Default Aeroclassics Sale Arrivals

Hey lads (are there any ladies?). With both Waffle and DiecastAirplane throwing bumper AC sales in the past few weeks I couldn't help but dabble in their offerings. The parcels are still getting through to NZ.

Here's what I picked up. A nice mix of the excellent range Aeroclassics delivers. The MAOF and Finlantic are particular favs as they are so obscure. There'll be a MAOF Airlines blog post coming up in the next few months but I'm struggling to find material about Finlantic - anyone got any sources?

Anyway what did you get from the AC sales??

For a while I have been wondering what happened to the 720 mould. Seems the nose cone got deformed somehow?


The Finlantic is just wrong. It was black, not blue. The crews referred to them as the red and the black one.

The 720 mould hasn't changed other than the nosegear.

Are you sure about the Finlantic? It was certainly darker than AC have made it but other sources seem to have it blue too but there aren't many colour photos:


WINGS PALETTE - Douglas DC-6/DC-7 - Finlantic

This colour shot doesn't really clear things up too much
