Welcome to Bruegel – the 6th Belgian Icon of Brussels Airlines.
This time, an ode is made to one of the most talented artists of the sixteenth century: Flemish master Pieter Bruegel the Elder. He is well-known for his folk scenes and scenes from peasant life. He let his imagination run wild like no other when he painted classical themes in an idiosyncratic, jocular way. The hard life in the countryside touched him deeply, which prompted him to masterfully record everyday people of all walks of life.
In total, parts of no less than 10 of his paintings can be recognized on this Airbus 320. Brussels Airlines is collaborating with Visit Flanders, BOZAR and two Belgian artists (Jos De Gruyter & Harald Thys) on the occasion of Bruegel’s death 450 years ago.
The scale models are available in sizes 1:200 (snapfit) and 1:100 (snapfit & deluxe edition).
Please note: the ‘monobloc’ 1:100 version has been renamed the ‘deluxe edition’ as it doesn’t match all requirements to be called a real monobloc! It is not made of Polyurethane (PU) and does not consist of 1 single piece, but is actually a snapfit which has been glued together, offered in a deluxe box with a limited edition certificate.
The Rackham monobloc is the only real monobloc offered by Brussels Airlines, as it is produced by a different supplier.
