I have a theory that the ANA models were never destined for Europe. Scalemodelstore, never listed them for sale (but listed the others). Shops like ACB and Aviation Retail Direct listed them on their sites, but they became sold out whilst others weren't. (I think they assumed they would take deliveries of the ANA models, but they never arrived) So they had to tell customers who ordered the ANA models that they were sold out…

Even on ebay - HK sellers were selling the ANA models at $USD15-20 more than the other new Aero500 releases…. Strange.
The fact that the ANA models sold out first doesn't indicate no models arrived in Europe. The ANA models simply were extremely popular and there are only limited quantities available for each retailers.
Also ebay HK retailers are not dumb. They know Hogan sells their ANA models at high prices, they do the same.

Re: Aero500 breaking news

Eurojet, how models are produced for each type by Aero500?

Yes but strangely, some EU retailers didn't bother to even list the ANA models on their website, whilst displaying the rest of the releases from this batch...

I was told by the lady of Westmaintoys that she's not getting Aero500 models any more as the manufacturer wanted to focus more on the Chinese market, & that's the reason she wasn't selling the previous Singapore Airlines/Aeroflot B777-300 & Aeromexico/Northwest/Thai DC-10.

And why this? Is not a nonsense? In the Far East, China and Hong Kong in particular, there should be a high demand of Chinese/Far East airlines models.

I actually think the demand for aircraft models in Hong Kong is even higher than that in China, as Hong Kong has been known for years as the "hub" for aircraft models around Asia or even other parts of the world.
Back to Aero500, I'm not sure what causes the end of relationship with Westmaintoys, that's just what I heard. In fact, Toymax is still having a handful of those recent releases from Aero500, but not as many as in the past & I'm not sure if they still get them directly from the manufacturer. Just passed by the shop today & there's no ANA 777-300ER as well.

Re: Aero500 breaking news

As you may have noticed, the May Aeroclassics are (very) late this month. Some models have not made it in time for May, but the 1/500-releases are fortunately not concerned. They'll be announced by the end of this week as I heard.

Better be in the normal livery.. If it was in the normal-Updated livery (without Chinese characters) I'd buy it straight away.

Same here...

But Aero500 have chosen a reg. which hasn't been updated in the new livery yet... Why they do this I don't know...

My guess is that the old livery (with the Chinese titles) has never been realised in 1/500.

Herpa, and later Hogan, supplied the "ribbon scheme" for exclusive sales. Hogan made the new colors, Star Alliance and Hello Kitty jets. JC wings did the Star alliance colors as well.

Re: Aero500 breaking news

Does Aero500 have a B777-200 mould with RR and PW engines?
I would love to see Euro Atlantic CS-TFM... and maybe a Omni Air Intl 777!

EDIT: Just remembered they released an MH 777 with RR engines... nice to know.
