Default NG Model - 1:400 June 2019 "Hints"

NG Model have provided the following "hints" for their June 2019 release, they'll confirm the release shortly. June 2019 will see the long anticipated launch of their L1011 mould with 4 models, the A330 makes an appearance with 4 models and the Boeing 738 with 6 models. For those of you waiting on the Boeing 789, I am assured that the next release will include the upgraded model, as well as the return of the Boeing 752.

So to the "hints"

L1011

N76XXX
N76XXE
EI-XXX
G-BXXX

A330

N28XXX
HB-XXX
HS-XXX
B-XXX

Boeing 738

G-NXXX
D-ATXX
D-ABXX
VP-XXX
B-78XX
VH-XXX

L-1011 :
N76XXX : Delta -500
N76XXE: Rich International
EI-XXX : Hawaiian
G-BXXX : BA -500

This would be a nice mix of classic and unexpected schemes....

No 752s or the new 789 mould yet? Shame, but all the fans of the L1011 fans will be happy finally.

A330:

N28XXX - Could be Avianca, but id rather hope it to be an American
HB-XXX - Most likely Thai
HS-XXX - Could be either Swiss or Edelweiss or maybe an older airline like Swissair?
B-XXX - Could be Cathay?

738:


G-NXXX - I hope it isn't the FedEx 738, as Panda have already made one and wouldn't make any sense to another, I would assume.
D-ABXX + D-ATXX - Air Berlin, Condor, Eurowings or TUI I suspect.
VP-XXX - Maybe Aeroflot, or S7, or Rossiya
B-78XX - No idea, something Chinese, like Sichuan
VH-XXX - Most likely the special Livery Qantas 738.

None of the major retailers have made any AC announcement for June, yet.

Yeah, but the NG L-1011 is better.

Was hoping for an ATA and Thai Sky L-1011 but definitely will save up for the Delta and Rich. Maybe the B-XXX A330 too, only if its a Dragonair.

I think you're probably spot on with several of these (not that I have any intel) although you've got your HS and HB the wrong way round . Also you managed to pick about the only Chinese major that doesn't fly 737s

The Tristar will not be a Rich International but other guesses look pretty likely

Only a moron would make such a claim!! Completely devoid of any logic or reason!

How can something which doesn't exist yet, be better than something which already exists.

Some of you tuchass leckers are just nauseating!


As for the guesses; easy, predictable, and also available from a competitor next week!
N765DA: Delta Airlines
EI-BTN: Hawaiian
N763BE: Hawaiian Air
G-BBA?: British Airways

Was hoping for more 752s as well. N-reg 752s!

Hoping for an American A330-200 as well. I'd like to see how NG does the AA fuselage color. GJ and AC both have at least two variations (a really shiny one and a not so silver duller one) of the AA fuselage color. It does seem to be a difficult color to nail down.

Glad to see the 738 mould getting so much use! The VP registration again caught my eye, being very greedy after the AC Max but hoping this is Cayman Airways again 😂

I too would love to see Cayman Airways, but Aeroflot would be great as well for the VP- 737-800. And possibly two Hawaiian L-1011’s ? Well that would be just perfect for me !!!

Not whilst it's listed under the L-1011 column it won't. But I too look forward to the 'Primavera' in the future. I'd say the G-BXXX is more likely a British Airways TriStar.

Forgot to put my reading glasses on. But I’ll keep plugging for a “Primavera” at any opportunity.

Why does the caption for the TAP TriStar have a British reg? Should have a CS- reg?

N-reg 752's are likely to have more winners for me than 738's.

Yes, that seems to be an issue for 'silvery gray' painted fuselage colors, such as the Northwest final livery, Virgin's early 2000's livery, Alitalia, American. One offense is when makers make the colors sparkly.

Aeroclassics did the Northwest final color really well on their 747, but then muffed it on the DC-9's by doing a light sparkly disco-glitter. Not sure why they didn't just use the 747 color.

