Several of the July releases are already up for sale on eBay, despite no official announcement yet from any of the retailers.

Though at this point, they should probably just be called August releases, I suppose.

Piedmont 767 and Delta L-1011 especially of interest to me.

I would love to see the various Piedmont 767 USAir bare-metal hybrids!

Seeing some of these models on eBay now. Are my eyes playing tricks on me, or are there B767-200s being released with two different landing gears? The Piedmont in the post above shows the ugly big wheels, but there are a couple of them on eBay that show smaller tires. The Delta B767-200s appear to have smaller tires too. The smaller tires definitely make the models look better and not "toy-like".

Tanzania 767 (possibly the Delta 767), and Delta L1011 for me at least...…. hoping the Air Zimbabwe 90's colours 767 is on the way soon!

I never thought Iíd see the day, where Iíd pass up a Delta L1011. But, thereís too many errors for me on this version. Mostly of the ďrivet countingĒ variety, but still too many for my own taste. Looks like Iíll hold out for the NG.

Itíll be a Piedmont 767 for me this month, and thatíll be all.

Air Tanzania 767 for me. That one has caught my eye. Nice exotic scheme on a 767.

Some retailers may also have a bonus Dragonair pair of L-1011s too. This was the special show exclusive model of the Shanghai Show.

I've always found the Delta Ron Allen livery exceedingly ugly so I can't figure out why that 767 is so tempting.

The employees had an ugly relationship with Ron Allen at the time as well, but this is a "flown on" for me, so many thanks to Andrew for making it!

I’m sorry, but the new ACs look terrible. The L1011 just is not the right shape. And printing on the 767s is weak... look at waffles pics. The Piedmont right side looks like an old Schabak. I appreciate the eclectic liveries, but at today’s prices, it’s just not ok to be less than perfect. I’ve bought more NGs in 3 months than total models in the last 18 months. Better not to be defensive and instead improve...

Coming from a guy with 2 posts, I'll take you very seriously

The L-1011 is just not the right shape? Have you ever seen one before?

Harvey, those are the same wheels all the 767s have had since the second round of releases. Everyone was belly-aching when the first round of models came out, so we changed it.

Either your eyes are playing tricks on you, or someone is doing a TERRIBLE job with Macro photography.

The 3 photos I saw disappeared quickly. The background in the photos reminded me of the photos Todd (JustPlaneCrazy) used to take. I only saw the Piedmont, Olympic Delta, and it was either the Ron Allen or the 75th Anniversary Delta that I saw with the smaller tires. Should have taken screenshots of those photos to verify whether I'm going crazy or not.....

Maybe you should note I've been a member since 2009, not the fact I don't like to play with the teenagers on internet message boards.

I've given you lots and lots of $ over the years - happy to provide photos. 500+ models. You're welcome.

Maybe focus on taking constructive feedback regarding QC instead of discrediting your customers. I'll send you pics of the AeroPeru 767 I bought. I love the model, but printing on the engines is at a 30 degree angle. Are you as a business owner cool with that? Or is pointing that out an insult somehow?

Jeez. WTF.

I got one too Never got to fly Piedmont unfortunately, but I saw their 727's all the time at TYS when I was a kid. The Ron Allen 762 also filled a hole in my "flown on" collection, and it looks great, so this was a good month for me.

Received my copy of Aeroclassics Air Tanzania B.767-200 ET-AIZ. Stunning model, stunning colours. Love it.

Oh yes. PSA and Piedmont were way better airlines than USair ever was.

I'd like to also echo that I too reluctantly decided to pick up the Air Tanz, I'm glad I did. Besides two details that bother me, (giraffe on the tail is too light in comparison to the AC 737s and really fades too much as it goes up the tail. Also, the white paint around the nose cone is a bit translucent and you can see the cheat lines beneath it). I'm' really very happy to have this and to AC's credit, no one else will probably make this. It's (the AC 767-2) also a model I've found much more pleasant in person that what I've seen in pictures.

100% agree Eric. The models are much better in the flesh, than in most photos; Enjoy!!
