A300-600ST Beluga #5 1:400**Discontinued**Used
A classic issue by DRAGON! This model was initially announced to have an opening nose [which is why it is molded in plastic] but this turned out NOT to be the case. Do NOT try to open the nose as you will break it. One of our customers did open up the nose of his model twenty years ago & ended up breaking it- but he DID find that there was a nose weight behind the nose to keep the model sitting on it's nose gear. He actually thought it was a cargo load- it is to laugh!! Frank- what would we do without you!!
Dragon issued this model several times between 2000-2011 in various liveries. They are beautiful & well worth having. Airbus commissioned a run or two more recently & these recent issues are CRAP !!! Do not buy them, as they look washed out & void of detail. Many of the Beluga's that you see on ebay are from the new re-issues commissioned by Airbus. You will regret buying these models. Make sure that you are getting one of the original pieces, issued by Dragon during their hey-day. The originals are excellent-the new re-issues are poor. Nuff said.
