if they are going to make all these re-releases...why don't they re-release models that were very popular such as the AA MD-80's

The first "good" re-release, this one is at least a little bit useful (at least for me).
A few days ago I wanted to order it, but at my retailer it was out of stock, so now IŽll get a new chance!

However, DW, please stop making these re-releases and invest in new moulds!

Went and looked, it's identical to the one on my shelf. So many other 762's we need instead--TWA twin-stripe, USAir, USAirways, Piedmont, ANA, etc.

Oh yes, US Airways would be great!
Are they only flying on international routes or are they used on domestic flights too?

Dragon is just really making great releases these days, aren't they?

I mean, we all definitely need more re-releases of models that most retailers still have instock. That's why everyone hates Gemini and Aeroclassics, they make original models like BWIA A340's, AA 720's etc. Dragon is the one who listens to us collectors all the time!

dont think its a re-release, original 767-222 released by DW was in the old colors. They never released this model in current livery

Negative. This is a re-release.

The only interesting thing for me on this 767-222 UAL re-realese is the picture dispiting the Loide Aereo Boliviano B707-323C that I fly now, as PP-BRG, on BETA Cargo

Absolutely every possible UAL 767 version in every possible scheme has been released. That's good for those of us who like UAL and 767's. However, even I, a HUGE 767 and UAL fan, would rather have just about anything else. Like, NW DC-10-40...

Lightbulb Well...

Not for nothing, but with all the other airlines and operators that currently fly the 762, why did Dragon have to do this one???

How about these?

Airborne Express
US Airways
Qantas

Just to name a few...

I guess if I wait long enough, sooner or later, I'll finally get the re-releases of the SIA 772/773, MH A333, and 772.....

If DW deperately wants to re-release all their models, they should at least re-release their oldest models like the UAL A-319, but of course with an overworked mould!
