Emailed them, here is the reply:
Dear ******

Thank you for the email which you have sent to us. Unfortunately there were many errors on the samples of the models and these have all been corrected now before the models go into production, basically a sample is so that we can adjust the scheme on the models where needed to get it right which of course we hope we do.

These models are now in production and will be ready to ship we hope by the end of this month

Kind regards

Bob ****

Wow, that quick a reply. You should have told them to scrap the Kaghan and do either Islamabad or Lahore instead. At least the second model would have been correct in the case of the wing root fairing issue.

They are not produced as yet, pics you see above are of prototype/test models only, they will be in production soon and then released. From what guys mentioned above you are looking at close to $200.00/model!....Kinda expansive for a 1/200 scale diecast in my opinion.

They should not cost more than $150 at the most.

Looking good! Will get these soon.

Only thing, why is the text "Kaghan Mountain Paradise / Karachi Green Turtle Waters" dark green? It should be black. Also it is missing the green outline on the PAX doors (on beige side).

Anyhow, these two will sit nice alongside my IF200 PIA 747-200 90's colours!

Unfortunately the colors are way off. The beige is much too yellow and the Karachi/Kaghan text too light. I'll only go for the Karachi version.

I was really considering to buy one of these when first announced, but not anymore, there are issues with final release, just doesn't look right and yes as Moin pointed color Beige is to dark n yellowish too much on these models.

The pantone number used is the correct one that the PIA beige colour is. It exactly matches the Phoenix models beige colour which were spot on.

Everything is perfect, just them Slogan titles/colour got me abit dissapointed and PAX door outline.

agree with you on this! The colour does look off, the titles at the rear of the aircraft are not done properly, the engines are the wrong size/the inner ones are almost vacuuming the floor!, the P in PIA has the wrong font. Its a total loss.

Should email the guys at http://www.inflight200-models.com/ and express your dissapointment. Go to EMAIL US on the homepage. They do reply back!
