@Jamied: I can offer you to build a 787-8 Thomson in 1/144th... Here is a sample, build by me: https://www.facebook.com/modellbausa...type=3&theater
The 787-8 can also be done with clear canopy and a cockpit.
Well, all the models are not available in 1:500 scale, only the Qatar Cargo, and this model were released long after Wings of heritage posted his request.
So I would strongly say that it's a good thread to have for people looking for a specific model and don't want to wait for years hoping that the model might possibly be released in the scale wished for, regardless if it's 1:500, 1:400, 1:100 or any other.
