The gap of the horizontal stabiliser is way too big... something unseen before on NG release.

I thought this is a bad copy so i asked for more to inspect

Apologies for the repeat thread. Thread edited but repeated and couldnt delete old one!!

I can understand the engines issue, but the tail seam looks ok. things are getting oversized when you increase pics to sizes like this. I just had a look at my AC DC-8s and Il-18. there is a seam around certain models tails. But I wouldn't complain about that.

The horizontal stab hole is ok, no issues with it (not everything can be perfect). The engines, well, bad luck for you, hope it’s just a aircraft (since the other one might have had the same issue but oposite engines).

Looks like a simple mix up in the factory regarding engines and a correct one could be swapped out ? Imagine how good your eyesight needs to be to see the difference in the context of a busy factory setting, with deadlines to meet.

Nice softball toss answer to which I agree...however imagine the outrage had another certain manufacturer have done this, the sh** would hit the fan with zero tolerance or forgiveness.

I agree, it's like the press with the left here in the US! Some of you 1:400 collectors need to quit with the NG "honeymoon period"!

...now where's our damned Fedex Falcon in 1:200 NG!?

My eyesight would not have caught this had I received this model.

I think the 105 mph fastballs have already started. The mismatched wheel issues have been brought up long enough already. The critiques of the 747SP have just begun and we'll see if NG acts on those. NG did fix the 787 nose down attitude issue, which was something even my eyes could notice and made me sell off both 787s I purchased right away. Counting on GJ not to f*@k up the UA 789 that's planned.

Slightly unrelated but when did Gemini Jets announce the United 787-9 in 1:400 as a future release? That and the BA 737 MAX been there for about a year I think. Why they haven’t done them by now I don’t know...

I hear ya Russ but "a certain manufacturer" doing this would largely go unnoticed too.
