Default IF500 TWA Convair 880 and Swissair Coronado

I normally don't collect 1/500, but how I'm a huge Convairs 880 and 990 fan, I can't resist to buy these beautiful birds on this scale.

I hope to see, one day, a Convair 880 freighter at least on this scale. My avatar is a good suggestion.

I have to agree with you Celso, when it comes to birds I love, I tend to throw the scale out the window. 500th is not what I collect, but these little planes, the Convairs, I will make an exception for. I have only 4 500th's in my collection, one of which is a VARIG 747-400(BB) by the way. It was just too nice to pass up when I picked it up.

The Convairs are a classy airplane. We really need more in 1:400 and 1:200 scale.

I would very much like to see someone graduate to the 1/200 scale!

Ola Celso!!
It's nice to see some "compatriotes" like you and Santos!!!
I simply love those two Convair jets!I'm a 1/500th scale collector and It's a dream coming true these produced by Inflight500!!!!Have ordered the Swissair CV-990 and will sure order the 880 from TWA and Delta!!Hope Inflight will soon release the Varig 990, maybe in the 2 schemes they flew....
Quite off topic but also I'm eager to see much more Brazilian airlines and types in 1/500th scale!!!

BTW feliz e abençoado 2008!!!!

Olá PT-TAA

I am glad you´re here. Sadly I don´t collect 1:500 scale models but my prayers are with you. I do hope you can have a lot of brazilian modls in that scale. In 1:400 we have the Latin Classics line and the GJ select line so we have been lucky than you in 1:500 scale considering the number of brazilian models released. I suppose He has just released a TAM A330 red tail. Is that true?


Abraços e na escuta

Otávio Santos

Dear Alfa Alfa
Very nice to meet you! We are very few Brazilians here. We do, Otávio and I, some requests, from time to time and we have the support of many very nice guys here, such as Don (Yukon 880) and Chris (dc-8-556).
My diecast collection is based on 1/400. But I have many 1/200 models and a few 1/500.
My favorite acft. is the Convair 880. I love the first generation jets and actually fly one: the BETA Cargo DC-8-73F as Flight Engineer.
I will support you on all your requests. We need to have a "Brazilian Air Force" on these foruns.
Saudações e um excelente 2008
Celso
