Too bad Inflight200 didn't produce a nice 1/200 scale shuttle fleet. They produce some top quality desktop commercial airline models. I have three, two Boeing 777-300ER and one 787-8 Dreamliner and they are phenomenal!

Being an Ohioan and living 12 miles away from where Judith Resnik grew up, it would be great to have shuttle Challenger in my collection and to of made an diorama of what it would've looked like displayed in the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

That's an awesome model, I tried looking for it at the places that I get my models from; eztoys, Troy's Toys or Airline Museum and none of them have it. Looks like eBay is where I'll have to look for it.

I'm not sure it's sold out as yet because when a model is sold out the number of units produced is indicated on Inflight's web site. See: here.

But the production must have been extremely low (for some reason I have the number 97 in my head) and on the back of the NASA model box it's the American Airlines B747-100 serial N743PA which is depicted.

I've bought the InFlight200 SOFIA model (without the telescope window) and it's rather lovely — certainly more deserving of its price tag than other die-cast models I've purchased.

The Orbital ATK Stargazer model is also on my radar!

Would also be nice if either Inflight or JC Wings produced a 1/200 scale model of a shuttle carrier 747.

Has anyone else pre-ordered a 1:200 Stargazer? I must have bought mine almost twelve months ago now and have yet to receive it. Last I heard was around Christmas, and it was still in production then.

Also, has there a 1:200 NASA DC-8 ever been produced? I'd have thought that would have been a popular one.
