I think the only one made was All Nippon Airways? Have never seen that one come up for sale and can't understand why they didn't make more in different airline colours?

It would be nice to have more planes with opening parts. I'd be happy with more plastic parts as long as there is more detail and the parts don't warp or discolor after a few years. At least we have the JCW Beluga XL which is more modern.

The ANA ones are PAX 747s, while the 747Fs are Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA), which used to be in the ANA group and had a similar livery.
A total of 3 versions were made IIRC. They come up occasionally in second hand stores in Japan like "ホビーランドぽち", but I do hope for some new release as well, both PAX and Cargo ones.

Yes, such a lovely yet expensive model. Retailed for just shy of $300.
