Which one do you mean... The only Golden model I know of was the one that BOAC did years ago... They came in a presentation box and a small stand. I ave th model, but no stand or box sadly. When they come up on eBay they go for silly money!

Was it actually Gold, or was it the Gulf Air model:

Ummm, ignoring the fact it's a Tristar (LOL) I have to say that it's pretty hideous! Certainly not seen our heard of that one.
