Default Found a model I forgot I had.

Rainy day, so I was doing some reorganization of empty boxes. One of them wasn't empty! An old Sky Classics British Caledonian A310 that I forgot I had. Picked it up on one of my trips through ARD a few years ago. You simply cannot leave there empty handed.

I don't remember the discoloration on the yellow stripe by the nose. Not sure if it was always there, or just accentuated by the lighting. Anyhow - here it is:

Nice model.


Question is who is going to be interested in these models when us old farts have "shuffled off our mortal coil?"

For the last few years I have been casually looking for an Inflight Pan American cargo 707 and last week, while doing some display case rearranging, I discovered I already had one!
Definitely a senior moment...

Aircal, your post says it all! You forgot the word "take"

My wife said she was going to have all my planes melted down and an urn made or will line my coffin.
