Default September Aeroclassics speculations

DAC needs its own September Aeroclassics speculations thread. Perhaps Mata Hari will make a special stop here; I for one can't get into 400SH.

I would like to see DC-10, DC-9, DC-8, 767, 737, 707, 727. I suspect we'll get a mix of a few of these with various MAX, NEO/CEO, 767, and L-1011.

I'll defer to MAX and NEO/ CEO experts on which of those we might see.

I'd like to see:

DC-10: Pakistan International 80's livery; United blue-star with blue titles
DC-9: Republic MTM, Midwest Express 80's original livery, ValuJet, more Republic/ Northwest hybrids
767-200: Air Zimbabwe z-cheatline livery; Piedmont-USAir hybrids

Jim

Said it before and I'll say it again, and maybe, just maybe it'll happen... Need a Hawaiian DC-10-10 and DC-10-30 for my Hawaiian collection.

I expect to see some 767s and L-1011s along with a mix of some baby buses and maxes. Haven't purchased an Aeroclassics 767 yet, but would snatch up an Air Pacific 767-200 in a heartbeat as well as a Qantas 767-200. It would be great to also see an Air Pacific 737-200. Need some more color in my life!

Ooooh. DC-10s would be nice. Something about that 3rd engine on the tail of DC-10s, MD-11s, Tristars, 727s, DC9s, etc. that I have loved since childhood....

DC-9s are twin jets.

If it’s a bunch of L1011’s and MAX’s, we’re going to start a petition to make you use a “the poster who cried wolf” avatar.

Count me in for the Air Pacific and Qantas 767s! Would also support the Air Pacific 737 but don’t think we’ll be seeing this for some time.

Still waiting for many of the long forgotten retro moulds to be brought back into use. So many modern twinjets on the market and now we are fooded with L1011s! DC-4, DC-6, DC-7, DC-8, DC-9, B707, 720, 727.... where are they all?

The hints from 400SH: 6 different airframes, No 767s, No L1011s, and No Max's. And just one Airbus model to be released. C- , D- , JY- , PK- , XA- , and a boatload of "N"

Thank you, Harvey, I was going to ask if someone could do that.

Most interesting. JY is Jordan. Maybe an Alia 727-200?

Boatload of N....see what I'd like to see above.

C- would love a First Air 737-200 in the rainbow colors.

D- DiMA does not show Aeroclassics ever having done a Condor DC-10. Either the gray or the bare-metal would be welcome. Or how about the Lufthansa-Condor hybrid D-ADSO?

PK- Indonesia. (Surprise! ) Not sure.

XA- Mexico. Reissue of 1970's gold cheatline Mexicana 727-200, please. Another Air New Zealand DC-10 was done, so how about another one of these?

Jim

Would a 737-200 be considered retro this month? Or are we talking more retro than that?

Jim, I'll second your D- suggestion.

There are still plenty of D- classics from the 1980s/90s, which have never been done and which are crying out for an Aeroclassics release:

McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 Condor (grey and white)
McDonnell Douglas DC-9-32 Aero Lloyd (rainbow)
Boeing 737-200/-300 Condor (grey)
Boeing 727-200 Condor (grey)
Caravelle 12R Aero Lloyd (rainbow)
Airbus A310-200 Hapag Lloyd
Airbus A310-200 Condor (grey)
Airbus A330-300 LTU
__________________
Models I want to see in 1/400:
Boeing 737-200/300 Condor (grey), Boeing 737-500 Air France, Boeing 747-200B SAA (white belly), Boeing 757-200 LTU süd, McDonnell Douglas DC-9-32 Aero Lloyd

Yep, it was ZK-NZR. Picked mine up from ARD in January of this year. That one sold out quick.


...would also love to see an Air Malta '80s cheatline B.737-200.

Yes in the old Alia scheme, but not in the stunning dark blue with red and gold trim Royal Jordanian scheme.

Hmmm, we'll see...the 'C- ' can't be that retro or it would be 'CF''

For me, Canadian retro would be a Wardair DC-6, Pacific Western DC-4, Martime Central DC-6 or Herald?

