Wow. That's extremely unfortunate no L1011's this month.

Some possibilities of the N-registration 757's:

N54xUS - Northwest, either bowling shoe or final colors
N54xUA - United, re-release of Saul Bass, battleship, or maybe just a PW-engine bird in the new colors
N62xDL - Delta, in the God-awful Ron Allen livery, or Deltaflot, or maybe new colors without winglets
N62xAA - American, hopefully with the original "757 LuxuryJet" titles on the nose
N62xAU - USairways, dark blue or final colors

I have a pretty good idea what the 787-9 and A330 are, so I won't take any guesses at those.

Heres my guesses:


752

N54XXX - Delta new livery with winglets, or the last nwa livery
N62XXX - I would guess another Delta livery, like the Ron Allen.
TP-XX - Mexican Government
G-BUXX - Ambassador is most likely one and the other I think is an Avianca loanee in Ambassador colours.
D-AMXX - LTU


738
C-GXXX - Westjet, or Sunwing
01XX - Id assume another governmental plane, not too sure which though


789
N15XXX - United Airlines (I think)
C-GXXX - Seen as though NG has already done an Air Canada, I would think this is Westjet in the new livery
JA8XXX - ANA, perhaps the Star Alliance, Star Wars on the normal livery
B-78XX - Hainan or Xiamen


A330
G-VXXX - Gotta be Virgin Atlantic this time!!
N28XXX - Avianca or US Airways.
TC-XXX - Turkish Government, I think.

American never operated the A330 prior to the merger, only the A300.

I'm going to hoover up all of these if they pan out though.

If G-Vxxx A330 is a Virgin Atlantic reg I don't have, I may pick that up too. Don't think I'm going to want any of the 787's. This last batch with the wonky gear heights has put me off them somewhat.

Indeed. I would love to see L-1011's every month. On the bright side, that's going to make this month cheaper for me.

I'd get an original no-winglets AA 757 or a Darth Vader US Airways 757. Maybe NW bowling shoe or final colors. I'd get a WestJet 787, too.

Beyond those, of the possibilities speculated, little of interest to me this month. Classic early-user A330's like LTU and BMI would be welcome.

I sure hope N54xUS is NWA final livery no winglets, N54xUA in battleship colors, and N62xDL in Ron Allen livery! Reveal the artwork so we can scrutinize them to perfection!

Perhaps the L1011s are not the stellar sellers some on this forum were thinking they would be??
Or perhaps, the other brand's L1011s were better than some on this forum thought, and better than what the reviews of unofficial bloggers tried to preach, and with them having sold very well, there weren't many customers left to buy the same thing over again for a higher price?

Just my thoughts!!

Unless there is a second production run on the horizon or inventory unsold, I don't think that can be said for the Delta L-1011 though. Seems to be already sold out...

Not really. Those other brand's Delta L1011's seem to have significant difficulty selling on ebay, even at lower-end retail prices. At quick glance, roughly fifteen (15) different Delta L1011's available on ebay from the other brand, with seemingly stagnant sales as they've been sitting there gathering dust for weeks.

Versus the NG Delta L1011 that sold out in less than 48 hours, across all web retailers and ebay sellers, despite a near $20 dollar price premium over the other option.

Thank God.

N30xxx - At first glance I thought TWA, but in looking at their historical fleet, all of theirs were N31xxx.... so, that's out. I'll go with Eastern, of some sort; N30xEA

Rich International is also possible, they operated ex-Eastern planes under the same registrations.

Now we're talking, indeed!

I would guess Eastern before Rich Int'l, because Eastern is a much more major carrier. But I'd buy either one.

G-BGXX could be G-BGBC, an L-1011-200 in Negus with "British" titles or Landor, either of which I would buy in a heartbeat.

Mega excited about some possible Negus Red Tails. It could be either G-BGBB or G-BGBC, which were the first two -200s delivered to BA in 1980 and also carried full "British airways" titles upon delivery - so they could be modelled in original delivery condition, which would be nice. Neither were given names on delivery either - these came later when the "British" titles were applied later on in 1980/81.

The G-V*** A330 could also be another Voyager lease such as like Thomas Cook...

Really looking forward to an Ambassador 757 and the other G-BU** could be the Nationair Canada example leased from Ambassador:


Boeing 757-236, Nationair (Ambassador Airways) AN0205210
JetPix [GFDL 1.2 (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/fdl-1.2.html) or GFDL 1.2 (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/fdl-1.2.html)], via Wikimedia Commons

B-78** could be Hainan Airlines standard colours. They have 3 787-9s with that reg sequence

Yeah lol. It'd be amazing to have a Rich Intl Tristar in my collection but tbh I think its Eastern, which is still nice. There is also the off chance that it could be the BEA demonstrator

I guess G-B*** takes in a lot of BA TriStars of all lengths and flavours ? I too am eager to see the Negus editions and hopefully this will be one of them.

