Default Emirates A380-800 Expo 2020

World Expo 2020 was scheduled to be held in Dubai UAE starting Oct 20, in 2020. Rescheduled to open 01 October 2021.
Gemini Jets released three A380's, and 3 777-300ers in these themes.

Here is one of them

Nice addition Steve

I flew on the 'Orange Expo' A380 from LHR-DXB in 2019 so naturally this one had to join my hangar. I've seen both of the other two (green & blue) & have been tempted to add them but I have 18 1:200 diecast A380's so I'm outta space

I am hearing you. collecting all three in the set is tempting, but space is filled quickly with A380's that's for sure. What is your limit of A380's per glass shelf?
Three or four?

The exhibition hall looks like a lampshade my mother had in the 1970's !

I wonder if Emirates will paint these EXPO 2020 A380 back in its original color and remove the stickers.. So far they're in service like that.

By the way, great model. I'm thinking aboutto get the 777.

Thank you. I thought about getting the green "Sustainability" 777-300ER at one point. I decided on the A380 as the Expo decals covers a wider area and displays quiet well on the A380 rather than the 777-300ERs, however, that's just my opinion. Space always comes into decisions as well. Good luck with what ever one you get.

The expo was obviously delayed due to Covid but is now scheduled to run from October this year until March 2022 so I expect the schemes will stay a while longer (but maybe they should change the date from 2020 to 2021 )

BTW the site where the Expo is being held is pretty darn impressive and you can see where the inspiration for the artwork come from
