Question Skymarks A380-800 or Skymarks 777-300ER?

Hey guys,

Which one of those can you recommend me? I've been looking for a couple of days and they're at the same price range.

A380-800 in Qantas livery
Or
B777-300ER in Emirates livery.

Both of them Skymarks, which one is the most detailed one? The size counts too..

Also.. Are the GE90 finally fixed in the 777-300ER? I remember back in the day when I first got my 777 and the engines looked like small RR ones.
Anyway, thank you!

I'd recommend the Emirates.

Qantas is also available in Hogan version as this brand is more accurate.

Does that helping?

Chris,

My two cents on the 777-3000ER..

Typically Skymarks/Risesoon (SM/RS) models has great stenciling on the fuselage, especially around the forward cargo door and nose area - an area Hogan has not been too consistent at (due to requests when making the order i) details overload, or ii) minimal details).

On the other hand, some of SM/RS 777-300ER models do come with bare looking wings, without any wing details such as wing walk arrows, black ice warning stripes, etc. whereas this is an area that Hogan excels in. Despite the inconsistency of details on the fuselage, all Hogan 777-300ER models has adequate wing details - this is one of the key visual attributes that makes a 777-300 a 777-300. Raked wingtips is only for -300ER.

Based on what I am seeing around the Net, seems to suggest that the Emirates 777-300ER model by Skymarks does not have wing details. Also, the engine cone and lip has grey finish instead of silver, and there is no aircraft registration on the nose landing gear door.



If you have extra dollars to spare, I would highly recommend you to get the upcoming Emirates 777-300ER by Gemini Jets. The model comes with a plethora of details, beacon lights, antennas, and most importantly, a proper GE-90-shaped engines and pylons. It should hit the stores by middle of this month.

To your last point, the corrected GE90 engines are only for Gemini Jets and JC Wings models. I am not sure if SM/RS has different types of GE90 engines in the past but their current one looks just fine.

Hope this helps, Chris.
