Yeh, I suppose I didn't consider that. Originally I was looking at a Dash-8-300 of South African Airways, and although there are other suitable bases I thought this would have been the better version because there would be less to remove.
Since that time I have bough an Airbus A319CJ (Herpa), which I may eventually seek out for someone to change to a British Airways version. In this case Herpa have not produced an IAE powered A319 other than this CJ and the BA version in the box set. I now have the box set anyway so am not in such a rush to convert the A319CJ, but I may still want it done because eventually I aim to build a diarama and will need more than 1 BA A319. I feel less concerned about changing the A319 than I would have about the Dash-8 because it is almost a pointless model
