Default GJ July Hints

The 400 scale releases will find models from Asia, Europe, Middle East and
U.S.. The Asian wonder will keep you guessing, while two brand new aircraft types to the respective airlines will make their debut. Two types of post merger mastery will also appear as well as a previous queen who has had some enhancements and now she looks lean. A short shout out is definitely around and these two other beauties will be found from Berlin to Baghdad.

I have a feeling we'll see a Lufthansa 747-8 and an ANA 787.

Well one of the ex BMI A319's has become a 'Dove' so you never know, although with Phoenix having just released their's I'd be surprised. Actually no I wouldn't be surprised. If there's to be a United/Continental release, I'd like to see a 757W, to keep it within my GLA theme. And I'd assume the 'new lean queen' to be a 748i or another 748f, dunno about Lufthansa, has GJ got a licence anymore ? Perhaps another nice rendition of the Boeing sunrise colours...

I believe theres a couple in the dove livery (G-DBCC and G-DBCD), plus G-DBCB is in full BA livery.

Im thinking one of the "two brand new aircraft types to the respective airlines" could be a Southwest 737-800.

If it's a post-merger UA, then two candidates come into mind: 737-800 - this is a staple, or else the less produced 737-700, and a definite one that comes to mind is the 757-200WL since they already produced it in 1:200 scale.
Any hints for Phoenix?

The Lufty 747-8 should be made. Along with another Lufthansa 747-400.
