HA-XXX will most probably be a Malev...
The other ones Delta, United, and ... ???

Look forward to it. Have the Lufthansa D-ACLT and it is truly a real example of detail perfection for such a small model.

I appreciate the guess what’s coming threads. I really do. But I wish NG would’ve brought some more moulds to the table by now. 1:400 scale gets the love, but Gulfstreams and CRJs in 1:200 is a big who cares for me at this point.

I utterly agree. They focus on 1:400 we all know but it's been a long time since I remember they said are working on 1:200 scale new molds. Despite the pandemic situation only one new mold come out but the operators are so limited that this is definitely boring. I wish they come up with a 727 or 707 mold for the 1:200 scale collectors or maybe still in the commuters we can have a Twin Otter, Sweringer Fairchild Metro III or Shorts 330 and 360. Even an A318 or 737-600 will do.

What the NG guys do, they do very well. I for one prefer they concentrate on their core business (which is 1/400), and every now and then release some 1/200s... I do not expect a new mould every three or six months. Let them somewhat they don- cause they are doing it quite nicely.

1/200 suggestions:
- CASA CN-235
- DHC-6 Twin Otter

The aircraft you suggested are not suitable for the way you imply they are dealing with the 1/200 market.

To use a mould every now and then you have to use a mould offering a FKN lot of liveries ....the CRJ does - to follow your thoughts a 722 mould or a classic 737 (3/4/5) would be a mould securing maximum use over a very long period of time.

I have doubts they follow this strategy: why did they do the Comacs then? Wont't be a hotseller at western retailers. The CRJ btw is a frequent release in their monthly line-up.... so every now and then imho is a not-suitable description for what NG Models is doing in 1/200. A B722 would be perfect to join the NG line-up, as it is a popular aircraft, still flying for a few operators and being a success all over the globe. Imagine all the latin and european 722s being too abscure to be released by JC or GJ which might surface - not to speak of the US market. A lot of collectors would be very happy about NG bringing a 1/200 727 to the market.

You may be wish seeing more classic airliners such a 737-200s and 727-200s on the market but since JC and GJ plus IF do have the 727 mould - with brands such as El Aviador - even feeding the demand on where GJ does not even think if (Latin America, for example), I don’t think you are “more correct” than me. May be WB Models and the like will bring on some classic European 737-200s or 727s in the future (yes, I know, the IF 727-200 is not what you’d like to have).

So, still, small quantities and rather unusual aircraft types are a good niche for NG to join the 1/200 scale market.

I agree, filling a niche is good, but as for the 727 and 737 (also having the CRJ releases in mind) these are potential future NG200 projects. Just think of the Tristar in 1/400 - actually there was no need for it, still people noticed the quality and attention to detail, and now it is stae of the art. To come back to the 727 in 1/200, GJ stated multiple times that there is absolutely no chance for certain liveries (ok, they used different words - but that was the bottom line). Inflights 727 mould was discussed until the boiling point, El Aviator and WB Models use Inflight 727/737 moulds for their models - case closed.

The L-1011 is a good example but the opposite of your explanation applies. There definitely was need for a TriStar mould since the GeminiJets version was far outdated (and no longer used), AeroClassics a pure mess (sorry to say - but it’s the truth), and DragonWings long out of 1/400 business. In essence, there was no better ground as for a new, decent and accurate L-1011 mould - for both, the long-body and the short-body models. NG did them - with enormous success.

As for the 727s, there’s a decisive difference: GJ and JC are intensely using their mould, and so does IF. Most of the collectors would not exchange their IF 727 for a re-released NG version, since the IF is not “bad enough” for that. As for GJ, their concentration on certain key airlines/regions does not affect it much since JC is doing all the rest.

Just my 2 cents worth, of course...!

Nice idea. Falcon 20 would complement their rather unusual 1/200 range.

Do you really believe that collectors are willing to replace their Tristar, because it is inferior compared to the existing moulds but are not when it comes to the 727? Come on...


What NG dioes with their CRJ - that I would call intense. Compared to the options JC and GJ taken seperately are doing not even the minimum of what they would be able to do. Lets have an example: you probably need to wait 5 years for an Alitalia or Dan-Air 722, and another 10 years for Icelandair... and 20 years for Royal Air Maroc, Lybian Arab or Alia - not to mention the YU- registrations.

Under the given circumstances I mentioned, yes, indeed! First of all, 1/400 is not 1/200, and Inflight’s 1/200 727 isn’t as bad as AeroClassics‘ 1/400 L-1011.

I might be wrong, of course.

Sorry, but you are - btw there is also a good 1/400 mould missing.

And I think there are still some people been missing some Inflight 727s, and you could also use different registrations if needed...

It is hard to discuss a matter which is pure personal interpretation and not based on facts.

Therefore, let's end this discussion here. Time will tell...

As much as I despise actually riding on the Barbie Jet, US examples typically represent something "flown on" for me and therefore a must-have. I would agree with you on the Gulfstreams but people seem to really like them too.

I collect corporate jets, but based on their public political views, I'll take a hard pass on anything NIKE...

Default Re: NG Model 1:200 May 2021 Release "Hints"

As a sneakerhead, I will definitely be picking up N1972N but probably not N3546 since they picked the plane jane corporate jet livery version and not the newer black and blue livery.

Heh and for once they picked one that I *haven't* flown on. I do still need a Midwest 717 and DC-9-30 though.

I know this is off topic but I am one collector who has strayed away from Inflight’s 727, especially the -200, in the hopes that G&J do them. There’s been the occasional IF -100, but I know what I’m getting and I KNOW I’m spending at least $20 more than a G&J copy.

As others have mentioned, at the very least, NG could’ve split out more commuters by now.. A narrow body would.. based on their mould output timeline.. be a quantum leap, and only Sam could help us then

By the way... same here! Although I don’t think the IF 727-200 is so bad that collectors who bought them would exchange them for a new re-release of the very same model, I am also staying away from IF’s 727-200... therefore, I was so much delighted when JC announced the Iberia 727 three years back. I was even happy although it took JC over a year for delivering the model; and what happened? I was badly screwed up with the yellow and red colour of the “IB” tail logo mixed up. THAT was a mess! Model returned to retailer and still waiting for a correct one to be released.
