Is it just me or does the Phoenix A321 with sharklets look more like a Tu 204 than an A321 ?



That said, I'll probably go for the Monarch A321 and have already ordered the Thomson 767W from last month when it was announced.

I agree it does! However, just like you I have pre-ordered it today plus excitedly awaiting the Thomson 767W which I also ordered last month too

don't know what it is but it is pretty far from an a321... PH always fatten the portion above the nose and make the head look really wide, which is fatal on their 320's. they never replicate the flat surfaces on the sides where the windshields are placed.

KLM 772, Lufthansa 748i, & Qatar A346. Might go back for the LOT 734 despite PX's interesting 737 mould.

Well quite a few releases for me. I will order the KLM 777 and KLM 747 this month and postpone buying the Aeroflot 767 and LOT 737 for February.

Note .. Too bad that Aeroflot 767 could not be released on the now defunct Apollo mould. Not a fan of the Phoenix 767.

Note .. Phoenix had such a brilliant 737-400 in 1:200 scale, would have loved to see the LOT done using that mould. Not a big fan though of the Phoenix 737 in 1:400 scale.

Note .. Just noticed they again have that cheatline on the KLM 777 running into the wing root. May just wait a bit to see if Gemini will also include it in this months releases.

Must be a sign that I was supposed to order the Monarch A321 G-ZBAO today. She just went over my house

LH Siegerflieger 748i for me! Would love to have that KLM 744 95 Years, but not from Phoenix. Hopefully GJ or somebody 'Velocity or BigBird' will do this someday.

It looks dark purple to me - the same as the A300 release.

I made the point years ago when Phoenix stuffed up the Monarch 767 release, then recently with the A300 release, so I presume they are going with a consistent wrong, much like their Virgin Atlantic releases ? Wrong yes, but at least they match...

It should be a 'deep' purple, like a Cadbury's Chocolate wrapper but slightly darker. Phoenix have opted for something more like dark blue ink. Look at the Gemini releases of the the 2002 livery for a better representation.

Before everyone runs out and buys the PHX Lufthansa 747-8i, Gemini Jets is going to release the same model. Posted on their Facebook page an hour ago.

Wow, what a release. And I didn't expect to see a Aeroflot B767 and LOT 737 as well.

I think I will still buy the Phoenix version, not a fan of this "wait, we'll be releasing the same model" game.

....... until you do a Monarch diorama, and mix them with models having the correct colour from other manufacturers.

Indeed so, and I'm not excusing them for that. If you sit the Phoenix and Gemini Monarch releases together you will be disappointed, if you sit Phoenix and Gemini Virgin Atlantic current billboard livery models together, you will also be disappointed.

Attachment 99156 Here is the 1st pic online of the PHX version 747-8i "Siegerflieger'. I also added the GJ version coming out in the near future. Any differences you guys can tell?

I will get the two Jetstar models but just can't understand why Phoenix don't release the Qantas 737-400.

The PHX gears are quite ductile. All you have to do is bend it back straight with light finger pressure and it's good as new.
