Hell yeah - how about a 707!!

Still a lot of airlines to do, albeit most major airlines have been done by Aeroclassics.

Tarom, Ethiopian, Air Zimbabwe, Royal Jordanian, Dan Air, Tampa Colombia, Aerolineas Uruguayas, Florida West, Southern Air Transport, Burlington Air Express, Millon Air, Azerbaijan Airlines, Saeta, Aeronica, Fast Air, Qatar Govt, Emirates UAE Govt, Aeropa, Skyworld, Aeronaves del Peru, ZAS of Egypt, DAS Air Cargo, Romavia, LAP Paraguayas, Arkia, African international.

I appreciate it may not be top priority, and there have been 3-4 707 moulds done, but hey there have been 8 TriStars now!

Mate, seriously, you need to stop baiting Andrew Klein all the time. I think this has become your hobby instead. It's not going to achieve anything positive whatsoever! As UK_Dispatcher says, NG Models are not on his 'list of doom' and I don't believe he has directed remarks of that kind toward them.

But yeah - nicely played NG

I empathize with requesting classic types.... but really?? 707??

Aeroclassics produced the definitive tooling for the type in 1:400. It’d be nice to see the older turbojet variants, but I hardly think it’s under-represented in the scale. AC will probably still get around to doing a lot of the types you mention, even. Just have patience, not a request for a waste of new tooling.

That’s because there is a definitive 707 in the scale. No one had produced a definitive L1011 until NG. Of those 8 Tristars, several can trace their development lineage back to the late 90’s. So they’re hardly modern, or even good.

Yawn. Great, more modern twins.

That said, you’ll probably get your wish. NG definitely favors the contemporary types over the classics. 737NG, 757, 787, A330, Beluga XL all on the contemporary side, and only L1011 so far on the classics side.

Oh look, Transpac "I decide what is a decent request" 787 speaks again.

You really do need to wind your neck in a bit Transpac, your sole intention at times seems to be to wind other posters up. Who do you think you are to determine what might be a decent request?

You seem intent on stamping your opinion on the hobby. Your view is no more valid than anyone elses. Its certainly not the first time you've done this, you seem to be like the forum bully. Ok your view on certain points may be a good one, but why be patronising to any posters with comments like "yawn"?

You flamed us when certain posters asked for Russian stuff. That was a waste in your view too. I was happy with the TriStars I have got to be honest, but admit NG have taken detail to a new level. The 707 may well be well represented by Aero Classics but it is very seldom used these days (over the past few years) and that very good mould is quite old now and semi-retired. So stop telling people what they should and shouldn't request.

You are not the voice of the people.

Don’t be such a snowflake. I, ironically, agree with you rather often. Would you like me to add a “+1” in every instance I do??

Looks like you edited your original post quite heavily, so I’ll have to respond to it as you edit it, haha.

If you’re referring to the Tu-114, I actually think it would sell quite well, all other things being equal. The problem I expressed before, and seemingly need to repeat, is the lack of livery options. 4, at best??

You’re right, the thing would probably sell real fast. I just think collectors at least need to be aware of the price point that would make it a reasonable investment for the manufacturers. If you’d all be willing to pay $70+ USD for it, then more power to you. I hope y’all get what you want, and I hope the manufacturer gets a decent ROI.

It occurs to me that while there are a vast number of 737NG moulds on the market, most of them are pretty antiquated or simply not very good. The NG -800 on the other hand appears excellent, just requiring a little tweaking of the nose gear (too tall at the moment) and maybe the engine exhausts to be near perfect. The -700 and -900 could be made fairly cheaply by re-using the wings, tail surfaces, undercarriage and engines of the extant -800, merely requiring new fuselages. The -600 is the same, but I expect that the lack of available liveries might make this one a bit less of an optimal choice, although if they are willing to amortize the costs across the entire 6/7/8/9 range it should be quite viable. Having NG producing the complete range of 737NG seems kinda appropriate as well.

While on things Boeing, I suspect a definitive 737 'Classic' -300/-400/-500 range would do quite well. Despite considerable numbers of releases in the past (on mostly mediocre moulds) there are still quite a few notable operators of these types missing too.

I'd like to see some more 727 action too, for while AC has that market wrapped up currently, their excellent -100 is no longer in production and their -200 really needs to be replaced. That #2 exhaust and the whole droopy rear fuselage and crude vertical stabiliser always drags my eye away from the rest of the model which is otherwise really good.

