I have a Virgin A340-600 model in 1/500 scale in the latest color scheme. I bought it at The Airplane Shop some months before. Check on their web-site, I'm sure that you will find it there.

Herpa Wings have actually made four models in Virgin Atlantic colours, according to the model database on DiecastAircraft.com.

Click HERE to view all Herpa Wings Virgin Atlantic models!

They have made a:

  • Virgin Atlantic Airways Airbus 340-311 G-VBUS, Lady in Red in Delivery Colours
  • Virgin Atlantic Airways Boeing 747-2** in Original Colours
  • Virgin Atlantic Airways Airbus 340-642 G-VSHY, Cloud Nine (Since renamed Claudia Nine), in New Colours
  • Virgin Atlantic Airways Boeing 747-4** in New Colours

    They are all sample models with production runs of only 50 each, with the exception of the Airbus 340-311, of which only 20 were made, and of course, the Airbus 340-642, Herpa Wings Item No. HW507400 of which an unlimited amount of units were produced, but if you would like to purchase a model of a Virgin Atlantic Airbus 340-642, you'd be hard-pressed to find one. I've been looking for 30 minutes for a retailer that still carries them and I still can't find one.  Sad
