Explorative thread: would these models sell well and...what airlines/liveries?

Hi.
I can't write why i am posting a thread about these specific moulds but it is a significative request by a member and i agree with it.
It is an explorative thread to understand if these models could sell well and, if yes, which airlines/liveries you would like.

Do you think these models would sell well -> or -> would you buy these models for your collection/fleets:
B737-400
E145
Yak-42
B727-100
Bae ATP
If the answer is YES, may you please post the airlines/liveries you would buy/prefer for each mould.
Thanks for participating.

Would love to have an E145 in both Loganair and BMI Regional. A 737 400 in Ariana Afgan, BA and BMI would be lovely personally.
A Bae ATP in WestAir Sweden or West Atlantic would be awesome as they are regularly seen around Aberdeen.
A bit of a sucker for E145's in particular.

Re: Explorative thread: would these models sell well and...what airlines/liveries?

The 727-100 was a very important airplane for its time, and completely under-represented in the 1:500 scale. The following liveries might prove to be popular enough to justify release:
B727-100: Avensa, Mexicana de Aviacion GOLD COLORS, TWA, American Airlines (FINAL COLORS), Avianca (RED//1980's colors), United (Saul Bass), Delta WIDGET, AeroPeru, TAME, Aviateca, National Sun King, and of course DOMINICANA DE AVIACION.
Doing these historical 727-100s would give Herpa a good opportunity to catch up on these wonderful airliners of of the Americas.


Northwest and Pan Am thankfully already exist.


This is a good thread!
Pete

Re: Explorative thread: would these models sell well and...what airlines/liveries?

Interesting Ale.
For me, everything apart from the E Jet would be of interest.

ATP dont see any big chances, since it would be a new form and it was commercially not really successful and barely 20 operators flew it in limited numbers, a few dubious amongst them.
But if it comes, I would love to see BA Landor and all following BA liveries, Manx Airlines, British Midland and Loganair.

YAK 42 - any would do. Aeroflot of course being No.1, but also Lithuanian Airlines, Macedonian Airlines, Donbassaero etc would be nice. Any would do, since it is a completely new mould.

Boeing 737-400 - BA Landor and follower, Dan Air, Luxair, Aer Lingus, British Midland

Boeing 727-100 - nice as well, would also be nice to see a few models here. But I for one would rather prefer the 727-200, since this would open a hugely bigger field of operators and possibilities.

For me

B737-400: British Airways (landor), Cargo Air/DHL or Fedex, Aer Lingus.
B727-100: Avensa, Fedex

But also I think other long forgotten types of 737 Classic (300 and 500 additional to the 400) could be appreciated.
