Default NG Models New A350-900: A First Look

NG Models kick-off 2020 with their next new mould - this time it is an Airbus A350-900. NG seem committed to making themselves a major contender in this scale and a new A350 is surely going to hurt Phoenix, Gemini and JC Wings. It is however the Aviation400 A350 that it has to beat. Here I take a first look at a very early prototype:

Interesting that ng are making an a350. It's quite a cut throat mould with 4 manufacturers already making it on 3 different moulds. Hopefully ng can do a good job, it'll be tough beating av400s a350.

Looks decent but would’ve loved to see moulds that need a proper reintroduction back into 1/400 that haven’t been seen in years. Hasn’t every manufacturer already made most possible liveries for the a350? NG is a bit late to the party so how would their sales be for a model that’s already been released by others countless times

I'm in agreement with others, new moulds of older or little done types float my boat more. But good luck with the A350-900. I'll take a look at it.

NG Models are on a roll - churning out new hi-res moulds as if there was nothing to it. We know it's much more challenging than it would appear, and we gape in awe. NGM is reinventing the hobby. Doug

I think that adding the A359 to their mould portfolio is a good move. There are an increasing number of liveries to choose from and it is a mould where there is some room for improvement.

I think it is fair to ask for other moulds but you have to remember that NG needs to make money here as well. "NG models have been flying off the shelves!" you may say. For some models, yes, but not for all. How many of the more rare or obscure 757 liveries did you ask for and NG delivered upon? Quite a few. A lot of them are still sitting on sale at various retailers. Just go over to Waffle's website right now and see how many previously released 757 models are still there.

It's absolutely wonderful that NG addresses many under-served liveries and moulds, but don't get upset that NG is releasing a popular, mainstream mould to keep revenue flowing.

I think back to some of the Russian Freighter aircraft, both Gemini and Herpa did in 1:200 scale. The moulds must cost a fortune, and the number of Airlines to be done is limited. My point is, a ton of money up front, and the hope that you make a profit. Actually, I think Gemini was 1:400 scale?

Thanks for Richard's review. This is the first public appearance for this 3D sample. Can it be accepted by everyone? Let's wait until the final mould is finished. This mould is also made to enrich NG's product line, we hope to provide more products choose for our fans.

I, too, am a fan of the AV400 A350. Got rid of my GJ Delta A350 long ago because it just didn't look right next to my AV400 Lufthansa A350. With NG joining the A350 party, I hope their A350 can compare to AV400's, and I think it's already proven that we can count on NG to deliver a Delta A350.

The mould looks great! I hope to see it in the Malaysia Airlines 9M-MAG Negaraku livery in the not too distant future.

I just knew that NG would do this mould sooner rather than later, also figured they would round out their 737 line with more variants, and glad to see them doing just that. They seem to do one older plane, then a newer modern plane, and back in forth. I look forward to seeing this finished product as well as their 747SP. Nice to see they’ve added the A321 recently to their portfolio. Keep up the great work NG.. ToddCB

They have, both on back order but no sign of either here in the UK (which is what I meant in my previous post that I'm still waiting to see them in the flesh)..

Sometimes you can buy them direct from China and it actually ends up being cheaper.

I just today received my BA one - the China Southern came in a few weeks ago. Pretty sure I'll switch over to NG's mould if it gets the tweaks that Richard has pointed out are needed, but I don't see much reason to replace the AV400's I already have. I'd definitely like to replace a few of the JC/GJ ones - I think I've already sold all my PHX ones because they were pretty uniformly terrible.

The source of that A321 is of concern to me. If it's a hand-me-down from Panda, then it's illegally cloned from our IP, and I will not tolerate that kind of behavior.
The political climate in the U.S. is very much in favor of going after those who pirate the work of others, and those who support them, and we will not hesitate in going down that road if need be to protect our intellectual property, hard work, and investment.

Hi Mr. Andrew, feel happy to see you here. Regardless of whether this mould(A321) is related to you or not, we respect your outstanding contribution to this hobby.
From the business level, no matter whether NG and AC will constitute a competition, we will always respect you as a respectable friend.

Yes, launching hit products/moulds is a way for us to make a profit and continue to survive; launching niche products/moulds is to make long-awaited wishes come true and to reduce regrets.
We thought it would make both sides(NG & collectors) more happier.

Panda's A321 was made more than a year after HYJLwings one so I don't think they are connected.

I have a panda, hyjl and a aeroclassics a321. Whilst the shape of the models is similar due to the aircraft but both are very different. The hyjl wings is smaller than the panda version and is pretty much the same size as the aeroclassics. The landing gear is very different to the aeroclassics and the printing is very different to the aeroclassics.

Makes sense. A350 will be around for decades, and will undoubtedly continue to add new liveries and operators. Lots of money to be made there.

I won't be buying any - I'm a classics collector. If making A350's alongside L1011's is what makes money, sounds like a solid plan.

Yes those are different. The line around the cockpit seems different to me as well, and so does the wing where the pylons attach. The horizontal stabilizers are more rounded at the end on the HYJL. But the definitive difference to me is the shape of the fuselage at the wing root - it's almost a wholly different shape and that tells me that the HYJL/NG A321 is not related to Panda/AC at all.

Spirit is AC - flatter line at the top, China Southern Skyteam is HYJL - more bulging, circular line



I have more pictures of the differences, but don't want to hijack this A350 thread anymore, so - I hope NG makes an Iberia A350 since I'm likely to fly on one of those in the near future, and the JC version was not executed well at all.

