They're already up on Airplane Replicas website. I don't know why the "other" forum will announce them tomorrow.
The DC-10's and 8's are good looking. Those A319's will be dust magnets on retailer shelves.

I actually think it will be exactly the other way around.

Indeed, I think a lot of people here have no idea how big the Chinese market for these is...

I have not heard of those A319s until this very moment. Looked them up, why different names but the same liveries?

Indeed, why make obscure Chinese Airbus liveries when there are still many well-known 'classics' to make. Very disappointed no propliners this month!
Where are the DC-4s,DC-6s, DC-7s,Viscounts, HS748s and F27s for the European market?

AF and Corsair DC-10s for me, I may be tempted by one of these Chinese A319s too.

Couldn't agree more. And don't forget the Il-18 and Fokker 28, I badly miss them.

I think because they sell. The Hong Kong/Chinese collactor market is very large, we just don't hear from them on an English speaking forum.

You could say that about other manufacturers too.

This is something that a lot of people on this forum and other forums need to realize. That this fact is true, and that is why Phoenix keeps releasing a bajillion Asian and Chinese airlines every month.

Right you are my friend!!
As a point of fact, the market in China (and even the Australian market) is now bigger than the US market, and these 3 models, contrary to the naysayers here on DAC, are not collecting dust on the shelf, but are already sold out!!

(to clarify; more Chinese airliners are sold in China, than U.S. airliners are sold in the U.S.A. & more Australian airliners are sold in Australia, than U.S. airliners are sold in the U.S.A.) My personal belief, is that under Obamunism the U.S. market has shrunk overwhelmingly since 2009.

Sounds pretty logical to me and fine if you are Chinese, but can't see these selling too well in the rest of the world. I hear there are also more European airliners sold in Europe that U.S. airliners sold in the USA, yet we still have no European classics (and I mean propliners) this month, but here comes an Evergreen DC-8 which somewhat contradicts your theory.

I have never heard many Europen/US airlines as well...and I did not ask why AC make those airlines......even I won't buy these 3 models and I think AC should make some other chinses airlines first, but I respect others as they may want these current airlines as they are fly with them every day.
The propliners...you even can list 6 of them, just wait for different livery,
but for us, we currently do not have any 1:400 AN-24/26/30, Y-7, AN-12, Y-8 moulds yet, these aircrafts is the important memory for many people living in the rest of world.

I'd prefer this forum to be a politics free-zone.

There is no proof to back up your comment on it being Obama's fault. Why bring it up? Because you do not like the President? Then go to a political website. I'm here for airplanes.
