Default I bought an Eagle (SQ A380 9V-SKS)

I was well aware about Eagle's reputation for not being as accurate as their competitors before purchasing the model. Maybe I'm blind but these usually small things don't bother me.

Would I like a better model? Of course! But I'm happy and that's what's important to me. Bash away.

That is whats great about this hobby, to each their own. There is certainly something for everyone to choose from.

The long nose gear and the huge gaps where the wing meets the fuselage are just horrible I think. I'm not bothered by little things either, but these things stand out like a sore thumb!

The JC Wings/Gemini A380 is just much nicer mould all together. And they made this same model also.

But I'm glad you are happy with your purchase. Enjoy the model!

The shadow on the first 2 photos? It's because of the lighting.

They are big. It's makes my InFlight200 744 almost look small.

Cheers!

It actually looks very similar to their 1/400 offering...If I did not know better I would of assumed this.

Its a nice model and in comparison with other offerings is still a unique and classy model....

If the wing curvature is very good, the wing is too fat at the junction of the body. The gear should be updated too.
