Default JC Wings Request: A340-500/600

JC Wings has a great A345/6 mould, and I'm really quite surprised there haven't been more releases of A340's. For my collection, I would love to see some Etihad, Qatar, Thai and Azerbaijan quads. Anyone else?

Etihad A340-500


Etihad A340-600


Qatar Amiri Flight A340-500


Qatar A340-600


Thai A340-500


Thai A340-600


Azerbaijan A340-500


Azerbaijan Gov A340-600


Kuwait A340-500

To see Virgin Atlantic in this old school livery would be nice!

That Qatar is stunning and beautiful. What an elegant plane the A340 is.

I bought a a340-600 even though my rules only allow KLM (and subs) planes... because I like it. As a FF who has flown a lot... I have never set foot on a A340 in my life.. I have flown pretty much any other plane (Western and Soviet!). The Irony,..

I agree with Jan. On the A340-500, while Phoenix have smashed a few out, JCW/GJ tooling has rarely been used. GJ have released only one. It's A340-500 Emirates A6-ERE G2UAE383 and that's it. JCW who knows, but I believe there was a Singapore Airlines A340-541 "Leadership" and a Air Canada white livery but plenty more to do agree with Cathay & Singapore colours and Thai Airways Kings anniversary HS-TLA and Virgin Atlantic. A340-500 served Sydney international for many carriers like Thai Singapore, Qatar & Emirates very well. I also love the Azerbaijan. The A340-600 I have the JCW Etihad F1 A340-642 A6-EHJ and while it's a beauty, heaps more opportunity to use the A340-600 tooling again

I had to go a bit nuts with all 3 manufactures. 4 DLH A346s, 1 VA A346 (Thank You), 1 Iberia A346, 2 SA A346s (Star Alliance and current livery), House Colors A346, A345, Singapore A345 (with the corpse locker), Air Canada delivery colors A345.

I hope to see the return of some of the grounded DLH A346s. Very cool airplane.

Problem with Gemini is that they are inconsistent with their quality. The EK A345 they released had the entire window line printed too high, which totally ruined the entire model. I've found JCW to be more consistent in that regard as well as more affordable.

I'm surprised these haven't been produced yet! Popular airline/fleet combo for collectors!

Both JCW and GJ A345s have window lines too high. The A346 looks very good.
