The SIA 77W is ONLY available from RS, not Hogan.

Now I ask you. Is the SIA A380 here by RS? Those engines don't look like RS A380 engines.

As I knew RS only has SIA B777-300 with registration number 9V-SYA, not B777-300ER.

what's the difference between B773 and B77W? heard you guys mentioning (9V-SYA) is B773 and (9V-SWF) is B77W... what's the 'W' suppose to mean? RS have both registration number of 9V-SYA and 9V-SWF.

RS has made both the 777-300 AND the 777-300ER. The code for the 777-300 is 773 and for the 777-300ER its 77W. The RS 773 is 9V-SYA and the 77W is 9V-SWF. I have posted pics of my RS SIA 77W.

SQ's B773s have registration starting with 9V-SY* while their B77Ws have registration starting with 9V-SW*.

How 'different and somewhat better'? I notice that the UD pax window line slopes up toward the aft.

Yes the engines. That was I was referring to, but now that you mention it yes, the UD windows do look a little to high.

Does SQ sell stuff in flight? Just found out I'll probably be flying SQ to Asia in May so hopefully I can pick something up in flight

You might have to pre-order it as I hardly think they'll carry models the size of a 1:200 A380 on board.

You're right, I'm thinking of the smaller unassembled Hogan boxes, not the large, assembled model boxes.

I changed my flight routing to go through SIN now so hopefully I can just pick one up there.

Large scale (1:200) aircraft models seem available only by mail order. Even you take the flight of SIA you could only fill in mail order form and hand to flight attendant. Pre-order is a good idea if you could get items on your next flight.
