Yeah, that was my first impression at least. My pics aren't great here but the bubbling on the wings is pretty ugly. Probably just a matter of time now before the cracking and crumbling begins.

Here is another picture comparing this model: TAP A319 from 2007 (PH4TAP237) to another Phoenix model Tiger Airways A319 (PH4TIG534)..presumably the same mould.

A real shame. I still remember the excitement of finding this model and it showing up in the mail. It was hard to come by.
