Default Holy LAB!

Super limited release goes crazy on eBay. These are just beginning to be received by collectors from Aeroclassics retailers. Amazing price.

Why were these super limited, but the ecuatoriana wasn't? Interesting logic...
Would've loved to have gotten one of these....

And it's not even accurate. The "A" is supposed to be and inverted "V". Lloyd Aereo Boliviano sells better in 1:400 than 1:200 apparently. This livery was VASP's idea after they took over the bolivian airline. Not my favorite though. I think the first LAB 727 release was better.

FFS can the AC factory get even the most obvious details correct? I hadn't noticed but now looking at the photos it is super obvious

Yup. Screwed up a little but could be fixable with some patience and ability to paint. Airbrush might do or just a good thin paint brush.

...Yup, almost as good an investment as an IRV (inverted V)!

I know what most likely happened...AK in an attempt to please collectors from past errors, had a quality control conference call with the factory. Sometime during the call he probably said something like, make sure you dot you I's and cross your T's and they misinterpreted it as cross your inverted V's!

Not to mention the misspelled website on the VASPEX 727 fuselage

The letter A that should have been used in LAB is used on the Ecuatoriana release...
