Yes, Gabe, an A319 today
I'm hoping to do the same when JC releases the TAP A319 and A321 ,
how amazing would it be if the plane flown is the
same as the 1:200 model!?

Nope. The answer was Aryelle though. She does NOT like getting her photo taken

Hey Rui, I suggest to delete that photo taken in the "office" at 39'000 feet.
It's an offense to take photos in the flightdeck during flight; a flight safety concern.

Nice...never seen the center console of the flight deck up close like this.

Have to say my first 3 arrivals for 2015 are the two IF200 A350...one flaps up and one flaps down. What came along with this was the JC 200 Qatar A350.

But then, technically, it was sent at the end of Dec but I received it early Jan. Still counts, right?

I don't see it as a safety concern, or even a job security concern. The flight deck environment is no longer 'sterile' at 39,000'. And while it may technically be against the rules to take such photos, airline employees tend to know which rules their employer enforces and which ones they don't. I happen to think it's an awesome photo!

Back to the OP, my first arrivals for 2015 haven't arrived yet!! But I'm expecting both polished L-1011's(EAL and EAL/AC hybrid), as well as the CX 773 and A350 Carbon Fiber "flaps down" version...and then there is a huge backlog of IF and JC releases I've pre-ordered that are a ways off!

Great photo Rui, and NOT a problem in this case.

After reading the regulations : HERE
https://www.federalregister.gov/arti...he-flight-deck

It can be argued that that particular rule only applies to flight deck crew members (pilots) at their duty stations.

"The FAA clarifies that the prohibition in the final rule only extends to crewmembers at a flightcrew member duty station; therefore, the prohibition does not apply to a person occupying the flight deck jumpseat."

Any 2015 purchases Ed?
Yes, I had the proper authorisation from the man in charge, the Captain.
Rules apply, and I follow them.
But if the photo is somehow offensive to some of you here, I'll just remove it.
Funny, I find it that making models of aircraft that crashed is offensive, but thats me.
Im cabin crew so maybe thats why.
Thank you guys.

Totally pathetic. Do you work for this said airline? You know the FAA rules? Its ok to have a laptop out on the table tray that comes out right in front of the pilot but a model airplane sitting right there for maybe a minute or two to take a pic is so bad in your eyes? Quit trying to play airplane police man and enforcing rules somewhere you don't even have access to or know anything about except for what you read on the internet from the use of google.

As to the OP, I love the idea you used. Maybe Ill start taking my models into work and posing them with all the airplanes I work on. Then maybe FlyingDream can tell me how its a safety hazard at my work. .

Got both the eastern and the Cathay L1011 as my first purchases of 2015. Really impressed with their weight. And the polished parts look so good. I'm happy that inflight (JFox) released the Cathay again since I missed out on the first release.

Some lovely birds there Rui...especially the shiny Eastern Tristar!

My first purchase of the new year was the twin of one of the last purchases of 2014...I did hum and hard about getting it but in the end I just went for it...the B.Cal DC-10 'James Watt'
which I bought from ARD earlier today!











And the two Scottish birds together: Robbie Burns and James Watt!








Also got this wonderful Asiana 747-400:

My first purchase and arrival of 2015 was the Gemini Delta 777-232.

Very nice model. I would highly recommend it despite the dark tail colors. Everything else about the model is very good.

I won't post pics because there have already been quite a few posted, and all I have is my cell phone camera for pics.

My first 2 purchases for 2015 were the 1/200 Phoenix LOT Polish and Norwegian Air Shuttle 787-8s. Very happy with both of them.
