Default BA 2012 Games Dove & Firefly A319's

I do not really collect 1/400 scale models, but have been looking for this pair for awhile, as it seems they haven't made them in the 1/200 scale ??? or if they will be made in the future, so I finally Managed to pick this set of Phoenix ones of Ebay, I have a BA fleet so these were needed.

I remember when those came out. Lovely models. I never bought them myself. There are so many good Olympic schemes out there, it's a slippery slope so I tend to stay away from those. I do remember these games as some of my favorite (I loved the tennis, Sir Andy Murray won gold if I recall, epic), so these models do elicit happiness for me. This pair really are nice looking, especially the "dove" scheme. Great detail! Thanks for posting.

I got these as well, the Dove stuck around for several years after the games, generally ending up with standard BA blue nacelles, prompting me to refer to them as the 'blue collared dove', lol. The Firefly was repainted quickly owing to contractual issues around how long they could use the Olympic logos on the aircraft. I also have a BA Olympic 732. It would be nice if NG gave us a BA Olympic 757.

Great liveries and models. We definitely need these in 1:200 too.
