Default Inflight 1:200 Boeing 757, 767 with photos

The 767 mould looks ok to me, equal or more compared to GJ or JC in my opinion.
















and their 757





From the photo, for me, it is safe to pre-order American Airlines 757-200 now!

This information can't be found anywhere, not even on IF200's website. The retailers only mention that the models come with a stand.

I could swear, at least the 763s, are none other than the G200 / JCW mold ... (other than the brick like ADF antennas)

Finally a decent looking 767. I will be getting one when these will become available in Australia.

I'm not sure about the 757...it looks very Gemini-zed

Both of them look like high quality molds. The blue used on the C-32 is too dark.

I love how people comment on colours taken under fluro lighting and not in natural daylight. It never ceases to amaze me.


Both the 757 and 757 tooling looks good to me.



Also worth a note, not one of the 9 post above mentioned the 767 nose landing gear lower section is back to front and not in the correct position. Goldleader I do believe your correct when you say people in China factories that very kindly make models for us should not take pre-production photos and send to ARD. Furthermore to the point, ARD should ask them to adjust and correct before putting on the ARD website well ahead of the Infight200 APP or website.

Regarding an AF B763, ARD tells me "It is highly likely one will be done at some point."

Fingers crossed for standard + experimental c/s 😊🤞!

You bet they will Tom. It's new tooling and they want the leg up. Not a step backwards. These pre production photos show forward gear doors without two letter rego codes, and bless their little cotton socks they put the front gears in on the 767's like a 747. Hope that answers your question Tom

Fluorescent light alone explains the difference? I doubt that:

Well doubt all you like. I am speaking from experience of purchasing actual models and also knowing after 12 years of collecting what actual production photos versus what poorly pre production photo's under fluro look like and this is one of them and I don't mean the VC-32A I mean all of these photo's. ARD have no right to publish them on their website like that without a disclaimer stating these are " Pre production photo's ". While I understand that they are excited as much as us collectors, The production models will come correct with details as I said about the aircraft's gear doors as in this photo. If you want to go on about poorly taken pre production photo's taken in China after the points I have already addressed. Feel free to do so.
go a head.

What I should have done was give you an example of the nose gear doors and how the model will be released. In particular, VH-EAN will come with like this and on for all the other 767's and 757's not on VC's or KC's

Upon further reflection, the nose shape (radome and cockpit windows) on 763s look to be somewhat more realistic than JCW / G200 ...

OK, Mr. Know-it-All. You're entitled to your opinions and I'm entitled to mine.

I've been collecting diecast aircraft models since 2000 and have several hundred of them, military as well as civilian. There's nothing you know about their appearances under various types of lighting conditions that I don't know, including the differences that are often seen between pre-production photos and the final product.

I've been disappointed before, when the fidelity of the final product has not lived up to expectations. With respect to the C-32, I have seen the actual aircraft and can tell you for a fact that the blue needs to be quite a bit lighter than that shown in the photo, fluorescent light notwithstanding. I hope that IF will get this one right.

Enjoy your collecting and good day.

It's the only one I'm missing from my "flown on" criteria (as far as AA goes). I'm still hoping to get my hands on a winglet version at some point.

Hey there's no need for name calling we are on the same page ok. I am well are that manufactures don't always get colours right. I was merely stating that while the models presented photos are crisp the lighting is very poor. That is very clear to me, or at least, the way I see it. I would just like to think that I am right and not you in all the photo's above, for all our sake's. I have invested pre orders on three models photographed above, QANTAS Air New Zealand and of course the USAF C-32. If you are right, I have done a fair bit of money. We have to wait and see. Please stay safe during these times and Happy collecting always

Wow. The nose on the 767-200 looks much better than the GJ version. Now, lets get a Saul Bass LARGE titles, Piedmont (all versions), TWA twin stripes, and a standard Delta widget! Can I get an Amen!

Thumbs up Re: Inflight 1:200 Boeing 757, 767 with photos

great finally a 1/200 Air New Zealand 767-200 for me more desired than the 747. I did weight and balance on ZKNBA ZKNBB AND ZKNBC in Honolulu balancing cargo in ld-8 containers...Air New Zealand's first 3 767-200's had large cargo doors and were delivered new. could take full pallets.... they had 2 second hand 767's one was ZK-NCI can't remember the other but that only had ld8 size cargo doors so we couldn't take pallet freight. routing for these birds were from LAX-HNL-NAN-AKL 3 NIGHTS A WEEK AND ON MONDAY WE HAD LAX-HNL-RAR-TGU-AKL...AT THE TIME BETWEEN 1990-1995 I SAW THESE BIRDS LATE AT NIGHT WE WERE THE OVERNITE GOING SOUTH. FINALLY AFTER 25 YEARS SEEING THIS RELEASED IN 1/200 SCALE NEVER THOUGHT I SEE THIS DAY..already ordered. Looking forward hopefully with polished belly ANA and Japan Airlines delivery colors and for the states United large title Saul bass and Delta. Already picked up the JC WINGS American 767-200 version.

I hope they release these in All Nippon Airways colours, although looking at their website they don't seem to have released any other aircraft in ANA colours. Does anyone know why? Trouble with licencing or something?

As for ANA (and others such as Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa etc.) it’s about licensing issues. Other brands will do these anyway, using the Inflight mould. It’s for the good of the hobby and us, the collectorate.

When airlines started to apply licenses to their corporate identity, and subsequently started to chase scale model manufacturers, the hobby was almost literally threatened. Early licensing came from Singapore Airlines and Qantas, if I remember correctly (as early as the late 1980’s, I think), then others followed. Pain in the neck for us collectors.

Update posted on IF’s website:

Another year has passed, and the factory is now closed for the Lunar New Year a little earlier than normal this year, however the plan is for the factory to reopen on February 20th all being well.

The Boeing 767 has started to ship out albeit in limited numbers due to the early closure of the factory which was put upon us at the last minute. The Boeing 757 is also ready in the factory, but time got the better of us and this will now be completed with the balance of the 767 models directly after the holidays. The other models which were due for release before the holidays were the L1011,A340-200 and some A330 models.

The new releases have been announced and these are in the list below with some exciting subjects and new airlines for Inflight 200 models such as Air Algerie with the Boeing 737 and the Nigerian Airways DC-10-30. Also, in the line-up there is the military JASDF Boeing 767 which will have the antennas fitted to the models and this will be made in limited numbers. Another interesting model is the PAN AM Boeing 727 which is equipped with the winglets.

Like most other companies around the world 2020 was a difficult year trying to adjust to what we could and could not do over this period and having limited resources to produce the models made this hard to schedule the production and with the travel restrictions meant we were not there to control the situation. This has of course delayed some models being released and we would like to apologise for the delay however we have planned for when the factory returns to prioritise these models and the clear the backlog as quickly as possible.

As always, we would like to thank you all for your continued support and to wish you all well in these strange times and remember to download our telephone app which will keep you informed with all the latest information from Inflight 200 models.

That Inflight reply is unfortunate. Pre 2020, I waited a year for a Korean Air 747-400, so it’d be nice if they just treated us like adults and didn’t make opportunistic excuses. Not fooled, and still not okay with the pre order system of things, nor the continued pre orders for a 757 and 767 mould that no one has in their hands. I just think it’s bad practice for the hobby. But that’s as far as I take this stink of a complaint. I’ve pre ordered several already.
