Default An Airbus A 310 with the House colours livery

Very tempting but I will wait pictures of the final product to make a decision.

The gap between the overwing emergency exit and the upper surface of the wing will be the key element for the decision.

I attach a picture showing the real aircraft, check this detail.

The aircraft had GE engines and became F-GEMF with AF.

That’s a VERY nice release. Hope Inflight will accelerate its release schedule rather than adding announcements frequently. There will be several A310s of recent months being released at the same time, I assume. Production slots at the factories seem to be faster and/or cheaper when the same mould (i.e. type of aircraft) is used for multiple releases (i.e. different airline liveries) at the same time…

I am too interested in the fate of their Fokker 28s…

No still no F28 unfortunately, was looking forward to that.

I concur that this is a very tempting release. An A320 in the same colour tail would also be very exciting

I would be optimistic about the window line position, as the later a310s had a better one (not yet perfect, but much better than in the beginning - Wardair for example).

I simply hope that Aviation Megastore or Aviation Center Berlin will publish pictures showing the details I need to make the right decision.

As far as I have noticed, even later production batches of the very same model, for example of the Lufthansa A310, had the improved lower cabin windows.

I am very excited about this one, hope they make some running changes to the mold to address earlier feedback....
