There WAS an HO plastic one, but it looks like it is no longer made.

Seems that there might still be one in existence ...

Hi All,

I believe the Aerotrain in question was the French version, photographs of which are seen below. There were a few test vehicles built, and they were altered over time so their appearance changes in the available pictures.

As to your original question, Ckendzierski, no, I don't think there has been a paper model of these vehicles produced for us to enjoy. Please check the Wikipedia site for more information on the Aerotrain.

Score and fold,

Thumb Dog
