Default Quick question on JC Wings 1:200 ANA 777-300

Does this aircraft have the "correct" engine?

Any other "wrong" part of the aircraft that
I should be aware of?

Wink Re: Quick question on JC Wings 1:200 ANA 777-300

Simple answer. If the model is supposed to be depicting GE90 engines, they will be wrong. It is not only the engines, but the pylons which hold the engine to the wing. That shape is often wrong as well. You can see comparison photos [ HERE ].

But don't just judge the model by the engines, as often the JC and Gemini 777's are absolute dazzlers, even though the engines are incorrect.

Anything else to watch for? Sure. If you have the luxury of examining a few of these before buying, check the flightdeck windscreen is printed straight when viewed from head-on, and check that the main landing gear isn't splayed outwards when viewing the model straight from the front to the back. The struts should be straight vertical and 90º to the ground. Sometimes the whole run will be like this, so be prepared for your decision. (Can I fix it, does it really matter to me, etc, etc)

Which models have the correct engines? In diecast, I am only aware of Gemini's British Airways 777-236 (G-YMMO), in photos below, having anything that remotely looks correct. There may be others that I am unaware of.





In plastic, Hogan manages their 777-200's and -300s pretty well. Not 100%, but close enough to keep collectors from complaining.

Try to keep an open mind. Even though these manufacturers have cut corners with the powerplants, the models can still often times look superb and worth collecting.

hello
Jc ANA does have the correct engines as it is equiped with PW4090 (the only problem is the marking on the center rotating cone)

and the 2 previous SIA b777-300 are correct too


All ER versions are wrong

From comparing the photos of British Airways 777-236 (G-YMMO) that I provided from Airliners.net in my previous post, and the model produced by Gemini, I would go out on a limb and say, yes, the engines and pylons look pretty much as correct as one can expect in diecast. I doubt anyone here doing the same would argue that.

As far as the other two, Mr. Ghostk confirmed the accuracy of the JC200 SQ 773s and JC200 ANA 773s (providing they are NOT the 'ER version), so the model you are contemplating is, indeed, correct.

As far as any other accuracy issues with the JC200 ANA 773's, I can't say, as I have no knowledge of them. Perhaps someone else here can add their insight?

I hope that is helpful, yes?

Besides the engine, there is also a difference between the actual plane and model in color of flaps. The color is obviously greener than that of actual ANA 773.

From what I've seen up close at my local shop, the PW engines look pretty accurate to me, assuming they are the same as on "Gundam".

Don't forget JC200 SQ 777-200. I suppose it's equipped with correct engines, too.

The 1/200 GJ American 777-200 also has the correct RR Trent engines..unfortunately I believe this model is sold out everywhere.

Thanx for the confirmation. I believe the BA one is pretty much sold out as well.

Despite of some faults, it is also a good model.

If I were you, I would wait for the 1/200 diecast ANA 777-300er that is coming out soon. I think the raked wingtips look so much cooler.

Actually I believe you can probably still get it at the following places for a decent price:

Hobbytown USA - Tukwila, WA
Grayland Station - Chicago, IL (GraylandStation.com)
Aviation World - Bensonville, IL (Welcome to Aviation World)
Troy's Toys & Collectibles - Overland Park, KS (Troy's Toys & Collectibles, Inc.)

and if you REALLY want the AA 777-200 I think of all places, Grayland Station might still have it. I remember ordering mine over a year after it was released (Dec 2009 release) - the owner Steve was telling me he had some in offsite storage.

All great places to buy from..only place I haven't been to is Troy's Toys..

But then,
it would probably have the "wrong" engine, no?

When is the release date and who is the manufacturer?

I do not quite sure if the color of model flaps is right. It looks pretty greener than that of actual one.

That is correct, because it is an 'ER'.

I apologize, I got this mixed up with the Singapore Airlines 777-300er by JC Wings that should be released around 7 Nov 2011. Don't know if you're into SIA, but that should be a good release too.

And yes...the SIA 777-300er would still have the "wrong" engine...it wouldn't be a GE90.
