It will be very difficult to differentiate between the PHX A333 or the AC 333 but in my eyes the AC wins because of a single point because of the accuracy part. Opinions can differ but there has been a bunch of comparisons on this forum on these to moulds.

Hey Polar very nice collection. looks like you have the older classic and the new liveries nearly completed. In all you have a quite a good mix.

One request if you could include the Regs/ Model # with the picture, i dont know about the rest, but I can follow a little better.
I have been following all the pictures on your collection that you have on all the forums. I would say a very nice collection overall

That is what everyone seems to be unhappy with. QC on PHX. it is either gears, or colors or the defects with models like the ones you said.

Thank you guys.....IMHO no doubt the detail in AC has a winning edge, the only problem for me are the engines that too close to the ground. As for Phoenix....their QC is getting worse and worse. Specially the front landing gear that are not straight.

Hehehehe.....thanks arinmuk. I'll put the regs and the maker. Actually I have around 40 Singapore Airlines in my collection. From DW, PH, AC, and GJ. I'm a fleet builder...so I just concentrate to the livery that I collect.

AC needs to improvise on its blocky A330 nose! I hope someone is listening!

Yep, the engines on the AC A330 are way too close to the ground. Don't think I could live with that. The nose doesn't look quite right either. I prefer the Phoenix version.

Awesome collection! Thank you for sharing!

Although I like, but Singapore airlines update speed, and has a huge fleet, the historical aircraft type too much, collect it will quickly go bankrupt, I can only choose to give up.

Great pics! I'm not an experienced 1:400 collector but am planning to get the Phoenix 1:400 Singapore Airlines B773ER - 9V-SWT (last picture). Have a question about the engines, am I the only one who sees the back of it painted blue? Plus does this model suffer from the QC issues? Any comments about the reliability and service of wafflecollectibles.com would be much appreciated as well. Thanks!

They purposely made it. Not defect at all!

It's just like when any 777 is brand new it comes with such color!

Nice SIA fleet you got there Polar.
I would prefer PHX to AC for the 330.The engines on the AC 330 don't look right.A bit over sized i think.

Never had any issues with him.And in my opinion shipping is prompt and the prices are great.Also some hard to find models do pop up on his site.

Thanks for the info But what about those engines? It appears that all the 777 above have the back of the engines painted blue. Never seen one like that, or at least not yet for a Singapore Airlines 777.

Thanks for the info But I still don't see why Phoenix painted it so blue and somewhat glossy, plus it seems that they are only doing this to Singapore's 777-300ER. I guess it's a problem on their part huh. Can't escape the fact that they have the best 777 mold out there though, and i've got to say the SQ 777 looks really good.

Actually i think its more of gunmetal blue, i have both SWD and SWT from Phoenix and i love both of them. I think GE90 exhaust cones are made to be blue and i actually like the bluish hue phoenix added to their exhaust cones

Thanks for educating me I guess there's more to the world of commercial aircrafts for me to discover I see that the A380s you've got are all from Phoenix polar, so are they the best in the market as well?

Thanks peetrick. Phoenix has the best A380 and B777 mould. Even though lately Phoenix QC is getting worse. Cheers.....

The most obvious for the B773ER is the raked wings.
