I think my Skymarks 1:100 version is fabulous for about 1/3 the cost.

IMO, I dont think landing gear are worth another $40 for a model that is half the scale.

There was a thread with pictures of a JX sample Q400 in the normal Horizon scheme.

Oh yes, the SAS is in their plans, but they do not know how to reproduce the main landing gear on that one...

Oh No! I think JetX have already perfected that particular feature
At the last Heathrow Air Fair I bought The South African and Qantas (non tampoon* version ).
Had to sort through a few, as most had various main undercarriage legs floating around loose in the box

Bring on SAS, Flybe and the Frontier.

they have stated that there was a problem with the way the nest was designed and that the damage problem was fixed now. regardless, if you post man drops the model, it still may break

unfortunately the props are even more fragile than the gear. Better hope your retailer is ready with spare ones.

well I don't know if they fixed the problem or if my postman is training for the Euro 2008 championship, but nethertheless my Qantas breast cancer Dash Q400 arrived with both main u/c loose, the stabiliser separated from the tail and both propellers shattered.

it looks like a total wreck
Jet X why don't you have foam packages like Herpa or gemini

this packaging sucks

i mailed Jet-X
they told me they did not manufacture the Qantas brest cancer one.
but the person that replied offered to send me some spares.
I would prefer to contact the correct manufacturer so i'm off for some research.
