I'm guessing both the LH 744 and FedEx MD-11 will both be big winners!

Nice releases! GREAT to see the re release of the FedEx MD11!!! KLM A330 also very nice in the new colors. Very curious how Gemini's A310 turns out..
Thanks for posting Crownvic.

My thoughts exactly! Missed out on the FedaEx the last time around; wont let that happen again. The Lufthansa is also a must for me as its one of my few airlines I try to have one of each.

I would buy the A310 but the 1:400 version was a Total disappointment. The wings totally down and the blue ball was really offset

It's interesting that they chose to model one of the converted from passenger MD-11s rather than a purpose built freighter version like the prior release. The prototype has all of the windows still visible even though they're no longer see through.

Looking forward to this. Hoping every single re-release has a different registration number as well.

I got the numbers mixed up, i meant to say the KLM A330..

But to bad KLM never operated the A340 as well, the Delft blue would look so cool on the A340-600..

Several manufacturers seem to have problems in printing cheatlines/windowlines and px doors on the correct level - on common moulds (with thousands of pics of the real thing), why?

Nose looks identical to InFlight. And that's not bad. It's just the way the Airbus looks. That's good news because we now have two big manufacturers offering a wide variety to choose from. Great job GJ and IF.

I am looking at the issues J.P. brought up in my thread "Photos of Inflight 200 A310"
Note that Inflight will be touching up the A310 mould, so this comparrison is with the V 1.0, with only one photo of the GJ so far.

#1 The underside of the PW engines are flat, as they should be on the GJ, it's curved on the IF
#2 The window line goes up near the tail section, looks as though both need a bit more
#3 Window lines, Pan Am titles & emergency door are all to high of IF. Window line and emergency door is much lower, Pan Am titles are maybe even a tad to low on GJ
#4 The nose looks good on the GJ, it's just wrong on the IF.

In my opinion the GJ is vastly superior, the minor issues are not noticeable unless you pull out your dacrometer. Let's see how the IF V2.0 turns out.

you must have taken 1 too many in the eyes, that nose doesn't look a thing like the inflight version.

It looks good !

I like the engine nacelles.

To make a fair comparison we need more pictures of both models, GJ and IF.

Nice bait. Just thought I'd lend an opinion (which I'm entitled to). What's funny is that this whole thread is moot because the A310 is not in my collection criteria. Lol

I have the Pan Am A310 on pre-order. The mould, of course, is far superior to the Hobby Monster version. The only thing that I noticed is the blue ball logo on the tail is a little low, and too small. When PA went to the billboard livery, the logo was enlarged on the tail.

They should pay a little more attention to the shape of the lower half of the wingtip fence. Furthermore, the cabin windows should go upwards a little more towards the rear of the fuselage (perspective of this single photo might not represent the actual angle). Otherwise, it looks nice overall. Cannot say anything about other details, haven't seen it in person yet.

Overall it looks pretty good. better in my opinion than the current Inflight version.
Still I think, that the passenger windows on the Gemini could be a bit larger and the tail appears to be too "thin" (chord length).
But overall I think I will go for it.
what do the others think?

Did you notice that the gj version has winglets and the if has not? And the Pan Am text on the fuselage is different too. Nice that arcunia has both models photographed the same.. good comparison.

Huh? The G200 represents the A310-300, thus the wingtip fences.

The IF200 is the medium range -200 version.

The comparo side by sides shows even more how bad and bungled the IF mold is. Engines too low, weird pylons, wrong shape nose...
The G200 is magnitude more realistic.
