BA missed a trick by not putting a South African tail on it really. Although I suspect the notion was frowned upon at the time...

Been a long time between posts here but just received mine today - it is a lovely model and being half Scottish brings out a bit of national pride!

Had a look over it and I think there may be couple of minor printing errors (there may be a few more that I've missed but these are the ones I think I've found):

1. On the vertical stabilizer, the vertical white stripe running up from the bottom corner of the stabilizer should have a bright red 'stitch' at the top (see: https://www.airliners.net/photo/Brit...7-236/159122/L). This appears to be missing on the box art as well.

2. I'm not sure about this one (and please correct me if I'm wrong), but I believe for all World Tail schemes the English name is under the left cockpit window and the local/indigenous name is under the right cockpit window. The name under the right cockpit window should therefore be "Benyhone" and not "Scotland" as on the model. I can't find a good picture for G-BIKO but this is clear to see on the 767 G-BNWT (see: https://www.airliners.net/photo/Brit...36-ER/881228/L)

I know I am being a bit nitpicky and is intended only to be some feedback / comments to NG in case it helps for future releases.
