Another disappointing set if I'm honest, dominated with the usual boring American rubbish. Come on NG, even GJ and pheonix are beating you with diversity lately.

That French registered A350 better be Air France and not Air Caraibes! Also looking forwards for that OY- A321, guessing it’s SAS in the old livery

Very interesting for Australia and the 747SP, but was a bit disappointed there were no LH, not really interested in any of these. But Overall, an interesting set of releases

Hoping the SP’s include VH-EAA delivery, (more than likely going by NG’s recent Instagram activity, plus that Phoenix 742 release which was definitely a prompted reaction); maybe the 2nd is VH-EAB and one of them has the 1982 Commonwealth Games logo on it? Otherwise yes, it could be Australian Asia Airlines or even a Qantas euro-white version. The N14XXX SP could be a United machine, either Saul Bass (small/big titles) or Battleship.

Are you sure that N16XXX, N25XXN, N48XXS, and N43XXS are 738s? Looks like they are United, Southwest, and Alaska 737-700s with maybe the alaska oneworld 739?

My apologies, I stand corrected, these look like the launch models for the new 737's and 739's moulds.

I reckon the G- and VH- 757-200s will be DHL birds and the 99- reg will be a C-32.


Keen to see what the A350s are.

I’m a little concerned about the -700s and -900s being rolled out so quickly after the molds were announced, especially since yesterday NG didn’t know the color of the Alaska 739. I’m hoping it’s not a repeat of the 747SP fiasco because these look like great releases

I'd buy both a Qantas delivery-livery 747SP and a United SP of any variant. But I hope the UA is a Saul Bass *large* titles, which I don't know of having been done in 1:400. Do please get the SP nose corrected. The problem (nose point too low!) has been identified, and it's very noticeable.

That may be all for me this month. I'd ponder an Aeroflot A350 to represent the new colors in my fleet. Disappointed that there aren't any L-1011's.

As far as I know. NG's American, Pan Am and South African SP's hasn't been reased yet here in Germany. I wonder if those new SP announcements will be delayed in their releases as well.

Perhaps as a special/limited release; but would love to see G-DRJC Boeing 752 "Braemar Castle" in the BA Landor scheme, leased from Monarch back in 1988/89. I understand the ship achieved notoriety in 2000 when hijacked at JFK whilst operated by National Airlines, all ended well thankfully. Still operational with FedEx I understand.

The American SP is definitely delayed but the Pan Am has been distributed from what I've seen of other retailers, including my own. Europe might be a bit behind with getting theirs perhaps? The outstanding SAA SP's were meant to be distributed in March but evidently this has been held up too, no word about this yet. I can imagine a bit of a backlog developing at this rate.

I got my SAA very early already, but I understand not all orders where fulfilled so far.

As much as I love the rest of NGs 747SP, but the more I look at the two I already have the more I hope they'll retool the nose. I'd gladly take another SAA then. And a Saul Bass.

I ordered my Pan Am 747SP through JetCollector (Calif. - USA) and still haven't received a shipment notice.

I ordered mine via Hobby House in Malaysia. They’ve got the Pan Am/Gulf Air/Air Lanka releases but the American has held up my order. I see Waffle has the Pan Am SP in the USA, his own pics are on the DB now.

My shipment of Pan Am arrived Monday and all shipped next day.

EU shops tend to be a few weeks or more behind in some cases so be patient. Their customs checks tend to go wildly beyond anything I'll ever deal with and stuff can be held for a while.

I'm only interested in these 3 models at the moment (if they match the official releases).
I also want an Aeroflot A359, but their registrations start with VQ. Wondering if it was a typing error because I couldn't find any A359 at jetphotos.com which registration starts with VP.

Edit: Just checked at airfleets.net and saw several VP registered A359s on order for Aeroflot (that's why there were no pictures). So I'll be adding that one to my list.

My predictions (see attachment below):

Just got my NG orders.

PA GF UL AS 2xAA

Everything was good except one of the boxes flap had a slight tiny scratch. Ugh why can’t NG make sure the boxes are perfect!

Jokes aside, I’ll definitely pick up the QF and UA SP’s.

When will we see a Cathay L1011? Also waiting for the Eastern L1011 full chrome.

About the nose point, would you like to show me with pictures?

We decided to clear up all those backlogs at our new factory from JUN.

The American SP is definitely delayed but the Pan Am has been distributed from what I've seen of other retailers, including my own. Europe might be a bit behind with getting theirs perhaps? The outstanding SAA SP's were meant to be distributed in March but evidently this has been held up too, no word about this yet. I can imagine a bit of a backlog developing at this rate.

I got my SAA very early already, but I understand not all orders where fulfilled so far.

As much as I love the rest of NGs 747SP, but the more I look at the two I already have the more I hope they'll retool the nose. I'd gladly take another SAA then. And a Saul Bass.

Sorry for that, May I have a look at the un-perfect box?

Other Tristar(s) will come when our new factory comes into operation from Jun.

Everything was good except one of the boxes flap had a slight tiny scratch. Ugh why can’t NG make sure the boxes are perfect!

Jokes aside, I’ll definitely pick up the QF and UA SP’s.

When will we see a Cathay L1011? Also waiting for the Eastern L1011 full chrome.

Check the thread "NG Model 1:400 February 2021 Release Photographs" response number 167. User IflyHA put a photo of an actual 747SP nose with a photo of one of the model 757SP nose, with lines to indicate the difference. I couldn't do any better than that.

Another month, another boat load of American stuff. The OY-xxx is SAS which I’m happy about as I’d like to get the old livery a321.

I’m not too sure about the 99-reg 757, my guess would be Air Force 2 but I’m not too sure.

I may be tempted by the Aeroflot a350 but I’ll see.

Whilst I’m happy to see an sas a321, it’s annoying the Americans get attention over Europe After 3 quite heavily saturated releases fro American carriers. Ah well, I’m saving up for a new camera anyway so i could do with a month off

I don't think the often mentioned window line is printed too high.

It's the nose cone (tip of the nose) that sits too low on your tooling.


I remember this issue was raised by others very early at sample stage already but I didn't see it. Now I do everytime I'm looking at my SPs.

Would be awesome if you could correct this on your SP and have this correct on your coming 747Classics.(?)

Oh ok. In the NG February Release thread, it says that the delayed American SP will be rolled out with the April releases? So does this now mean that both the American & South African SP’s won’t be distributed until June?

Great to see the two SP's ive been waiting for: United ( Saul Bass hopefully) and Qantas delivery.
On another note and yes I know this has been covered, maybe its just me but I really cant see what this big issue is with the SP nose? When I look at a Phoenix 74,I see straight away the thing is wrong! It's blatantly evident. However if i'm honest, I cant seem to see where the nose is wrong on NG! Just saying!!
