Default 1:400 History - Sovereign Models

Sovereign was a short-lived brand that produced a small range of models using Gemini and SMA moulds. Although at the time it was suggested they were an independent group this was not the case:

When did the Gemini 747-200 mould get the wing antenna?

I hadn't realised the connection between Sovereign and AC until now. I remember those releases being quite hard to get too, I don't have any at all but remember trying to find the Gulf Air Tristar and the Olympic 747 at the time. I do however have the Hangar Club SAS DC-9 that you mention, from that era when I was a club member, a "Sovereign" of sorts then...

I thought Sovereign models were mostly Euro centric releases...

Sovereign got to release the first after re-work? Cool

Because of that connection, it's quite bizarre that Sovereign released an Olympic Airways A340 with correct shade of medium blue trim. Then Aeroclassics released one and screwed up the blue colour printing it dark Navy blue as in the 1960s Olympic scheme!

What I find a bit odd is that with the chosen name there was not one single British release.
