Default Virgin Atlantic sisters

Received the VS birthday girl few weeks ago and just put that next to my other Virgin together today. Interesting I just realise the title is slightly different. I was planning to get rid of the older one, but maybe I am going to keep it for now....
Just can't keep up with all the different titles/livery Virgin Atlantic has.

I have G-VROM...a lovely big, heavy model indeed! I was a bit disappointed at the lack of detail on the cargo door though...

Maybe you should mention that you'd be willing to sell?

For the G-VROM But then, as you pointed out, Abraham has the same plane for sale on here on DA C. So with THAT and this thread I have decided to keep BOTH innocent little Virgins here for myself!

I believe G-VROM and the 2 KLM B744's by Inflight 200,are the most often requested,and toughest to find models in the B747 range. IMO.

I believe the market could take two being for sale at the same time. It's a rather sought-after model so selling it should not be too hard. But in your place I'd keep it too. :-)

Crap! I mean YEA! Now I must hunt this one down. Cannot ever have too many Virgins you know.

Nurunet: You actually did me a great favor by posting about the other one for sale as it helped me to confirm my commitment to keeping Barbarella here with Penelope and they're mutual friend Miss Sunshine
