Default Extremely rare Inflight 200 models - MUST SEE

Dear Collectors,

I suggest that you keep collecting extremely limited edition models produced by Inflight 200, especially the ones produced for Retro Models, as once they are sold they are almost impossible to find!

In December 2014, I spent thousands of dollars having commissioned some very low quantities of various Inflight 200 models made exclusively for Retro Models.

One such model was the PIA DC-10 (AP-AXD) of which only "72" were made by Inflight 200. I have attached a copy of the model listing on the IF200 website. Yes, just 72 produced.

I personally sold about 6 of these and I have 2 of these in my own collection. I also sold a few to ARD in England and another distributor Cleveland Diecast in England. Others were sold to the Aviation Megastore in the Netherlands, Aviation Centre Berlin, Gulliver in Japan and to other small shops around the Globe and a few remained unsold despite the very low production run and despite me trying to throw them away at a loss.

So where are all these PIA DC-10s now? Well, according to eBay all 72 (except 2 in my garage) plus many more are being thrown away on eBay, and a further 100 on Alibaba (Ali Express).....and guess what? They are all in China, not far from the factory they were produced in.

Please see the attached file showing the Alibaba seller's listing, and please refer to the following eBay auctions:

I am now tired of copying and pasting all the links as there are many more auctions, but there are tons and tons of these being sold on eBay, so please do a search for Inflight 200 AP-AXD on eBay and you will see the ones available. Furthermore, if you see the completed listings on eBay you shall see many more that were sold.

There's a lot more to this story that I shall reveal in the coming days.
