VERY VERY NICE!!!
I saw the pair not long back in a HAECO hangar in HKG not too long back. I must say the model looks (or rather your pics make it look)much better than the 1:1 :P
Great pics as usual!
Cheers

Looks very nice. I like the golden tail, but wish they had added some detail to the fuselage. I was tempted in buying this model.

Its clearly the newer GJ mould. The no.1 engine is a dead give-away

I think you'll find that the Phoenix version will use the same mould as this one since both PH and JC/Flightline use the newer GJ mould which is rubbish. As has been pointed out, look at the no. 1 engine and the cockpit windows are simply shocking.

Rather get this on DW or AV400 tooling.

SO, while we're on the subject...

What is with Atlas in a passenger configuration? And what about that scheme?

Well, that explains things.
It's Atlas, but it isn't.

Thanks for the info!

Dude, I'm sorry to have to say this, but you're completely wrong.

1. Phoenix uses a different 747-400 mould than GJ and JC.

2. Except for the no. 1 engine issue, this mould is quite good, much better than the Phoenix and the AV400 ones. The shape of the upper deck on the AV400 is terrible.

I'd like to know how you came to that conclusion. If you just overlay one of the model's photos (I hope you don't mind, Agent X20) with a picture of the actual plane at a similar angle, you'll see the shape of the upper deck on the AV400/JC 744 is almost perfect.

Someone said that just by looking at engine #1, they could tell this was GJ.

How come GJ has this problem?

Please excuse my ignorance but I am not a "full time" collector. However, I do want to purchase this particular model. My questions to you experts are as follows:

1) Who is Flightline and JC Wings? Are they the same company?
2) Is there another manufacturer of this model who may have better quality?

So which model in your opinion has the best quality.

Thanks in advance.

The AV400 mould really is terrible. There is a depression on the upper deck that makes it look like someone popped it with a needle:

With a macro-lens, every imperfection is magnified. I seriously doubt anybody would normally notice that.

True, no mould is perfect. I guess it just depends on whether you're willing to overlook these 'blemishes' or not.

Right, personally a rather a dimple in the roof, that you only see if you are eye level with the model, than the #1 engine pointing skywards, which is a deal breaker in my book. It was enough for me not to buy the DL 747.

The depression in the AV400 is completely noticeable without the macro lenses.
I have the ANA version and it's the only AV400 I will ever buy unless they fix this stand-out error. It is not a good mould and the JC/GJ is substantially better.
IMO the JC/GJ is the best 744 in the hobby at the moment seeign as DW rarely use theirs now.

Besides, fix the no 1 engine on the JC by applying a bit of pressure. Nothing scientific about how to correct that issue.

'Dude', do a few checks before saying people are wrong. My QF 747-400 Socceroos is on the same crap mould as my Phoenix Korean Air 744. Yes the QF was done on the PH mould then. But it looks as if GJ stuck their wing tooling to the PH mould. The only difference now between the PH and GJ 744 mould is that PH have elimnated the wing seem and GJ use the old wing with very basic engine pylons as shown in the pictures above. Both moulds still have the exact same wonky cockpit and oversized tall landing gear.

The AV400 mould isn't terrible. Even with its 'dent' the mould is still better than the PH/GJ 747.

At last, some words of wisdom.
