Cool What Dragon Wings models do you suggest?

I am going to Far East Shopping Centre's(orcahrd road) nikkotoy store tomorrow in Singapore, and I heard that place sells most of DW's models. What models do you guys suggest? I am getting DW planes since they are the only ones within my budget . I am looking for mostly wide-bodied aircraft but I would also like a 737. Anyone has any suggestions here? I will upload the photos here after I bought the models.

DW's best moulds are their 747s, DC10s and L1011 Tristars for the narrowbodies and their MD80-series for narrows.

I'd greatly recommend any of the above. My all time favourite DWs are all 747s - SAA, QF, ANZ etc. Very nice indeed.

Their 777s are a bit patchy and I dont rate their 737s at all.

..... No one mentions Dragon Wings' 727s? They are light years ahead of the butt-ugly things AeroKlassics passes off as 727s.

Ooops! I bought an Asiana B747-400 (soccer team livery) and China Eastern A340-600 Shanghai World Expo 2010 already . Each of the models were supposed to cost $75 each, but i was given a discount and they cost only $35 each now D. In the end I only needed to pay $70SGD. Nice!

I am glad you are happy with your purchase. IMO, that's a typical Singaporean sale. You get a discount off a grossly inflated price. That's why I hate shopping in Singapore.

Their B722 is superb, but I think we saw the last of them years ago.

I wish they would bring it back and start pumping out some of the popular liveries. They could even give me the definitive Dan Air!

I wish...

Every manufacturer has their own "flagship mould" and these are superior to their rivals.This is where I say Dragon has by far the most accurate B744 and L1011 moulds. And IMO no one can touch them on these!!
