I think we need more pictures to make a valid judgement.

The front section looks very odd. It doesn't even remotely resemble an A320.

But that's the characteristic of Gemini's A320 mold...

We definitely need more pictures, but we can already see that cowlings are too thick

Even a bad angle or bad photography can't explain away the very un-A320 like nose: Way too sharp, and the front cockpit windows are slanted way too steeply.

I think a good first step would get the nose to look like a real A320, then you can start producing new engine designs. Agree with the comments about the front of the engine needing to be thinner.

Still looks too thick. And what about the nose?

This mound needs to be revisited entirely. It just does not capture the A320 look, and while my purchases make zero difference to this hobby, I can't justify spending hard earned money on that mould

Thanks for your inputs, but just like the 757, JCW can't touch the A320 because they don't own the mould.

Well then why not reinvest into another mould? The A320 family is one of the most common aircraft seen these days, and surely the vast amount of liveries can justify the cost of a new mould. Many people have the same feeling as I do, that this mould just looks off.

That's my biggest gripe with this mould, looks like a malnutrition A320

Sorry, I visit here may be once or twice each month, so only saw your question today. JC made models for GJ, if JC build a new 320, what will GJ think? They can't compete with each other.

I apologize if I am wrong, would this mean that we will never see a reworked A 340-300 ?

Landing gear, wing flex, engine nacelles ?

JCW own 50% of A340 1/200, what I know is they fixed the wings and engines, also new productions come with removable L/G.

Make the 50% you can do 90% accurate

IF200 A340-300 would be the better choice had it not been for their tall tail issue.
