Default Gemini200 A330-900 Wingtip Problems

When I first saw the new release photos of the new A330neo, I knew something looked off. I’ve attached a photo below with the GJ version in the upper left, and three real life photos in the other boxes. GJ’s version appears to have the blue area too narrow, too straight on the leading edge, and a generally odd shape.

The 1:400 and 1:200 are quite different as well

Here’s even another two angles. So many ways to view this same tip. Still think GJ’s is too narrow and the blue on there Delta livery too high.

Did you really expect Gemini to get it right ?

The models aren't supposed to have the "Do not step" markings on the tops of the wings, either.

I agree there are errors and I would suggest those that are on the fence not to buy it so that those who do want one will get it before it sells out..I have looked at dozens of photos of the winglet and yes the model winglet does have an over pronounced curve on the left side which is made worse by zooming in and yes the color should be solid blue. the DO NOT STEP should be smaller.

But, I still got it. This is not critical for me.

Print is too small on actual aircraft (or too big on model) and I can't see a d&mn thing on this laptop screen.

well, sucks because i already paid for mine ;( .. I am quite disappointed because i now have three different model of this A330-900 and the most realistic one appears to be the cheapest: the herpa snap fit one.

The skymark version has the wrong look to fuselage/wing root.

The herpa snap fit one however got no landing gears or place for one ;(

I guess we will have to wait for the full herpa regular 1/200 treatment.... herpa regular 1/200 plastics are some of the best models, plastic or diecast.

“Model wingtip does have an over-pronounced curve on the left side”... okay, and what about the right side? Doesn’t it have that over-pronounced curve on the right wing? And, if not, how did that happen? I am a bit irritated.

Nice pics Baltman, the stencils on the belly are a nice touch.
I will say that WiFi dome should be the bigger, more oval one that is common on DL equipment. G200 does this correct on DL 737s so not sure why they wouldn't on an A339
