Gemini appear to make more collector focused models in 1:200 scale presumably because corporates don't order such large scale models and older collectors and ex-employees of the airlines (who are more classics friendly) often collect the larger scale. I'm just guessing.

As to why they made the moulds in 1:400 - who knows? Look at Herpa
