PROBABLY because this was made in IFs new factory, like the EVA. the varig's and old klm 742 etc were NOT! I also suspect they have more control on QC!

Well, it's better than that old KLM 742, but still high, take a look at the former IF742, taking reference of the door nearest to the wing root, and you know what I mean....



Look at how close the door is to the wing root on the kiwi744



One more thing, the radar dome looks real small cone on the klm744.....comparing with the above kiwi744, pushed in by the first pax window?



Two things for sure, the 744 brow is hell better than JC. Honestly, at this point in time, I'm not convinced of the current JC 744 brow yet. Until I seen improvement, beyond tropical, I won't be getting any further JC744. And just like Rui, I prefer fixed gears!!!!!

For now, I concentrate on getting L1011, 773, 772, 727, A380, A330...all these are really killing the pocket money per month!!!!!!!

We got to push these two makers, namely IF and JC to the limits!!!!!!!!

Go for the accuracy....minimize any possibilities of mistakes happening by putting levels of QC in !!!!! It's a matter of want check or don't want to check on the sample model before mass production.....

Anyway, above are my personal comments. Don't bother to agree if you are not with me....

No, ALL IF's 747s are made in the same factory since 2014. All factories seems to have the same problem, fluctuation of QC control!

Finally, something worth of reading! Finally, "someone" admits it!

Matthew 8:26
And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.


Faith is a many splendorous thing. It is part of humankind and an important tool to help us go through life...i guess it also works with models.
