I found the model available for sale at two different Taobao retailers both selling it as Sebastian Model, although one helpfully also mentioned the brand as NG. It does indeed seem to be using the NG Models (ex-Panda Models) ARJ21 mould so presumably this is a release made by NG Models for whomever is behind this new Sebastian Model?
The model is of a factory primer finished ARJ21-700 destined for China Southern. As the model is in primer it doesn't carry a registration. The listings say the model was released in May 2021.
The box carries a Sebastian Model logo on it suggesting that this isn't just a one-off release but like YU ModeLs from last year has pretensions to produce more models. The box also has the dates 1974-07 - 2021-01 on it but I am unsure what the significance of that is. The model also comes with a collector's card with the model number on it and the statement it is 'LIMITED TO 200 PCS'.
Does anyone have anymore information about this release and who Sebastian Models are?
