Default IF200 A350 VS JC Wings A350 (Carbon Livery)

I am trying to make a detailed report to compare both models. Please feel free to add information and please correct me if I make any mistake. Overall, JC Wings has much more details than the IF one. It is also "more correct" and therefore I think it is better.

Please distinguish which one is IF and which one is JC, I am not going to mark every photo :

1. Nose and cockpit windows



JC's cockpit windows need to be larger.

2. Trent XWB Engine shape, exhaust cone, color of exhaust cone, N1 fan





JC's engine shape and exhaust cone are much closer to the real thing. They even have blue color on the exhaust cone like the real plane.




3. Landing light



JC's landing light is too large, but it is already corrected in their Qatar release. IF's landing light has no details.

4. Front antenna



5. Wing Top



6. Wing bottom



7. Fuel jettison nozzle



8. APU




JC's APU is a separated plastic part. Its shape looks closer to the real thing.

9. Fuselage carbon fibre patterns




JC is more accurate in the carbon patterns

10. Details on the belly






JC has more printings

11. Landing gear (size and color of wheel hubs, tyre thickness, separation of wheels)







It's very obvious which landing gears are better..

12. Details of struts





13. Details of engine




14. Position of the “silver rectangle” near the engine ring






JC is correct (the "silver rectangle" should be on the same side)

15. Winglet printing, the character "X"






JC is correct

16. Logo light




Only present on JC

17. Boxes and stands



even JC's stand is much better...

the rush in term of design and the go for an approximative shape is a shame.

correct models are pretty hard to find but it is a part of the collecting game.

But at the end of day, we all have a pretty good representation of models we like with the current offers of manufacturers !
customer's choices are really personal and we must respect that.

Both are made with care, despite some mistakes. I'd like to see the JCW nose and the cockpit updated.

This makes the JC Wings version look better than I thought.

They did a pretty good job considering this is their 1st go at it. I'd expect them to make tweaks going forward, like how the 777 has evolved.

JC Wings has a lot more details. The engine and landing gear are much better than IF.

Thanks for the comprehensive report. I hope this will end arguments between right and wrong. At the end, you have choice. Buy the one you like.

Me too...This forum is monitered, it's time for both manufacturers to make corrections on their own issues.

I just received my JC Wings A350, and all i can say is wow!!!!

What a beautiful looking aircraft and JC has done in my opinion has done a fantastic job (especially considering this is a new mould and their first attempt).

I look fwd to the Qatar and more of these aircraft in various airlines to come. I am a Boeing man but I must say the A350 is a really great looking aircraft, and gives the 787 a run for its money!!

I like Inflights stand. Is it an all metal stand? Also the blue everyone is referring to on the tailpipe is due to the heat and the replica of it on the model looks horrible. But regardless of wherever they place it, cant be right or wrong. They change that engine for failure and the blue area will change also. To me that is one little thing that they could leave out.

I think the word "horrible" is much more suitable when it is used to describe IF A350's wings, engine shape and landing gears.

I wish they could morph the moulds to have the IF200 nose shape and cockpit printing with all the other JC printing elsewhere and JC engines.

This thread was very helpful, thank you A6-EGO for posting the comparison pictures.

This N1 fan looks even better than the IF one. These fan blades are long enough and thin enough. IF's fan blades are too short and too thick. (making the whole fan looks too small)

Both are pretty and for good measure I'd this time have taken the JCW one, but I am not happy with the cockpit print. That's the "face" of the aircraft and if it is not accurate it kind of damages the whole impression.

Just got my JC Wings A350 Carbon, very nice model. Some improvements will make it very good in future productions. Noise a bit too pointy, cockpit a bit too small (but better locking than it seems here on some fotos), landing lights, to me that´s it. The cockpit may be a bit too small, but I like the delicate printing of the silver window lines. Pylon shape and missing color at the front also could be improved.

Main thing: I like it!

Great report A6-EGO! Thanks for your sharing this with us. If I get around to getting an Airbus A350, It will certainly be the JC version. I can only imagine how much more inflight wants to charge for theirs.... Well done JC Wings! You've done it yet again!
