Anyone else think that the winglets have been redone? They look wider to me...

Maybe just my monday morning eyes

Could just be the lens angle, it's easy to make these winglets look enormous with too wide a lens. I'll probably go for this one although would have preferred the original Ryanair/Boeing Dreamliner livery as was when it first appeared. Ryanair's new Boeing 737-700 crew training aircraft departed PIK to go for full livery respray last week, would be nice to see this done in 1:400 soon as well.

Also of note this month, the Varig 743 looks really nice. We could use more 743's actually.

The AF 77W and maybe the Thai A333 for me. I see Phoenix is back to using the old 77W wings that they were using three or four years ago (I had them on my CX 77W this month).

Why does the THY and Thai get released so much? Surely they coulda done something more exciting instead of the same models released already before????

What differences are there between the old and new PHX 77W wings? Is one considered better than the other?

I'll post a picture when I'm home later. The old wingtips have the protrusion at the end (a position light mounting) but not the correct sweep back angle at the tips whereas the more recent wingtips have the correct angles but no position light mounting.

Insipid and dreary set of releases. Nothing for me.

Whatever happened to Icelandair 757-200 Hekla Aurora?

How about a DHL 763F WL?

More of the same airlines this month and nothing for me, Phoenix and the thais must be really tight to keep releasing thai, Even my thai loving friend gave up collecting because of the amount of thai being released.

The wow A321s are a interesting, off the wall choice of release, Which colour is the original livery?

Considering this is A6-EYD from 4 weeks ago, and im sure ive seen it in Edinburgh in the last 2 weeks, How have phoenix managed to put the new paint scheme on it, or is something wrong?

I'd definitely buy that Ryanair 737-700WL if it was released.

I reckon this year we will still see releases of:
Hekla Aurora Icelandair 757-200WL
EasyJet A320SL in new livery
Thomas Cook A330 in new livery
WestJet 737 Tartan Tail
ANA Star Wars

DHL 767-300WL is already out released by geminijets what we need is the 767-200BDSF, 737-400SF & A300-600RF under those colors, may be aeroclassics for the last 2 models but i doubt it

You got that right! Thank goodness for my Varig 747-300 from AC/Latin Classics! I wouldn't take $1,000.00us for it.

Hence, no box art photos this go-around ?
I couldn't possibly ask for actual model depictions, could I ? Nahhh ...

The white WOW is the regular livery, the all purple one was to celebrate their first A321 for their new Trans Atlantic service from Iceland to Baltimore and Boston.

A6-EYD is painted in the new livery.
