Speaking of InFlight200, they continue to release many subjects in 1:200 scale that are rare and sought after in 1:400, just FYI. Waffle Collectibles announced earlier in the month the arrival of a nice set of Herpa releases in 1:500 and 1:200. Another small set of 1:200 Herpa pre-orders came via Eztoys, including a Maerks Air DHC-7. Outlook The GeminiJets recent MD-80 trend continues in August with an Aeromexico one in the 1980’s c/s and a USAir one in the early 1990’s. Aeroclassics and Phoenix July announcements came late in the month. Aeroclassics advertised theirs as “Summer.” So we could not be seeing another announcement from them until late August or even September. Featured Article Have you seen the new GeminiJets 767-400?
