Here is a picture of Blue Flame in a German museum: Posted Image
but no details on when it was exposed (or still is?) Does anyone knows more? I see it was mentioned about a year ago in this thread but I'd presume it was/is just on the loan.

If it is still exposed in Germany I might consider going to see it. After all it is part of Croatian mitology, Gary Gabelich being of our origin.

Only if I break my self-imposed ban to buy any more models. After buying 100+ on eBay this year and zeroing my black days resources I decided to quit. And nothing will break my decision. Hmmmm... Blue Flame, you said? I might just take a look if any is on offer. But I won't bid! I promise...

After all just last week I managed not to buy Maisto Hummer in 1:18, so incredibly vulgar and enormous in metalic orange that I have to have it. But I'm still resisting.
