Default Is this TWA 747 made in a diecast vs plastic?

Hi, forgive me if this is a stupid question but I have searched high and low for a 747 in the TWA Globe livery and only can find Hogan and push/snap fit.

Was one made and if so, does anyone have an example/maker/part number they could post? Would love to see one!

Thanks

Thanks! I thought for sure this had to have been made. Any idea where I could track Inflights part number down? Is there a database out there perhaps?

Thanks again

IF7411215 released in 2015



Although I have to say I'm a bigger fan of the twin-globe livery:

Thanks for that. I just found it there. The problem with looking at their website as a newer collector is that the Wanted list grows exponentially!

Thanks for the replies gents!

Every now and then someone will list it as Inflight even though it's a Hogan. The lack of antennas and wing antennas are the fist giveaways it's a Hogan. I just sold one last month for $140. Another guy listed one as well about a week after I sold mine...I think his sold for $160 -- or at least I know he got more for his than I did for mine because that's just how I roll.

Russ thanks for that, sincerely appreciated. Picked that one up just now, and they had 5 other models I have been searching for as well! I did not even know Jetstreams existed!

@robertjon5 thanks for the heads up again.

You can also search the DIMA database. You can adjust your search and filter by aircraft, airline, scale etc...

https://www.diecastmodelaircraft.com/database

In this case you could filter by Airline to Trans Worlds Airlines. Aircraft(careful with this one) B 747 Scale 1:200

You will then see all the TWA 747s in 1:200 that are listed in the datbase.

Sorry Ive yet to post pics but believe it or not I am still waiting for 5 models to arrive. The others which have arrived already are now buried in a pile of 1/200 airliners which are stored in my office until I finish selling/storing my 1/72nd military collection to make room for the 1/200.

I still have to box about 500 more planes before I can move the airliners in, and will post pics of the 1/200 entire collection when its all done including the Jetstreams models which I was looking for.

They have been a good resource in getting some older Inflight models which I couldn't find out there so thanks again for the tip CV, I think I picked up about 20 planes from them total!
