Default Please help me decide: China Southern in HE A380 or RS B772

Hey everyone, I'm about to start my collection of Chinese airlines but got stumped with China Southern. So I just wanted to ask for your opinions to help me decide which model to buy: Herpa A380 or Risesoon B772.

1) Herpa A380


2) Risesoon B772


What do you think?

With shipping and everything, I found vendors selling:
  • Herpa A380 for US70
  • Risesson B772 for US52
So, price isn't really a big issue here.

Get the 777. The A380 is still a fantasy a/c and by the time the airline actually gets the a/c, they might have even changed the livery. The 777 is available directly from RS.

777 because personally, I would never buy a model of a plane before it actually flew because the last thing I would want in my collection is a fantasy model.

I don't would buy the A380 by Herpa, especially because i "hate" the models without a registration number.

Although the truth is that i'm not the better friend of the SKM/Risesson models.

Excuse me!! sir.

Since A380 is a fantasy model I would rather choose B777-200. If B777 has Skyteam logo, it would become more appealing.

777, China Southern will never have an a380 in their fleet. So it would be an inaccurate model.

You must quote some serious source before saying that China Southern will never have one.
The part of the first one (MSN031) for them have been built and it will be delivered in 2011 Q2.
Here is my serious (and reliable) sources :
A380 production list - Planes

and
MSN031 Airbus A380 Production

In other hands, the Herpa model is quite inaccurate has it doesn't have any registration.

I think the Risesoon B772 looks more accurate, more detailed and now used by the airlines. choose him!
