Default RS/SM Airbus A340-600s with gears?

Do the new RS/SM Airbus A340-600s now come with rotating engines? I know it's not the Herpa version, but still good.

Airkuro, what info do you have about this?

The cockpit windows are just... beyond belief. But I suppose with a A346 decal kit, you could attempt fixing them.

Yes, but some new SM/RS models now have rotating engines.
For example, I got CHINA SOUTHERN B777-200, well 6 months ago and
it came with ratating engines. Original CS B772 did not come with rotating
engines before.

Sorry I typed that late last night...I meant rotating engine blades!! They do look quite nice. So now the 744s, A380s and now A346s have these new features.

norhtwah, the KLM Cargo, as well as the KLM 744 both come with the new rotating engine blades...Damn good models!!

Thanks a lot!! Those are very nice. Where did you get them? The KLM Cargo at Airparadigm has the stretched hump. I'd like to get the KLM Cargo with the shorter hump like you have.

Second version of Lufthansa A346 and TAM A345 from RS/SM come with rotating engine fans.

That pic of the stretched hump is incorrect, as Moin pointed out that such a model does not exist. I think I got both from stores locally. (I can't recall as I get from the US as well)

johnhung, I guess those new spinning engines will fit on the old wings? Then I can upgrade the LH, SA & VS A346s. I know that the new 744 engines don't fit on the old wings, well at least some of them.

The 744, A380 and A346 spinning engines will all fit on the older style engines wings! The mold is the same only the internal components are different.

Believe it or not, the 744 engines do not fit on my RS/SM LH 744. They fit on the Royal Barge but not on the LH jet....very annoying!!

I believe you could fit new engine with spinning fans to old pylon on 747 by trimming the pylon.
