Canada bought 5 Airbus 310s over 20 years ago to replace our CC-137 Boeings in the long range transport role. Bought them used from Canadian Airlines which has since disappeared.

The model itself is the very hard to find Revell 310 with aftermarket decals of what is no doubt the ugliest paint scheme of any modern Canadian airframe. Recently the 5 airframes have been painted in some 4 much more attractive schemes. Would love to see decals for them, but as the model itself is SO hard to find I doubt decals will ever come.
