Default Airbus Beluga opened door sneak peek?

I am not the owner of this model. But saw this today on facebook and wanted to share here. No information about scale, material nor manufacturer. Looks like a nice prototype though. Anybody has gotten any information about it?

Gear reminds me of JC Wings... material looks plastic the way the inside is lit up.

Plane skidded off the runway during test. Being a cargo bird it's safe to say that no other planes were injured or damaged.

I'm assuming 1:200 JC Wings future release. The engines are too detailed for 1:400.

Might also be Hogan Wings.. slim chance IMO, but could be. Promotional item for Airbus?

I wonder if we’ll one day see fuselages to use as internal cargo for these.

You might be right. Hope is a 1:200.

That'd be cool and will go nicely with a nice cargo GSE that can be used for the dreamlifter as well.

Nice. Also think it is JC give the wings and gear. Would be too heavy if it was full metal. Hope that the dreamlifter has an open cargo space aswell.maybe nice to fit a hogan fuselage inside

The Rolls Royce 700 engines look like the JC mould style too.

Is Airbus even marketing those Belugas to anyone else ?
An immediate target may be Boeing, but it will certainly take more than a couple of freebie diecast models to push the deal through I imagine

it looks like the jc mold so scale 1:200 might be metal and plastic on top

Very nice model, it was tempting to try something but I am not a fan of moving parts at this scale ...

Nice model this looks like a 1/200 kit, should be nice once finished.

It is easy to do an open door Beluga starting with a DW , I did that a few years ago, was fun.

The loader is scrap built, a bit crap I admit but did the job at the time

Loader is ok, it's the payload that stands out - looks like the packs of bacon we had from good old fashioned butchers (and bacon in my books, is GOOD )
