Default JFOX British Airways Landor - Paint Cracking?

Hi all,

I am looking to buy some of the JFOX BA Landor releases. Has anyone had any issues with these paint cracking? I once owned the Inflight 200 L-1011 and that had the issues. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Thanks ... Ben

mine is fine. it was mainly the original inflight 747-400 landor that had the big problems. the l1011 to a lesser extent.

Thanks, are the colours on the newer release accurate in relation to the older releases, as on photos I've seen the grey seems slightly too light, but that could lighting...

yes, the grey is lighter as its the 'interim' scheme. check out my picture thread here. still waiting for a replacement landor of original.

I own both of the newer JFOX BA Landor 747-200 & 400 and both models is fine... i don't own the IF 200 BA L-1011 but instead i have the original IF 200 BA Landor DC-10 and it's fine too!

Thanks for the reply, I'm glad to hear that as I've just purchased the original DC-10 Landor. I thought I'd go for the original as the aircraft's name is Epping Forest, where I live!

I had the original DC-10 and it was cracked. I bought it that way so I don't k is when it had happened. However, they weren't noticeable unless you put light directly over it. With that being said, the grey was very dark.

I also had the Jfox 747-200 at one point but have since sold it. There were no issues.
