Very few airliners. Please do not abuse Crossair for models.

I don't reccomend asking the airlines for models. Ask for "Memorabilia, Aviation Collectable, etc.), and hope you'll get a model. I'm pretty sure the airliners will think you're greedy, and won't send anything if you just ask for models.

Good Luck!

I received a little B747-400 plastic snap model from Thai. I also received a Schabak A310 model from Air Niugini. I didn't ask for models, I just asked for "something from your airline for my collection".

Asking For Models

Sat Mar 18, 2000 5:47 pm

I do not ask for free models. When in my letter/email/fax asking for memorabilia, i ask separately the following:

"Can you please advise me if *AIRLINE* sells models of the aircraft in it livery, what types you have available (if at all), and how much they cost"

I have gotten FREE models from the following:

Fischer Air 737-300 (snap-together)
Condor 767 and 757 (snap-together)
Mandarin Airlines 747-400 (snap-together)
World Airways MD-11 (snap-together)
Volga-Dnepr An-124 (snap-together)
Air Niugini A310 (snap-together)
China Yunnan Airlines 767 (small metal (not Herpa or likewise but looks like company made one)
Dragonair A330 (snap-together)
Cargolux 747-400F (snap-together)
Airtours 767 (snap-together)
Midwest Express MD-88 (snap-together)
QANTAS Wunala and Nalanji (snap-together) (know a guy in QANTAS for this one)
Czech Airlines A310 (snap-together)
Aeroflot Il-62 (large travel agent sized)
Continental Airlines 747-200 (old colours large travel agent sized) (knew the Australian Regional Manager)
Air UK Fokker 100 (snap-together)

I have also gotten posters of the following:

Lufthansa Cargo MD-11
Aerolineas Argentinas A340
Air North DC-3
Fischer Air 737-300
World Airways MD-11
Air Malta A320
and a few more I can pull out if anyone wants to know what else
Britannia 767 and 757 (snap-together)
and a few more I can't quite think of right now
