Default Most common 1:400 Airplane Produced.

What's the most common 1:400 you've seen. I've seen a lot of speed bird 747s.

Have seen a ton of releases of Hawaiian A330, and the dang Air 2000 B757-200 by GJ as well as the Air China A340-200 by DW always seem to find a way to come back onto my shelves

However if I wanted a plain EK A380 without any stickers, that I'd actually like in my collection, that's really hard to find

From the following photos I have attached, there are 3 releases of EK A380's not yet sold out, compared to 1 boeing 727 (given, this does not include the Dragster release) which should sell out quickly (and the Aerosucre is a very niche release).
We see around 3 EK A380 releases per year, but we're lucky if we see 1 727 release per year?
I assume most of the EK's are corperate, and sold ithrough inflight sales, but in 2021, how many buy a model of the aircraft they're flying on? Only frequent flyers, but they would most likely have 1 already....

Please realize that corporate and inflight order are in the thousands of units not hundreds. It does indeed keep the lights on.

I am fine with releasing A380 specials that I don't want I just ask that they release the plain livery at least once a decade

Yeah, I want a plain Emirates A380 and 777 released again soon. I usually don’t collect Middle East aircraft but EK would be a nice start. I’ll venture into other airlines like Qatar and Saudia later.

Yeah there's that but it's tantamount to picking up a rock and not collecting a model that's going to be considered a treasured collectors item!! The Emirates issue with models has been killed dead in the water as far as I'm concerned!!

I remember adding Gemini 727's to 'my collection' ages ago, when the database was still functioning, and I recall most of the 727 releases being over 1000 units each.
I just checked the units on N740DH and it says 1500, and this model quite hard to find nowadays.
I couldn't find the production units on the older EK A380 releases.
Not that I'm complaining about these EK releases, I just wish GJ would pump out more 727's...

The days of 1500 or 1000 unit production runs are way over, unless a corporate order.

Just curious, are production runs now usually 500 or less? It's really hard to find production numbers now...I noticed that in the DIMA database, it normally just says "limited" on just about everything produced after 2007 or so...

A lot of the earlier Gemini Jets (up until about 2003 or so) routinely had production runs of 2500 units.
I'm still curious what a "normal" production run is now... I would assume 500 units or less... does anyone know?
