Well that's not entirely true, as they also have a 1/200 scale Convair 580 and have done that in more liveries including Frontier Airlines. If they didn't care as you say, then why make new moulds of the Convair 580 in both 1/200 and 1/400 scales, but hardly use them, yet both would sell well surely?
The missing B.707s still needed to be done in 1/400: Uganda Airlines, Luxair,
DC-8s still needed to be done in 1/400: UAT, Iberia ('80s scheme), Air Ceylon, Air Spain, Seaboard World (-63CF)
Aeroclassics Comets still missing- Dan Air (4 & 4C), United Arab Airlines/Misrair/Egyptair, Kuwait AW, Sudan AW, East African AW, Saudi Royal Flt.