Interesting, I didn't notice that. Hopefully this mould can get some good use.

It's very interesting. I'll wait the first release, to look the final mould and to decide to buy it. Any news about the stretched B757-300 mould ?

I have many PH A350's models in my collection and waiting for my first AV400 model to arrive because everyone is so happy about AV400.. I think that NG will make a very very good model to put in the market because they always ask people how it looks and always make changes to the mould.. I have to see one with colors on it but this looks promising..

The AV400 A350-1000 mould isn't as good as its hype would suggest: it has a blunt nose, the cockpit windows appear to sit a tiny bit low giving it the appearance of having a large "forehead" and the aerials and nosegear are too large. It's definitely a step up from Phoenix, but it trade blows with the JC Wings rendition.

It's definitely a step up from Phoenix, but it trade blows with the JC Wings rendition.
Thank you for your opinion.. I will have to wait and see myself but at least there is a new player on the market for the A350..!!

I would also do N75851 in Continental colors as well, with winglets. I saw them as the best looking 753s out there!

Here I take a first look at a very early prototype:

Question Re: NG Models New A350-900: A First Look

Hi all,i have finally joined today!

I want to start off by saying that i agree ,well i feel AV400 are the VERY best for A350 at 1:400 scale and Inflight200 at 1:200 scale so far or at the moment!

What i wanted to say is i now have every livery i wanted for an A350 except SAS -900 variant and maybe Air Caraibes -1000 variant! I will get these as AV400 as well!

What i love most about AV400 and i am sure its been mentioned somewhere and i have mentioned it onto 2 or so bloggers websites is they do glass jewel warning lights and blue hue on the engine exhaust! The nose looks very similar to the Airbus own model from their shop site?? Though its the little details that make all the difference! i just wished their packaging was like NG's with foam craddle as it reminds me of WittyWings A380 boxes!

I will probably not buy any NG A350's as i have already got what i wanted and i will not be doubling up! It would have to be a fantasy livery or something that would change my mind! Maybe thats a NG route doing retro liveries of airlines that have bought them so far, for those who would like a NG version,they could buy one in a retro livery like a BA Landor A350!! Hows about that! I am not a fan of their current livery! Dreadfully plain i;m afraid but they are all going that way it seems nowadays!

As i see NG have commented here and they do like to hear from their fans/buyers i think 2019 was the year of the Tristar from them! NG did exquisite Tristars! I bought only 500's versions like the BA Landor livery,Delta retro livery which was my model of the year for me as AV400 A350-1000's did not turn up in time!Otherwise they would have been top amongst them!

The AV400 Virgin Atlantic model is just hands down way better than the Gemini jets and Phoenix Version! The Phoenix BA version is a joke,windows pointing to the sky and blue to high up the fuselage,please avoid!
However Phoenix Etihad and new SAS A350 models are actually in my view quite good,its amazing with Phoenix,its always hit & miss with them? They do a great model then follow-up with a bad one!

JCwings i have never bothered with when it comes to A350's and hey anyone waiting for any of their pre-order models i feel sorry for you,you will still be waiting in 2021 ! Terrible waiting times!

A good example is the B787-9 F1 livery at 1:200 scale that was released in November 2018 at the same time as Inflight200! Ok a few months late i can handle as long as the model is good and the Inflight200 version was and bit late but anyone who decided to go for the cheaper option of JCWings and the same livery/model type,well it still has not arrived! JCWings are doing this on loads of models! Avoid pre-order,wait till they show!

Lastly i have suggested that NG should concentrate on A330-900 NEO's ! Why? No-one except Phoenix has done any? They could become market leader for the type and if they make it as good as their other models types it will sell well! I do feel the A350 is TOO LATE now as so many have got what they wanted already livery wise and why would they want to double up ???
So as said fantasy liveries or new order types that come along as most have got the liveries they wanted and most who are in the knowlegse have chosen AV400!

Regards.

Indeed they have Aznichiro but like Phoenix have done a few and there odd 1 at Gemini,they are just OK nothing special!

Jon Champs reviewed that model over at 1:400reviews! He was not that impressed and Jon seems to me to be very dedicated to showing detail and failings of bad models so others can see and don't buy or help make their own mind up!

Jon is very strict with his marking I have always found,so I am very interested to see what he thinks of AV400 models!

Due to a model going walkabouts it seems Airspotters found a replacement as most have sold out,gone and I assume that's the model and VirginAtlantic livery Jon will be doing and comparing as he has the Gemini and maybe the Phoenix A350-1000 to compare it against as he buys a lot of Virgin models and I wonder if he could not have resisted whilst the really long wait for AV400 A250-1000 models to arrive on UK shores and got the Phoenix one too! Anyway its Friday it should be this week coming! Leave your views there too as well if you visit!

Regards.

Sorry, Gemini. We're not interested in your crappy, overpriced models that no one wants anymore.

I'm just wondering what Gemini did to him that he got his panties in a wad

FYI Tyler, I just unboxed my newest GJ model, a BEAUTIFUL Air Canada n/c ERJ-175, and it is in one piece, as usual. A big thanks to the boys in Las Vegas!!

Good for you. Thanks to your "boys", every model Ive recieved from them in the past year has had smudged and/or been in pieces. Even recieved one with parts missing!

Im happy we're getting neos from someone competant. Maybe then I can stop sending botched models back
