Turbo-prop version of Airbus Beluga
 
The turbo-prop version of the Airbus Beluga is operated by NASA. Does anyone know if one of these planes are sold as a model?

Oh, are yu tlking about the "Supper Guppy"....a B377 Stratocruiser modified to handle oversized aircraft & rocket sections? I think that 5 STAR or maybe MAGIC produced it in 1/400 & 1/500. There is a HERPA version in 1/200 also.

I can't get a photo of it because I'm on a Kindle. I'll try to get a photo of it though. It's really ugly.

Two models available in 1/400, though not NASA versions.
Find below the links to pics and more model info.

The first one - Aeromaritime - is part of my collection. A really nice model. And since this aircraft is a true classic in civil aviation, I think it is a must have. Not an easy hunt though...

It will be really cool when NASA starts flying the turbo-prop version on the Airbus A380.

Is this Airbus being built in Toulouse or Hamburg?

Re: Turbo-prop version of Airbus Beluga
 
It took me awhile, but it is made by SKY400 (not is NASA colors though) and, yes I do happen to have a pic (not a very good one) from my collection. I was very impressed with the accuracy and the detail of this little bugger;

Ah. That is easy. Look at the outhouse in the picture, it is a traditional German Jägerbög. Must be Hamburg.

Time to straighten these newbies out. Your turbo-prop version of the Airbus Beluga is actually a Boeing aircraft. A modified Boeing C-97 Straofreighter.

I like those models. I'll have to look at buying some!
