Lupa Airbus A300 "Beluga"...Pics!
...with an opening "forehead" too !:^^:
Hard/heavy plastic body, comes with a metal tripod stand.
A must for any Airbus diehard fan, this was a gift from a friend ;)










and the usual "air-to-air" shot...flying A350 parts maybe to the final assembly line!?:^^:

Thank you Rui.

If we except the front cargo door, the Lupa model looks very close to Skymarks.

It is a pity that this aircraft did not attract any attention from our great manufacturers, something very nice and unusual could have been made.

Not too late, but if I remember well these planes have flown for now twenty years.
It's time to give a companion to the excellent Herpa Guppy.

Instead of flooding the market with B 747s, B 777s, B787s ….

Re: Lupa Airbus A300 "Beluga"...Pics!
Well, JP, those models you've mentioned are the ones people want!
Cant blame the manufacturers for flooding the market with them, so thats why I go for any other brand representing an unique model that I still dont have.
Like the Hogan B747-8, its plastic, but fingers crossed they make it in metal. If not, then the plastic version will do.
I had seen these before, at the time I missed the original Airbus House Colours Beluga, so this was a nice surprise! The opening cargo door although " toyish" is a nice feature.
And the metal tripod gives it a more serious " collector" look!;)

Nice model, will be looking forward to what the new proposed A330 'Beluga' is going to look like!

Re: Lupa Airbus A300 "Beluga"...Pics!
A nice model Rui. I'm not keen on the real thing, but plastic or metal, personally I don't give a rats ***e, its a worthy addition to any 1/200 Airbus collection :)

Re: Lupa Airbus A300 "Beluga"...Pics!

Very cool model indeed! Maybe we will get this in diecast at some point.

I love the way the cargo door opens. Looks very much like a Risesoon model.

Thank you for sharing!

Rui, maybe you can put a small Airbus section inside?;)

Nice model Rui, and great picture.

I've always liked the Beluga. Even though the hinge and catch on the cargo door isn't strictly scale, the opening cargo door is a nice touch.

I wish someone would make this model in plastic or metal with landing gear. I have the Risesoon model and it will do nicely until a diecast model comes out.

Re: Lupa Airbus A300 "Beluga"...Pics!
Not the best model around but is a nice addition. I have 2 plastic Belugas with the early and latest Airbus colour but they are in my office. Thanks for posting. The cargo door is a nice touch! !
