I did see a Thomas Cook A330-200 on eBay not long ago, it might still be on there, it's a custom, and it looks great! Just to let you know

...PULKOVO TU-154!!!

don't remind me on this stupid Pulkovo release
When it was released, many people said the blue is too light but then the smarter guys found a photo to proove that it is right. The excuse was that this one had a kind of expermental livery whith a lighter blue and GJ thought everyone would love the 'special' c/s. See the darker blue one in the background ogf the pic


The stupid thing is that this not only the first but since 8 years already the only Pulkovo model in 1:400, but they choose a one-of livery for this instead of the mainstream. I've even flown on a Pulkovo Tu-154 but didn't get the model because of the c/s Just imagine they made only one Lufthansa model in the experimental yellow scheme and then nothing else for 8 years.
I'm still hoping for Herpa to make one in the right c/s in 1:500 to go along with the IL-86.

Many thanks for your explanation, i did not know the story about this "light blue" livery. But my thought is that "Pulkovo Tu-154 is...Pulkovo Tu-154", a myth for me and, i remember, for all the spotters at Salzburg Airport!
By the way, i have asked to Mr. Borgmann (Herpa) about Pulkovo Tu-154 release in 1:500 scale: he told me that the model was not yet considered, and that they should check the Il-86 sales, before to consider the Tu-154 production. I have seen that there are many many Il-86 to sell...

Re: The Dark Side.

Just purchased:
Vladivostok-Avia A320
S7 Tu-154
Monarch A330-200

You're thinking: you are telling us all the models you are buying, but when will you show the photos?
You're right: "you want facts, not words"...i hope to start to show photos of the first models in two or three days!

No way. The popping champagne bottles from ACB et al. make too much noise. Charter will keep their businesses growing
