Default Hogan A300B4 Australia details

This relatively new mould of an old aircraft from Hogan is very good, significantly better than any other Hogan that i can remember.

Check out the aerials and bumps on the fuselage as well as the detailed wing and the wing root! Very glad i got one. Would be so nice if every Hogan is like this...lol

Get yours before they are gone

Looks nice indeed, though I don't know what Hogans usually are like.

Technically, the mould is a B4-600 btw.

Hogans A300 and MD11's are very good. They should utilize these molds more.

The Hogan A300 mould is superb. I have the Kuwait Airways A300-605R Hogan model, and absolutely love it! It is particularity special to me, because I flew on this particular airframe in 1995 when they had them from new. It was the first airliner I had flown on with seat back TV's.

I really want them to do a Monarch Airlines (old livery) A300-605R too, as I also flew on one of those the same year to Palma.

The difference between an A300B4-600/600R and all other A300B.. variants is fairly big, but I don't know of any diecast maker out there who's really replicating this.

The most apparent ones on the hogan -600 vs the B4 earlier version is the presence of wingtip fence on the -600 as well as different bigger engines.

You are correct in saying it's a relatively new mould of an old aircraft. I can brief you on the history of this release.


It was commissioned by Holdsworth's collectables as the history of Australia's first wide body Aircraft A300-B4. VH-TAA. Simon released the delivery TAA livery followed by Qantas and went back to the middle to fill the gap of Australian Airlines which is the one you have.












and finally Qantas on the last stage of this aircraft opps





And that is the history of VH-TAA.



I do have a diecast A300-600R VH-YMK Compass Airlines the first of Australia's lost cost carriers

Thanks, I thought so.
The Australian looks like - ignoring the engines - a perfect -600 mould.

Looks good enough for me Hogan, lets see a Dan Air, Orion Airways, Laker Skytrain and Wardair examples please. I've given up any hope that a diecast producer doing these any time soon.

All settled here, bought VH-TAA from Hogan Wings more than 6 years ago if memory serves me well, back in 1985 my family & I flown with the VH-TAB from Brisbane to Sydney, the photo was taken by my father back in the time, the Photo reveals B on the TAA Airbus A300B4-203, the B can be seen just above the flightdeck's windows which was the one my fam & I boarded back in the day:

Sadly no VH-TAB Model from Hogan, so I went with VH-TAA, at least the livery and the aircraft type was the exact smae and that nailed it enough for dad & I, my dad found it btw at the aviationmegastore them 10 years back
Good old days

I actually like the Hogan mold so much that I used it for a Lufthansa A300 customs.

Also have the Korean and Iberia A300s. Very nice models.
