Default Inflight200 Garuda B777-300ER...pics!

Garuda B777-300ER by IF200, the new mould by this manufacturer has landed today!

The whole thing weighs about 2,5kgs ! Shes a real heavy bird!
As usual, I am sharing with you my personal views and images from this model in detail.

You’ll be able to see ( and decide) for yourself how the model looks, but of course, theres nothing like checking it in person, cameras tend to distort the subject, colours always vary, so again, have this in mind when going through the next photographs.

I also ask to keep it clean, much has been said already and discussed, check other threads if in doubt. These images are for your viewing pleasure, and I ask you not to use them and change them, for any comparison purposes, “constructive” criticism, slander or bashing, etc, you know what I mean.

I have purchased these models simply because I liked them, theres no such thing as the perfect model, we all know that and theres always a choice!

Having said this, here they are now, the photos showing you in detail the brand new Garuda B777-300ER by Inflight200.
Enjoy! ( or maybe not!)
Yours,
Rui

“Landing Gears”

Far from cheap as mentioned by someone,
these are heavy and sturdy.They also have a great way to get secured
to the wing as you will see in the last two pictures.
No worries to have them droped, when you’re playing “Airports”!

Also, to those worried that the wheels and tires
were not the same size, here they are;







Heres what I mean; Very clever !
It works too, no wobbly gears anymore!




The BOX !







Tomorrow if time permits,
I will post the TAM B777-300ER,
Vietnam A350 and EVA B747-400.

I think Inflight made a nice 777.

Now I'm really looking forward to get the TAAG.



Thanks for the pics Rui.

Copied that Sir!!!
There are always rules on Rui's threads, not even use the photos for comparison purposes?
Make sure you keep it clean and use words such as nice, beautiful, best, excellent...etc.
I am agree that this is a nice model for general public.

BUT

To maintain the spirit of a "forum", sorry but I have to break them a little with my two cents worth.
Yes, we disscussed before, but we are waiting for more photos for some points below:
Front gear does look too far back
Engines slope too much towards the rear
Wheels should be light grey rather than silver
Engine pylons in wrong shape
Nose section is too think and pointy

The "Very clever" gears are not "invented" today but used for a while, not new to me but they do make a nice copy on that.

Suggestion to DAC, give us an option to lock our thread as "Read only" ,no reply allowed to stop futher criticism, slander or bashing,etc.

Never mind the minor flaws, like the fact the engines seem to have good ground clearance. May have to get this one.

the body is more accurate than JCW or GJ200, but the engine pylons should be updated. I think IF200 can do it easily. If this is done, I'll buy this mould only !

You are right on all these points. I share your point of view. But this mould is still better than JCW and GJ200.

i think this is the best diecast 777 so far. small mistakes here and there but overall the best overall model. because the engines are nice and big.
on a side note, is it really 2.5kgs?even the GJ200 a380 is 'only' 1.7kgs haha

I have to agree with you.

Is the model perfect? No, I don't think any model is. But I also think this model kicks the standard quite a bit further down the road and raises the bar for everyone else. I am a BIG JCW fan, but I agree that JCW/Gemini has some catching up to do if they want to compete.

I'm probably alone on this, but I think the nose gear is right about where it should be. Look at the distance between the front door and cockpit windows on the model then the 1:1. I think it is the forward door is printed a little too far forward. Printing is easy to fix.

It doesn't really matter. Congratulations InFlight, you have created a stunning model that raises the bar by quite a bit.

And as always, thank you so much Rui for your stunning pictures. You are a real asset to this forum.

Sorry, one nit to pick with a previous post. The engines look REALLY good to me.





Sorry, I'm not seeing a big difference. I think InFlight did a pretty good job, in fact the best one yet, on the engines.

Again, this is just a well done, stunning model. I keep looking at the pictures and am amazed.

Like their 747, this mold with a few tweaks will set the new standard for years to come.

Thanks Rui for sharing!

This IF200 77W is really looking good and I'm sure they are listening and will fix the flaws. BTW, they had already fixed the front gear position and the position will be more accurate in their KLM 77W

this model looks good so far, a bit of upgrades here and here could even set the bar higher...
the engines and the gears are nice
the gears are pretty secured when locked into place and I like it

Thks Riu for the great pics

The model looks great, better than the first ones we saw! Very nice effort by IF indeed. I might pick up the TAM version.

Overall I think I still prefer the JC/GJ mould.

Thank you for putting in the effort to post all of these pictures. Now that you have actually held the model and seen it in detail, how would you compare it to the JC/gemini? I understand that both models have their strengths and weaknesses, but when in conflict, which one would you pick?

This new mold looks quite good, but there is one BIG minus which most people forget.
If Rui is correct (and why shouldn't he be) the weight of the model is the issue here.

If the total weight for this model is way over 2kg, shipping it across the world will be quite an expensive business.
The Gemini/JC one can be kept just below 2kg total weight (incl. packing material), which is about € 10,00 less for shipping to AUS/USA for example than this IF200 model alone.

