Default question: skymarks MAS A380 or jcwings?

Hi guys!
What are your opinions regarding the above question?
I found a skymarks one on ebay sold by dreamflyers787, the highly detailed version. Do any of you guys have this version and mind sharing some photos?
I prefer the skymarks' mould for the placement of the MLGs, but what do you guys think?

Plastic with no antennas and less detail vs. diecast with beacons and antennas and more printed details

No contest.

If it is just about the mould then what do you guys think?
The jcwings version is also slightly harder to find locally and costs more though.haha
And i already have a GJ EK A380.

JC is better with more detail but the price almost doubles. I have RS version and I'm very satisfied with it. MAS may be the most detailed version of A380 released by RS so far.

Wow really nice john thank you!
What do you think of the fitment of the wings on the models?do they fit well like on hogan models?because i have a risesoon airasia a340 and i'd say the wing fitment is terrible.not flush at all

For me personally, Risesoon/Skymarks is million miles better than JC Wings version because of 1 thing: CORRECT COLOUR SCHEME.

That turquoise swirls (instead of cyan) on the JC version is so distracting lol

I highly recommend you too get the Risesoon version, as it was packaged in super elegant, authentic & official presentation box (as above pic)

I learned that Hogan is no longer holding the MAS license so..

Some day, could be GJ or Herpa will release their versions.

Hi Jetdin: IMO the wing is firm. Here are more photos for your reference.

Superb insights Mr Hung!

Interesting fact: MAS never offered this Risesoon model for sale on their online/inflight shopping. Its only for corporate & free gifts for those who bought MAS ticket offer during the MATTA Fair, which is a travels & holiday fair.

this may sound petty, but you may wanna cross check the registration numbers on the risesoon/skymark model...

Thanks for the photos johnhung! :-D
I think there are 2 versions of this release.
One is the less detailed version with the reg no. F-WWSU, the other is the highly detailed one with the reg no. 9M-MNA

in my experience stay away from skymarks if you are serious about quality control when it comes to printing. Skymarks have great mould accuracy, but the quality is poor, often with visible seam lines. But the worst part by far is the printing, I have 2 skymarks models (1 a380 and 1 a330), maybe i'm unlucky, but on both the positioning of the windows was way off, on the a380 they were visibly sloping down toward the nose, on the a330 the windows on one side were almost a centimeter higher than on the other side, ruins the model completely for me. JC wings are excellent quality, well worth the money if you have it

If you want cheap and cheerful then the Skidmark version will do you nicely

The stand alone ruins it for me - any of their plastic models I've had I've given away to my teenage son as most of them look poor comparisons to the diecast equivalents. JC's A380 is a beaut in my view

You already place the bid and purchase the item and during the period you also didnt contact me and now you told me that you have no money to pay.
I think this is very bad and i will mention to Ebay that you didnt pay for the item and reject you to place the bid/purchase again.

Im sorry for the inconveniences i have caused you airkuro.
I did not know what to do in order to cancel the order. I really thought i that i would have actually purchased the model but there was a last minute sudden change of mind.
If you think that that is the best action to take against me then i will accept it airkuro.
Again apologies to you airkuro.:-(
