Looks good. I know there are members on here who dislike Eurowhite but with a little colour I think it looks okay.

I like it as well. Little things like the green cabin door, break up the white.

I think the Green Tail, Blue Engines and Green Door make it pretty neat looking.

I don´t want to be the bad boy here but why did you choose the GJ mould? NG made this one as well and I think they have the better mould. No hard feelings.

I agree, the green colour gives a real 'lush' feeling to it. Looking at it (for me) makes me thirsty and craving for something sweet.
Reminds me of Aloha's new colours; simple, but catching to the eye and modern looking.

I probably shouldn't open a can of worms, but what specifically is wrong with the GJ mould? It looks fine in the photos.. maybe I'm missing something?

The giant wing seam, for one, since it's an ancient cradle mould. FlyingDog linked to Richard's reviews that tell the rest of the tale.

I bought the NG version, with the "1st 787" titles.

NG has the best looking 787 no doubt, but I at the same time, their new tooling for the main landing gear are way too low. The original were much too tall... would be perfect if they found a balance between the old and the new. However, the cockpit window printing is now much, much better!

The main problem with the GJ/old JC mould is the wingflex and the big cradle. The wings should be straight as the aircraft is designed in ground configuration.

Their 787-10 is decent imo.

Yes, Gemini uses the JC 787 for the -10 variant and when they do flaps up/down.

NG
Not as picky as some and I got it for under $40.00, looks great to me overall, not a rivet counter :-)