The same goes for the new DC-10 and the new IF200 L1011 models.
Both of them are also well over 2kg total weight (which makes them equal/more heavy than a 747 in 1:200 scale).
For the DC-10, there is no alternative from other manufacturers, but for the L1011 and the 777 models there is....

yes, I agree...they have to come up with a solution for this, maybe the model can be made of some lighter material? the stand is also metalic, does its job well, so it adds to the weight, the whole parcel weighs 2,5 kgs, so shipping would be an issue here, I should know too! $$$
I'm sure they'll figure it out, ...thats one thing I've noticed with Eagle/Phoenix, they have reduced the dimensions on their boxes for the A350, A380, and use the plastic inside, instead of this soft foam, which I prefer really.

CA
They are almost and getting close, the pylon is too flat, in the drawing, you can see the wave pattern on the top, also check how it joint the wing, there should be a step not flush. The cool fan duct, section start from the tip of pylon to the end should be little round curve instead of a straight deep slope. And the nose gear still looks too far back to me.

This supports what I have been saying. The nose gear may need to move forward 1mm or so, but the main problem is the printed door which is too far forward and needs to move back 5-6mm. Moving the door back would almost take care of the problem, and printing is easy to fix.

This may be a strategic decision when they start to build the mould, if they use aluminium(13th of the periodic table, mass 27), the model can be lighter, but only minor modification can be done after built, in case of zinc(30th of the periodic table, mass 65), model is much heavier but they can roll the dice again if something wrong, almost no limit for zinc moulds.

Yes, a piece of cake if they use zinc for this model.

from this side shot comparison here, the engine shape looks really close to the 1:1! well done IF!

Thanks Rui for your 777 pics, great detail as always! So, this is defo the best die cast 777W in die cast in my opinion. Those engines are smashing it...I hope they release a BA 777W at some point, I've been holding out on the 777W, and this mould will make the wait worth it. Might be tempted with the TAAG, as I wouldn't mind building a 737, 777W and (hopefully) 747-300 TAAG fleet.

I was looking forward to purchasing this model, and now I'm not sure. The title on the fuselage doesn't look quite right. It looks too small.

Well, I just wanted to give some suggestions to the model, didn't have other purpose, but since it's unavailable in this thread, then fine... Sorry, I was blind!

Thank you so much for sharing these awesome pictures, I really appreciate! This model is so gorgeous and realistic, love it!! I hope this reply won't get me into trouble now...

Just curious, no pain no gain, if none of the suggestions are accepted, I have no idea how much the improvements will be... Anyways, understood, will keep that in mind:
Keep the thread clean.These images are for your viewing pleasure, not to use them and change them, for any comparison purposes, “constructive” criticism, slander or bashing, etc,

How difficult is it to understand ?!
How difficult is it to comply with someones request?!
Is it stupidity? I would love to understand. Really, I would, but Im afraid I would have to go down from where Im standing, and that would be such a waste of time.
Its frustrating to say the least. And sad...

My office is on a major access taxiway at one of the largest airports in the world. These aircraft pass by every 10 minutes or so. Although I have been working on them or flying aircraft for 40 years now, I'm sure the toy collectors know more than I do. However based on what I see out the window the model looks pretty damn good. I normally don't stare at a 777 (It's that piece of crap from France, the A380 that blocks my view of the city when it passes by), I don't see anything seriously wrong with the model unless you have been off your medication too long!

i wonder why nobody sees the way-too-large pax doors...and the too high cheatline printing!!!!

the windowline/cheatline should be placed below the cockpit and not above!

Nice model overall. I hope their price range would be in line with JC & Gemini.

Glad I can enjoy the model for what it is rather than worrying about minuscule differences in the pax doors or font size. If I did I don't think I would be into this hobby at all.

taking different angles on pics to compare is useless...

don't misunderstand me, i like the model, but to me the px door issue is not just miniscule ... if the doors are 1/4 times bigger than they should be (comparing them with the fuselage diameter of the model)

I have to say I agree with you. It looks like the pax doors and windows are a little over-sized, say 110% of what they should be. I think that is most of the 'problem' with the nose gear. If you start the prionting at the rear of the fuselage and it is too large, that puts the front pax door too far forward. I hope IF fixes that on future releases, because the mold is REAL WINNER as far as I am concerned, although it looks great as is.

Just a note on ALL passenger windows. The windows should be centered on the MIDDLE of the curve (arc) of the sides of the fuselage. Even if the aircraft has a compound fuselage (2 circles of different sizes when viewed from the front, like the 707), the windows are ALWAYS at the center of the side arc of that section of the fuselage. On real passenger aircraft, this gives the most wall to wall cabin space, critical when 'extra' width is measured in milimeters. There are few exceptions.

Too high of a window height is the #1 thing ALL manufacturers get wrong most of the time. But as long as you use semi-skilled factory workers without a background or interest in aviation to make the silkscreens and stamps, and who operate the presses that print the windows, change is unfortunately unlikely.

Thanks for posting the wonderful photos Rui. IF sure made a comeback with this mold.

Really looking forward to the upcoming KLM 773ER release. I know I am going to get one, the question, which one, IF or JC or even the new released GJ?
