AFAIK, the dayglow colours were introduced by TAA after a ground collision incident plus a few near misses in the late 1950's. Sometime during 1960-61 dayglow orange was painted on the wingtips,...

That would be, IIRC, one of two (three?) samples(?) Andrew had with him when Steve, Bob and I met him as he was passing through Adelaide Airport several years ago. They were the only ones made.

Re: Simple question: Hello, russian airliners!?

Yeah, I'd like to see a whole bunch of Soviet era stuff done in 1:400. It seems that 1:200 & 1:500 are very well catered for with these types. Odd.

Re: NG Models wishlist

Yeah, I'd go a Tu-114 in 1/400 in a heartbeat too. I've often been tempted by the 1/500 Herpa, but it wouldn't fit size wise with the rest of the collection.
