Default CAT CV880 by Inflight200...Pics!

...from all the models so far, and I like them all, this CAT really has to be my favorite ! I dont even know why...maybe the ivory tone for the fuselage instead of common white...maybe the Dragon, maybe the black nose that enhances it showing how Inflight did a superb job in capturing this particular area on the CV880, together with the cockpit windows...anyway, here she is,
" The Mandarin Jet " !
Enjoy !!!!!!!!!

Hi Rui,

This is absolutely beautiful - both the model AND the box art!!
I am so glad I pre-ordered this one, and the Swissair Coronado HB-ICE - my first Convair jets. I will wrap these up as Christmas presents from myself!!

It is nice that on the box there is a little history about the airline and aircraft used. That would be interesting on all releases - not just the Convair ones.

Thank you so much Rui for the excellent pics, and thank you the Inflight 200 factory for making this classy gem!!

Mark.

I bet you wouldn't say no to a large BEA Vanguard though!........I don't have a BEA example, but do have a large metal Vickers House colours.

Back to 990's. I want the SAS, that's for sure. And maybe SPANTAX. And I thought the 1st 990 was to be the AA version ?
