It's also a 1:400 metal die cast.

But considering it costs over 60 Canadian dollars I have decided to pass on it.
Really?! Havnt heard of this release! Could you get the make of the model and if it is a sample mould or a general release? any pics?

Possibly, but if you look closely it does appear to be in pashmina livery also the plane is limited to 1000 pieces wheras the A300 which came in plain green livery is not limited in production. It does seem to appear of Pashmina liver y if you look closer. I could be wrong but that's what it looks like

Its definetly not pashmina.. contact them if you want to be sure. I believe there was a sample Boeing 747 Pashmina made by Gemini Jets - but only one exists and its in the hands of a private collector.

As PK777 says that is not a Pashmina tail. I have the Pashmina tail, but it is a Gemini Jets Sample model and very rare.
