I know haha. If you look closely, the livery of his model is wrong. Compare it to the illustration he includes with it.

Also, here's the actual model of the Orient Express at the Smithsonian Museum:

If you look at the side of the model, it shows Kiehl Hendrickson Group which was a large airline planning company (bought by Sabre). It may have been another design exercise. Regardless, I wouldn't say it makes it 'wrong' - there's lots of design exercises that change over the days/months/years.

I wish he gave more history of the model (how/what it was acquired), that'd answer some more questions.

$225 shipping is what's wrong. It will be more like 2x higher given the size of the model.

Not my thing, but a great looking design none the less.
