# OF MODELS MADE: 15
Updated: January 2024
Airshop Diecast is one of the new generation of retailer exclusive brand lines that have sprung up in recent years taking advantage of Panda Models willingness to produce models for others. They are a Jakarta based store run by Kenney Hendrian and his cousin who provide excellent service both from their shop and via their Instagram and Facebook pages.
I have been buying from Airshop for several years now and the customer service provided by Kenney has been amazing, even going so far as to buy models for me on the second-hand market in Indonesia and then sell them on to me. I can highly recommend their store.
Airshop's first model was the Boeing Business Jet that is flown by the Indonesian Air Force. This used the old Panda Models 737-800 mould and was released in 2017:
In 2018 and 2019 there were several Panda releases exclusive to the Indonesian market using both the A340-300 and Boeing 737-300 moulds but I'm not 100% certain they were specifically for Airshop. The next definitely Airshop release was a pair of Batik Air A320s in 2020:
These were followed by a trio of Batik 737-800s in different livery variations and a pair of Sriwijaya Air 737-800s:
Most recently in 2023 there has been a spread of A320s and 737-800s:
Of course Airshop Diecast isn't the only Indonesian retailer making exclusives with Panda as Harry's Diecast / MP4 is active also, however the two stores have worked to not tread on each other's toes so there have been no duplicate releases. 2024 will bring a further trio of A320s from Airshop Diecast. This time the subjects will be another scheme variant for Pelita Air and a pair of Super Air Jets:
