Default A Nice Birthday Gift From My Partner

As it was my Birthday yesterday, my partner gave me some money to purchase a model that I had on pre order, so today I Purchased this beauty an A380-841 reg JA383A in the ANA All Nippon Airways bright orange livery "Ka La" one of three they have ordered, this one being No/3 the model is made by JC Wings, and has the usual magnetic landing gear, the detail is quite good, but they have missed out the Airbus A380 titles on the front near the star Alliance title, but well pleased with it and it looks nice with my other A380's

Thumbs down Re: A Nice Birthday Gift From My Partner

Well, the problem with these ANA A380 JCWINGS releases is, that they came out BEFORE their 1:1 versions

And therefore they have problems to fix their real look

Best example is their first blue ANA A380 which has a complete wrong color (kind of violett) in the front

This is very sad as I really would like to add this tripple to my collection but with such big mistakes these are fantasy models for me...

Crazy cool! I thought there was only one color. Glad to read that there are 3 colors in ANA's fleet. It would be cool to see this plane sitting next to SWA's Shamu One.

The ANA is the last 380 I would like to have in my collection, preferably the blue one. Unfortunately, as mentioned, they were too quick to release the 1/200 version and therefore does not represent the 1/1 aircraft. Hopefully we see correct(ed) versions....

Yes, the orange is 'the business'! Happy b-day, as well.

My partner hasn’t bought me squat! But she does bring in the boxes from the front porch, and hasn’t thrown any models in a fit of rage (even though she has admitted to thinking about it - once, hahaha.

If the time ever comes, I’ll tell her exactly which ones she can throw.... —> that Inflight 727 over there, dear... let that one fly!).. A little bit of warm blood within these doors
