Question GJ/JC 767-200 mold issue? (possible spoiler alert)

Hello all,

Quick question, and again perhaps don't keep reading if you love this mold, but is it just me or does there appear to be kink in the fuselage of the 767-200 mold use by JG/JC?

I'm looking to buy one but based on photos it appears as if it has the same issue as the JG/JC A320 mold forward fuselage, where the upper surface starts to slope downwards towards the nose just forwards of the wings, giving the whole model a tapered look.

If anyone is brave enough, can they please perhaps just hold the straight edge of a ruler on top of the fuselage? this will confirm whether or not my hypothesis is correct and the fuselage is in fact not straight.

Kind regards,

Hopefully I didn't spoil anyone's models

I was curious so I checked my jcwings gimli glider. No slope at all.

Hope that helps!

The ruler is resting on the top of the fuselage.

Doesn't start to slope until the L1 door......

Thanks very much, big help, it must just be some distortion in the photos, I'm looking at an older flightline 200 model but it seems to be the same mold

Cheers

Be careful. Not sure what picture you are looking at, but Flightline 200 may not be the current JCW 767 mold shown above. Flightline 200 appears to be a JCW off brand product ( for maybe unlicensed products?) and may be using the old JCW 767 mold. This older mold had issues with the nose shape, cockpit window printing, and the old JCW 'generic' engine molds.

Google 'Flightline 200' and it will list several forum discussions (including this forum) about their models, including the 767 and 777. Most of the references are about 2010 year models.

Good information, I had not considered that!

Thanks for the information, I had a quick look before and they looked about the same (some photos appeared so show what I may have been seeing on the flightline 200 photos. It may have been an illusion, but only time will tell I suppose as my model is on the way