As far as the glittery disco look to the painted grays and painted silvers, they are correct as the actual aircraft paint has the glitter chips in them, I think it’s just a matter of scaling the paint down, or the fact that the paint doesn’t scale down enough. When you peel the paint off an actual AA plane and hold to the sun at an angle it’s easy to see the glitter in the paint, and as fine as the sparkly chips are in the paint, I couldn’t imagine scaling that down 400 times for a model and still have it look the same, just my perspective.

Agree AC did the colors better with their NWA 747s compared to the last batch of DC-9s. But I'm satisfied with the DC-9-50 that I have. Not sure if the paint was slightly modified for their DC-9s, but their NWA A330 colors were atrocious and I unloaded those very quickly. I've got high expectations that NG will get NWA final colors done perfectly....

I don't mind the "disco glitter" so long as the colors are done right. I do mind no disco glitter and colors being way off.

Yeah, I did notice several. I trust they won't be reflected on the real things, but whoever did those posters was in one helluva rush, and skipped all proofreading:


- American A321 NEO (N400N)
+ Picture shows standard 737-800, and the correct registration of AA's first A321N is N400AN

- Hawaiian Aielines [sic] L1011 (N763BN)
+ I assume a simple typo

- TAP Air Portugal L1011-500 (G-BBAF)
+ TAP never operated any G-registered L1011's. Theirs all had CS- registrations

Ahh yes. Looks like the above-noted errors have all been corrected (or removed, entirely, in the case of the American A321N).

I have a feeling the G-BXXX will be a BA Landor -500, either G-BLUS or G-BLUT.

Your perspective is 100% spot on, and accurate!! Thanks for that!!

L1011

G-BXXX-Btours? Wishful thinking but it would be cool to see it.

A330

N28XXX-Probably Avianca
HB-XXX-I would assume Swiss or Edelweiss
HS-XXX-Thai or AirAsia though considering Panda has the latter well-covered I'd bet Thai
B-XXX-Cathay most likely

Boeing 738

G-NXXX-Jet2? I wish...
D-ATXX
D-ABXX-This and the above one will probably be TUI Group
VP-XXX-Aeroflot? S7 perhaps?
B-78XX-Probably Xiamen
VH-XXX

Having been in this business for well over 20 years, having produced some (not all) of the finest models out there, I seriously doubt I can take your pathetic statement seriously.

NG makes substantially better models than you do and have much better customer service.

EDIT: And the fact that they don't do whiny, thinly-veiled advertisements in your product threads speaks volumes about your insecurity that a newcomer without 20 years of experience has been able to totally show up your work.

I would have stayed out of this thread completely, until you made your first, moronic remark, which drew a response.
Next time, think before you post!!


Note to moderator: feel free to delete this, and all my previous posts in this thread ONLY AFTER you also remove ALL of this morons posts as well!! Thank-you!

My first moronic remark was stating my preference for one model over the other?

You are a joke.

No, you stated a preference for something which does not yet exist over something which does exist.

That is not stating a preference, that is fulfilling an agenda. Big difference!

If you wish to make such statements in future, try waiting until whatever you choose to promote as better, actually exists. You may have a tad more credibility that way, and not earn the wrath of those who know you actually have an agenda, and are calling you out on it.
Carry on!

I haven't peeled the paint off of any actual AA planes...I don't think the FA's and CSA's would go for that!

If there is glitter in the AC Northwest 747, it may be 'scaled' better because that color looks good. The DC-9's don't. Part of it is also that the 747 color is a more accurate slightly darker shade of gray.

Happy Dragon Boat Festival(The 5th day of the 5th lunar month). The festival originated from the ancient Chinese sacrifice to the dragon, and later commemorated some special historical figures, as well as performing rituals to ward off diseases in the early summer. Now people eat Zongzi and watch dragon boat races in this festival. Zongzi is a kind of food has glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo Leaves. A very interesting holiday, here to share with all our foreign friends.
