Default Phoenix Swiss "San Francisco" A340

Have any of you seen photos of this model? I just looked on evilBay and noticed two closed auctions, but each auction only had one photo. I've not seen it for sale on the usual retailer websites. Just wondering if it is any good.

Thank you for the photos!!! Looks like I'll have to contact my favorite retailer to see if he plans to get it in. I remember seeing it listed on his website before, but it is no longer there.

Should know Saturday if the supplier happens to have an extra one, but it's less than a 50/50 chance. Unfortunately the Eagle/Phx 1:200 models do not sell well enough to keep extras of.

I agree with Ruy. I think this is the first metal A340/330 with a good nose section.

I've never known Phoenix to alter a mould....so don't expect that to happen.

Cool Re: Phoenix Swiss "San Francisco" A340

Wowy-kazowy!!! That is an Airbus, alright. Kudos to Phoenix. As others have noted, what super landing gear detail as well. Now, how's about an Air France one for me, eh??

The style of the Eagle A340 gears and wheels are basically the same as their 777s. I dont see any difference.

The 777 main landing gear look like the wheels are mounted on a solid block instead of an axle, just like the Phoenix 1/400 777s. These landing gear look much better with better strut detail and axle detail. The difference if pretty obvious if you take the time to compare the two.
