Bonjour …

Be careful with the Phoenix A 330, check out the thread A 330 Air Seychelles.
The stabilizer is wrong, is it a mistake during the assembly, are they all the same ?

I have no Phoenix model, I can't tell.

Oui j'ai vu le 330 de Seychelles.... C'est pour ça que je pose la question !
Yes, I saw the Seychelles 330, so that's why I'm asking !

Thanks JP

In my opinion, the Phoenix A330 is the best A330 available BY FAR. The A330s that Gemini and JC are putting out are absolute garbage. Phoenix seems to have gotten the nose and cockpit section spot on. I'm looking forward to the Air Caraibes.

Hi there
There is nothing wrong with Phoenix / Eagle mould at all. I like it and here are a few
of the models that I have (Phoenix are on the upper shelf)













Nose to nose


Nose to nose again you can make your own mind up . I am happy with everything I own in A330's

Aussie,

Do all of your PHX200 A330s have nose gear like the Gulf model? Ouch.
Wheels look ok, but the angle is off a tad.

Aussiejets, great comparison shots of the GJ/JC and Phoenix nose sections. I think it's clear from these pics that Phoenix has pretty much nailed the nose and cockpit.

Phoenix has the best nose and cockpit printing by a mile! When comparing the other Phoenix models, it looks like the nose gear on the Gulf Air is the only one that is a little bent.

I have the LH A340-600 for this exact reason. Nose and cockpit window printing looks much better than the JCW/GJ versions.

The concern of LFST2305 was more about the size of the stabilizer …

Fine, then someone needs to make the Aer Lingus A330-300 in the current livery NOW! If it's the Phoenix mold, that would be great. Just do it already!!!

I'll be flying to your wonderful country in May, of course, on an Aer Lingus A330-300. This model is so overdue and should sell very well.

The nose is better on PHX mold but their wings are totally wrong, you can see the significant deviation at the wing root's leading/trailing edge
