Default JC Wings EasyJet A320neo

Hi all,

Have just taken delivery of G-UZHA, one of the much anticipated JC Wings 1/200 EasyJet models, and I have to say from my example alone I am far from impressed...

1. The shade of orange, although hard to see in the photos taken on my phone is way to dark.

2. There is a very pronounced line that runs along and over the top of the orange part of the upper fuselage

3. Overall the quality of the graphics is very poor, the L2 door looks to be off at an angle and the main EasyJet titles are also poor.

Suffice to say I’m relatively unimpressed by the quality of this one, I’m expecting her sister ship G-EZOM to arrive in a couple of days and I’ve also got OE-IVA reserved for when JC bothers themselves to release it, will be interested to see if they also suffer the same fairly major flaws.

Well I’d love to say having taken delivery of G-EZOM this morning it’s better but it really isn’t, still carries the same floors as G-UZHA, wrong colour orange, poor graphics etc but it also came with a bonus loose nose gear 🙄

Look for the magnet in the box. It will be in there somewhere. If not, look in the front nose wheel bay it may be magnetized to the top magnet. Wait this is JCW release. Gears might be fixed if they are, then you need a very small touch of glue.

Yeah no magnets on this model, small piece of blue-tac into the gear well has sorted the issue and also helped to fix the fact the gear was crooked

You lot are being far too picky.......

That’s what I was thinking, that was until I had my copies delivered, both Neo and standard livery. I am not one to nit pick but these models are pretty disappointing. I was so looking forward to having the full fleet but there are too many things that I just can’t ignore. The orange at the front looks like a folded decal, the orange at the rear should follow the contour of the tail like on the model card and box but this also in error. I have returned both of my copies and cancelled my preorder. Such a shame.
Yes there are those who will say it’s just a model and it’s not real, however at these increasing prices I expect simple things like these to be correct, I will accept little errors but not this. Very sorry JC.
