Lightbulb 1/200 Aeroclassics wishes

What would you most like to see? I, for one, am a little surprised nobody has done a 1/200 Buffalo Airways Electra yet since they are such a prominent current user. I’d love to see Aeroclassics tackle it... even if Buffalo’s livery is just a modified Atlantic livery (photos are my own):

A Canadi>n Electra would be rather special, although the observation dome may be tricky to replicate for a one-off model:

Do they have a existing 1/200 mould of Electra?

Electras aside, Transair’s beautiful Boeing 707 would be a striking model:

I have WM’s Nordair Electra. I assume the mould still exists.

The Starship! That would be a fantastic release. The plane never belonged to Led Zeppelin, but whichever band it was carrying at the time would have their name printed on the side of the 707.

Allman Brothers:


Led Zeppelin:



Elton John:



Revised livery - Peter Frampton:

I don’t think Aeroclassics has a 1/200 727 mould. 1/400 only.

Would also love some more Electra`s in 1:200 from Aero Classic/Western models....Buffalo airways, Atlantic and my holy grails Fred Olsen (last/white livery) and Iscarco Iceland.....however is the mould still existing? I bought an Reeve Electra when it was released and the cockpit roof had a slight deform.....maybe the mold had reached the end of life?
