Not sure if I want those 2 models in my collection yet. I am still thinking why manufactures take the advantage to make money (and models) of airplanes that was involved in loss of human life.

Aside from the ethical question for me of getting a model of an aircraft whose crash resulted in great loss of life, the mold itself, and particularly the nose, is really showing its age and needs to be updated.

My main complaint is the height of the centerpoint of the nose, and the resulting high cheatline, passenger windows and doors because of it. Same criticism goes for JCW's 777-300ER model too.

It is easy to see on this model because the bottom of the cheatline is centered on the nose. Best place to look to get a good idea of how high the cheatline is printed is at the leading edge of the wing. The 1:1 is much lower, almost touching the top of the wing while the model has a space here because of the high cheatline. The real visual problem for me is the high nose doesn't leave enough room to print the cockpit windows larrge enough, and gives the mold an unprototypical 'pug nose' appearance.

Come on JCW, the rest of the mold is good enough to upgrade the nose area (and maybe even add some more details to the tail too). A slight reduction in the size of the engines and an engine pylon revision would make the 777 molds almost perfect IMHO.

I always loved this livery of Malaysia Airlines but i wish JC Wings could have given us collectors a third option of a registration of one that didn't crash or was involved in a major incident...

Coming soon in December B777-200ER Malaysia Airlines 9M-MRA.

Story behind this aircraft.
Boeing continued advancing the design of the 777 and on September 3, 1996 rolled out its first 777-200/ER aircraft. On October 7, 1996 the 777-200/ER made its first flight. Less than a year later April 1, 1997 Boeing flew a 777-2H6/ER (9M-MRA) in Malaysian Airline colors non-stop 12,457 miles from Boeing Field in Seattle eastward to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 21H 23M. This broke the "Great Circle Distance Without Landing" record for an
airliner. Continuing the great circle circumnavigation round-the-world returning to Boeing Field, this aircraft set a new world speed record for the fastest round-the-world flight by a commercial airliner. Total flight time round-the-world was 41H 59M over a distance of 23,210 miles.

Malaysian Airlines named this round-the-world aircraft its "Super Ranger." It carries a special logo on the outside of its cockpit.

Can't complain about this model, it is quite nice and well made. Just need to work on QC as im missing an antennae. I'm definitely looking forward to 9M-MRA, hopefully some US retailers pick up the news.

Titanic is fine to me because it was more than 100 years ago so... We have not seen any actual pics of the event and the corpses.

Another one is coming, sir: 9M-MRA

In the future, any manufacturers would like to commissioned another tragic model... please wait for 100 years.
