Default Nominations for 2020 1/200 model of the year

Post your nomination for 2020's best 1/200 model

With 2020 coming to a close, which 1/200 model do you think was the best? Explanations are a plus. Pictures of your model would be appreciated.

CRITERIA:
1. Released in 2020 calendar year
2. 1/200 scale

We'll keep this simple, I will count the top five nominations, and create a poll for finalists. There will be a Best of 2020, and two runner up. Just like a beauty pageant.

Nominations from this thread will be collected until Saturday December 26.

Nice topic, for me it has to be the KLM MD11 in delivery colours, PH-KCK released by Gemini.

For me, it would have to be the Gemini Jets 1:200 Lufthansa B747-8i. The new livery is growing on me, and the 748 is just a natural beauty.

Being this is a model I do own from Gemini's 2020 release, it's most obviously this relic of the past with SAA's Springbok Livery from 1984 which was used on their B747-444 the ZS-SAX from 1989 to 1997

Boeing 747-444
South African Airways "Springbok Livery 1984-1997"
(1989 - 1997 for SAA B747-444)
ZS-SAX "Kempton Park"
✈️
Scale 1:200
Gemini Jets 200

Release Date: Mid June, 2020




Main reason is the accurate and precise details Gemini Jets applied to this rare seen model, this is also a first attempt of using this livery on a SAA B747-444 from what I can recall and they simply mastered it to the tiniest detail.

For those that want Bandit Livery, seek SAA's B747-244B's & B747-SP-44's; these would be the ones to go for.
And for those wondering if the SAA & SAL Logos are on the correct sides? Well they are as this photo also proves, they swapped them around on their B747-444 series of aircraft.

This is a photo of the real ZS-SAX taken & owned by Danny Crew from AirHistory(dot)net.


Springbok Livery was introduced with the SAA B747-344 in 1984, as a SAA B747 fan myself I choose this one for the best aircraft model for 2020.

Only just the one since only one can be the best.

Cool thread btw

There are too many beautiful models hat have been released this year, so voting for the best 3 would be a bit tough...

To be fair, and to include more airplane models, this vote nominations should be divided into three (3) categories:
1. Widebody aircraft,
2. Narrow body aircraft and
3, Regional commuters

My choice vote for widebody aircraft category:
1. Gemini Wings Boeing B747-800 Lufthansa
2. Inflight 200 Airbus A310 Aeroflot (IF310SU0620)
3. JC Wings Airbus A330F-200 DHL (LH2155)

My choice for narrow body aircraft category:
1. J-FOX Airbus A320-200 Canadian Airlines (B-320-CP-001)
2. JC Wings Boeing B737-500 Aer Lingus (XX2364)
3. JC Wings A320-300 Air Baltic "Latvia 100" (XX2259)

My choice for regional commuters category:
1. NG Bombardier CRJ-200 BA "Chelsea Rose"
2. JC Wings Bombardier CRJ-900 Adria-Nordica (XX2365)
3. JC Wings DASH8-300 BA Landor

Hell yea man and thanks for the kind reply, so happy I bought it, I have friends that were part of SAA"s B747 maintenace team that worked on all SAA B747's.

My SAA/Alliance Air fleet has these:

Alliance Air:

B747SP-44 ZS-SPA "Matroosberg" (IF200)

South African Airways

B747SP-44 ZS-SPE "Hantam" (IF200)
B747-244B ZS-SAO "Magaliesberg" (IF200)
B747-312 (Ex-Singapore Airlines) ZS-SAJ "Ndizani" (JCW)
B747-444 ZS-SAX "Kempton Park" (GJ200)

Would be nice if ZS-SAN "Lembombo" would be made in diecast @ 1:200.

Tough one, but I'd have to go with GJ Royal Air Force A330 for wide body and GJ Northwest Orient B722 for narrow body.

Two models come to my mind: - the Herpa KLM DC-4...very nice new mold and the KLM model has such a great detail....

And the inflight Aeroflot A310....great finish and nice mold....now come on Inflight, bring out an Aeroflot Cargo DC-10!

Does it need to be from gemini, jcwings, etc or can also be customized models?

Good nose shape, removable gear, heavy and very nice models

It can be any diecast model manufacturer in 1/200 scale.

The likely contenders would come from those manufacturers you mentioned, unless we get overwhelming posts nominating a certain custom model, or even some odd scenario, as odd as a 1/200 GSE could count! Even bootlegs from the plain white boxes are welcome! But bottom line, the five models receiving the highest number of nominations posted in this thread will be placed in the finals taking place after Christmas.

I'm afraid there will be only one winner, adored by many, disliked by few, and questioned by some, which will get the most nominations, and the most votes in the finals. I will relieve your challenges as I am counting your number 1 choices from each category as your final three selections.

Sadly, and very unusually for me, I don’t have a nomination for 2020. There was really nothing that I wanted to buy. I’m still a collector, and haven’t lost interest, but it’s been a big zilch for me, pretty much like the entire year.

Exactly the same story with me. Zilch for 2020.

I really like the Olympic B747-200. Very clean look, while still a retro livery.



For single-isle aircraft I like the KLM B737. This one is from Jfox / Inflight200, highly detailed. I realize that the color scheme is not the latest one - but for me personally it's still the best one as I grew up with this scheme.

Widebody:
1) Inflight200 KLM B747-400 PH-BFT final flight. The new details that IF200 added and the Farewell 747 coin made it a really beautiful model and also my favourite 1/200. And come on, it's a KLM 747-400, you can't go wrong with that 🙂

2) GeminiJets KLM MD-11 in 1990's livery is second place as it's the best KLM livery with one of the best looking aircraft.

Narrowbody:
1) Air New Zealand Fokker 27
Combine one of the best retro liveries ever with a Fokker 27 and you will get an awesome combination.

I think, I have to change my initial nomination on Regional Commuters category

I hereby nominate the CRJ-900LR Nordica (Adria) as the best release [in my opinion], in Regional Commuters category!

if.. let’s say... GJ / IF / JF would have released any Cathay Pacific / old livery / wide body with polished belly and RR engines. I am sure it would be nominated by everyone... all I want for Xmas is a few of those...

My vote for 2020 goes to the Aeroclassics Air NZ DC-8-52, beautifully executed and a model that's been on my wanted list from the day I began collecting

This post "models of the year 2020 " is two months early. Should be in February giving time for everyone's December 2020 releases to arrive at their destinations around the globe.


anyhow my votes go to


(1) Herpa DC4 Qantas
(2) Geminijets200 Qantas 747-400 "Flaps down" still in transit as it is a December 2020 release.
(3) Aeroclassics Air New Zealand DC8 in post #34 above

Throwing it into the ring and yes it’s a custom but it’s my favourite model of the year and was a total to get right.

However general release I would say jC wings 772 AA as I am impressed with the improvements on this release.

I'm curious . . . who made the AF CRJ-200? For some odd reason, this one must have slipped under my radar.

I'm pretty sure Aeroclassics released a quite lovely Connie this year, I can't damn find it to nominate.

PS Not trying to be funny, but isn't providing your own 'poll options' simply 'your own poll?'

This is "my"poll in the sense that I made it, but the poll options you see are based on the nominations from this thread which you will need to examine / read each post made from members who have participated.
To answer your question, this poll technically belongs to the members who have contributed, and makes for a representation for a group of 1/200 collectors.

Someone will dig up this thread in the future and get a good idea of what collectors liked in 2020.

My genuine apologies 787.

If that's the case, I should have read it, I just didnt get that from the initial post.
