Still waiting (almost a year so far) for the Inflight200/ JFox version ..Product # WB-787-10-002. Hoping it will not have those flaws.

Hello Jon,


I saw you post on FB and it appears that this release is like many others these days. Part Tampo and part decal, and what happens in between is disaster as the two ends shall never meet.

Your amazing pics however do make up for the disappointment. Absolutely enjoyed the pics on a 36" flat screen 👍

Nice pics! When displayed it won't be that noticeable!

This is the Italian version AKA the Leaning Tower of Pisa version!

You have a great attitude about it...sometimes you just gotta laugh.

I was thinking if displaying on a stand with the the plane at an angle and the way the door tilts, it may be less noticeable...give it a try anyway!

Judging by the pictures I'm not convinced any kind of decals are applied here. Decals usually have a very thin border around them as they build up an extra layer on the surface which I can't seem to find here.

It is also very clear that the port side printing "1000tn" is not intential but rather by mistake as the entire forward section including the doors is slightly angled. Tampo printing was not executed carefully enough and seems to have been rushed through or without any q/c.
