Default JC Wings British Airways 1:400 Boeing 763 G-BZHA

Just received this model; impressed with the quality, a worthy addition to the collection. I note that the box shows the image of two British Airways Boeing 763, G-BZHA and G-BNWA both sporting the Union colour scheme, my question, does anyone know if this is a double release of the BA 763 this month or if G-BNWA is future release?

Mine is still on order, hoping to have it soon. No idea if there's a double release or not.

Anyone selling off the Gemini version? Snapped the tail on mine.

Looks good. My only issue with JC Wings 767s is that they print the cockpit windows too large.

Looks good, the finish and colors are nice. I agree the cockpit windows are a skosh too large.

Does the tail seem a tad too tall or is it just me ?

ETA: I've sat it tail to tail with my equivalent Gemini BA 763, and lo and behold the Gemini sits taller. I'll take a pic tomorrow to demonstrate.

Despite first appearances, the Gemini 767 appears to sit much taller than the JC version (pictured left).

So sad JC Wings could not release this version of the 767-300 in the BA Union Jack colors in the larger 1:200 scale.. so either way i might have to get it in 1:400 then, it would look cute anyway next to the smaller NG Model BA 757
