InFlight 200 is a professional range of 1:200 scale model
aircraft manufactured for the World's Airlines and model collectors alike.
Pioneering engineers for Inflight200 were able to manufacture a superb quality of model aircraft never
seen before in the scale of 1:200. The range has high technical tampo printing, rolling undercarriage with
rubber tyres, spinning fan blades in the engines, antennas and with the larger aircraft types a swivelling
nose wheel, leaving nothing to the imagination. With feedback and praise coming from airlines and collectors
around the world Inflight200 continues to strive to set new standards including additions of flaps up or flaps
down choices in wing configuration.
Inflight200 has a wide range of civil and military aircraft types manufactured over the years including
"retro" models of the 1960's, 70's and 80's. The largest aircraft manufactured to date has been the NASA
Boeing 747 with space shuttle on the back, down to the smallest being the Lockheed C-140 Jetstar. New mould
types are planned so keep a close eye on this website for more news.

2007 was an historic year for Boeing with the 40th Anniversary of the first flight of the ever popular
737-200 which first took to the skies back in 1967 on August 8th. To commemorate this we have produced a
limited edition model to represent the first flight of this historic airliner.
Inflight200 are pleased to be able to offer model types of airliners and military transports from the 1960's to the current day.
We celebrated in 2007 also the 40th anniversary of the Douglas DC-8-63 which first flew on April 10th
1967 and was delivered to KLM Royal Dutch Airlines on July 15th of the same year. The aircraft was then
put into commercial service on July 27th 1967. With the development of the series 63 aircraft which was
the fuselage of the DC-8-61 and the wings of the DC-8-62, we at Inflight thought it would be good to
develop this model from our very much appreciated DC-8-62. We were pleased to be able to introduce the
DC-8-63 into the collection in 2008, with Iberia being the first and CP Air coming later
We at Inflight 200 want to be able to capture the history of aviation with models of high quality
We hope you enjoy our efforts in bringing accurate models to your collection.
We at InFlight 200 would like to show the amount of precision
work involved and the various stages of manufacturing process, from concept to finished product. Below,
is only a small sample of the intense work that goes into the production of our models.
Stage 1: Deciding the subject of the next mould.
Using the 747 as an example, the first thing to establish is how many liveries can be applied to the
aircraft, bearing in mind that the mould cost for this aircraft is in excess of US $80,000! Of course, the
747 will be a very popular subject, hence the next step is to approach Boeing for the license to manufacture
their aircraft. Once licensing is agreed, and royalties are negotiated, we can move on to stage
Stage 2: Deciding the colour scheme for the next release.
This stage of production takes place at least six months before scheduled release date. The choice of
scheme depends on a number of factors, such as airline license, saleability and collectability. If an
airline approaches us for a product, we do our best to ensure that limited numbers become available for the
collector, for example with the Qantas releases. Once an airline has been decided, any airline licenses are
obtained and royalties negotiated, we can then move on to stage 3...
Stage 3: Artwork.
Communication with the factory in China opens with us sending information and reference pictures for the
chosen subject. With regular visits to the factory, we are able to check up on progress, and make
corrections and alterations where necessary; if needed, we can consult the airlines for their requirements.
Artwork (see below) can take up to two/three months to achieve the required standard, with various emails
and telephone calls back and forth to the factory before stage 4...
The artwork for this particular aircraft was put on various forums for the collector to
scrutinize, and to pass comments on anything that needed amending.
Stage 4: Manufacturing process.
Once the artwork has been approved and signed off, the model can then go into production. Contrary to
belief, these models are hand made. Each model passes through approximately 30-40 pairs of hands before the
finished aircraft is boxed for dispatch.
- The cast of the aircraft is produced and cleaned up by hand.
- The wing and fuselage sections are then prepared for printing.
The prepared sections are then tampo printed for the correct colour scheme.
- This process can take several repetitions, depending on the complexity of the final colour
- The printed parts are then assembled and quality control looks for any defects on the parts.
- The final stage in the factory is for the product to go through a final quality control check, then it
is boxed in preparation for dispatch.
Stage 5: Distribution.
All orders are fulfilled from the distribution centre in Hong Kong and shipped out all around the
the relevant distributors, who in turn distribute to their authorized retailers.
Stage 6: Retail.
We would like to thank the retailers for their support of our product and collectors worldwide
purchasing our product.
