Question First 1:400 releases

What were the first releases (by company) in 1:400? I heard of Dragon and some 747 kit and Aeroclassics 1st generation. What were Gemini's, AC, Dragon, Phoenix, and others first releases?

From memory:
DW; A340: Airbus House colours,SQ....A320 Ansett, Canada3000 amongst others.
GJ: Virgin Atlantic 744 pair.....
Aeroclassics: No idea but the Vc10's were in there somewhere.
PHX - no idea.

The DW releases were released as kits and as diecast. The kits were all plastic and pretty basic but adequate. The diecast versions had/still have plastic wings and pretty ugly landing gear.....

I feel like I won a lottery! I have in my collection the first ever release by PHX. It's still in a box, never displayed (because it looks so dull)

Thanks. From another forum was this for Aeroclassics:

I believe that the first AeroClassics model was ACBOA001, a BOAC VC-10 with a decaled livery G-ARVB, 400 pieces made.
ACBOA001B (1 pc!) G-ARVC were both released on 01NOV1999.

Also released on same day (all decaled) were:
ACBCA002, British Caledonian VC-10, G-ASIW (256 pieces)
ACCDN003, Canadian Pacific DC-6, CF-CZQ (100 pcs)
ACWAL004, Western Airlines DC-6, N91328 (95pcs)
ACEAL007, Eastern Airlines DC-6, N6121C (117 pcs)

Don't know what releases 005 and 006 were but could have been:
Air Ceylon L-1049, 5 pcs, No reg, No release date, No model number.
Air India L-1049G, 60 pcs. VT-DIM. Release date?, model number ?

The 1:500 scale Hercules, Howard Hughes' "Spruce Goose" was also a very early release.

Any corrections more than welcome.
