Default Most Overlooked Aircraft in 1:400??

This isn't even in my own collecting criteria, but I was incredibly surprised to learn that no one has ever done an updated standard-livery Alaska 737-400. Both Herpa and DW/JX did one in the early 2000's, on inferior/obsolete tooling. But, since then, no one else has made an updated Alaska 737-400. Neither the standard livery, nor the Combi.

What else do you all think are some of the most overlooked types in 1:400, that have existing tooling but have never been done??

There are a stack of ignored MD-80s that have never been made for major European flag carriers - not even by Dragon Wings. I'm thinking such obvious and classic schemes as these:

SAS McDonnell Douglas MD-81 (DC-9-81) OY-KHO KvW-1

MD80-CX

McDonnell Douglas MD-83, Finnair JP6213165

McDonnell Douglas MD-81 (DC-9-81), Austrian Airlines AN1009413

There are some pretty obvious US ones too:


Frontier Airlines (1950-1986) MD-82; [email protected], September 1982 AKO (5127219182)

Perhaps NG or another manufacturer can produce another MD80. The current molds are mediocre!!

The Frontier MD-80 is the most shocking to me, that it hasn’t been made.

I'll jump on the MD-80 bandwagon as well with a couple more US majors never done:





I know - most people hate the Ron Allen colors but it's a flown on for me. And come on - the Planet 727 in the background has even been done

Speaking of 727's, maybe not quite as much of an oversight, but still:

Some very obvious 747 but get ignored:
China Airlines 742 blossom livery pax version---only C&C done this before, with DW, PHX, JC all doing their 744 over and over, but no idea why no one ever bother the 742
Swissair 742---no one done this before
JAL 743 90's livery---with GJ, BB, DW all doing their 744 and 744D over and over, no body cares the 743
KLM 742SUD pax version---no one done this before
SAA 743 old livery---no one done this before

I really hope BB3 would get these gems done.

Not to mention Gemini's 737-400 mould in 1/400 is quite nice. Underutilized for sure.

The SAA in this very same livery but in an SP, would be absolutely AWESOME!!!! It's been a Holy Grail for me since the world started spinning!!

To me, the MD-80 and 734 seem to fit the criteria specified by the OP the most.
