ATR 72-200, (registration F-WWLI) sporting PIA logo sticker visited Pakistan in 1994 to fly demonstration flights for PIA. At that time ATR 72 was considered as possible replacement for airline's Fokker F-27 fleet. But, somehow, plan to replace PIA F-27 fleet with new aircraft type was postponed in 1990s.

Nadir, I have very small collection: 1960s livery aeroclassics PIA Boeing 720B and Boeing 707 (both still in packing) won on eBay plus a PIA Boeing 747-200B 1990s livery snap-together model.

I'm not a keen aircraft model collector.

That looks fantastic. If only Herpa Wings did an ATR in 1/.200 scale.
