Unusual find in Karachi

Post by kashan » Fri Mar 06, 2009 11:31 pm

I came across a balloon wala selling those pool toys that you fill with air and he had an Arkia Israel Airlines 757 model, was selling it for Rs.170.

I didnt buy it and he just had one, anyways it was a very crude interpretation of a 757 not literally like it infact I wouldnt even call it a 757 just a jet aircraft like thing in Arkia livery, but still an interesting item to be here in Pakistan.

I went looking for the guy again luckily he was roaming the same area so I bought it last night for Rs.100, its quite odd looking part 757-300 part A321 small wings and tail, 777 style huge APU area, miniscule engines but like I said a nice find, seems to be official souvenier with Arkia website address and actual registration 4X-BAW of one of their 757-300 on it too, wonder if whole seller knows its illegal to import these.

As a kid I recall seeing Saudia and Pan Am 747s of such type but not PIA.

I once bought a plastic A330-200 model in Karachi from a Bangladeshi guy selling stuff on the street. he sold it for RS 50.

It was actually a realstic 1:200 scale but the landing gear under the wings was fake and the fesalage was mad eof tranparent plastic-glass but ootherwise it was real in scale & shape. When i compared to my Emirates A340-500 model in the same scale it's the same comparison between a real A330-200 and A340-500

Ran into balloon guy again and he had more of the Arkia planes so its not a rare item.
