Clearly what you need, is more Cathay and Dragonair models. . Very impressive.

There is a new release. If you are interested here is the information on where to get it. This is another exclusive Martin, from the same place I purchased my China Airlines 777-300ER Advance engine option. If you want a limited edition of Cathay Pacific like Ken (above) of a A340-642 rego B-HQA made by JCW then you had better act fast and visit Collectors Wings Shop on Facebook and order or online www.collectorwingsmodel.com

Happy 75th Anniversary Cathay Pacific 24/SEP/2021

Cathay Pacific was officially founded in Hong Kong 24th September 1946, by two enterprising adventures, an American Roy Farrel and an Australian Sydney de Kantzow, who each put up HK$ 1.00 dollar each to register the airline. Farrel and de Kantzow, had met while flying Douglas C47 transport aircraft (the military equivalent of the DC3) for the China National Aviation Company during World War 2.

In 1945 Farrel brought a war surplus DC3 named "Betty" Which he and de Kantzow operated out of Shanghai until political pressure forced the operation to move to Hong Kong's war damaged Kai Tak airfield in May1946.
"Betsy" VR-HDB and her sister VR-HDA DC3 "Nikki" where the registered in Hong Kong as a new company Cathay Pacific Airways.

I am looking forward to the 75th Anniversary aircraft. If they do one. In the mean time let's go back 25 years, reminiscing the 50th anniversary on a A340-211

Wow what a great collection of the Hong Kong based airliners you have there Kenlim68 and I love the 'Silver Bullets'.......I thought I had a great collection of HK based airliners with 41 models but you have definately out done me. Thanks Aussiejets for posting the great looking CX A340-211 "50th anniversary" which I have in my collection. Also thanks for the link for the CX A340-642 B-HQA, I will be onto them tomorrow.

That is so true on so many levels. I caught the bug in 1/400, and when more 1/200 models were being rolled out by the 'dealers' (Inflight 200, Gemini 200, JC Wings 200, etc.) they had me hooked! Cheers! T7
