Default NG New Moulds

Hello

NG started the year by saying they are going to introduce a number of new moulds. We now know 3 of them will be -600/700/900. I’m so excited about this news! More is to come and would like to see if there’s any additional insight into the next set of introductions. This is not intended to a be wishlist thread but instead thoughtful insight into the direction NG will take with the new moulds. For instance, I think they will expand their 747 offering given their current SP mould success. What else makes sense - 777 maybe?

I think the 747 classic is a given, it's been hinted at and rumoured enough already. What else there might be, I've no idea. If I was to express a preference I'd like to see a DC-10 with antenna and modern gear that doesn't fall off as easily as AC's does. And whilst it may not be a popular choice, a modern tooling for Concorde would be great, including prototypes and pre-production offerings.

I think, due to the fact creating an entirely new mould is expensive and time consuming business, itll be variations of the aircraft theyve got moulds for already. Such as a 757-300, 787-8, A340-200/300 etc etc

Id imagine there will be only 1-2 completely new ones, if any.

I’d suspect an A320 and/or A319 mold will be coming out too. That’s been another highly requested mold as imo Gemini’s is quite trash at times.

This leaves up to 7 new moulds. I'm assuming a few of these will be 1/200.

Based on existing moulds, possibilities include: 757-300 and 747-100/-200, A35K, and/or some variation of the A330 mould (-NEO, or A340?). Perhaps the A320/A319? Doubt the 747-300/-400 will happen this year since would each require new tooling.

I've seen them hint at the 777 several times on their Instagram, and the 767 for 2021 on here (although I'd bet the latter won't happen this year.)

I hope they produce the rest of the A320 family. For the rest, I'd say they will do variants of the existing moulds: 787-8, 747 variants and 757-300, A350-100. Perhaps some CRJsas totally new moulds?

I reckon we will see a 757-300 mould as that one has been mentioned before. I reckon we will also see the 787-8, possibly the a350-1000 and an a319/20.

All in all, I don’t think we will see anything that’s never been done before but I’ll be happy with any new moulds that no makes.

True. I know it probably won't happen but it would be great if one of them is a DC-9-10.

The fact they have the A321 already makes me believe this for sure.

I really hope they do a bunch of regionals like the CRJ's and Dash 8's since I think Gemini/JC have those exclusively. I could be wrong though but I haven't seen anyone else release an RJ on their own

Nope the Aviation400 one is excellent as well. So there are two great moulds plus the decent Phoenix.

The undercarriage makes the PHX more a toy, than a collector item.

And they can manage to print cockpit windows correctly only half the time... throws the whole model off if the cockpit windows aren’t correct.

Doubtful. Only operator was Air Inter then you had a prototype-liveried one at one point; highly doubt this would make NG any money when you only have a couple options.

Also if they were to do an aircraft of such obscurity it would probably be another one based from China.

The wheels look more accurate on the JCW mould, and AV400 does not offer a 1/400 777-200/ER. The one which offers the most liveries. And from this one it is not too far to a -300/ER.

I agree that there are basically enough 777 moulds. But! JCW and AV400 take forever to get one out. That could change with NG.


But I would be in favor of PHX redesigning their 777 mould. They put out a 777 almost every month. They are also not afraid to choose a different carrier than asian carrier.



Especially US and European Carrier are missing on a good 777 mould. I don't count Gemini among the good guys.

I agree it's doubtful, but hey if they made a Beluga then they can make something that more people actually might have flown on.

A342/3? They already got the A332/3 fuselage. Maybe an extension of it to be an A345/6??? I'd get Azerbaijan, Iberia, and South African if they made A346s.

741/2s; I've heard many rumors on these and they already have the SP.

753 as well I've heard, but not confirmed

767s would be cool as well, to complement the 757 selection.

I agree that we really don't need more 777s; AV400, Phoenix, and JC have great 777s

744 would be cool as well. The only great -400 mold we have now is the JC. Would be great to see a competitor for them to churn out more Queens.

Some Russian molds would be cool too, like the IL-86 or IL-62s, but I'm not expecting much in terms of Russian models.

Take off the A320 engines and put on some D-30's, cut off the wing fences and you're set.

My opinion is that everything manufactured to date can be improved upon. It seems clear to me that if NG is willing to manufacture something as obscure as the Honeywell Testbed 757, there's nothing preventing them from venturing into the DC8, DC9 and 727 market and so on.

To be honest, there is only ONE good one.... the JCW mould.
I disagree.

The JCW/GJ mould is tired and the releases I had been hoping for recently have been very disappointing, enough for me to pass on them reluctantly.

A universal engine size for every release, disproportional componants, fit and finish issues.

The GE90-115B is the largest jet engine on the planet, and not one of these 777 moulds have spinning fan blades.

A new 777 casting from NG would be more than welcome, among other things like the 747-1/-2/-3/-400 and -8.

JC and GJ never shared 777 molds I believe. JC uses slot-ins and GJ has used the old cradle style for a while.

JC Air India 777-300ER (Prairie Exclusive)

vs

GJ Air France 777-300ER


It is quite obvious the JC mold is far superior than the GJ mold

This detailed review highlights just how decent the top 3 777 moulds are (ignoring Gemini completely). Spinning fanblades is such a bull**** feature as long as the engines are see through, which all these are:

There is absolutely no need for anymore 777 moulds. Gemini just needs to use the JC Wings one more often.

MD-80 yes yes yes please!
Be grateful that you 777 fans have a mould that actually gets used, you're lucky if GJ release 1 MD-80 a year.

But didn't you notice that manufacturers mostly concentrate on the 300ER....? Only PHX provides a constant output of 200/ERs. So maybe there is a way for a new -200 mould - and from that it isn't very far to a 777-300/ER.
