Is there any chance we will see an improved A330 mould soon? To be honest, the current one is not very good. The engines are wrong (not too far off though), the nose and cockpit shape is absolutely awful, and the landing gear are not removable. I would have a hard time passing up this model if it weren't for the awful nose on these models. I collect anything Delta and had to pass on the recent A330-300 because the nose looked so bad.

Good to see no printed radome! That does look much better, without.

Yeah, that's a good point you made but I say if you don't like this Etihad A330 than go for the Etihad B777-300, it looks much nicer!!

Nice looking livery, but the mold looks like it has a few problem areas.

JCW seems to have a 'nose problem' lately. As on several molds, the center point of the nose looks too high, giving the top of the nose and cockpit area a 'squeezed' look.

And on a few molds, JCW has an engine shape problem too. Although minor, this one is unfortunately not an exception.

An A340-500 and A340-600 in the OC to go with this one would be AWESOME!!!

It's funny...just a few years ago..NO Etihad models available at all! Now...they are coming left and right. Keep them coming JC!!!

The non-detachable gear on the A330-340-200/300 doesn't bother me at all. I never take the gears off.

I sure hope so. The nose and cockpit printing really needs some work.

The center point of the nose should be lower, and the cockpit windows slightly larger, just like their 777 mold. Just trying to help.

Don't forget the engines. The rear of the Rolls Royce engine mold needs some attention too. But JCW had heard that before also.

I don't think they are making any revisions to this one....it's already done, box printed etc.... Or that's what Tonka said on a different thread.

That's why I'm asking as to why we haven't seen it announced?

I'd prefer to have this one they way it is now.
