So much potential with this mould, just wish they'd modify the pylons and height if the main gear.

Not being picky, beside the missing Skyteam logo on the 1st doorm,the Boeing 777-300ER on the right hand side on the front of the fuselage is not aligned in straight line.

Despite a nice mould that I would agree, is it too difficult to rush to the release before checking all the minor details?

I could pick so many minor printing details on every J-Fox release which it can clearly be avoided.

Not that i don't like this Inflight version but i'm quite happy with my Gemini 200 AF 777-300 ER version...

I really like the Inflight 777-300ER mold, but I do agree there could be a minor upgrade to the gear. I would like to see the main landing gear upgraded to include the hydrolic cylinder on the front of the main gear assembly included, and a little more accurate detail added. I think the length of the gear looks just fine with prototypical ground clearance for the engines. Most of the 777-300ERs that I have seen do not sit nose low unless the nose oelo strut is under inflated, or they are under hard braking.

I think the current front of the engine pylon is quite good. It is shaped pretty well and wide like the real thing, but I do agree the the rear of the pylon where it meets the wing could be tapered a little better.

Overall, with all things considered, the Inflight mold is still my preferred 777-300ER mold. And I would love to get this model, flaws and all.

I bought this Triple7 too and unpacked it today... I love it. It's a very beautiful model. Airliners are not my first collection field, but meanwhile i own some of them. This will be not my last... They looks great between the 1:72 fighters

Many greets, Tobias
