Default IF 200 KLM Beijing Wing Issue

Does anyone with this model (or another IF 200 747 released at the same time) feel that the shape of the wing bending is a bit off? Though my model wings are almost symmetrical, they seem to bend relatively sharply instead of curving smoothly like other models. The last IF 200 747 I had was the SQ from 2012 and I didn't notice this issue with that one.

At first I thought it might just be a defect in my model, but I get the same feeling after looking at some other people's photos.

I would post photos, but I am away from all of my models for the next month.

On another note, I'm pumped for all the new KLM releases (especially that silver belly 747-200 )

Here some reference pictures from Inflight's mold about the wing bent. What exactly is wrong with your 747?

Hmm yeah I think I might have just been imagining things. Anyways, when I get back in the next month, I'll take a second look at it, and if I still think somethings off, I'll post some pictures.

Thanks for the nice pictures by the way!

That's just the kink in the wing sweep, its normal on all 747's, and when viewed from that angle it makes the wing look like it has a large bend in it. This photo shows this illusion on a real 744

(not my picture)

Makes sense, it just looks very different from my premiums.
