Default New IF Preorders

According to an email from Waffle. Also visible on the ARD site.

The Caledonian 742 looks interesting to go with the recent DC-10, but I already have the Original Inflight LE (Martin Beacom) version, so I may pass.

Yes. The more recent IF and JF releases have lighter grey than the original IFs. The original Inflight LE 742 was even darker.

See the Caledonian variety here

And the original Landor with newer models.

Sorry about the different lighting. Fluorescent on top, halogen below.

It’s nice too because it’s not exactly a re-release. It doesn’t have the updated UPS livery but the artwork shows it will be one of their conversions which the Gemini isn’t.

I think you listed the Omega Air tanker twice John in stead of listing this one. Anyhow there is another release Inflight200 have released in this batch VH-EAI. This rego has been released before a very long time ago, in the Ochre scheme with the flying roo. This is a new release of "City of Darwin" SKU # IF707QFAEAIP "Stand Included"

The Thai Airways International B747-3D7 seems interesting the HS-TGD named ""Suchada"" that being, if I were to make space and I think I might be able to this would certainly be the one

You are right. It is listed twice, but that’s a screenshot from Waffle’s mail.

Great! There's LTU L-1011 D-AERI in polished belly finish. Maybe Inflight peeked into this forum since I detailed such a release in one of my recent posts. Click here.

Now that D-AERI represents one of three L-1011 acquired by LTU from the 'PSA estate' (never delivered, sold directly by Lockheed), I would appreciate if they take the opportunity to add as many features as possible in order to make a difference to their original LTU L-1011 D-AERA release. Here's the possible details to come:
  1. Polished metal fuselage due to the revised (one-piece) mould;
  2. Protective fairing behind the nose gear (as on the latest PSA re-release) which was required due the lower lounge;
  3. Additional printing on port side for the lower lounge passenger access door;
  4. Correction of horizontal stabilizer’s color (white instead of light grey);
  5. Newer RB.211-22B engine exhaust (D-AERA featured the early hot steam thrust reverser version);
  6. Additional “LTU TriStar” logo on engine nacelle;
  7. Red outlined lower galley servicing door on starboard side;
  8. Optional but nice detail: Red wheel hubs on all nose and main landing gear axes (if D-AERU is picked which was converted to a -100); LTU had the L-1011’s wheel hubs in red for higher-weight models, i.e. the -100, -200, and -500.
  9. All other improvements/changes made since the tooling changed to the new one-piece mould.

If you haven't already done so, send this list directly to Inflight, posting it here while interesting is almost useless.
No guarantees anything will be done, but at least you contacted the right people with your concerns.
Good luck

Looking forward to seeing pics of the 757 and 767 molds. Would also love to finally see a pic of the F-28 announced way back in early Jan.
