A332 Plastic Models

Wed Apr 30, 2003 11:07 am

Does anyone know a company that sells 1:144 scale plastic A332 models?

I'm trying to find one, but haven't had much luck. I'm talking about a kit you build, not something already assembled.

I know Revell Germany has a 1:144 scale A330 kit. I am not sure if it is a
-200 or -300 though.

Hmmm, all I have is an un-opened Canada 3000 A330 model. The ones they give you on flights. I'm not sure the scale though.

You can try and convert a Revell A340 kit into an A330. I think all that would need to be worked on is to modify the wings, change the engines and cut the fuelselage length down a bit. Modelairliners.com has a Revell A340 for $15.50. I buy some of my model kits from them. You can also take the Ebay approach and wait for someone to sell a kit on the online auction. This will take time and patience, but occasionally you can find some great bargains and some rare model kits.

I found some info for an A340/A330 conversion:

Also, take note of paragraph 2.

Hope this helps you out.

The Revell Germany 1/144 is a -300 model. It's been released in Airbus House Colors, LTU, Aer Lingus, and SN Brussels liveries. You shouldn't have much of a problem shortening the fuselage and converting it into a -200 model. I believe all of them come with both the GE and PW engines, but somebody else may be able to confirm this.

Cheers!

I know that the house colros has only one set of engines. in addition to cutting down the fues, fin must be enlarged in both height and leagnth.
When in doubt, one B pump off
