Default 1:100 Graphideco BA A319 Chelsea Rose

Picked this one up at the Heathrow show, but just got home. I don't normally collect 1:100, but I could not pass up the Chelsea Rose tail.

Chelsea Rose was never applied to a 319, so the model is fictitious. G-STVE was apparently a helicopter. Maybe the model was made for someone called Steve? Anyone shed any light on the origin story for this one?

A very nice acquisition. I think Graphideco models are very good, I have a few of their 1/100 ones. Both the A318 and A319 display models don’t seem that common from any manufacturer. I used to have an AMI/Phelps A318 in Air China colours. Sadly, it perished in a house move some years ago. Enjoy that 319, It’s a gem!

Neil.
