Default New Arrival: JCW Lufthansa Star Alliance A343

A model I have been hunting down for a while now has finally arrived home! This aircraft comes into YUL throughout the summer season. It has yet to arrive at AVWorld in Toronto, so I pulled the trigger.

I purchased this model from Collectible Aircraft Wings Australia as it was on sale. The model arrived in Montreal, 3 days later. Express shipping at its finest

Here are some pictures of the latest arrival - gorgeous (in my opinion).

Simply beautiful, a very nice looking A340!.. Sleek and majestic. The Star Alliance livery is one of my favorite...
Do you remember the time when Air Canada had the A340's in their fleet!?...

Thanks for the kind words! It really is such a beautiful model. Hard to believe there was only 180 pieces made and I own one of them. Very happy about that!

I do recall ACA having them in the fleet but I don't recall having spotted them

I've seen them many times at YYZ/CYYZ, wearing the '90's AC livery and the new one as well...I think they were retired from fleet in the late 2008...
I hope at some point, JCW to consider releasing the A343 in the AC '90's livery...Their last AC A345 release is superb...

Perhaps they were at YYZ more often than YUL?

Oh I got the ACA A345 - what a nice model!

Excellent choice, it's a superb model!...
Other than the engines size, I think that there's a considerable difference between the A345 and A343 in fuselage length and wing span!?...

Nice arrival, it would be a nice to addition to the collection. The A343 in 1/200 scale looks completely off. Probably one of the worst moulds out there...

I think the model looks great! As long as I'm happy with it, I really don't mind! At least it has the correct tail!

The engines are seeet on the 45 & 46. So much larger! I think the span is the same and the 45 may be a little longer?

The nose seems a bit off but nothing is perfect.
However, in my opinion I still think that's a great effort in reproducing a diecast A343 variant in this scale.
I think that the plastic version has it's flaws as well...

I can definitely tell which aircraft it is when looking at it!! :P

I do however find the A320 series requires much more attention as it is a bit more "off".
