Do you remember the little Airbus House Color A 319 with additional printing on the fuselage?

It was sold at Herpa eXtra shop for very short time some month ago with a normal Herpa box as it was delivered from Herpa to Airbus. But Airbus used this model as a gift at the "Airbus Materiel Symposium 2001", presented in a little very orange wooden box filled - besides the model itself - with excelsior:-)

By the way. The additional printing was done by Herpa at Dietenhofen.
