Default Mahan Air A300

No, I know, not a Pacmin, Space or Graphideca, but this was so 'quirky' I just had to have it! Thanks to a heads up from a fellow DAC member, the model now resides with me

This is a metal model, very heavy, and in very good condition. I've no clue as to the manufacturer, so would appreciate any help figuring that out. There is a small decal on the belly, but it is in the Arabic script. All decals on the model, other than the logo on the fin, and the flight deck windows, are of the vinyl 'stick on' type, but are stuck fast, with no sign of peeling at all. My own theory on the model, is that the finishing and paintwork may well have been done in Iran, but I suspect that the 'blank' comes from elsewhere. Quite how a Mahan Air display model ended up in the UK, I've no idea, theories anybody?

Anyhow, here she is.

Neil.

Hi Neil,

Hope all is well.

I remember also seeing this model on eBay a while back and thought that it was somewhat interesting.

You're theory about the model may indeed by correct. IMHO.

This model seems like a "one off" type of airplane.

Only other larger scale Mahan Air model airplane that I've previously seen, are the ones made out of resin in China, like the one below:

Best of luck with your newest acquisition.

Regards, Robert
