Default Updated Mould Review: Boeing 767-200s

It has been more than a year since I created the 767-200 mould review and obviously in that time Aeroclassics has produced a new mould so an update is well overdue. Here it is including an update on progress through the 767 wishlist I made late last year:

I cannot believe AC has produced so many B762s already. It seems like 2 minutes since the mould was released. I have picked up a few myself, though. I think it was a very sensible mould to develop.

I did not realise someone had already made a UTAir B767-200 in 1:400. I actually flew on one (VP-BAG) last week from Vnukovo to Kazan and was thinking how nice it would be if AC produced one. I'll hang on in hope for that.

I really like that Malev. Glad I got one. I was also lucky to get a Malev 737-200 at the Atlanta Show, that was a Aeroclassics exclusive for a diecast retailer in AMS.

I had that 737 from AK I got at the LAX Hilton show a few years back. Nice little bird that flew the nest once I moved out of 1:400. Always wished for a 762 Malev...oh well!

Love that Ethiopian, very nice. Part of my collection.
Not sure what it is about 767s, aesthetically I find it an unappealing and featureless airliner.
Of course, I realise planes are not built to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

I was glad to finally see the Britannia 762 released, the long requested example representing the first European operator of the 767. I'd love to see a Boeing house colours one done soon.

The AC 767-200 is a generally good model. The wings and stabs are a bit too thick. They aren't as fine as those on as AC's classic moulds like the DC-9 and DC-10. But I still definitely buy them.

The Pacific Western was the one I was most happy to see done.

Haven't acquired any 767-200s yet. If released, here's one that I would buy.

Anyone else interested in an Aeromaritime B767-200?

Nice review Richard and thanks Andrew for so many 767 releases in the past year filling a long-standing hole in the 400 market.
So far, I have the TWA, BA Landor, Britannia and Air Canada burgundy.

Please may we see a Boeing house livery and Air Pacific soon? Cheers

It'd go nicely with my Air Pacific BAC.111, B747 and DC-10.

Which would be all kinds of awesome!

Sorry to dampen your enthusiasm for this model. I had it on order, but when I saw it, I rejected it as there is far too much red in those pin-stripes! I have the Big Bird/Aeroclassics B767-300 and that's perfect, as are NG's Britannia 737 and 757. Put this one alongside any of those and you can see what I mean.
Here is how it should look.

A model of the 767-200 in Boeing house colors would be welcome. It would look good with my NG 757-200's in house colors.

Harvey, I would be interested in this model as it would slot right in with the rest of my UTA/Aéromaritime fleet. Still, I'm not completely sold on the AC B767 mold and am wary of the many errors that accompany AC releases of late.

How about a United Saul Bass BOLD titles 767-200? Seems like a no-brainer.

Yes it's a little unsubtle Adrian, I'd say too much red but abstain from saying far too much. As we know by now, these things aren't always perceived by the naked eye the same way as the camera eye looks at them.
