My BigBird 747's arrived yesterday. Photobucket was down for some reason, but they came back up and I got my photos uploaded.

These are very good models. The colors and printing are good, and the detailing good. The wings, as with the Cathay releases, are excellent but the gray is not quite as rich, and the finish not quite as jewel-like, as either Aeroclassics or the original BigBird400. But they are close enough that these are still excellent models.

For some reason they are shipped with the nosegear in place....the nosegear should come in a little plastic bag for the buyer to insert (and fasten with putty or rubber cement for easy removal!).

Now if they can just get a reliable production schedule going!

Here are some photos.







Unfortunately all three of the little credit-card sized souvenir cards did not have the model number stamped on them! (Maybe I have to hold them over the toaster? )
