One of the many surprises that awaited me in Frankfurt included a gift from Lufthansa of a Limited Edition desktop model of D-ABYA.   The 747-8i that was the first aircraft to carry the new livery design.   There’s also an A321 carrying the colors as well, but the 747-8i is the one that stands out for me.

The kit is not yet available but when it does hit the shelves it’s bound to become a fan favorite.    The model that I was given is a 1:400 scale and as I mentioned earlier, will be produced in limited numbers.    The model came packaged in a heavy duty box with thick foam protecting the aircraft.   In addition, a sturdy metal stand is provided to set the airplane on if you want it raised off the ground.

Here are a few shots as I was unpacking her….

The model came with a card indicating that this was number 201 of the Limited Edition

Safely packaged in heavy foam.   When unpacking, please watch for a tiny screw that is beneath one of the stand pieces.   The screw is used to assemble the stand.
