Default Air france a 350 ?

During Summer Air France will receive its first A 350.

Any chance to have a model of it ?

Jean Pierre.

If there is a mould for it, then I would expect it is more than likely. The A350 is a hot commodity right now, isn't it?

I am sure that the AF A350 will be made in 1:200. Gemini, Inflight or Herpa have the A350 mold so only a matter of time. I saw a picture on the net with the tail allready painted in AF colors. Is the AF registration allready announced ?

Have not seen the AF A350's reg yet (on Twitter/FB).

Planespotters.net also doesn't have it yet:

Thank you all for your answers and this very nice picture.

The problem is not having a mould, the problem is commissioning the model.
The team at the AF Museum is well known for having no interest in model aircraft, the models that were so far released were produced in a very limited numbers and the knowledge of the guys who are validating them is questionable.

They have declared a war against unlicensed products but they take no initiative to contact
manufacturers to have models produced.
We all know that life just like nature, abhors a vacuum.
So it quite normal that manufacturers working without licence take the lead.

I have to renew my AF Museum membership for 2019.
Not sure I will do that, in that case I will tell them why.

Jean Pierre.

I never fully understood the whole licensing stuff. With lufthansa for instance, many models are licensed ( herpa, gemini) but many are not ( jfox and b models, both inflight mold). What's the big difference? Have models of both 'sides' but see no difference between them except the licencing badge on the boxes. The Air France B789 from gemini and inflight came out not so long ago so why shouldn't they be allowed to bring out the A359?

Simply the lack of interest ...

In that case the door is open for more models produced without licence ...
... and I am not going to complain about this.

If there is a market, the models will sell.

A few years ago, the AF Museum requested my help to have information about manufacturers working without licence, I declined to do that.

Instead, I tried to explain that the AF Museum was partially responsible for the situation.

No difference I wouldn't have thought. Rather a question of breaking the law (breaching copyright) and if the airliner wants to sue the diecast manufacturer for not paying for a licence.

Only thing that isn't clear is if - Gemini, Inflight wants to release an Air France model. Then isn't it a case of the manufacturer approaching Air France and asking to buy a licence... or are we saying Air France are refusing to grant the manufacturer a licence?

Bless you for that act of kindness.

Agreed. But if any of these companies are based in China, then good luck in pursuing any kind of copyright infringement. This is one instance where I am perfectly fine with China's lack of adhering to/enforcing of copyright laws.
