About World Food Programme IL-76T RA-76780 (1:200)
AviaBoss started to run the business in 2015. The first product was the model of the Soviet passenger airplane Antonov An-10A on a scale of 1:200. This is plastic completely assembled, painted, ready to use model. The Model was available in two liveries of 1960th. The next models had become Antonov An-178, Ilyushin IL-76 cargo planes and the modern Russian regional jet Sukhoi Superjet-100. Then in 2017 AviaBoss upgraded their production line to metal die-cast models. The first was the famous Tupolev Tu-154M released in April 2017. The newest project are the models of Antonov An-26 and An-32 turboprop freighters.
About this scale
1/200 scale airliners are a relatively new scale on the collector airliner market. InFlight Models and Herpa Wings were the first to make models in this scale starting in the early mid 1990s. The big difference back then was the InFlight was making solid die-cast metal airliner models and Herpa Wings were solid plastic. Not surprisingly InFlight's die cast metal models were more popular then the solid plastic models, especially since the pricing was similar. In the late 2000s other manufacturers saw the increasing populating of InFlight models and jumped into the 1:200 scale diecast airliner model market. The introduction the Geminijets 200 line and also has meant a greatly increase selection for this scale. Other die-cast metal airliners have also come to market from these other great collectible lines: AeroClassics, ALB Models, Aviation 200, Blue Box, Dragon Wings, Hobby Master, J Fox Models, JC Wings, Jet X, NG Models, Phoenix Models, Retro Models, Seattle Models, and Western Models. Herpa has gradually been shifting there new models to diecast metal instead of plastic, but three great lines of 1:200 scale plastic snap together models have filled in the space of the larger models but at a lower price point. The solid plastic models from Hogan Wings, Skymarks, and Flight Miniatures are great models at great prices. And now there are even some manufacturers filling in the 1:200 scale models with military aircraft which can round out an airport diorama with both commercial and military aircraft. 1/200 military aircraft models are available from Air Force 1 models, Amercom Aircraft, Atlas Editions, Gulliver Models, Model Power and TSM Wings.
