Recently a friend of mine flew to London on Virgin Atlantic, on which he purchased a die-cast model of a VA 747-400 duty free right there on the flight. It got me thinking, is there a site that has models like that for sale? Or might someone know how I can get models from airlines like Virgin Atlantic and Continental? I got a 757-200 model in Continental colors, though I signed up for a credit card to get it, but I really like the weight and coloring of this Virgin Atlantic 747-400. Has "IXO" stamped underneath.
Another cool thing was that the model had a tail number and I was able to show him the actual aircraft on Airliners.net
