Default Allegiant Air MD80

I didnt realize 2 different GJ Allegiant Air MD80s were released until I purchased the 2nd one this weekend at Aviation World. The first one I bought over a year ago is N891GA. But, the second one is N871GA with the tip of the wings painted red like when it operated for SAS. I like it better. It doesnt have the hump in the forward part of the fuselage where you could tell they modified the mould.

Are both boxes identical including the GJAAY550 stock #?

Could we have some pics? An Allegiant MD-80 is high on my want list, but the original release simply didn't have a good enough mold.

The box itself is identical to the other except the stock number is GJAAY550B. I will try to get some photos for you, David.
