Default JC Wings Cathay Pacific 747-400 VR-HOP

A few days back JC announced a Cathay 744, with a hybrid old scheme livery (leased from ANZ). Well they have now also announced a release of the proper green cheatline livery too, reg VR-HOP. This bird is my holy grail!

There's only been a few pictures of the prototype, a lot of excitement though which hopefully doesn't turn out to be hype. The SQ Tropical 744s (under bbox guise) are the first releases under the JC mould, due in the next month.

They announced this model on their Facebook page along with a lot of other releases. I assume it will be a regular release just like their other models. So I'm sure plenty to go around.

It is great news for everyone who missed out on the original VR-HOT special release, plus this model will likely supersede that model as it will have a real polished belly.

I believe you could have a production run of 5000 of these and they would still sell out.

Wallet now opens.

NOTED:There are no actual release date planned and price/detail are not yet finalised, collectors may need to face their own risk of getting a different registration if they pre order the model at this stage. We suggest everyone to wait until we have a confim item number and the date of release.

Thank you for the clarification, Marcus. Otherwise many panic buyers' fund would have been held up by those money suckers for months, until the models' arrival.

Well I hope whatever reg they release, it's the same scheme as shown above in this thread. I love those green stripes across the engines, totally adds to the model!
