Likewise - great meeting you! Yes the Dutch guys have had a few gems the last couple of years, and the BB ANZ and Cathay 742's were in my bag by 10.01am last year - I'd seen the London titles one too, and decided i couldn't justify another variant! It's just too addictive this 'chase' for the older models - I must try harder to stick to my criteria of 1990's LGW and LHR .

Wow you were in there fast - I was very fortunate to nab the "London" one then! The old BB400s are always the more expensive ones to find, unless you're really lucky. My criteria has also gone beyond the fringes, there's always an unexpected temptation!

Also got the GJ scaffolding set and Landor L-1011, and the NG 757 "The World's Greatest Offer", not in my criterea but thought it would be a nice souvenir.

Great bargains found at a stall outside the main hall which I nearly missed, and in turn, nearly made me miss my bus! I also got a signed copy of the book, "Heathrow In Photographs" from Adrian, lots of really good reference material in there.

And, thanks again for the spare box Al! That was really kind of you to bring it along, it's come in mega handy. A really great day.
















So Jealous Alex. Those are some nice catches. Again thanks again for No. 25 Was the new scaffolding kit the same price as retail at the fair or cheaper?

Hi Jag, thanks a lot, there were more of the rarer models at the fair than I expected! Glad I could help you with the NG 757 The scaffolding kit was the same price as retail.

Haha ok - I'll make sure that you'll be the first to know! That was a complete fluke, I wasn't even looking for it, or had it on my wishlist for that matter. Didn't you find the -300 version recently?

Good to meet you Alex, Keith and other forumites. Unfortuately, I was tied to my table there and every time I tried to 'escape' to check out some models, my wife called me back to deal with customers. I thought I had a real holy grail and found a SMA 737-200 in United delivery colours, but didn't check it out before purchasing it, only to find later that it was riddled with zinc rot! At least I bought the three beautiful NG Landor 757s and managed to pick up some models from ARD.

Likewise and really enjoying your book. Sorry you couldn't get away from your stall as much as you would've liked! Oh no! Such a shame about your SMA Mainliner 732!! I think I saw that one actually, it was at that stall outside the main hall, I bumped into you again there when I was finding loads of those early SMA/AC models as well. I just checked the DiMA database and it appears that the SMA Mainliner 732 was released in 2003, it must have just caught that period when the Witty factory was using a faulty batch of metal, in late 2002 - early 2003 from what I've read, affecting certain SMA/AC/BB400 models being made in that factory during that time. This is the problem with buying some of these older models. Glad you are happy with your other additions though!

I had that SMA 732 Mainliner at one point, and let it go, and if I recall, it had just a touch of early zinc rot. Wish I still had it, and there's never been a real appeal for someone, anyone, to produce a replacement model. That remains the biggest hole in my Mainlliner fleet, and it's at the top of my holy grails list... Outta here, Doug

Doug, we could still hope that AK might re-do this one; he did replace some of the other early 732 releases which fell victim to zinc-rot. Perhaps add this one to the wishlist thread that's currently active on here. That being said, we haven't seen a 732 from AC for quite some time; since 2017 I think?

I think we haven’t seen a AC 732 since AK cut ties with Panda.

I thought AC owned the 732 mould, it's the very same one from SMAC heritage isn't it? When AK left the Witty factory, that was one of the moulds that stayed with him I thought. I didn't realise Panda had anything to do with it.

Hope that one is safe from zinc-rot That was also a 2003 release, but I can't remember if it was also made within that critical production period when the faulty batch of metal was used.

I believe the non-cradle 732 and 733 moulds are owned by Panda. I have an EI 737 on each.

Hopefully no zinc rot. It was advertised as being in excellent condition.

Oh ok, interesting, I didn't realise that.

Just checked that model out a bit more too. As with the Aurora Saul Bass 732, it appears that this was another exclusive for JetStreamsUSA, released in August 2003, which places it outside the danger zone.

Haven't seen any U.S. retailers offer any of these. Stopped waiting for fear of completely missing out and ordered Pause to Remember and World's Biggest Offer from an overseas retailer. These will be my first NG 757s and, after collecting since 2006, these will be my very first British Airways models. Pretty surprised myself that I've never purchased a BA model! Looking forward to getting my hands on these!

Harvey, you won't be disappointed. These were out of my normal criteria but I'm glad that I made an exception, I picked up 'World's Biggest Offer' and it's well worth having in the collection. Enjoy your first ever BA model! You'll be adding more of them now, just watch

They arrived and are both great. No zinc rot! I posted pictures of all 4 models I recieved in the latest purchases thread.

Default Re: See, what special we prepared for LGW2019

What are you guys talking about?????
The 737-200 had nothing to do with those panda scumbags.
AC's last 737-200 releases were within the past 12 months; Aerolineas Argentinas & Wien Alaska.

I wish those who don't know anything would stay silent instead of misleading others!

My mistake! I guess just the 737-300...

This is what I thought. The earlier, original 732 mould is the very same one from the SMA days, circa 2002 vintage.

Nice models Jacob, glad they arrived in good condition. MASSIVE photos though!

So do I have this right? The cradle AC 732 is from 2002/2003 days, and the seamless non-cradle 732 is also an AC mould but is from 2009/2010. And the 733 non-cradle mould is the Panda mould that is no longer used by AC since they cut ties.

Thanks.

Sorry for the massive files, they were straight from the camera and hadn’t compressed them down.

No worries. At least we get a nice close-up view of them lol. You can see how nice the tampo printing is on these gems.

That's it. I think Continental Airlines in "Frontier Hybrid" c/s (N7371F) was one of the last releases made on the original 2002 cradle mould in 2009, and an Ansett (VH-CZN) was one of the first to be released on the new updated seamless mould, in that same year.
