Default Phoenix secret releases

I have the following samples of A330-300 and A340-600 from PH. Enjoy the pictures. The new mould features the new landing gears.
Sorry about the quality of the photos.

Which one is the new mould? or are they both new?
How do you like the new gears on those?

Thanks for your reply,
John

The new PHX A340 600 mould looks gr8 but bely and the wings color is too dark i suppose ? and the wings has a strange angle like flexing? The Dragonair s are wonderfull. I like them. Hope to see the PHX TURKISH A330 300 with new mould

I think that strange color is because of a wrong white balance of the picture.
Have to see it in "real life", but the belly seems to be a little dark indeed.

The only thing you could tell from these pictures with some kind of certainty is the shape of the model

First impression was i thought they are all custom made diecasts, they are too prefect in details. Plss Check the A330 wings. I know that PHX going to release them and They have to be the PHX samples. The quality of the pictures is not good and Yes i have to admit that we have to see them in real life SOON

Phoenix has been spitting out tons of 1:400s I am interested in buying. Right now, there are 8 Phoenix 1:400 models that will play key parts in my YYZ Collection. They're doing great right now! Keep up the good work, Phoenix!!!

The A330 looks very nice but why oh why can't they fix the issue with the rear windows? The last 12 or so rows should start to angle upwards.

Great to see a new A330 mould. It looks like the winglets look much better in this version than in previous versions. But how about a (long overdue) new 747-400 mould?

Great to see that they revised their 330 nose and now it doesn't look like a dolphin's beak. I am very happy to see that they added rubber wheels which gives the model a more realistic look as well. What I hope to see is Phoenix introducing these wheels to their A343 because I am pretty annoyed by the main gear imbalance on some.

Do these models come in a white or a nondescript box like the CX ones?

Good to see a new mould, but I'd prefer the Swiss A340-300 in its standard elegant livery though.

Thanks for the pictures, Alaska Fan! My only gripe is that the landing gear sits way too high... like the fuselage is on stilts. Either way, I'm sold.

the a340-600 looks awesome, but what the heck have they done with the A330?!

The main bogies are a shocker. look at the spacing between the front and rear axles?! it just doesnt look right.

Previously I have said that Phoenix will release this 25th Anniversary aircraft a long time ago...

They're gorgeous!

Thumbs up Re: Phoenix secret releases

Very nice indeed! I'm afraid I might have to get all of them!
I wonder if we'll see regular livery Cathay Pacific and Thai International A330-343Es soon? Or even some re-releases on these nice new moulds? The Dragonair '20th Anniversary' and Cathay's 'Progress Hong Kong' would be good, as the originals are almost impossible to get nowadays!
Well done Phoenix, lifting the A330 and A340 family up to the standard of your first class B777s!

These models haven't even made it to the regular retailers and already a few of us have got their hands on them? Not even Ebay has them, when will they be available for purchase?

And to the people who have these beauties, is the box a white/nondescript box like the CX models?

Great! I have received the 2 Dragonair models!

The difference between the new mold & the old A330 mold:
1.) New radar radome marking
2.) Thinner winglet
3.) New landing gears
4.) New "speedbrakes" on the A330 wings which were previously missing
5.) Presence of Rolls-Royce Trent 772's Low Pressure Turbine (LPT) fan from the back of the engine.
6.) New belly that is bigger & more accurate

Perhaps Phoenix should release the new 777-300ER mold with the missing 5th speedbrake panel? An enlarged GE90-115B as well?

Have you ever been up-close to an A33x mlg? They are clunky to say the least specifically due to how they operate as a unit on the 1:1.

We beg and beg for more details and then biiitch and moan when they try to give us what we want.
Perhaps the miserable complainers should quit the hobby so we don't have to keep reading about the biiitching and moaning and saying how they're gunna leave the hobby all the time.

Boy am I glad my ebay purchase of the Dragon Wings Lufthansa A340-600 just fell through! Preordered D-AIHF. Looking really good!

I'll definitely get B-HYF. I've flown on it twice!

Wait a second. Is this Phoenix's first LH model? I wonder if this will be a one-off, or not. I'd actually like the LH on the A333 mold, too.
