Below are a selection of last month's NG 787-9s:
Heathrow Fair Specials
The tyranny of distance means that I will not get to visit the Heathrow aviation fair next week but Keith (BA2936 on DAC) will be representing NG Models at the fair and will have 7 special releases for the fair - all limited to 100 pieces each.
These mainly represent hybrids of previous Air Europe releases (and of course the obvious Air Europa) but also provide the first opportunity to acquire an NG Models 737-800 with a Danish Britannia Airways example present too.
To be honest a couple of these could easily have been full releases - I'm thinking the BMI and Thomas Cook. Hopefully a standard Thomas Cook release will follow in time:
Republic - Northwest Transitionals
Next up there are 8 757s from the USA representing every permutation of the aircraft transitioning from Republic into Northwest's scheme. Already NG has done the base Mary Tyler Moore Republic 757 and the Northwest Orient 757 and now you can get the complete picture as the MTM's became Red tails. I like the fact that NG goes out of its way to produce these sort of variants and I assume it is only a marginal extra cost to modify the printers a little for each. Having said that a couple of these seem a little superfluous even to me. Nonetheless I'll be looking at getting several I expect.
More widely sought after mainline 757s from the States also feature. I for one have already sold my old Gemini Delta in anticipation of this NG release.
The early NG Models 787-9s have already proven themselves to be very good models - see the detailed 787-9 review comparison two parter here:
NG continue with 4 more Chinese 787s this month and are first to market with the 787th 787 special scheme China Southern:
Lastly for November NG Models continue to produce a nice range of CRJs expanding upon previous releases for Maersk Air/BA, Lufthansa and Air Canada Jazz:
