Before Making A/c Models,try To Know Aviation More

Tue Apr 03, 2007 5:46 pm

Check this picture out!

LH with a yellow fuselage (ok not as boring as their current livery)

BA with blue wings

Well I guess these guys should try to inform themselves a bit better before trying to make plane models.

Same kind only that this time, a travel agency in ZRH seems not to know what an a/c really looks like,
Check the way they placed the wing

In their defense, those don't look like expensive, high-end models...

Just the cheap, basic snap-on plastic thing. Can't expect much from that.
I'll do my own airline. With Blackjack. And hookers. In fact, forget the airline.

And the average member of the public probably won't notice the mistakes. All they care about is getting from A to B!

Very true, cheap knock-offs for a particular market segment. If you can't tell the difference you won't care. Its a fundamental selling concept. The second picture is probably just someone having some fun, you know, bored travel agent staff on a slow day. If that's the explanation its actually quite funny  Smile

LOL....I actually could forgive the first picture as cheap copies but the 2nd one with the wing upside down is just lazy.
