Default Boeing 777-300ER ANA Star Wars BB-8

Another excellent 1:200 effort by JC in faithfully reproducing this fun livery. No issues in printing accuracy and placement of artwork. I cannot wait for the Boeing 777-200ER 3-CPO if it is ever made. Highly recommended.

It is a beautiful model. I have little doubt,C-3PO will be made in diecast 200 and 400 scale. I believe the inaugural flight for Star Wars #4 is March 21. Defiantly in for paint as we speak.

Does this model have over wing exit markings? It's hard to tell from the pics. If so, how do they line up with the over-wing doors? I've heard that was an issue with this model, but it is hard to find pics of that particular area.

Issue with this model? Sez who? That would be Inflight's attempt that got it wrong with the over-wing markings. If you read above, this is not Inflight.

I think the picture speaks for itself. No other comment necessary.

BTW, that is exactly what I was referring to. But you are right on one thing. The IF's exit paths alignment is worse. Incidentally, although not as bad, that would still be an issue with the artwork in my book.

Do you have a picture of a real 777 wing showing the correct position of the exit markings?

This should help. The model looks closer than I though it would be. Wonder if the real aircraft has corroguard on the upper wing surfaces too. Looks like ANA has it on both some -300 and -300ER models.

No corroguard on JA789A, and can't tell if the yellow ice detection square, unique to ANA aircraft, on the runway alignment stripe is there. Not sure from the angle of the pictures. Looks like the exit markings are actually pretty good. Both pictures are of JA789A.

Thank you. Yes helps. The markings might be off just a hair. But not nearly as bad as some of the prior photos. And yes the yellow ice markings are on the model. I have this one in my hand.