Huh, I'm getting into the 'produce everything in all available liveries' territory so I'll shut up now.

Agree with you on the nose gear being too tall. Big turnoff for me with these 737s.

We definitely need a good producer of the 737-500. Gemini's just looks weird. There are certain liveries I'm looking for in a 737-500, and GJ has not produced them yet. But I'm not screaming for them as GJ's 737-500 just looks weird.

Yeah, there’s quite a few missing -400 and -500 that have never been done at all. Or, as you point out, on subpar tooling.

Yeah, that whole tail section is.... it’s really something.

I was excited to see GJ release a couple 727-200’s... but I have a feeling there won’t be anymore. Hopefully we aren’t disappointed in the same way with the CV580’s too. One new, and that’s all she wrote.

WELL DONE GUYS!! You're going from strength to strength! As much as I'd love to keep nagging about the 747SP to be done, I will say this rather.....
Stay committed to quality and detail as you have done up until now. DO NOT RUSH PRODUCTION and let complacency set in as we've seen with other manufacturers. Stay as you are,....don't feel pressured to do too many moulds....and keep the quality EXCELLENT and rest assured, you will have a lifetime commitment to your product from all serious collectors. I'm sure everyone will agree with this!

Well said. Couldn’t agree more! Maintaining the consistency and quality in production is key. No hurry for anything; all in good time. NG have raised the standard. Let it stay up there!

We definitely need a good producer of the 737-500. Gemini's just looks weird. There are certain liveries I'm looking for in a 737-500, and GJ has not produced them yet. But I'm not screaming for them as GJ's 737-500 just looks weird.

There have been some odd pictures floating around of the NG 738 and some clearly haven't had the nosegear correctly fitted. It really isn't that bad and certainly doesn't look like a MAX (ironically several of the MAXes on the market (ahem hello Phoenix) have a MAX that looks like a 738). Here's a comparison shot of the nosegear on the real thing to that on the NG mould. It is too high but by a tiny amount:

Don't know all the ins and outs of the bad gaff (mistake/error) Boeing suffered with their stall automation but as indicated it'll cost them dear. I know this much,I'm sure the stresses placed on the workers at the Boeing factory must be immense. Part and parcel of an industry ( amongst thousands of others!) that commit to deadlines and push production numbers so much so, that it's coming around to give them a serious bite on the ***. With pressure on staff of this intensity, it's a no wonder errors of this scale are setting in like rot! Sorry if this gets anyone's back up,but it's my two pence anyway!

The nosecone could need a little treatment too - printing- and tooling-wise.

Yes indeed, and do we have any other 1:400 contenders with moveable parts yet ? The JC Beluga and wasn't there a 747-400F with moveable cargo nose door a few years ago ?

Nah you get that close to any 1:400 and it'll look odd

So how many livery options has an Airbus A330 Beluga-XL, yet NG made it? You also berated our requests for a Tu-134, but there are dozens of livery options. Each and evey opinon is valid and should be respected.

While the Beluga may have even fewer livery options than the Tu-114, I'd guess there are components like the wing, engines and main undercarriage that could have been reused on their subsequent A330 pax series moulds. not sure how much of a saving this represents but it is a factor to be considered.
That said, I'd gladly buy an example of every livery of the Tu-114 in a heartbeat and probably a couple of extras as gifts for friends.
Who knows? Herpa seemed to find it worthwhile to pop out types like the An-225 and Tu-144 which only have three liveries apiece, IIRC. Also NG invested a bit of extra time and effort in the oddball Honeywell 757, so perhaps we shall see.

In any case this should be a thread about Boeings now that NG is officially licenced.
So I'd very much like to see NG take on the 737 'Classic' line, as the 734 and 735 are fairly poorly represented in this scale as mentioned above. The 733 is somewhat better catered for, mainly through the efforts of AC although I'm not sure if AC still has access to the 733 mould or not. So there is a need there too.
In addition we could always do with a new 727 as well, especially as AC's shorty 727 is now defunct and while the 200 is good in the main it looks like someone tried to park a VW in its number two nozzle which bunged up the whole rear end. The other 727 moulds (DW, GJ & AV) seem unlikely to make a reappearance at this point.

It would be interesting to see if NG is interested in doing russian moulds at all. And concerning the 727 - imho apart from the DW mould there is no good 727 mould in 1/400 at all. Dragon had the most accurate ones ... -100 and -200. If NG releases a 727 mould one day, it will be nessecary to have both.
