My Canadian Pacific / CP Air 1:400 Scale Model Airliner Fleet
Updated: January 2019
Canadian Pacific was for over 50 years Canada's second airline, fighting against Air Canada for its piece of the pie as the country's second force (as BCal had to do in the UK). During that time it went through various identities:
The last incarnation was in truth a takeover by Pacific Western but the surviving airline owed more to the original Canadian Pacific than the smaller PWA. Finally in 2001 after a bitter takeover struggle Canadian was acquired by Air Canada and its aircraft began to transition into the Air Canada hybrid colours.
For the genealogy of Canadian please see here.
The airlines that make up the Canadian Pacific family have an excellent representation in 1:400 scale. This includes 31 Canadian Pacific, 31 CP Air, 36 Canadian Airlines Int and 2 Attache releases. It is also one of the airlines that holds its value well on the second-hand market making it quite difficult to build up a large fleet for the airline.
