I hope IF will also do the same for MAS 772... BUT with different reg no. please.

Sorry for overeact, personally i find it creepy to own the MRD given by the gory ending of actual plane (still have nightmares on that, yes)

Perhaps I'll consider the MRO instead.

Exactly. I can't do a casual 'Malaysia 777' on google anymore, not with those ghastly gory image still slapped right into yer face.

Is it too late, telling JC to change the reg. no?

Maybe they are hoping for clean sweep, like what GJ 1:400 & Flightline200 version has turned into.

In here, maybe not cuz most of us here, were busy pestering the manufacturer to fullfill for each criteria needs lol

But you will see the hype on ebay: Asking Prices.

I think the two MAS B772 are special order from one retailer, that's why...

Couldn't agree with you more...come one JC! There must surely be a plan to release the regular livery soon?

Usually they do, and any that are out there it's because the accident occurred after the release of the model.

There was a model a while back that was a work in progress (sorry, can't remember the airline) and got cancelled because the real plane was in an accident.

When i read your reply Robert, i assume you're joking about these "so called" list prices?
If not.... i think your reply is very naive

I believe what JC gave us 15 years after crash of SQ006 at TPE has very little in common with what Herpa was supposedly to already have had manufactured (pre incident) but subsequently had them destroyed (post incident)
Same goes for the JFox versions too I reckon

Well I hope the 500+ corpses on those novelty Malaysia 777s will bring in the profits, JC Wings is obviously expecting.

I think I'll pass both of JCW version (those regs gave me the creeps)!

Will wait for IF JFOX version. They have proved they got the livery artwork 100% spot on, based on the 744 standard livery they've done last year.

am i missing something here? you'll pass on jcw version because the regos give you the creeps... but you're waiting for the if/jfox version because the artwork is 100% spot on? so the if/jfox mh 772s will have different regos, you reckon?

You forgot about the 230 souls on board TWA Flight 800 which IF200 has made an exact model of the aircraft with an item No. exactly the same as the flight No.

Err.. lets just hope so.

I'm sure IF spy lurking around here for feedback & tips, does it?

For example, IF had to re-introduced jeweled lights on 747 wings when JCW proved that they can make superior jumbos.

Yes, the artwork (livery, color, logo) that IF have done for MAS standard 744, is simply perfect. So they will have no problem to continue on 772 as well.

Sorry to JCites. Up until now, JCW execution for all MAS models has been all along flawed.

- A380 (wrong color)
- Hibiscus (distorted logo, distorted 'malaysia' font and again sorry, the mold used during that time was 'not there' yet compared to IF. But they have improved since Qantas jumbos)

Just my personal anal observation. Nothing to do with hate. I like & admire JC. I want to own some those superb jumbos. But their take on MAS models is... dissapointing

While IF has done various take on MAS, but I'm deeply satisfied with the outcome. Accurate color, no distorted logo/brandings detected.

I need to look into the flaws you mentioned before I can further discuss with you. But I think you may make your judgement after the two new MH 777-200ER models have come out.

I won't say I am a "JCites" given that I have owned over 60 IF200 models at home.

As far as I am aware, there is a 3rd JC release MAS 777 -MRA 'Super Ranger' with the cockpit markings etc.

I never knew there was a JC release for the BA VictoRIOus 747 though.
