These show the switch between the “old” Western Models & the “new”. Back in 2001, the original UK company decided to do a modern jet
airliner. 2 A321s were released, JP’s US Airways
and a Swissair. A further 3 A320s were planned, US Airways, Lufthansa & Condor but not
done. As JP says these had the screw attaching wing to fuselage. Plus crude landing gear and used decals but were the first of their kind
(hand-made using the mould/cast method). After their brief flirtation, WM reverted back to their old stuff!
After the UK company closed in 2007, it was the A320 that was then seen with 6 Air Canada models released in 2008 using the Aero 200
brand. Followed by an Air France & Dragonair. In 2009, the WM brand re-appeared with the red box and we saw the Vladivostok A320
3 more Chinese A320s were done. The A321 re-appeared in 2009 with 4 Chinese schemes. There were made using tooling and printing,
so were more refined.
Further types re-appeared as WMs before the Aeroclassic 200 brand was also used.
