Glad to have the NW 757 on order. I hope NG will also do the bowling shoe 742 to go along with this.

Those Courts look so amazing on their undersides that one's tempted to display them upside down.

The Delta Thank You looks incredible! Also loving the ANA Star Wars! But I do see the NG logo on the ANA box... hopefully we don’t have a Her Art Here situation again...

NG, please take your time to get the propper shade of paint for your A350's wings/pylons/h.stabs.
As I previousely said, you'll only have to do it once and have it correct for all 350 subjects to come (prototypes/demo liveries withstanding)

How did the United model "situation" affect you? Were you not able to get the models because of said "situation"? Were you sued?

Miraculously, I was able to just order mine from my usual retailer and they arrived at my house just like any other models. But please, do share your experience from the "situation" so that the rest of us can learn and be on the look out.

The Court Line pair look great, waited years for these to come out. Not long to wait now!

The Star Wars looks good to, I haven't ordered it but I am sure that those who have will be very pleased with it

Hoping for more classic liveries on the tristar next month...

It's all good. Just enjoy the hobby man! Don't worry about stuff that you don't need to worry about. That's for the people that bring you these great models to worry about. The whole licensing this and that conversation has thoroughly been beaten to death and then some. You'll find dozens of conversations about this if you search the threads and they all end with the same result: NOTHING.

Now, let's hope for some more N-regs next month!

First Delta A321
Radome print innacurate.
Cockpit side windows innacurate
Landing gear not inclined as it should be.
And must Be the picture but top of tail has a strange angle.

My humble opinion.
For especially these two points in particular, I see the issue.
Here's my opinion on the Delta 321s:

Yes the N339DN's vertical stabilizer has a strange angle, however judging by the other picture, the one for N391DN, (and other A321s so far) I believe that it's just a quality control issue for that exact model that was used for the photograph.
Landing gear incline, oof, that does look inaccurate for me as well. Gear shape looks fine, but A320 family's distinctive forward-pointing gear is not represented here. Not a big deal, but yes it is true.

It's still much better than Gemini's though.
Landing gear or cockpit windows may not be 100% accurate, however it's the most accurate one out there. I don't even have to say about their oversized engines.
To conclude, I am still beyond excited to get the model, even though it may have a few minor issues which is not too big of a deal for me anyway. Also this box design is simply stunning!

Thank you NG!
Nice job on the 757s as well; Perfect mould already, plus the livery looks great

My thoughts exactly! I was blown away when I saw those pics of the underside, especially the yellow Court with the orange belly.

A few years ago I replaced the bottom shelf in one of my cabinets with a mirror for just such an occasion. The Court Trike heading my way will definitely wind up here!

I know nothing about Court Line and am still tempted to order one or both (can't really buy just one of the pair, right?)

I do not agree. The shades of the Pink tristar (specially the dark belly one) are wrong. The shades should have to be more pastel pink and not salmon. As far as i can see in the photos of the NG models. Nobody has yet released a Court pink Tristar in the correct shades in any scale. Sorry to say... I used to see many times the real aircraft back then in the 70s. Go an see photos in google and you will understand what I mean. Look at good photos and avoid postcards. They never match the real colors and can confuse in shades. Pink is pink and not salmon. I think i still have the real references equivalent to RAL of nowadays I used some time ago when I built scale models.
The model is not bad (colors) but not accurate. The yellow one in more or less correct.

Last chance Aeroclassics...?

Jesus ! I'll say it one more time, possibly for the third time in a week ? Wait until you see the real models. NG have said they have possibly over saturated the photos of these releases, this month. They are notoriously difficult tones to reproduce in jpeg form. If it's wrong, it's wrong. We don't know that yet, but I certainly won't be judging anything by the photos available.

And do you really want the Aeroclassics TriStar over this one ?

For a photo from a different light setting, Waffle has photos of these Court models up on his site.

I think it's high time to add a disclaimer to every release photo thread regarding the color situation.

Yes, of course I will wait. I hope you are right... I have ordered the pink one.
I didnt know that was said before. I have not been posting here since long time.
I am not jujging ... only telling what my experience tells me about the photos. I have been building models many, many years, most of them paper models and I know very well how difficult is to convert a RAL reference into Pantone one for printing but I am used to do it and that is just because I know what I say. Anyway I hope you are right.
I prefer the NG Tristar but if colors are wrong and Aeroclassics releases one with the right shades I will buy one. These are very important for me.
I bought the Jet-X one long time ago cause there was no other one availabe at the moment
