Default Inflight 200 price mess in Germany

The former Schuco stock of IF 200 seems to be rather huge. Found recently a Qantas 744 offered in my local Vedes toy shop for 59,- Euro and could not resist....

German collectors, watch out.....

Hope to find a DC-10 and/or L-1011 soon as well.

Obviously the models did not sell in Germany for the regular prices and many of them remained unsold on stock.

BTT.... anyone that is buying plastic stuff at the €40 mark, it would be well worth sourcing out some of the 747's.. at €44 thats a good buy.... and eventually the supplies will dry up....

Watch out German Ebay and try to find a seller who ships worldwide.

By the way: My Qantas 744 has an irregularity at the fuselage's end (some shortage in metal). I could imagine, that these ultra low price ones (means: Even below the prices of ACB) are such with slight quality defects. Maybe Schuco did not return them but just sold them out for ultra low prices to local retailers and shops.

got myself Qantas 747-400 for 80 € and BA 747-400 for 77 €
sound expensive if compared to your prices
but the models are flawless