Ah, I see! That's actually quite nice. Didn't realise they made it into that scheme

Only just I think.

Its one of my favourite schemes, the gold is hard to replicate I guess.
Would be very nice on a TriStar too.

I agree it's very classy and hopefully we might see this on an L-1011 too at some point. How well the scheme can be replicated is another matter!

Back on the subject of Aeroclassics speculations, I'd also love to see a PIA DC-10 in '80's green belly c/s and some British Caledonian examples, one in '70's delivery c/s (with titles in CAPITALS) and an '80's version (revised lower case font), both with polished bellies

Here are a few speculations.

JY: Maybe a Royal Jordanian A310-300. It seems a while since we last saw an Aeroclassics A310. Even longer since we saw an A300!

N: Who knows? Too many possibilities. Maybe some of the regular schemes behind the hybrid DC-9s we saw last month.

C- Maybe an Air Transat A310-300, Air Transat, Nationair or Odyssey International B757.

D- Maybe a Condor A310 or DC-10. Otherwise, perhaps a Condor or LTS B757. If any B757s, I hope the cockpit windows are corrected since last month's B757s.

PK: Airfast DC-3 or B737-200? Those would be very nice, although maybe too obscure.

XA: No idea. Mexicana Comet in gold stripe scheme would be nice.

Any of these three DC-10's would be welcome!

DiMA doesn't show a Trans International or Transamerica DC-10 having been done in 1:400.

Well i'm going for more DC-9s, DC-10s, 757, A310, and a return for the DC-8 and 707's! Return of the 737-200 would be great too.....

C- hoping for a Worldways Canada or Nationair DC-8-61 or -62; Odyssey Int'k or Nationair 757-200's

JY - as other have said - the dark grey Royal Jordanian B707 (especially the Cargo variant that flew on into the 90's would be fantastic). An A310-300 in the same 90's scheme would be great too.

D - would also love an Aero Lloyd DC-9-30 in the 90's rainbow scheme (good shout Ciderman). How about a Royal Nepal A310-300?


N - FedEx DC-10-30 - 90's colours would be nice, Trans Continental DC-8-63?

In fairness, it is only the 15th. In recent months, the AC releases have been announced fairly late... 22nd, 23rd, etc.

Great there won't be any 767 and L-1011... given the mould is - well - far below industry standards. Any new release of an interesting airline/livery would be a waste, particularly on the L-1011 mould. And 757s... well, would probably be a tired effort to outmaneuver state-of-the-art 757 producer, NG Models. They (AeroClassics) should stick to the excellent moulds they still have and skip releasing any new models on the poor ones.

Yes, Aeroclassics absolutely should concentrate on their high-quality classic older moulds.

In the 400SH thread, I offered some suggestions for stretch DC-8's. Would love to see these.

...can't believe an Iberia DC-8 hasn't been done in the '80s red/yellow scheme. Must be the only Iberia jet not made in that scheme in 1/400?

The missing B.707s still needed to be done in 1/400: Ethiopian, Uganda Airlines, Air Zimbabwe (rainbow scheme), Kenya Airways, Air Niugini.

DC-8s still needed to be done in 1/400: UAT, Iberia ('80s scheme), Air Ceylon, Surinam Airways, Air Spain

Aeroclassics Comets still missing- Dan Air (4 & 4C), United Arab Airlines/Misrair/Egyptair, Kuwait AW, Sudan AW, East African AW, Saudi Royal Flt.

An Iberia DC8 in those colors would be amazing.... It would go nicely with the Iberia 727, DC9 and 737. An Air Spain DC8 would also be great too.

Considering AeroClassics has been using the NG 757 mould, your post makes ZERO sense at all!!

Me too, my Spantax Coronado needs a ramp mate. I recall seeing their stretch DC-8's arrive at Glasgow on summer weekend mornings in the early 80's to take Scottish holiday makers away to warmer climes.

Plenty of scope within the British Caledonian DC-10 fleet for some fine releases, in both the DC-10-10 and DC-10-30 series...

A TAE DC-8 would be rather gorgeous too. I'd take the lot - Spantax, TAE, Air Spain, Iberia 80s.
