Airbus A300-600ST Beluga


This aircraft's ungainly ugliness makes it more interesting the more you look at it. The A300-600ST (ST for Super Transport) was nicknamed Beluga for its resemblance to the whale, and the name stuck until it became its official designation. 

Derived from the Airbus A300 wide-body aircraft, the Beluga is designed to transport oversized cargo and parts for the A380 aircraft. It can carry up to 47 tons of cargo. Only five were manufactured, and this die-cast model is aircraft number 5.

Manufacturer: Dragon Wings
Scale: 1:400
Length: 5.48"
