Default Another set of arrivals and 757 comparison photos

Got another two arrivals today...the LATAM Star Wars & the IF200 US Air Force C-32. To answer Crownvic...yes, I agree that the LATAM is too dark. It is noticeable, more so when you're inside. I don't really collect LATAM though and the only reason why I got this one was because of the WDW aspect. I would be more upset if this were say a Delta and they got the white wrong and now I've got a sore thumb sticking out amongst a larger collection. This will be the only LATAM I will ever buy. I think they did an excellent job on the rest of the model. But I can definitely understand frustrations over this one. Since this model has been well photographed I'll just post one:



















Like all other Inflights, the 757 is no exception and is definitely heavier. The engine comparisons are obviously comparing different engines. I think they're both great -- I would be ecstatic if someone could just finally redo the Delta widget to replace my rotted copy. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller...

Nice additions and pics. Like both 757's and hope inflight does a Delta. But theyd have to pay for the licence fee so chances are slim. That was the reason why the AV200 Delta Tristar didn't happen..

I know, that was a shame. I still think the Aviation 200 is the best version that has been made and I had the Inflight and Gemini versions at one point as well but sold them when the Aviation version came out.

Wait, that AA 757 is not from Inflight right? The one showed on pre-order from shops has registration N631AA and no-winglets.

Thumbs up Re: Another set of arrivals and 757 comparison pho

You should be very happy with the LATAM B777-300 as JCWINGS got the colors 100% correct (see here):

My Latam is on short finals. I love that C-32. I read recently that the USAF are not going to replace them, rather than use them to their end of their operating life.

May be a new pair of glasses ???

No.. “Spaß beiseite” which means to be serious again…

First by holding the model in my hands, I also thought they have done the fuselage colour wrong (= not pure white).

But looking in the internet at several pictures of the real one, I come to the conclusion that this is correct, as you could see also on the original a difference in the white colour of the fuselage and the engines.

And the best proof is the picture of the LATAM widebodies in storage…