Yesss! An Eastern L-1011 is an instant purchase for me! I agree, at least one L-1011 a month would be great! Bring on the UNITED and DELTA -500's!

I was just following on from what Jim had suggested, as the reg was shown as G-BGXX from what BA2936 had posted. Definitely would be nice if we had a Negus in these next releases, and as they’ve just debuted the -200 mould, it looks like another will be included again in this round of releases. Hopefully, we'll get varieties of the Negus c/s across all L-1011 variants in time.

Roughly fifteen (15) different Delta L1011's available on Ebay from 200 pcs made is hardly a bad showing, especially since they're sold out at the wholesale level. Also, this is the slowest time of the year for Ebay sellers, so I wouldn't read much into that.

As much negative info as I see on here about most of the UK retailers I'm not sure why anybody bothers with them. I had no issue securing the Delta in the US, but I understand that it's not typically a viable option for you guys. I'm guessing current situation with EU is not helping either.

Really hoping for an Eastern TriStar this go-around. Everything else is just icing on the cake.

I have no personal interest in buying one, so it's not wishful thinking on my part. But, they did have several ex-EA ships.

That said, I have to think that Rich International is unlikely, at least before getting to the more prominent operators. ANA, ATA, Aer Lingus, other BA livery variants, Cathay, Delta -500, etc etc.

It's not personal. No one brought up an "ABC is better than XYZ" comparison in this thread, until you did. Just about everyone that's participated in this thread, still likes your products too. They didn't like your Delta L1011's as much as the NG ones. So what?? It's not personal.

AC L1011's were a bit of a flop. Reviewers, fanfare (or lack of?), and excessive supply at retailers & ebay sellers all support this narrative. But again, so what?? Your recent DC9's and A320's produced significant fanfare. No one brand will ever reign supreme as the consumer favorite, across all molds. Even NG faces scrutiny about their 737's, 787's, and A330's every single release cycle.

Having bought the AC Air Canada L-1011 and NG's British Airways L-1011, I'll say that the AC version is good, I'd rather have that than the JC /previous GJ/ Dragon versions but the detailing on the NG is another level up. If NG produces an Eastern L-1011, look out.

The C-GXXX gotta be WestJet. I believe Air Canada's 789s start with C-FXXX.

Lol I ordered the Delta L-1011 by NG by Mistake! My pre-order was nearing 12-13 models and I added it to cart by accident and bought it. I chose to keep it but that bare metal finish is just amazing! NG Models seem to be arriving to me with little to no glue added on some parts (No big issues/inconvenience for me) but is lack of glue on some models (slowly loosening up during shipping) a result of rushed production to pick back up on releases since the Tristars delayed their timeframe? Hmmmm....

The rate NG Is going, they might do an AA 787-9 at some point. Something to blow the GJ release out of the water.

A NWA 757-200 in the final livery would be perfect!

To buy a typical NG 757 from the USA to UK is, for example, Model cost $45 Shipping $24 UK Import Taxes $14 thats $83 (Note some shipping rates are high as $43)

Thats about £67 UKP (XE.com) Ebay conversion is typically higher. For a typical UK price to buy UK £39.95
But in the case of some Manufacturers particularly AC, the few limited UK issues disappear fast, leaving a quantity in the States at a disproportionate high cost

Example is A319 British Airways retro BEA. I'll be fine with the Gemini version thank you. Not all of us have a bottomless pit to buy models as soon as they are released.

That is what I am wanting, American Airlines 787-9. That and a Air New Zealand all black 787-9.



And A330-300 in the old dark blue US Airways livery would also be something I am interested in.



I do have a United 787-10 from Gemini and it is a good sample although is partially plastic (like all new Gemini/JC Wings 787s) and doesn't have the bottom antenna. But overall it looks good enough so I'd have to pass on the United version.



Considering JC Wings is now partially plastic they've fallen down a notch so I appreciate NG's 787s, especially if they do American schemes because the Gemini -8/-9 molds are awful.

Well said, you beat me to it and on top of the 20% import tax from US to UK, don't forget the £8 Handling Charge our beloved Post Office adds on!

That is ridiculous!! And you Brits just take it and do nothing about it? Why haven't the people taken to the streets? Where is the outrage? I guess that's the way you want to keep it.....

Meanwhile, our postal system in the U.S. is in huge debt. And our politicians either pass laws to make sure the postal system makes no meaningful reforms or they ignore proposals that would put the postal system back into the black. You know how we are in the U.S. We want our stuff for free, and we want our free stuff now!!

Not sure which system is the broken one now.....
