Again the passenger windows are printed too high, especially on port side. This now seems to become a structural issue with the JC 787-9. Such a splendid mould with such a disturbing printing error. Please JC do something about it!

I don't think there is a model out there that is perfect. I have ordered these two and look forward to getting them. If I waited for JC to fix everything that was wrong with every model I have I would have nothing at all. I get theses as they are what they are.... 2 Air Nz 787-9. If they fix it (and I hope they do in time) great.....but for me id rather have 2 Air Nz 787-9 sitting at home.


That's just my two cents worth....

Stand down.
As you were.

Where is A6-EGO? This is what I would consider a "serious error," as it detracts from the beauty of the aircraft.

If it were another brand/maker, the so called experts would be bombing these by now.
But since its not, better thing to do is avoid drawing attention to these....the usual !

Correct, this is where we need the slide rule analysis and inserted measurements and arrows to show the faults, as is usually the case with IF models.

I think most of the 'slide rule analysts' work for JCW.

I bought the JCW ANA 787-9 on this mold and was really disappointed. The low engines and no ground clearance was the issue to me before I even got top high window line. (glad someone pointed this out. I'm pretty good with structural stuff but not with cheatline and window height). I sure hope JCW fixes this because the rest of the mold looks pretty good.

I don't want a model that doesn't 'look right'. I don't care if the height was accurate for an aircraft loaded to its maximum gross take off weight. Most Boeings sit slightly nose low on the ground and the 787 is no exception. I want one that looks like the pictures that I see of the real thing. The problem to me looks like under sized main gear on the new JCW mold. It doesn't matter what the exact problem is. I won't buy another one until the problem is fixed. Oh, while you are at it JCW, please put a slightly smaller nose wheel on the model too.

Can you pls ask your friends at the JC factory what is going on with the window printing?

This model actually makes the IF200 707 printing look good!!

Engines are too close to the ground, it would look better with bigger landing gears giving more space under the engines.
Very cool livery anyway!
