New releases: Cathay Pacific 75th Anniversary Box Set

I've just read on the Asia Miles website that there's a 75th Anniversary box set coming up and will be open for pre-order by members very soon. The box set will include 7 1:500 Cathay Pacific models, which include DC-3, DC-6, L-1011, B747-400, B777-300, A350-1000 and A321neo. There's no further information of the manufacturer but I guess it's from Hogan. I'm just also attaching an image I captured from the website, but the resolution is low so can't really see the details like registrations etc. The price for the box set is HKD 3,200 (~EUR 350).

Good to see Cathay Pacific keeping alive with such a box set which was never seen before. Some interesting new models like DC-3, DC-6 and A321neo, while others are most likely just re-releases. Would be keen to see if these will be available as single releases later on.

Re: New releases: Cathay Pacific 75th Anniversary Box Set

The "problem" for those collectors already having all the models of the set is to pay abour 350 euro for just the A321neo...
I hope this small airplane will be sold separately.

Interesting set but very expensive for the average collector.

Agree. Would be interesting to know what the registrations are. The L1011 previous release had a slightly different livery (Swire logo) from when the type retired. It would be interesting if this release has a slightly different one. They could have been a bit more creative by perhaps including the old KA (e.g., KA L1011 in old livery) and some CX Cargo (e.g., 748) planes.

This item is currently not available for delivery to the USA. I wonder if they are testing the market by just starting local?

The box set also comes with a concert ticket for a group of popular singers in Hong Kong, so that maybe the reason why it's only available for delivery to Hong Kong at this stage. But guess it maybe available for overseas purchases at a later stage, since they're also delivering other regular model items to other places (at least I can see they deliver to UK).
I also don't quite understand why the B747-8F are never realised in 1/500 scale - they could have done both the old and new regular liveries as well as the wonderful Hong Kong Traders livery! Hope these will appear in the near future.

Re: New releases: Cathay Pacific 75th Anniversary Box Set

This item is sold out. It was still displayed on their web page a week or two ago, with "sold out" as the status. Now it is not listed anymore.

I am curious whether it was the set itself or the concert ticket which was more popular.
At any rate, their other offerings on the web site as far as aircraft models are concerned are quite few.
