Default Bring Back the 3 TEN: Future A310s

With all this talk of new moulds and the NG 757 it is easy to forget about the excellent Aeroclassics A310. There's still plenty to be made on this mould that would I think sell well. Here's my top selection:

I’d love to see PanAm and Delta A310’s with the correct Pratt & Whitney engines. The AC releases all had the rather enormous error of having the General Electric CF6’s.

Still plenty of Gemini CSA A310s around at cheap prices, which appear to struggle to sell. The only one I would want would be SABENA.

The A310 has never been one of my favorite aircraft. I buy a few to represent the type, but that's just me. There's probably a market for more. I would say, if AC does more of them, prioritize smaller national carriers where the A310 may have been one of the carrier's larger aircraft, which adds historical importance. Cyprus, Air Maldives, Air Djibouti, etc.

I would like to see Aeroclassics create a seamless A300 mould or at least put their existing A300 mould to use.
