That thing looks ugly. Not to mention they have yet to even order it. 2 thumbs down.

Thumbs down Not for me!

I'm not a big fan of that paint on that plane. Seems the bigger the plane...the worse those all-white schemes look. Maybe the real thing will look better...but the model looks blah.

To my knowledge, JAL has not ordered the A380 ??

So this is a fantasy model. Waste of time.

This model looks ugly. The 380 isn't the best looking plane to start with but in the JAL scheme even worse. No thanks.

Thumbs down C&C Mould

This model looks Identical to the C&C release. Only thing that looks different is the colour of the wing but all other areas are exactly the same. I find it strange that Big Bird would copy this mould and not refine it. Not a fan of a fantasy plane. who knows what changes will be made on the real deal when it comes out. For instance they could decide to do away with something large like the winglets. Then we would all have bogus models for sure! By the time this thing flies JAL could end up with a variation to its livery! Big Bird needs to make a DC-10 and L1011!

I already have one that's similar, LH. I wouldn't mind a CX or an all-white.

I read in an article that JAL and ANA do not intend to purchase the A380 at this point in time. Funny why BB would want to do the plan in the JAL livery, when are are quite a numbr of other options.

Default A380

Some sources say they are not BigBird! They are NETMODELS!!

Several A380 are coming up in different Braniff cs.

That´s stupid. I´d love to see 707 or 727s of Braniff but no A380s.

What about an AN225 or TU144 in Air Jamaica c/s

or PanAm IL62 ??

I absolutely agree...What a waste of a new mould. On a seperate note...where can I preorder a PanAm IL-62?
