Dear Customers,

How about a few clues to work on this weekend for the models we will announce towards the end of next week? Remember, some parts of the clues can be for the airplane type while another part could be for the airline. How many do you think you know? Comment below if you think you cracked them! Good luck and have a great weekend everyone.

James

1/400 SCALE

1. The model idea of this long haul, slow take off airplane came about while staying at a hotel chain that was founded in the early 70s by this airline.

2. Before her current special billboard titles and before her airline’s current colors were applied, this jumbo sported these colors before skipping a branding phase that would make a late Prime Minister happy.

3. With 58 of these in the fleet holding 218 passengers each, at any given time they could be flying around 12,644 passengers at ones. Out of those 12,644, how many do you think would notice the new paint?

4. Recently this airline celebrated its one-year of regular operations. This narrow body, the only airplane type in their fleet, almost looks like the “ice cream of the future” was on the mind of the artist. If you look carefully at the logo, you will see there are six circles not three.

5. When this long haul aircraft was introduced by the airline, it provided its customers with a new class of service available for booking. After waiting months to get permission to fly her, they celebrated her approval to fly and looked forward to the planned inaugural 8 hours 30 minute flight to Bangkok.

6. Some airlines advertise this on tray tables, soft drink cups, napkins and in the mail, however this airline likes for everyone passing by to see it on this 737.

7. This airplane type has seen more airline changes in their young years than most airplanes normally have in the United States, Europe and down under. This particular example started off with the bright blue airline before being taken-over and painted white colors with the new name. After the plane got painted again, this time with slightly more colors, this model was born.

8. Founded in 1998, this small prop airline is named after the place it’s based at. When looking at the livery you might fear this creature, but at least on this plane it couldn’t look friendlier. Kawaii Egao!

Hmm...I think it's the only Airline with a brand new livery right now. Could it be possible that it is the new Airbus A319 for AA?

Yeah, I know. 58 in the fleet being the key...seating is slightly off in the hint, being 218 when they are really 225. I'll be grabbing it when it comes out.

I think that's gotta be it. The 6 circle thing, 3 circles for the grey, and 3 for the white. Good looking aircraft.

#2 Has got to be a BA Landor 747, hopefully a 742 but quite possibly a 744 too. Whatever it is, I hope they put the newer gear on it and not the thick plastic stumps of recent BA releases..
