Maybe the angle of the picture, but those engines don't look GE90's to me... hope I'm wrong though.

New engines look good, they do look better than the current batch especially the engine blades. I hope you guys get the size right! Who says JC produces crap?? A tight slap in the face for you-know-who! Keep up the improvements JC!

Highly doubt that there is a new engine, the cost to do such a retooling is costly, regardless of how many people bring it up

Here's an old photo of mine JC Wings SQ 77W 9V-SWR, one can see that those are indeed new engine moulds! The most obvious difference one can see from this angle is the engine fan blades

You are spot on SGT Moody , hadn't even noticed that. My big question is are the engines going to be larger.., the pic doesn't give that impression, and are the pylons going to be changed as well

Our upgraded B777 mould will have detachable gears, just like the Singapore A380 released last month. For the rest of the new features, please refer to the professional photos which will be uploaded very soon .

Gears removable, new engines and I hope new pylons, maybe some 777-300er and 200LR in 200 scale in my collection soon. I don't have got any 777 because of all these mistakes... So, see and wait !

Take a look mat Sgt Moody's Singapore 777, then look at the proview pictures of the new Gemini Thai 777-300ER.
Look at the pylons, particularly at the front. See how the curver up and continues to rise up to the wing. Now look at the Gemini pic. See how the pylon starts off small, and stays level (maybe even going down a bit) until it meets the wing.

Now notice the shape of the engine. Notice how it is smaller at the intake lip and tapers out to a barrel shape for the rest of the engine. Noe look at the Gemini picture ad see how the front of the engin is as large as the nacelle, And appears to taper down toward the rear. Also look at the exhaust cone on the Gemini. Now take a look at the engine strakes on the top inside of the engine on Sgt Moody's 777 and compare it to the strakes on the model at the top of this post. definitely different.

If I were a betting man, I would put money on this being the new GE-90-115B mold with revised pylons, and removeable gear.

For sure...

But the other suggestions are quite realistic and would be very nice improvements.

I think this photo of mine will help more with the comparisons! Ignore the plastic risesoon engine on the tow tug

You are mistaking dear friend, as I said on "nov. Gemini" thread, there isn't any update on this 777-300er. But maybe that serial model will be updated. We haven't any news about that from Gemini, eventhough Gemini and JC-Wings use same mould... So, that's why I hope seeing some accurate 777-300er/200lr mould too !

I also would like to know if GJ used the new JC-mould on their release of the Thai 777.
I hope to get some conformation about that
