Default Biman Fokker F-28

Would there be any interest in seeing Aeroclassics release a Biman Fokker F-28? Was kicking the idea around with Aeroclassics this past weekend. Feedback please. Picture from Wikipedia.

Not for me. I'd prefer an older livery Boeing 707 myself if I was going to get a 2nd Biman.

Plus this is an F28-4000, which AC doesn't have a mould for. The difference between a 1000 and a 4000 is quite obvious.

There are plenty of short F28s still to do - see my wishlist post:

I’m not well versed in the difference between the -1000 vs -4000, what are the differences ?

Not for me either. I think a lot of European collectors would buy an Iberia one though! I certainly would! Here you have the artwork already done!!!

Length is the main thing. I covered it in the mould review with images:
