Thanks for taking my reccomendation for Worlds Biggest Offer. Shame I wasn't in London to purchase it. Maybe someday

Great to see all the excitment over NG's latest offerings. Those 757s look great! I'll be hanging on for those TriStars myself, it will be very interesting to see those samples on the day. And of course Kempton is coming up as well!

I believe so, as after the Heathrow show, but not sure which retailers, I'll leave for NG Model to confirm.

You may ask your dealers for them, However, the amount allocated to them will be very limited. Please ask them earlier. Maybe they will have some for you.

WOW!!!! Those 3 releases are so sweet and with typical NG quality they are better than anyone would have imagined seeing....but, I am not loving the "boutique" nature of these releases. Probably making only 100 collectors happy with this move and some of them I suspect will be turning them over for the overwhelming profit they will understandably make...

Enjoy your latest haul mate!! Hope you didn't get too mullered before your flight back home It was great to finally meet you today, as well as Keith and Adrian, and also Dan Asher which was unexpected; he was accompanied by another guy who was also really nice, a former 747 pilot, I forgot his name , but had a great short chat with them both. I was meant to go back to their stall but ran out of cash - and time! Hope you made it back to sunny Glasgow safely. It was a good one

Here are two of my three purchased 757's from the Gatwick Fair. Unfortunately the 'Pause to remember' edition suffered a broken nose gear on the journey home and will need some hangar time...



Broken model on day of purchase. A good source of indigestion.

T'was a decent haul for me at LGW, here is my stash, pictured minutes before I spotted a holy grail...



I've wanted a first flight 747-100 model for ages but have missed out up until now. Sure it's not on the ideal Big Bird mould but this release by SkyClub models utilising the Dragon Wings mould (I think ?) will certainly do until someone else produces a better, more up to date version (nudge, nudge, wink etc )

Great haul there Big Al - especially that QA B742

I have a similar NG Model haul, plus a few other bits and pieces (was pleased to track down the LH B733 Blue Box release, and the Virgin Big Bird Austin powered B744

No worries, if I'd any idea what you looked like I'd have sounded you out. Same goes for Adrian... And no I'm not going to be at the LHR show this time but quite possibly next time though. Gatwick is much easier for me thanks to the direct bus they lay on from the airport and more so now since my leg amputation.

I have a similar NG Model haul, plus a few other bits and pieces (was pleased to track down the LH B733 Blue Box release, and the Virgin Big Bird Austin powered B744

Nice haul there too. I got the Austin Powers 744 on eBay a while ago, probably paid at least double what you did too. There's always plenty of bargains to be found at the fair though.

NG, do you have any intention to reshape the RB211 pylons for this engine variant? They make this beautiful engine as a whole look rather chunky... I know this is something that has been noted by collectors, but not changed.

Yes NG. AI 2019 is being held at the Delta Heritage Museum with a bunch of Delta fans. No better place to roll out your Delta releases or to produce something special for the show! It is the Superbowl, World Cup, etc. of aviation collectibles!

Was a great show as always, many great stands.

Didn’t buy the NG models but bought the Hertz Ryanair for more than I’ve ever payed for a model but I couldn’t resist! Goes nice with my other Ryanairs I think. 🙂

Thumbs up Re: See, what special we prepared for LGW2019

Very nice haul, guys! Good catches with the GJ Alitalia 741 and BB400 Virgin 744 especially.

I got a few goodies as well, including a BB400 KLM 742, SMA KLM DC-9, Aurora Saul Bass 732, AV400 Ansett 722, AC Air Inter A300 and a pair of AC ANZ 732s, just £15 each.

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.

Yes please, I'd love to see more Delta aircraft! The widget 757 a while back was exceptional. I'd guess the L-1011s will be one the way soon enough, and the 757 fleet has a nice variety of subfleets/configurations, so definitely an opportunity for some current color scheme releases. My dream would be for a 75H release eventually.

Don't think I'll be able to make it to AI though, so hopefully some models make their way to retailers.

Aha - then i met you without realising - you'd just bought the BB KLM 747 and were in animated discussion with the Dutch guys in the back left corner when i was visiting their stand (i mentioned that last year i'd picked up the BB Cathay 742 and Air NZ 742 from the same guys). It is really great when a holy grail gets found like that....
