Default Aeroclassics wishes...

Now that AC seems to be the only manufacturer making vintage livery 400 scale models these days, all of the hopes and dreams of my fellow 70's/80's/early 90's collectors lay with AK. Here's what I am still hopeful for on current moulds...

Frontier/SunLand Hybrid 737-200
Piedmont (Red Hybrid) 737-300
USAir (Experimental Livery) 737-300
United (SB-LARGE titles) 737-300
United (SB-LARGE titles) 737-200
EFS Bahamas DC-8-61
Florida Express BAC 1-11
Mackey DC-8-50
MGM Grand DC-8-62
Northeastern DC-8-52
Northeastern DC-8-62
Northeastern A300
Pilgrim F-28-1000
Empire F-28's
Presidential 737-200
Air Hawaii DC-10
Conquest 737-200
Grand Airways DC-9

Anything Emerald, Great American Airways, Key, Frontier Horizon, McClain,

New Moulds!

DHC-7 - I know it would take a miracle, but soooo many cool liveries!
727-100 - where'd it go, so many more to do!
L-1011-500 - excellent in 200 scale, badly needed in 400 scale!
CV-580 - Frontier, CO EX, Aspen...

Here's to hoping some of these will be on Mr. Kline's radar in the future!

Yeah, I’m consistently disappointed with GJ new releases. I don’t think I’ve bought anything from them in years, now.

This. Definitely this. Also -1/50/100/200/250, as well.

It’s baffling to me how under-represented this plane is. Especially on decent-quality moulds, of which there’s really only one. And on that mould, they made only the most obscure liveries one could possibly find, for the type.

I’d have to imagine that a decent L1011 mould, on common liveries, would be an instant hit.


...Would be my personal top two, especially Delta in both a -1 and -500. But there are lots of other liveries that would, no doubt, be a huge hit for the collectors. Just to name a few:

Pan Am
Air Canada
British Airways
Cathay Pacific
