Phoenix China Eastern Airbus A320 'Shanghai Expo 2010' 1/400
Alot of detail for such a small model! To appreciate it ,use a magnifying glass! So much colour and going on...

Firstly i do not generally acquire small type aircraft models but when is saw the 'loudness' of this ones livery,i had to have it!
I think the model was around for a few years maybe,sold out for a while but AMS manage to locate one ,brand new! I think directly from the Manufacture/Brand that happens to be on this occasion Phoenix 1:400.
Really i should give this a 4* as of the highly amount of used Gloss that Phoenix always applies but its gets a 5 *as of the quality overall and of the graphic details! A cheerfull little thing indeed!Lovely colours....
This is a known thing with Phoenix they do tend to have some excellent models released then do some absolute crap ones or lack of care/attention of late?Mainly because i feel they rush to market!
With this model, the attention is as good as a NG /HYJL even Panda models that generally do loads of liveries for this aircraft type! Actually its VERY surprising they have not done so for this livery to my knowledge? Maybe to hard or Phoenix beat them to it and they felt the market place of interest for that livery was not strong enough to create an opposite?WHo knows! Its all about numbers.No point entering a model for consumership if the marketplace for that livery has already been consumed thus weak from lack of interest.Probably the 3 above may and say 'may' have done a better job but i cannot see how as of everything is so mini and spot on!
Overall i would recommend this to anyone who likes a wacky livery and is a fan of A320's. Not sure how many were made ,its stated limited but with Phoenix probably into a few thousand or so world wide!
