Default Boeing 377 Stratocruiser in 1:400

Does anyone know if any manufacturer has done a Stratocruiser, or a Boeing 314 clipper or the Boeing 307 in 1:400 scale?

Dragon has done the 377 in 1:400...as for the others, I doubt there is exactly a 1:400 model, but if you look, I believe there is a manufacturer out there that has done the 314 in something like 1:350 or 1:390. Good luck finding a small model of the 307.

Here are the DW models from my collection....... The second photo shows a DW version and the JX "MIss Universe". There are two PAA B317 models , one by Gorgi and the other by Model Power, both are 1/350 scale, I have both models and I prefer the Gorgi model. There is one B307 model available from Model Power in 1/250 scale in TWA markings, I also have that model and it is very well done.

Aeroclassics promised one, but that was years ago.

Oh please.

God created the world in seven days, will it take you seven years to produce a 377?

Boeing 314 Clipper is made by Corgi (100 years of flight collection). It is not exactly 1:400 but about 1:385 but as there is no other model I think that's acceptable.

I guess the Lord rushed things; this is hardly a perfect world in which we are living!

I stand (sit actually) corrected.

I have no doubt that I will hear that over and over this week (World Youth Day is happening in Sydney this week).

To return to the subject, apparently Mr Klein will need six or maybe seven years to deliver on his 377 promises.

So far its been four. Only two or three to go (maynbe)
