Default PHOTO : Aeroclassics - A320 - Air France

Due to a request, here are some pics of this very nice model, the best 1/400 A320 IMO.

The mould seems to be very good.

Thanks for sharing.

With that too bulbous nose, no way this is the best A320. Even the nose on the GJ/PH is better. I do love the seamless wings joints, though.

But where is the Euro flag from the vert. stabilizer? EDIT: Oh, it's there, but it's placed too low and too faint. I didn't even see it with my laptop's brightness turned down.

In addition, the overwing emergency exits are very noticeably too far forward compared to the location of the wing. Not sure if that's a printing issue or if the wing was just placed too far aft. I'm too lazy to look that closely at the pics to figure it out right now.

I think that's right, the problem is that the wing join area is an undefined blob on the model, while it's supposed to have a sharp crease. The model pictured also has a broken left wing fence, but of course, that could be just this particular sample.

It's nose is far better than GJ. Try comparing my pics with shots at similar angle of the real thing (not like the one you provided). Printing is another issue, it may not be perfect on this model, but I don't know many which are.

Fair enough, here's a picture from the (almost) same angle:



Everybody can form their own opinion, but too me the nose is fat the same way a BlueBox 747-400 has a fat nose. That said, overall, it's a good model and I'd buy it if they released models fitting my criteria.

Hi all, this is my first post in DAC.

I am really impressed to say the least with this mould. When I heard they where going to make the A320 I wasn't so sure, but now I have high hopes for many UK & European charter liveries. I hope the V2500 powered version will also be modelled.

Please lets see some subjects like these;

Excalibur Airways, Inter European Airways, BCM Airlines (both liveries), JMC Air, Air 2000 (all liveries) and so on.
