Default Mould Review: Boeing 747LCF Dreamlifter

My latest mould review looks at the Boeing 747-400LCF Dreamlifter. There have been 3 moulds in 400 scale but the most recent and best is the new JC Wings effort, which gets a focus in this review:

Three moulds of this. Two moulds of the A330 Beluga.
It seems manufacturers aren't completely shy of taking a chance on models with limited livery options.

I live in hope that one day this will translate into a Ty-114.

Excellent review as always!
This DreamLifter (flaps not extended version) is on my list.


Is it too heavy? Cause I thought NG's BelugaXL was going to be hefty but it was not.

It is a bit heavier than the Beluga but not very heavy no. Sits on the stand fine.

I love the look of this model but I have to be slightly critical in two areas. The engine cowlings look good, however the 'hot section' looks naf! Also cockpit windows mid section are far too 'elongated' imo and this was also pointed out by Richard. The APU looks non existent from what I can see too. Barring these ( and if these got corrected) I'd be definitely ordering one!

Is it just me, or is the blue on the Dreamlifter noticeably dark, closer to a navy shade than a light blue on the real aircraft?

It does look a tad dark, but that could be lighting.

Excellent review Richard, you've convinced me that I need to have the flaps down version!
