Beautifull model. Congrats on your acquisition.
The Singapore Airlines livery looks so good on an A350. I never paid attention to this but as I look at your pictures I'm happy to see that hogan did not choose to go for inflight (bend) wings, as they do with the 787. In this case, you have also the option to display it "on ground". May I suggest something? I would buy the separate Hogan display stand (it is made of wood and metal) to put underneath. Your model will be so much more beautiful with it. I have equipped all my Hogans with it and haven't regretted this investment for a second.

That's a question I also had when I received a Avianca B787 from hogan as a present about a year ago.

Interesting assumption. I can see some logic in that, especially when you see the astronomical prices being asked (and apparently paid) for, say, 9M-MRO (Malaysia Airlines Flight 370) or HB-IWF (Siwissair Flight 111). At least that is what I have seen in the past...
