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 ….

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!

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

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!

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.

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! !
