Great models - just a small 737 issue: the cockpit is slightly too low and partly printed on the nosecone.

Are there any more pictures expected? Does this mean the Malaysian, and the Vistara are delayed?

The NGM website is showing both models delayed, hopefully included in the next release.

The Alia looks pure white, which is a pity. NG Models, what about a discount off a future JY-AGB release for loyal AGA customers?

It is collectors like you making manufacturers believe, that QC is no issue at all in their production process.

And when you say that "this issue is barely visible", or "You do not look at the models that close" ....I would like to ask you why do you collect 1/400 at all, when you don't look at the models....or why you don't stick to Matchbox's "as close as it gets" models....

What that little "tiny" or so so small detail. Are you going to lose sleep over that? "WOW"

I think he is just pointing out a possibly small printing error. I personally didn’t see it but you have to appreciate little suggestions for improvement. I remember when NG first made the. 737-800 and the landing gear was too high and looked odd. It was thanks to collectors informing NG of this issue that it got changed so I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss constructive criticism or “nitpicking” if it gives us higher quality models then I am all for it

Back on topic, I’m loving the look of that etihad 787, would love to see a regular livery one in the future!

737 Cockpit windows are acceptable to me. They look fine.

Nice models! It seems they have improved the gradient effect on the UA's Evo Blue tail.

Off topic: Does anyone know when we will get June's hints? We'll get to see what NG has prepared for June "early next week", as they stated in one of their Instagram's posts.

How about those Alaska 737-900s? Apparently they’re being released alongside these releases?

I think you should consider those cancelled!

I do agree with European Collector that the cockpit windows on the 73Gs are a little low so I don't see any need to pillory the guy on this one.

Well as we are nitpicking, it looks like they are still doing the engine hot sections and exhaust cones all in one colour on the 737s. They get it right on the 787s though. Go figure.

I saw that too! As a matter of fact, I contacted the retailer from which I have 3 NG Alaska 737-900s on pre order from and they said the Alaska models were arriving alongside the NG May releases so they can't be canceled.

Just a question: is the first pax door on the Alia a little bigger than the other two...?

I can't really tell. I think the striping might be creating an optical illusion.

We had this a few months ago with the AC Caravelles. If you take a photo of a chrome belly against a white surface the belly will reflect it. It certainly isn't grey paint as it looks completely different to the Worldways and the model's own wing join fairing. It is possible they have used silver paint like AC has started to do with their DC-10 tails but I doubt it. I think it is natural metal.

I know we had this with the AC Caravelle but what makes me believe this is indeed spray painted silver (never said anything about grey) is the stripe below the white colour. This stripe is normally printed onto a model to create a crisp edge. It looks as if the silver and the grey WBF were added on top of that.

Ah well we're arguing at cross purposes then as the person originally commented said grey not silver paint. You might be right - on the belly I doubt it makes much of a difference

It probably doesn't but proves NG haven't been able to fix the polishing issue with this mould. But if they don't I will appreciate a standard livery LTU Tristar 500 with a spray painted belly over no release at all.

...which is a shame, as the artwork prepared for this release indicated that it might have been! NG have posted their release pics on Instagram, and I did ask them about this on there, but no response so far.

Has anyone received their May 2021 releases yet? I’m still waiting on mine to be shipped out.

My trio arrived yesterday. I can confirm that the Alia L-1011 does appear to have a painted silver belly rather than natural metal.

Suggests the issues with metal finishes on the L-1011s continues. I think it looks fine on this model but not sure what it means for a nmf Eastern?

I agree that the silver paint is not a deal killer. The white colour is a different matter, though. I presume JY-AGB will be done with the correct blueish off-white in the near future. I have not cancelled my order for JY-AGA and would appreciate a special deal for loyal customers once another Royal Jordanian Tristar is released.

I would be surprised if they do JY-AGB in the same scheme. I'm not sure how a special deal for loyal customers would work either as you're not buying from NG. As with any other brand I think you'll just have to accept errors when they are made.

The expectation that NG are going to make special accommodations is probably a little far fetched nowadays. They may have once but they aren't the small startup they were back in 2018.

They've already hinted at a similar release and JY-AGB is not 100% the same scheme, it's orange titles instead of red ones.

NG could offer the second release at a lower rate to retailers. They could even turn this into a social media campaign with owners of JY-AGA uploading a creative photo of the model to their social media channels. But I also doubt this will happen.

Yeah did anyone ever see the 2nd batch of Iranian SPs that I recalled was suggested would happen for those with production issues?
