They´re doing 787-9 and 787-10. So why not 350-900 and 350-1000. But who knows..

I'm in two minds about this if I'm honest. As much as I love NG and the excellent products they produce,I think personally they should've left the 350 and focussed more on doing a 767 or DC-10. AV400 have nailed the 350 so they should have the market for this,but then saying that,their release times are abysmal. As much as I love my AC DC-10s, I think NG would take it up a few notches more. My opinion anyway!

Personally, I would expect them to do both the 900 and 1000. In for a penny, in for a pound as they say.

The release schedule of AV400 is hopeless, still waiting on two (here in the UK) that have release dates of last summer - one is definitely out there as saw it for sale in Tokyo earlier in the year.

Whether they should do this mould Is a moot point, they are doing it. There are numerous others that no doubt would be winners. I would have thought that a B727-100 would prove extremely popular given that none exists at this time and there are a multitude of liveries that could be done and no doubt repeats of previously released models that would sell.

Remembering the days when we were allowed out to play, here is a couple of A350's that would no doubt be popular...

I agree.

I would expand on that. In addition to DC-10s and a new 767, I would also want MD-11s and 777s, particularly the -200ER and -300ER.

1:400 777s with no generic engine size a la Gemini with spinning blades would be amazing

It seems to me that NG would best focus on classic models that their competitors aren't doing. AC's DC-10 mould is outstanding, and does terrific DC-10's as long as they can get colors and research right.

We see on NG's FB page that the 747SP mould is in development. I can hardly wait! I would argue that 747-100/200/300 are the next highest priority, because those are largely MIA these days. And MD-80-series aircraft are mostly MIA. Gemini rarely releases one.

No Need to get GJs T7. JCW does a fantastic Job on theirs.

Yes, indeed, 787-8 is still missing, and I don't understand why ?

Even though I agree with Capt Tyler on his (or her) suggestion, I have to say that European Collector is correct in saying this. I have both the Eva and Kuwait 773's and they are superb!! Although JC imo are a little bit hit and run on when they're going to release certain types. You could literally wait months for a certain mould to reappear. I'm referring to the KAL748 they did ages ago. They absolutely nailed it and if anyone has this model they'll agree with me, so their release dates are a bit like AV400, except not as bad!

Yes please, the early Phoenix release was an abomination with it's off road gears and ground vacuuming engines. The only use I got from mine was as an antenna donor for other models missing one.

I am interested in Qatar, Vietnam, and long term Emirates.

-10 makes more sense currently as they can be the first to make many -10 schemes as they debut. I am sure they will expand to the -8 and we'll see 737 variants and A320s as time goes on.I hope they do a 737-700.



Likewise, I am sure we will see an A350-1000 in the future. They will start out with the -900 and expand.

I believe ng have said that they are working on a 787-8. Think all there focus is getting the a350 and 747sp mould finished. I believe that they are also working on a 757-300 so I would imagine after that we might get to see a 787-8

i have to say i'm growing on it, as it reminds me on one of these ex-soviet airlines from the 90s. Got some kind of retro feeling from it.

Disagree. That silver was generic and ugly for me. It hid the Aeroflot logo in the paint too much. While I'm not the biggest fan of white, you can read the airline logo name better.

On the other hand, as much as I like NG doing the A359 (I'll definitely buy it) there are other moulds out there that need attention, like the MD-80 or 747/-100/-200/-300. Their strategy may be to produce a popular and current mould to generate revenue so that they can produce other moulds that are more rare and may not garner as much excitement and attention as your 777, A330, or A320 moulds
