Being very hyper-critical, the nose door looks .00002mm too large. But honestly, this is as close to perfect I think there is (for a diecast 744). Will have to grab one and maybe all three (Thai and Lufthansa) as well.

Superlative effort JC Wings!

Other than the nose gear being a little too long and causing a slightly 'tail low' stance, looks like a great model. Other than the nose gear, JCW really has their 747-400 mold nearly perfect. It would be nice to have that one little detail fixed because the rest of the model is really, really nice.

What are the red 'dots' at the front under neat the cockpit windows close to the front passenger windows, they make some square box, i really don't like them on the model or any other model...

I have this model on display and she sure is a beauty.

I hope they make the United final pre-merger livery on the 747-400.

They are RVSM decals or Reduced Vertical Separation Markers.They are located around pitot tubes,alpha vanes and static ports.The markers are there as a caution that the aircraft skin located within the markers has no damage and is smooth from bumps or irregularities as it may affect instrument readings.It would be more for maintenance personnel when carrying out visual inspections or flight crews performing their external preflight checks.

Normally I would say: "Cut here in emergency". I don't think that is correct in this case? I should have noticed the explanation post. Sorry about that.

Other than the large frontal landing gear strut, the model looks very good.
