On the real aircraft, the wingspan of the stabilizer is 19,4 m, yours should be 9,7 mm.

Thats unfortunate, its probably the A340-500/600 H-stab, lazy work from Phoenix there, similar to GJ/JC with the E170/190 H-stab, they didn't bother to make 2 different moulds for the different sized and shaped H-stabs, they just used the one mould

It's a nice looking model and thank you for posting. You should be able to contact a Phoenix distributor to replace the correct horizontal stabilizers for that model. How did that fit in the plastic cradle? Just curious I would like to see the plastic casing
Cheers

You are absolutely right, the stabilizers of the A 340-500 and-600 have a wingspan of 22,59 m >>>> 113 mm.

Maybe a mistake during assembly …

I suggest you to follow Steve's advice, contact your Phoenix distributor.

It look great aside from the h stab. I agree, they probably just accidentally put the a345/6 h stabilizer on. Hopefully this can be sorted out.
