Cool Re: InFlight200 Airbus A310-300 "Aeroflot"

Looking at the Wardair one, I have to say Inflight captured the 'unique' nature of the livery very well. The general look of the mould is very commendable as well—finally.

So, will I add this to my collection?

I have nothing else to add this too. But I do have a story from 1989 where I flew on this very aircraft 'Grant McConachie'. So I really owe it to myself to snag this one. It was a 'perfect flight' situation, flying out to western Canada on business, April 11, on a 9:00am flight, then back the same day. In bed by midnight. Sweet. And the aircraft was near-empty and a choice of meals served on china. Regular class ticket. I also snagged a postcard of the aircraft at the Edmonton airport before boarding on my return flight to Toronto. I ran into the postcard last night in my 1989 daytime I saved from my ad agency days. My boss' note wishing me luck was there too. Perfect.

The fight deck windscreen is a wee-bit distorted, but not enough to put me off, and certainly 'close' enough. The Hobby Master version was nowhere near close. Not concerned that the engines are a tad too low. Overall, Inflight seems to have done a reasonably decent interpretation of this.

Did somebody here say they've already done an Air Transat version of this, or was that someone other than Inflight?

Anyhow, this Wardair one is looking pretty decent. Now to find one available in North America.

Nice story and great memories, for sure.
Inflight released the Air Transat version, but they really botched it up badly...

Hmmm. Yeahhhh. That does look like a 'pass' to me (plus it is long gone anyhow). IF sure is hit'n'miss on the A310. Wow.

Thanx for the heads-up, all the same. Most appreciated.

Looking at the price . . . whoa . . . serious thought required now. Ouch!
