Default Question about Phoenix Models

Could anyone tell me if the Phonenix models are all metal, or do they have some plastic parts like dragon? Also is it my imagination, or do the wheels look bigger on Phoenix when compared to Gemini???

Sometimes they use the GJ mould. I suppose their 767 and MD-11s are GJ moulds.

MD-11 is definitely GJ mould, I am unsure about their 767, but mine look extremely similar. I would have to say that they use the same there, too.

Also, they share A330-200 mould with GJ.

No mate, it's the other way around. The MD-11 is most definitely NOT the Gemini mould (unless you are talking about a specific release I don't know about). Phoenix use Tucano's old MD-11 mould.

I believe you're right about the 767 and A330. Gemini and Phoenix share moulds for several aircraft.

All of Phoenix's new moulds, 777, 787, A380 and A300, feature rolling gears. This is why the tires are larger. Phoenix models made with older moulds use the same wheels as Gemini.
