Default 1/200 Spacemodels British Airways Boeing 777-200 Chelsea Rose

Hi Guys

Found this little gem in my cupboard during a clearout the other day. My father used to work for British Airways and this was given to me as a gift when I went to the office for a tour. I was wondering if anyone could give me any more information on it, rarity, value etc. The model is in relatively good condition, apart from what can be seen there is some paint damage around the base of the fin and tail cone. Thanks

In its very good condition, the model is worth about £40. So with the damage you mentioned, not much I guess. It certainly means much more to you personally though.

1/200 travel agent style (resin with no gear) models don't seem to hold much value, because there is so much competition from Gemini/Inflight/Herpa etc. I'd agree, £40 max for mint. If it was 1/100 scale, you could multiply that price by 5 or 6 for a mint model.

is there any particular reason why larger models fetch so much more?

To me it looks quite like a model made by KV Wooster, but with a different stand.
If it has a Space Models tag on it, perhaps Space bought a batch of (relatively cheap) Wooster models and rebranded them after adding a stand of their own design, plus the BA plaques.

Is the tailfin removeable, or are fuselage and tailfin one single piece ?

Hi alastairjeromeball,

Thanks for posting the pic of your model.

Always comes down to what someone is willing to pay, in order to acquire any item.



IMHO

the tailfin is removeable yes. as far as the rebranding, spacemodels have stamped the bottom of the stand. which is why i assumed they manufactured it.

Thanks for the info
It's an interesting model in any case, I have not seen another one like it.
Enjoy this little piece of BA history.

I have four models like this one. BA had them made by Space in the late 1990s early 2000s. They are Space 1/200 models and all came in boxes with lids. The only one I don't have a photo of to hand is the Benyhone Tartan. Otherwise mine are here. They are good quality models. To clarify, the tailfin is not removable. The horizontal stabs are removable.
