Default Limox 1/100 Models??

Howdy,

Lufthansa is selling Limox 1/100 scale models.

Anyone have experience of Limox? They look like Graphideco/Superscale models (are they?)? Made in Germany or China? Are they like the Lupa models?

At these prices (350 Euros) they are competing with PacMin and Space and so are more expensive than the 250ish Euros of Graphideco.

Comments appreciated.

Thanks!

I used to have a Limox 1/100 787 in Boeing colours. It wasn't that bad, but the flight deck glazing decals were not quite right, that irritated me, so I traded it on. The finish and 'feel' of the model wasn't bad, but I'm not sure I'd buy another one. Last weekend, I got a Lupa 1/100 Royal Jordanian A340 with landing gear supplied. I'd say that the quality of the Lupa is better than the Limox.

Well, there you go, saved me the bother. Mine was an ebay 'second chance to buy' for £55. Seller was being messed around by a guy ref postage. Comes with a nice Royal Jordanian box too

Guys, they are all china. There are like 3 or 4 makers. Even makers who claim their products are made inside their country buy large quantities from China. I also know a maker from Indonesia, but I do not know if they exist anymore ...

But then, this 1:50 748 isn't shabby either. 2995 euros.

Definately going to have to order that 1/50 A330-300. I use to be part of the LH team which would take delivery of the aircraft from TLS bring them back to FRA and fly with them on service routes to JFK, CAI, KRT, ABV, LOS and DXB.

Happy days........
