A340-300 Virgin Atlantic Operation Seagull

Poor model that apparently came out in 1998. The box was beat up and I think the model was either a return from another collector or had been shuffled around on the vendor's shelves for a long time before I bought it.

Problems, problems. The red plastic used to mold both the tailfin and engine nacelles is translucent. The silver ring painted around the leading edge of the nacelles was unevenly applied. Glue is smeared where the nacelles attach to the pylons (see left-side engine and right-side engine). One of the left-side engines is crooked.

The lesson here may be don't buy models with relatively low item numbers.

C-130E Hercules, 37th Airlift Squadron

Well made model with a good paint job.

Prop job. The only complaint might be the chintzy-looking propellers. Why couldn't they have made them a little smoother?
