What scale? Plastic or die cast?

If you like kits, you can buy Revell A319 with BA decals and A320 and build it with either CFM-56 or V2500 engines.

I'm very sure there are, I'll search around for you later on tonight. Any particular livery, such as the current, world tails or landor?

Well, you might have to spend some time deciding which ones you want, becuase this site has everything you could think of. They have the all the major kits, and all the best decals. You'll find what you need here if you're looking at build-it-yourself kits.

Wooster models had a bunch of them back in the '90's as well, just as the World Tail livery came out. They are/were 1:200 scale (?) and came in the WT clourse as well as Landor. However, I doubt you can get them new anywhere, perhaps some used ones on Ebay or some trading forums.

Also, being in Europe, you have access to many aviation shops, I'd take some time and visit some of them, you'll never know what they have hidden in their corners.

I try my best although I don't seem to be close to many. I really want to go to the Megastore in the Netherlands. I have been to the London Airshow last year which was good but I struggle to find much else.

I just read in the latest issue of Airliner World that Gemini have just released one this month, visit their website (it escapes my memory, just type it into Yahoo or Google)

I can reccomend Gemini Jets, although I can't reccomend letting your Golden Retriever pick one up and drop it on a stone flag, which happened to my QF A332, leaving it tailless, as strangely, nose wheel less

New Wooster made by Herpa/PPC make a British Airways A320 in Union Colours plastic in 1:200 scale. Starjets made a lovely solid 1/200 BA A319 with great little rolling rubber wheels and fan blades. Premier-portfolio.net do the full range of BA models now, including a BA A319.

Yeah, but only widebodies. I want something like a 737 or an A320...



edit: stupid me, I meant an Union Flag livery in stead of Landor. Herpa has the 747 in Union Flag livery, but no narrowbodies...

Concorde is a narrowbody ....  Wink  Big grin

Herpa has the Union Flag livery available on the B777 as well.

You can get one of an A320, but I believe it was only sold in a special set and has been discontinued ....

But they have been produced and should be available somewhere.
