Inflight 200 PIA 747-300

Post by Moin »

Inflight200 is releasing 2 PIA B747-300 models in diecast 1:200 scale for a November/December eta. The models are AP-BFX 'Karachi' and AP-BGG 'Kaghan'. Each model is limited to 180 pieces and will be priced within $200 each.

IF200 are premium diecast model manufacturers and the models are superbly detailed. Here is an example of an IF200 SAA 747-200 which I have:

Yes 2 B747-300's are slated for release in Nov/Dec while the green/gold livery B747-200 is also in the works, at least that is what I was told.

Yes Ive heard that the green/gold was meant to be released. I knew about the Karachi version for ages! lol Didnt realise Kaghan would also be done. I hoped it was AP-BAT Quetta Titles. That tail is amazing. I dont personally like the NWFP tail.

Instead of Karachi, I would have preferred they do Islamabad as that a/c is still in service but I guess this would be a befitting tribute to Karachi.

Looking at the pictures above, I like:

• APU exhaust detail
• Antennae
• Nose-gear detail

I look forward to this release.

I'm only going for the Karachi version as the Kaghan model (BGG) is technically incorrect as that is a late model 743 with no wingtip antennas and 744 type wing root extension and this model depicts the original 743, hence it would have been better had they done Lahore or Islamabad instead.

Howcome number #2 and Number # engines are touching the ground, plus in 2nd picture aircraft is on high nose down attitude!!, i wonder why these errors were not noticed by quality control people of Inflight models...

Moin is right "BGG" in second picture is late model B743 with B744 style wing/body fairing and does not have HF Antennas on wing tips, plus it looks as yellow on the tail is too bright compared to real aircraft.

The cockpit decals seem to be off as well. Not to mention there should be no APU door on the port side.

These are pics of pre-production sample models only. Hopefully the final production version won't have these flaws.

As for BGG, I guess it had a 4G landing :?
