Smile Tap a340-312

Honestly the highlight of this pandemic for me, had been hunting for this beauty for a while and happy that I finally found it. Started collecting about 3 years ago and this was one of my top goals to acquire ever since I got my first model the TAP A330-200.



Cheers everyone and I hope we can all pull through this.

Suhweet!

I don't understand why TP models are so limited in production.... they always sell out and the prices on the eBay for the rare ones that come up always go sky high. Pacmin had a TP A320 the other day that went for over USD$600.

Be nice if we can get this and the original livery from Inflight and while we're at it, the A330's too. Kthnxbye.

Congrats, two beautiful birds that you have there.
It's a great feeling when you've been looking for a desired model for a while and you finally see one available isn't it?

I agree, it seems they are neglected for some reason, It does look though like it is getting better however, but not enough sadly. It be nice to see retro tap come but I see NEOs being more likely to come out in the future. Nonetheless fingers crossed for any TAP release at this point, good to see GJ making the A310.

Nice acquisition! TAP has a good looking livery. Certainly one of the better -white oriented - ones imo.

I agree, I am scared they may go the even simpler route in the future as their livery ages. Let’s hope not 😞

I stumbled across it a couple months ago and got it, honestly love that good the livery translated on a turboprop. However, since I started not too long ago, finding the rest of the narrowbodies is a pretty big challenge. Have to have the hopes up. 😅
