunate to buy the -900. It took me a while to get a hold of too. Hoping to have the 35k soon as well.

Hmm those seem to be very hard to find, I know the feeling when you are trying to fine that one model and you're running out of luck, I Will surely look around for you and let you know if I find anything.

What you could do is send DaiKongHobby aka Raymond L. a DM, he may have one of these in stock, Raymond is well known to have numerous discontinued models, he has helped me out a few times.
https://www.dai-kong.com/
His site may now show everything he has, hence why it would be best to send him a DM via the DA.C Forums instead.

The best scale 1:200 Cathay Pacific Airways model I know of is the J-Fox CPA B747-267B the VR-HKG "City of Hong Kong" with the delivery livery from 19871 and the Golden Widget behind the Swire Logo and the UK flag on the top part of the tailfin,

Only the VR-HKG Has the Golden Widget as this was CPA's flagship and it was also in honor to the Royal Family of the UK from what I was told anyway.




A rare and discontinued model, one of my favorite classics

After a large sum of money, I received an Inflight model with nacelles loose on #2 and 3 engines, and #3 engine fan loose. Not quite what I had expected.



This is the first time I have received a model with defects...I didn't even know it was Inflight until I had received it. Ebay'er has 100% feedback as a seller.

A wise tip even if a seller has 100% feedback always ask them to send you actual photo's or even a video of the product you are buying from them so you are sure the item is in good state if that is not the case then you have something to reply on, this can also be ideal if requesting refunds evia ebay & PayPal.

I did the same with a, EPoX 8K5A2+ mainbaord for one of my retro PC project the seller had 100% feedback the photo's he had showed that none of the capacitors were leaking the mainboard arrived with 4 bad capacitors it was an easy fix but still I was able to get my money back via paypal resolution center and used the photo's the seller applied me before buying the product.

Anyways if yous eek this model again I did find one on ebay last night I have DM'ed you it.
