Its impossible to put a reg on a model that is probably still 2 to 3 years away from delivery to the airline.

The HG JAL 787 got a reg, as did the second release HE ANA 787, but I know that most likelihood it wont happen.

The Hogan A380 got the reg right (not sure if the reg was already disclosed before that), but when the actual A380 came out, the changed the colours on it

The JAL could be a fake reg also and ANA being the first airline to take delivery this year probably had the reg allotted to the a/c already. The 748i is still too far off, and that too for KE as LH will be taking delivery before KE.

Until now there is even in WingsWorld a photo of this model.
So we have to do with this drawing.

HL7478 would be a good rego, a rather suitable one!

edit: HL7478 is already a rego on a real Korean air a/c!

now although its a new mold with the non-clear cockpit windows, still the shape of the nose is off, like in the case of the other HG B747s... also those wings being in the inflight mode with gears is something that still makes this model a mere 'fantasy' for me.... i think i might pass this one...

You guys might think I'm crazy, but I think I'm going to pass this model for now for following reasons.
1. Window arrangements will be different in actual aircraft due to Korean Air's new interior arrangements.
(I think the model has default window pattern)
2. Wings are over flexed and look little bit funky with gears down. (I always prefer gears down)
3. No registration.
4. Korean Air logo BOLD title has gotten bigger recently. KE has been enlarging its bold titles on both sides on B773Ws, B772s
and even on A300-600Rs. This model has current size, but I strongly believe it will be bigger.

Similar reason why I did not buy HG KE B787.
I know most of you think I'm crazy not buying KE model, but I think I'm going to wait.

Why should you be crazy.
You may know for yourself what you're bying or don't.
Let's hope that Hogan change it on the final production model.

The final production model will be released in May and I don't think there is any way Hogan can predict what the actual a/c when delivered to KE will look like by then. This is just a generic example of what the KE 748 would look like.

this is the B748 mold, which apparently does not have the clear cockpit windows you are referring to...
