I think the missing ones are the Allegheny, America West, Piedmont, and PSA A319's with American titles.
And also the US Airways heritage A321 with American titles.

Both the Faucetts are back up for ordering NOW so grab them while you can.

Apparently some a-hole ordered the entire batch of all of them hoping to resell them at a massive markup on eBay. What a ****

I am getting so sick of reading about these antics, for crying out loud. These morons are ruining the hobby for the rest of us - shame on them

Good on Andrew for doing that - at least it gave collectors another chance to pick one up. JetCollector are putting theirs up at 8:00am PST and will have 1 per customer for 48 hours, so good on them too 👍

People did this with the LAB and VASP 727's, some sellers put up around 5 of them on ebay separate ebay auctions (1 up at each time of course).
Quite annoying, having to pay around $30 more than what I would pay for retail, lucky Andrew's giving my wallet a break with these releases.

The simple answer to that is don't line these guys pockets. You don't HAVE to buy anything. If you do choose to pay inflated eBay scoundrels, you're only contributing to the problem.

Exactly like some a**hole in Liverpool called 'Wings400' has put them on E. Bay UK at £135.00 ....and Simonblack20 in Australia has them for $237.60 + $41.28 postage!!!! Pure greed and ruining the hobby. If everyone avoids these people, they finally may get the message that their greed does not pay and they cannot sell at those prices !

Nothing important, just a funny clip from south park, with a bank teller informing customers that their investment "is gone" after a few seconds. Just like on Aeroclassics direct.

Nice releases! Slightly annoyed that the flag logo is missing from the US Airways wingtip fences but I grabbed the retro A321 anyways.

Also! The Faucetts are up at Jetcollector right now so head over there quickly

I was gladly able to lock up the two Fauetts. Thanks to AC for the re-release and VERY special thank you to Jetcollector who put measurable effort into providing a fair chance for all to get a copy. Can't wait until they arrive!

Do models disappear off Jet Collector's page when they're sold out?
Do they halt pre-orders when their allocation is depleted?
Do they actually know how many they're going to get?

Thank you Michael Magdaleno, that is exactly what I did this morning! As a result, I was able to buy them and the AA Heritage livery A321 and A319's.

My wife was not impressed!!

From what I’ve seen, Jet Collector has a live stock holding system and items that sell out disappear from the site as soon as this happens, including pre-order items...

Ordered the 3 classic 707’s. These are nice add-ons to very early AC releases made on this mould way back in 2003...already have the first SQ pair from back then, one pax and one cargo. This pax one (9V-BEY) differs not only in registration but also config with a cargo door, so a nice addition. An ex-Continental machine. The Cathay pair are also different to the first “secret” 2003 releases, as they sport fully polished bellies for the first time rather than painted silver. VR-HGP has the registration on the tail, in contrast to the earlier version which has it lower down in the cheat-line. The cargo version has fully blanked off windows too, which the original release did not have. So, nice variations to compliment the earlier ones, and plugging gaps for interested collectors.

Nothing for me this month. I already have an older AC Cathay 707, and am not interested in AA heritage liveries (cool to see the real thing at the airport, models just not a collecting item for me).

Nothing for me from Aeroclassics and NG in the same month.

As Adrian and Big Al said: you do not have to buy models. Do not buy them from eBay scalpers. Show some discipline, and help yourself and all in the hobby.

That LAB release was quite important to me, as it was one of the first videos I watched of a 727 when I was a kid.
https://youtu.be/gwel7Ulmrvs
I was pretty young and I was still learning about the different aircraft types and that video made me fall for the 72 and made it my favourite aircraft.
I wouldn't normally be that desperate to get a newly released model, but what can you do if it's an important model to you. I ended up scoring some other very rare models from this seller for quite cheap, so the average price was still cheaper than buying the model from my AC dealer.
I think it's up to Andrew to make all models 1 per person/address to combat this issue! if someone tries to buy more than one, they should have to write an explanation as why they need more, or they can only order multiple 48 hours (or so) after the models initial announcement, this gives all potential customers a fair go so there's enough to go around.

June's Aeroclassics arrivals at the hangar. The proliferation of Airbuses gave me the chance to add the SAS release from a few months back and I recommend grabbing some of these spares bags which'll come in super-handy.

No - none of the spare bags have 747 parts in them presumably because AC doesn't own the mould. Checkout the website it says what's in each bag

My order's in. Great to have some spares to make repairs after a hard landing. The difficult part is removing what remains in the gear bay after a break. Still learning, Doug

Yes does anyone have any tips on that. Are there specific mini drillsets you can get that don't cost the earth?

We do have such a policy in place, and I do closely monitor all orders. We do completely cancel the orders of those who abuse, and they end up with nothing.

Best tool in my experience is a Dremel Tool (w/ accessories) as offered on Amazon, (U.S): Dremel 200 - two speed rotary tool kit. $49.
Dremel 689-01 - carving and engraving rotary tool accessory kit. $9.99
A couple pointers: steep learning curve, and I'm on the low end - the Dremel eats up zinc hungrily. Avoid the variable speed Dremel - the speed control rheostat is flaky and unreliable. Doug
