A lovely sound that if you've heard it before,you'll know what I'm talking about! Anyway,back to the model....lol.....what scale is this? Looks like 1/200?
Can't wait for GeminiMacs to do these in 400 scale.
Yes, the A400M's here are 1/200 scale.
I only get to see the real deal once a year, at RIAT. The attached is a bit of a cheat. It is Airbus' own A400M having the RAF 100 design added to the tail for the (Amazing) flying display. The RAF example was present in the static display. I guess the RAF don't like throwing their asset about as much as Airbus do, understandable of course
