Default Hong Kong Trader B747-8F...pics!

Had to....
Not something new, got it from another collector, she is in mint condition and inspite of " all the flaws" one can find it is a great looking model!
Now looking for an affordable NCA
Enjoy,



















And the usual air-to-air shot )

One of my favorite models, too. The inflight rendering is brilliant.

Ah, another plastic collector too! that is so nice, Rui! These Hogans have so bad noses, they look weird, but that livery is great!
Still waiting on the Beluga, you doing a picture like that air to air too?!

Mathias, yes, its plastic yes they have weird noses, but couldnt let this one go. Great price, and the livery is sweet! I hope they make her in metal one day, as the NCA and Atlas Air !?
Fingers crossed,

I think someone tried to put wheels on this model, I saw it before.
Just google it and you can find some photos, I think?
But I prefer them like that, at least the model stays original.
You choose, Herr Rui!

You are right, Aki, it is a Hogan.
Though the box doesnt say anything really...bought it as a Herpa, but it is a Hogan.

A 748's wings do not flex like that at all.

I like this model, glad I have it in my collection too.

Now that JC has done the B747-8 mold, I wouldn't ignore the freighter version. I am certainly interested in this one Cathay Pacific Cargo (HK trader or regular livery), Cargolux, Panalpina and Atlas Air.

Greetings Rui!

I cringe at the wingflex. I have seen several 748's depart Toronto and none of them have flex that much

Very nice, I wish they do this in metal one day. It would be a great release, can you imagine?
Wow!
