Default JCW SIA A359 "flaps down" review

first of: JC did a fantastic job on this model !
compared to the IF counterpart THIS is the definate winner - the detail on the slats and flaps are excellent - though i wished they would have carved the flaps on the wings like they did with the horizontal stabs (see pics 7 and 8). JC/GJ once again sets new standards concerning accuracy and detail.

just one second point: please place the windowline (incl. cockpit and paxdoors) 1 or 2 mm lower similar to the GJ mould (see also distance between wingroot and SIA cheatline in the attached pic). apart from that small issue it is an excellent model and really worth the money!

I'm still not sure. I would need to see some close ups of the flaps and slats before I make up my mind buy either the JCW or the Inflight model. And I would be concerned that the extra pieces (including the elevators and rudder if the move) are just extra pieces that could arrive bent or break off later.

The one thing I think I did notice is the ailerons are not deflected downward as they should be with the flaps extended on a fly-by-wire transport category aircraft.

they are, but maybe the pics do not show it clear enough. i'll post some pics later.
and for the extra parts you mentioned i would give the advice: "don't move them" - if at all they might move 1/100th of a mm - at least on my model.

I have this model too, really fantastic details and finish. I could live with the white engines and gears. As for the movable stabs, my port side one can move more than the one on starboard side. I guess its because of the tight fit. The rudder can also move but I wouldn't recommend it.

I do not like the colors being wrong, specially the white gear, and still do not like the JC A350 nose section simply not reproducing the real planes face. JC can do much better. Thanks for sharing your nice photos of a very nice plane, I´m waiting for the first photos of upcoming A350 Cathay ....... yes!

The problem with working parts is: a. they don't work right or one side works better than the other side. b. they may break so you dare not use them c. they look funny if some control surfaces move and the others don't creating a visual difference.

I think all of the control surfaces should move and look good while doing it or none of them should move. That being said,, my personal 'Holy Grail' is retractable landing gear done well, but I think this is well beyond current production and quality control limits. Everyone seems to have a hard time just getting regular landing gear right.

Do the inflight and phoenix versions also have white engines?

Maybe following Disney's lead, it looks like Singapore Airlines is pulling the plug on licensing models. If true, it looks like this model will be affected

How would it be affected it if the model has already been produced and shipped out all over the world?

I am hoping for the Lufthansa A350 as "flaps down" model.
Do you think, this will happen?

Very sorry arcunia.nl.

I forgot to check your store.
I should have not put comment like that.

I might create confusion for all members who saw my post although this model is available in your store.

I deeply apology for you and all members.

now to the aileron: they are in approach position, but not in the same angle as the flaps ....no big deal for me.
(sorry for the bad pic quality)

what affects me more is the fact that the axles on the mlg are a little too long...

I think they drop less than the flaps.

You are right, another picture with the flaps in "intermediate" setting.

Maybe the flaps are in a "takeoff" configuration?
