Exclamation Need help - Cathay Pacific Cargo 747

Hi guys,

I need your help!

Can someone who owns the new 747 cargo version from Cathay Pacific please post some pictures of the model?

I just received mine and I feel certain, that the engines on my plane are mounted wrong.

I'd like to know if every plane of that release has this problem, or if I just have baaaaaaad luck.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers!

I saw a few pieces of this one myself and noticed the engines were fixed facing a slight upward angle.

It would surely be helpful, if you tell us, which model you mean. There is a plastic model based on Herpa's mould around as well as the recently released diecast model.

If you refer to the diecast model, which came out a few days ago, then I recommend to visit these threads:

There are also some pictures from various resellers on eBay...

Which model? Die cast or plastic? Some info or even pictures could help slot to answer your queries.

Basically Cathay operates RR engined 747-400F's, and a few 747-400 Boeing converted freighter which some has PW engines (or GE, can't remember). They also operate 747-400ERF's which has GE engines.

Sorry, forget to tell.

It's about the recently released die-cast 747-400 with RR engines.
Currently not at home, but will post some pics soon.
Yes, the engines seem to point upwards. I just wanted to know if every model has that issue.

Only one of the engines points upwards on mine.
