Default Cathay Pacific 777 !

...not new, I know, had forgotten about this one in my disk !
so took the time to create some pictures, although I'm a fan of the "old stuff", now and then a model comes along and makes me dream !
This is a beautiful one, its a triple 7, and the details are absolutely breath taking ! No doubt a master piece !!!!!I'm even including large pictures too, like the 777 !!! enjoy!

Nice close ups! I'm surprised you got something like this since you're a huge retro jet lover!

It's a pretty good model, and kudos to JC Wings for getting their 200 scale version of the 777 right. Only complaints are the cockpit windows and the shape of the nose.

Hey Bob I just might see you there on the 11th. I was there today for a good 2 hours as my spotting plan got cancelled and ran into Topsox, or should I say I identified myself to him lol. Btw Topsox your requested Tristar came in about an hour after you left.

Lovely shots! You've really captured all the details (and LOOK at ALL those details!). I particularly like the colour of this livery, specifically the 'light jade green'. Wow. Magnificent indeed.

After all that effort to detail this model up, it is really a shame they didn't get the '777' fundamentals correct. Outside of that, truly a magnificent model!
