Default New Panda preorders?

Saw a post on FB advertising new Panda releases in a Ryanair 737, a DHL, Koryo, and 2 Cubana Cargo 204s.

Anyone else see that? Are Panda and NG mould sharing?

I see them too. The Ryanair is a 737-700.

There was previously some mention of a disagreement between NG and Panda over the Tu-204. The details were lacking. I doubt this is the NG mould so that would make 3 Tu-204 moulds in production or planning. That's a bit much!

Ordered the Ryanair. Still hoping for a non wingleted 737-800 in the first livery it wore some day or even a 737-200 in that livery before it went to the billboard style. We got a 1/200 737-200 not too long ago but a big gap in Ryanair history in 1/400 while Phoenix and others continue to pump out more of the current scheme

If this is the case, I couldn't agree more. One set of Ty-204 moulds would surely suffice for the limited liveries available. To think that some of the effort expended in the other two could have been put into a Ty-114 or something else new makes wonder just WTAF the management of these manufacturers is thinking...
That said, instead of being a new mould, is it possible that Panda had obtained a stock of blanks from NG before their falling out?

Oh they go to alternate forums and sites, not just the "All Hail Richard Forum" cause he thinks he knows everything, go to a site that has them listed and purchase. Seems easy enough but your ego is in need of inflating so I understand completely.

Well, I don't think NG and Panda would share moulds to each other. They are definitely competitors!

It's doing marketing to his site, I don't see nothing wrong.... If the people don't like, don't see.

I don’t see the problem here either. Yes, it is sometimes painful having to visit another website that is just hyperlinked on this forum on a certain topic. But this is not only with Richard and his very comprehensive website with always interesting and most of the times unbiased in-depth reviews of model releases and new moulds. It goes for everyone who is posting pictures of his latest purchase and just provides one (or even no) photo here but just the link to FlickR and other sides.

You definitely do not need to like Richard or his way of reviewing but his work is outstanding and provides one of the most complete and unbiased collection of model reviews and news.

It looks like the Panda Model Tu-204s are nearly ready. Check out the latest blogpost for some first look images and commentary here:

The point I was trying to point out is, if a collector is interested in a model then you go to a site that is selling the model, then without a biased review a collector can purchase the model instead of hunting one down because they where reading what he had to say.

Your point was well-recognized. Still, you are talking about ‘biased reviews’ which is not the fact concerning Richard’s website. In your most recent post, however, you are no longer talking about the (rather general) pain having to be redirected from one site to another but exclusively about www.yesterdaysairlines.com, so I guess you’re having an agenda (A. Klein quoted).
