Re: Canadian Warplane Heritage CWH005 Avro Canada

Very unlikely. The last release almost didn't make it as CWHM were quite concerned at the cost of the production run. Diecast prices have increased a lot since the Arrow tooling was first made.

Re: Will we EVER see a Dash 8-300?

Perhaps ANA own the mould as they paid for it? Therefore Hogan can't use it for any other livery without ANA's permission or paying them a fee?

Re: Inflight 200 Lufthansa Concorde 2nd post
