BEAUTIFUL MODEL INDEED!!!

Wow...that is really beautiful.

This is a JFox release....not JC Wings. Only L1011 JC Wings makes is the L1011-500. This is the longer L1011 version done by Inflight/AV200/JFox.

The font of the "Super Tristar" title on Engine 2 appears to be different from every picture of the original plane I could find!?

Has anybody noticed this? Or has there been a version with this particular font, too? I hardly can imagine that JFOX/ Inflight got this detail wrong?

Cheers!

Does anybody have information about the font being used for the "Super Tristar" titles? They appear to be way off from the original font?

After all these years, the mould hasn't been improved. The main feature of the triangle APUs? at the front undercarriage should be 3D like the one on GJ mould developed years ago. I wonder there are any nose landing gear lights on this. IF/JFOX is not doing their best to step up for collectors. No doubt they are behind JC Wings. I wish JC would soon give us a Tristar mould like the B744 surprised us in this classic CX color.

I dont wish to cause any fear but the tri star logo on the co pilot side should be at the rear and not front at the number two engine!!!!....

Not only they printed the wrong fonts "SUPER TRISTAR" but the star logo is printed in front instead of the rear for the co pilot side at the number two engine!!!!

See the link photos below why i say not only they printed the wrong fonts "SUPER TRISTAR" but the star logo is printed in front instead of the rear for the co pilot side at the number two engine!!!!!!!

It is really a big disappointment how they messed this bird up so badly.
How can Inflight/JFOX have such a poor QC?

Yes, I agree with you. They didn't even get those stars at the correct position on the right side of engine 2.
Like wonglw3 says, the stars should be at the front on the right hand side of engine 2.
What a mess.
