Default 1/100 MEA A320 - 5000th A320 Family Unit Delivered

First - My thanks go to Kitty Hawk 1903 for hooking me up with the contact to get this model.
Just arrived today my long sought after 1/100 MEA A320 with MSN 5000 titles. This is my first 1/100 Rise Soon model and must say was pleasantly surprised with the overall quality! Model is solid resin - weight comparable to a Pcamin, and has a nice overall finish. Wings are plastic and are detachable but are well detailed and finished. The plaque on the base commemorating the delivery flight date and route of flight to MEA is a nice touch. Not documented as such but I believe this was a corporate model issued for MEA. It may have a couple minor imperfections but understandably this was a MUST for my MEA collection.
Be gentle guys, this is not a Pacmin, Space, Westway, or Grphideco. Its just a Rise Soon.

Fred, that's a little beauty! I really like that colour scheme. I have a 1/100 A320, which looks as though it is a Rise Soon model also. Its in the colours of an Afghan airline, Safi Airlines. Enjoy that model, its lovely.

I have the Risesoon 1/100 Saudia A320 and while it may not be Pacmin, Space, Westway or Graphideco, let me tell you its a pretty good contender for those models. The details and accuracy of the mold I cannot fault. Their 1/100 737-700/800 models are also not to be sniffed at. Just because they do not have a designer label stuck to them does not make them inferior in any way.

They have many interesting models to check out.

Hi Neil and thank you! I am glad you liked the model. Well it is an MEA, but aside from my being biased I am fond of the scheme as it is unique and has got character. This model opened my eyes to Rise Soon's product for future acquisitions. It is a great mould with a very clean/neat finish. As for the plane itself, I was delighted to get THAT particular one both for its significance to Airbus and to MEA. Attached is a video of the making or the real 1/1 A320 MSN 5000.

Thanks for the input Moin and agreed on all counts. Rise Soon is a force to be reckoned with among the big league model makers now! I was really impressed with this one.

Hello Fred

A very beautiful piece, with the detail of the base that gives it a very personal touch and value. A very interesting piece in any collection. Congratulations.
Here is a good example of an excellent quality/price ratio,especially in the A320-B737-700 and 737-800
A question-when we talk about Rise Soon, we are talking about Skymarks Supreme? It's the same thing?

risesoon also produce models for skymarks, but are usually a bit less detailed. however their skymarks supreme models are excellent. I used to have the supreme 1/100 klm 738. managed to find a couple of pics. mould is excellent AND they come with landing gear. most large scale models do not. cost is around £75.00 gbp.

I agree,I think the Skymarks Supreme line are done quite well. Not that expensive for 100 scale. I own 5 of them.

Aeromexico B737-800
Alaska B737-400 (1st Disney,Make A Wish,& Salmon)
Alaska B737-900 (2nd Disney)

I really like the Skymarks Supreme range. These are the ones I have so far:

Aeromexico MD80
Continental Retro 737-900
Alaska MD80
British Airways A320.

With my user name and avatar, not hard to guess which Supreme I wish I had acquired, yup, the Egyptair 737-8. Pinto, you're a lucky guy! Narrowly missed one on eBay a couple of weeks ago, but got the Alaska for €30 instead, so the search goes on

Pinto, thanks for the compliments and glad you liked the model. That one holds a special place in my collection - just look at my name and my avatar lol. My pride and joy remains my Skyland 1/50th MEA 707. But you're so right as these Rise Soon models combine quality with affordability.

I did believe a single factory produces the Skymarks and Rise Soon models. This is my first large Rise Soon but has a lot in common with the Skymarks Supreme range of models. Thanks to Robertjon for confirming that in his post.

Thanks again and all the best to you
Fred

I've had very little experience of their 1/200 models. I understand that some of their 1/100 products are branded as Skymarks Supreme models, which IMO are some of the best 1/100 airliner models out there.
