Re: Advice on problems with ebay seller Buygonewor

Seems you and a couple of other fellow collectors still need to a find a reliable retailer… hard to understand for me, since I’ve never had a model I ordered NOT delivered.

Re: Inflight200 october 2021 releases

I don’t care about ‘removable or not’ when purchasing a model but I’d suspect that per airframe it’s the same like before.

Rather generally spoken: using available moulds for similar models (i.e. E-170/E-175, Fokker 70/Fokker 28, or L-1011-1/L-1011-500) is an antique policy of scale model manufacturers. However,...

True. I think KAL‘s first three 747s had three upperdeck windows only; HL7440 thru HL7442 (the latter was shot down on this day 38 years ago over the Pacific Ocean).
