Default IF200 VIETNAM AIRLINES A350 ...pics!

Beautiful colour , but tricky to the eye, again I suggest you see one in person, as the colour does vary in these pictures.
Vandan already did a great job depicting this one, so bear with me if I'm repeating the subject here.
I have emailed IF200 and they kindly replied that they were aware of the wing issue, with missing details and that these will be incorporated in future releases plus other details, they didnt say ... I can see they have the wheel hubs/rims painted now, so its a change !
enjoy!

Great color, this green. Very nicely done, I like the nose shot its like the real thing, very well done! The black cockpit windows make the A350 look so avantgarde! very cool model and livery!

I was expecting a few experts to bash this one too, but I guess they are all busy with other models these days!
A very quiet thread indeed...

i think the model is absolutely beautiful! the face of the plane is currently hands down the most accurate out of all the a350 releases right now.

You're right, I don't see any mistake on this model, even though the front gear should be better...

Very nice! I especially love everything about the wings, engines included. As always thank you for the detailed photographs!

Gears and hubs look a lot better painted compared to the silver.

IF200 finally follows JC/GJ to paint the silver wheel hubs into white/ grey on their A350, which is an improvement. But the wheels hubs are still silver on their 747s.

The main gear still doesn't represent the true wide track design of the A350.

You are correct. Also the IF200 A350 wheel(wheel hub+tyre) is still too large. JC/GJ has done a good job on the A350 main gear.

True but they have made a bit of a hash of the cockpit windows and nose shape

Beautiful aircraft, have seen her taxiing here lately. On the green, I have to say it is very difficult to pin down - even to describe the color. Overall it looks like a beautiful model.

This is about the inaccuracies and other comments associated with the IF A350 not dead horses. Please stay on topic.

Are you another moderator?!
I wish the moderators would come forward and introduce themselves to the collectors here. That would be a nice thing to do.
And have under their avatars the words MODERATOR, too.

As I see it, when so much has been said and written and trust me, a lot has been said and written about this one, when the same people go back to the same issues and innacuracies everytime I post pics of every IF A350 release, yes, its a Dead Horse Beating !

Well, Simon, then would you please post some pictures of the GJ release for those interested in purchasing the GJ ?
As you say mate, its all down to personal preference.
Thanks,

Simon, all I do is using my Lumix camera, outside in the balcony, either under direct sunlight or not, open them in photoshop to resize and crop ( NO manipulation whatsoever as mentioned before!) add my signature save them and upload them. Some are blurred, too...
I dont have the time to go with elaborate photos, etc....
whatever pics you post, its a kind gesture and a "service" really to all those who would like to have a glimpse of this particular model, or any other model, helping members to decide.

It's pretty- but would be great if flaps and slats were adjustable. That would put this one over the top of all 1/200 diecast.

Herb, i share your ideas! But until they do all those things, at least we have an accurate 350 nose, which is my personal preference.

That livery will look much much better on a Dreamliner

Oh, watch out....IF A350 thread / Dreamliner = off topic!
But yes, it does look good on the Dreamliner, have you seen that beautiful footage by Boeing yet?! Just like they did last year at Farnborough, they now did it at Le Bourget, with a ...Vietnam B787!

Oh please be my guest....you were talking planes, which is our favorite theme still, around here, as collectors. And your words sounded innocent and sincere, which is something I still appreciate, in every aspect of my life.
I was just being sarcastic, playing the b****!
