It is really hard to tell from these pictures. The CX model looks like the nose and cockpit window printing is off (maybe a pic of a Phoenix 1/400 scale model?).

I have the Eagle (Phoenix) Eva Air 'Ribbon' model and the engines on the Turkish definitely look bigger that on my model, and better. I would have to see more pics, but from this one picture, the engines look nice.

Maybe these pictures will help? Saw them from Phoenix(Eagle)'s website.

The engines are definitely bigger than the Eagle model that I have. It looks like they may have tweaked the nose a bit. The nose on the Turkish model looks nice. So do the engines!

I had a chance to see this model in person and I wasn't terribly impressed.

First of all, the cockpit windows are crooked. They look just like the pic above, slanting downwards on the right side. I only looked at 2 models at the shop, but both were the same as the pic above so it looks like it is a production error to me rather than a 'one off' mistake.

It is hard to tell if the Turkish Airlines model has a new engine mold or not. I think it is just the position of the camera. My guess is not. I compared it to the Cathay Pacific 777-300ER which the shop also had and both engines looked the same size and both of those engines also looked the same size as my Eva "ribbon" model at home. I just think it is the angle of the picture and not anything new with the mold. The engine shape is ok, they are just too small. I hope Phoenix (Eagle) didn't waste money on a new mold, because if they did, there is not much if any improvement.

Has anyone got the 1/200 China Airlines B777-300ER yet? I am still undecided which one I should get between the JC Wings and Phoenix(Eagle).

Saw this model today in person and liked it until I saw the landing gear. That was a deal breaker for us

The rubber tires on Phoenix 777s come off the rims easily, and you can paint the rims to get rim of the 'silver rim' syndrome if you really like one of the Phoenix 777s.

The tires and wheels we saw on the model were in rough shape, the wheel looked like half of it was missing and the overall look was to put it bluntly, matchbox like
