Default United A320 Battleship

Hello,

Looking for a United A320 in the "Battleship" livery. Could be either N431UA or N438UA. Can provide US or European shipping address.

Cheers,
Tshuhash

Guessing that was you that won the one on ebay, earlier today?? I was watching it to see what price it would fetch, out of curiosity. Got a bit more than I thought it would, but maybe that was because it had the DW A319 too.

Hi,

Yeah, it was me. To be honest, I only needed the A320. Wanted to make an offer to the seller, but by the time he replied to my message, there was already a bid on the bundle, so I guess there must have been somebody else going for it. I will try to sell the A319, but since the whole package is gonna come to Dubai, I have to figure out a really low price for it, so it wouldn’t be high with the shipping cost either.
Just managed to get a 737-300 with the same livery, so got what I needed from United. There are other rare ones I’ve been looking for a while, and one has just popped up on eBay a few days ago. Last month I missed out on two, so need to focus in this one.

I remember when Waffle was walking around the LAX show and handing out this model out for free to people he knew. The UAL A320 in Battleship scheme wasn’t a hot seller.

And yet it is still hard to find any of them. Anyway, I'm gonna keep looking for the other one as well.

Everybody was clamoring for this model and he ordered 500 to be made, if memory serves me correctly. And the model didn’t sell well. I can’t remember if Aeroclassics released a Battleship livery A320.
