yep, i am staying away from it. 25 euro price is way too low to be legit. also clicking around the site shows price for a lot of other items too low also.

seller put up another one. If you want one, need to get it ASAP. This is a discontinued model. I haven't seen it sold anywhere else anymore. And this seller price is actually very reasonable. I got a few more stuffs from him when i got my a330-800

wow, that one is now sold too. Haven't seen seller list another one again yet. Wonder if he still got anymore. But that's exactly how it goes for an out of production model i guess esp at very reasonable price. I bet at that price he could sell another whole lot if he wants.

Well, i guess if you want one of these very hard to come by out of production model, you might need to look harder now if he's really out of it....

Did you already get one? If not, i recommend get two...lol.. once this seller is out, i think we will really see the end of any supply of this model. i have not been able to find anyone else selling this out of production model. I guess you cant blame skymarks for stop making the model given that there is only like 14 total a330-800 sold with no delivery yet while -900 has sold well over 300.

I sure like to see a freighter variant....

Whoever else doesnt have this yet, it's highly recommended you get yours before this seller is out. His price for it is very reasonable for an out of production model. i should have mine in a day or two, fast shipping in about 1.5 wk from asia...

So I got my a330-800 in the mail. Very interesting....

It turn out that the a330-800 from the ebay seller is a risesoon model which comes with landing gears. and it looks like the gear bays are compatible with that of hogan a330 landing gears..

The one from skymarks do NOT have landing gears so it's smooth finish. That leaves us with no option to be able to put in any gears.

So definitely, the best ver of the two is obviously the risesoon one from the ebay seller. Here's the link again if you want one and better get it FAST:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-200-Kuwai...o/264756193374

Beside the fact that one is gear down and the other is gear up with smooth fuselage, there is no difference in the overall painted details. even the standSs look identical

Sadly there doesn't seem to be a 1/200 a330-900 with gear down?

1/200 A340-200, DC-8, A340-600. The South African A340-600 is always a crowd pleaser!

Interesting that the Skymarks version doesn't have landing gears, given Skymarks is made by Risesoon. I always thought the models were identical except Skymarks models simply lacked printed/painted details. There's also a "high detail" version of some Risesoon models. I used to buy Risesoon models directly from them, and sometimes from an eBay seller who carried/carries a lot of Risesoon models. Can't recall his member name at the moment - dreamflyer787...something like that.

Looks like the Risesoon version of the model has painted intakes but the exhausts are unpainted. When I ordered from Risesoon I would often opt to have them send me a set of painted exhausts and on 747 models, a set of painted/marked wings if the models I was buying were low-detailed versions. The good ol' days of collecting.

I am sure the diecast manufacturers are well and truly past the R & D tooling UP of the A330-XXX. In fact, I am sure early production runs have been made and pending general release.

I could be wrong, but he doesn't appear to collect diecast metal models, going by this and previous posts.

i do both diecast and plastic. .. some models you just can't find them in diecast.

1/200 a330-800/900 are not available in diecast. also other like 767-400

I now had to go back and try to see about getting a risesoon a350-1000. the skymarks one i have also got no landing gears ;(.

Looks like risesoon versions are better than skymarks in that for the 1/200 risesoon almost always have landing gears whereas skymarks don't for some of them? ;(

Risesoon will almost always be better for details. I'm still surprised some 1:200 scale Skymarks models don't have gear. I know 1:130 scale Skymarks models don't. Anyway, congrats and it's a lovely livery.

Yep, the fact that the risesoon has the gears and holes for them mean you can mod and remove them and even replace them with better sets from hogan as what i am seeing is that there is good compatibility on a few i have. Those smooth body skymarks really sucks now that i know there seems to be a corresponding version of risesoon with gears for every smooth body skymarks. Sucks that risesoon are harder to find.
