  • Where to get model plane?

    Hi there,
    I guess I am the kind of an airline fan in someway. I am trying to get the kind of planes I've flied with in 1:400 scale with a stand. So generally, I will try to get Dragon Wings models. However, Dragon Wings don't make ever single types of airliner. I am still short of the following:
    Qantas, 737-300, 737-400, 737-800, 717, 767-300, Dash 8
    Jet Star, 717-200, A320
    Virgin Blue, 737-700, 737-800, Embar E170
    Air China 777-200, A330-300
    China Eastern, A300-600
    China Southern 737-800
    Hainan Air 737-800
    Cathay Pacific 777-300, 747-400
    Dragon Air A330-300
    Singapore Air, 777-200, 777-300, A380
    Air New Zeland A320

    Where can I get 1:400 scale well made model with stand for those models?
    Thanks

        You will find them, it just takes time. Its taken me 12 months to find some models on Ebay, and 2 of them came up at the same time.

          Does anyone makes models as I've specified above? Does any other model make apart from Dragon Wings produces stand for the model?

              By the way, if you want a stand, you can buy them separately. That way, you won't be limiting your search to only the ones with a stand in the package.
              I think Gemini makes one that fits most models.

                  Thank you, can you get the stand on the EBay? How much do they normally charge you for that? How do you attach a stand on to the model? Thank you

                    No thanks. Ebay's listings fee are too high compared to last year.

                    As said in the previous post, I only got the SIA 772ER, see link about 10 models down.

                    Btw All models made by Dragon has a plastic stand included in every pack, Gemini Jets provides only half of its releases with metal stands.

                    You can check the free aviation collector forums.
                    Ask them if any of the members got any of those models you listed at the first post. Sometimes it's also cheaper than Ebay, as we go around the high listing fees, initiated by Ebay a few weeks ago.

                      First try a local hobby store. But if that fails, I think you might find some of what you seek here:

                      http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_t/...odels&x=5&y=18

                      There are over 800 models and I'm sure you will find something.

                        You can buy stands for Gemini jets, they are metal stands. Some... and i mean very few come with stands but Gemini are better quality and typically have a higher return value over Dragon.

                        Qantas, 737-300, 737-400, 737-800, 717, 767-300, Dash 8
                        Dragon makes a Qantas 733, out of production in 2000. No 737-400 has been made for Qantas, Gemini, Herpa, and Phoenix are the only ones to make a 738. Phoenix makes a 717 for Qantas (LINK), and Big Bird, Phoenix, Aeroclassics, and Gemini are the only ones to make a 767 for Qantas and finally the Dash 8 is only from Gemini.

                        Jet Star, 717-200, A320
                        Phoenix makes both of these models, they even have the Avis and Budget car rental 717's.

                        Virgin Blue, 737-700, 737-800, Embar E170
                        The only Virgin Blue aircraft made is the 738 from Gemini, nobody even makes a E170 for anything... yet, that will be Gemini too.

                        Air China 777-200, A330-300
                        Dragon is working on a 777-200 but has not been released. Also no A333 for Air China has been made, just the A340.

                        China Eastern, A300-600
                        Aeroclassics released two of these aircraft last year. http://www.wings900.com/modeldatabas...iew-16936.html

                        China Southern 737-800
                        No China Souther 738 has been made.

                        Hainan Air 737-800
                        Only Herpa has made a Hainan 737-800. I highly recommend staying away from Herpa.

                        Cathay Pacific 777-300, 747-400
                        These shouldn't be hard to find. http://www.jetcollector.com/Merchant...roduct_Count=3 I have that one, great model.

                        Dragon Air A330-300
                        Dragon released two of these models, but way back in 1998, so they don't look too great, Phoenix released one a couple years ago.

                        Singapore Air, 777-200, 777-300, A380
                        These should be very easy finds minus the A380 despite dragon as usual over releasing them, the Phoenix one is great!

                        Air New Zeland A320
                        There one one released from both Dragon and Herpa, both are the same aircraft in the Lord of The Rings livery.

                        http://www.wings900.com/modeldatabase/ that should help you find them too. It tells you if there are any people looking to sell or trade those models that your looking for.

                          Thank you so much for your help, I have never seen a list like this before, by the way, Dragon Wings don't make any BA plane right? Further, I can't get stands for these most these one right? Not even an after market one. How do you know what model Dragon Wings are up to?

                            Nope Dragon doesn't make any BA aircraft, closest thing is Jetx which gets all their molds mostly from other sources IE ADI (Gemini) and Dragon. All the Gemini's you can buy after market stands for, they are a bit more costly because they are metal stands. You can find them at many retailers online. As for what dragon is up to, I worked at a hobby shop and still talk to the owners quite a bit, you can also typically find out things on their website. As far as stands for Dragon... nope I have not seen any anywhere, I know at the hobby shop we couldn't get them, sometimes even models would come without the stands.

                              have you tried geminijets yet? a lot of models are made by them. and with metal landing gear there will be less a chance of them being broken dureing delivery
