Default Looking for the best A380 1:200 scale

Hey guys, I hope you can help me pinpoint a good A380 model for me. I am looking for an A380 in 1:200 scale in the HOUSE COLOR.

My first choice was going to be Hogan

but there is 3 things wrong with it.
1.) the cockpit is a bit too small compared to the real thing
2.) The middle door is cut off
3.) And the engine blades are not curved

Now I know Hogan has updated their model since then and addressed all 3, but they made their cockpit windows a bit too big. In addition, I didn't find it in the House color, could anyone tell me if they have updated the House Color model?

My second choice was going to be Skymarks but I personal feel like the cockpit widows are too big

Plus it seems like it has less detail than Hogan

So are there any other 1:200 scale A380s out there that's in House Color?

2nd Hogan release of A380 House colors has the miss printed escape doors corrected (both sides) and the engine turbine blades curved.
The cockpit windows are still small... and other details are left out...

ah thanks for informing me, that puts Hogan back on the map. I rather have small cockpit windows than oversized windows.

I looked at Gemini A380, it seems like (based from the pictures) they have the cockpit in the correct ratio. However, its 1:400 scale.


Is there any word when will Gemini will create an A380 in 1:200 scale?

I did a search around for other 1/200 scale A380s and came across this one. From the photo it looks like they got the windows right but I don't know who made it


Could anyone give me more details about this model? Its Item # RM004
I found it here Replica Miniatures - 1/200 Scale A380 Models From Skymarks & Hogan Wings

Another question about the 2nd Hogan release of the A380 did they address the off-balance problem? I heard the model tips back so the nose is slightly up when you put it flat on the floor

for example this pic:


it tips back slightly.

My SA still has that problem, and it has the fixed door and curved engines.

From the color of turbo fan I guess it's made by Lupa, a previous manufacturer of 1:200 A380 model for Krisshop.
