Looks like these are being released as Inflight 200 models per Waffle newsletter.
Will there be any difference between the two brands?

Hmm yea, it is good to see Aviation 200 back indeed, I have a China Airline B737-809 from this brand with the Lavender Livery B-18610 that being

Yet I hope they will do some classic B747 liveries as well as new ones, more variety is always welcome for that part.

As their molds go, are they the same of JC Wings or that of Inflight 200?
Unless they have their own methods?

Always wondered this.

I guess they have a mould sharing Agreement with IF200 - at least their 747s and 737s look Pretty similar.

AV200 uses the exact same moulds as InFlight200.

IS AV400 and AV200 both other sub-brand names for Inflight200? Why not just have the AV200 as Inflight200 then?? Do not see why they give themselves so many names?????

I would rather see the China Southern 777-200 or Cargo version because Inflight 200 already made the China Southern 777-300 ER..

My understanding is as follows....

There are the big brands... like Gemini and Inflight. They work with a factory in China to commission the moulds which can be $$$. They have a right to those moulds and release models on those moulds like normal.

Then there are third parties who may work with the brand and/or the factory to release different models. For example, I think this is the set up used by JC Wings using Gemini's molds. JC wings commissions the models from the factory on Gemini's molds. I'm assuming everyone gets a cut.

Then there are white box type models released by the big brands with zero branding because of licensing issues. (Inflight's Blue Box methinks?)

Then there are factories that may use the molds and release stuff under their own brand or make their own molds. (Phoenix?)

It's all a giant cluster f--k.
