Default A318 ?

Why there are no manufacturers who produce the A318 in diecast ?
seeing people bidding up to 80€ on eBay on a Hogan AF A318 makes me sad

Hogan A318 is available in Airbus colors. but It took me 4 years to find this A318 in AF colors, and wasn't cheap then.
Really would have liked a Tarom.

I have the AF one. I bought it several years ago, but it has become soon very hard to find. Me too I don't understand what is the problem to re-release it by Hogan.

How many airlines actually flew the A318? My guess is that the livery choice would be limited, and with the Hogan model already released, may not sell well enough to justify a new diecast mold.

Would a re-release of the Hogan model in different liveries be good enough (probably the most likely) or do you guys really want a diecast model?

I would love to see a 318 in Frontier's livery. I think they have (had?) about six different animals on these Baby Buses.

I think the British A318 would be a popular model.

I think that only chance is Hogan. Moreover Hogan/Socatec AF A318 is a very good realization with great details. For those of us not affected by metal syndrome, is the best hope.

I have the original A318 by Herpa 400 in the Air France livery. The tail is completely different on the A318. Also have it in 200 scale by Hogan.

I personally think it's just a matter of time before Gemini 200 finally produces the A318 as well...

They produced all the baby Airbuses so far, so all they still have to make is this last A318 & the whole family is complete...
