It's not considered a fantasy if it actually existed. This one has of course been built and painted and even flew although obviously not in revenue service.

Was being sarcastic about the 'fantasy' (as in IT's 340/380 dreams; and like the Phoenix A380 model), hence the Wink

This is a good looking model nonetheless.

Here are a few pics of an old 1:100 Travel Agency models of Air India 707-300 VT-DPM "Makalu", made my Skyland Models, circa 1960s.

Was on eBay, till the buyer pulled the listing. Would have loved to get my hands on this one ... another classic !

I just got the A300 VT-EHQ 'Cauvery'. Now Aeroclassics should release a 742 to complement it. Pics coming soon.

Another old school Travel Agency model..... this time a 1:72 Air India Lockheed Constellation VT-DGL "Rani of Jhansi", which has been restored (hence the "VT" wrongly marked as "VI" and missing props). It's on eBay, with a starting price close to US $600. Should be interesting to see if & how much she goes for.

Here you are Karan, the 1:400 Air India fleet (19 in AI colors, 2 in IC colors). Pics are not that great, and don't do justice to the models.

Matchbox Continental 787-8 (Base Model) : $2.75
2 Air India Baggage Labels: Courtesy Air India check in counter
Sticky tape, scissors, and an hour's worth of eye strain

One Air India 787-8 in special livery (retro colors) : Priceless !!!

A Saturday evening's worth of killing time, & I came up with this ! Hope you like the 'Maharaja' Tail !! The 'hybrid' colors almost remind me of the 757 leased from Golden. Maybe it's the effect of the blue CO tail, & the arch-less windows. And yes, I just had to extract those oversized Matchbox landing gear witha pair of pliers !

That's the same pic for the DW 1:400 AI 767, which I suspect it really is. Haven't seen a pic of the real 1/500 Sky500 B767 yet.

Sammky, you are right but if the model is going to come in regular production it will be a third of the price and may be still better quality... That why I am Confused . Having said that being an Air India livery fan (does not mean an AI fan), I am glad I bought it.

Considering that you paid almost US$72 (+shipping) for it, it better be good !! Smile
How about posting some pics fo the rest of us, once you get it in the mail ?


The AV400 A321 VT-PPA is now in the market...you may wanna grab that one too, from the same seller.

Just got this new Air India 747-237 desk model
Pacific Miniatures. Scale: Unknown (I suspect 1:200)
No Registration, No Aircraft Name, No "Your Palace in the Sky" titles
Looks a classic - should be early '70s made.

Here are a few pics of an old school Air India 747-200 made by MAXWELL INDIA (Calcutta) - a classic toy from the 1980s! Wonder if these are still available in India ??
(Incase you're wondering, No, I do not own this model).

You mean on the box ? It says Lufthansa ... though I agree, it looks like KU ! I like the little tag that says Air India, stuck over Lufthansa ! Gotta love those old school models.. They seem to have a charm of their own !

In my personal opinion, the Phoenix 1:400 AIX mould is far superior than that of the Hogan 1:500.

Thanks for your input. The Phoenix one also fits into my scheme of things (I like many, prefer the 1:400 version).. Alas! The ModelArt folks express their helplessness in executing personal requests.. say, the current govt laws are inhibiting toy imports from China/HKG. I am not sure about ordering them online as I prefer the real world retail experience. Guess it will have to wait till my next trip abroad.
