Default FH-227 Mould Review and Wishlist

It has been fabulous to see the recent return of the FH-227 mould from Aeroclassics and with 11 releases on the newer mould good progress is being made. Nonetheless, there are I think still 7 remaining viable models:

Just out of curiosity, this isn't the exact same mould AC used previousely for F-27 releases, right?
Something about this mould looks strange and unbalanced. As if the "old" mould received a fuselage stetch only on the forward fuselage. Something makes me wanting to move that wing farther front by some mm.

I don't really get what you mean. The FH-227 only had a stretch forward of the wing. It certainly isn't the same mould Aeroclassics first used for the F-27, which equated more to a F27-500.

The FH-227 is just an odd looking aircraft

While I like the looks of those Fokkers I technically know little about them.

I find it highly strange to take an existing design and simply stretch it to one side as that moves CoG away from where it was supposed to be. Had the original design CoG issues that were fixed with this or am I missing something?
