Default 1/100 Graphideco 777-300 ER quality

Saw the 300 er models on Graphideco website and it seems they messed up the wing tips. The wing tips should be tapered more.

What is everyones' opinion on the quality of graphideco models?

I also noticed the 744 hump was somewhat too "square" toward the back end ?

Graphideco's Boeing models are not good but their Airbus models are.

Pacmin's Boeing models are very good but their Airbus models are ok.

I agree 100%. Saw the Graphideco A330 and it looks almost flawless, whereas the 777 nose looks like the A330.

I agree also. I have a few Graphideco models in my collection, including their Qantas A380, and I'm happy with all of them. Their Airbus models do tend to be a little better than their Boeings.

In my opinion, the Airbus narrow bodies of Graphideco are insufficient compared to the Pacmin version (cf below)...

I also agree.

Graphideco Airbus models are more accurate than their Boeing models.

Regards to all.

This is a 1/100 Pacmin A330-300. The model is moulded in one piece. I'm not aware that Monarch ever flew the-300, but its a nice model all the same.

Hi Neil

Are you sure it is a PacMin and not an AMI Phelps (or AMI for PacMin)? The wing detail and all-in-one makes me wonder, plus, I've got a similar AMI Monarch A330

Hi Richard.

Well it has what looks like bonafide Pacmin label on its underside, and the stand looks just like the one on the Pacmin Economy Plus models, but there's nothin 'Economy' about this model. Ashley did me a very good deal on it. When he first showed it to me, I thought it was more like a Graphideco model. I have one or two AMI Phelps models, and they have the same weight and feel to them as Pacmins do, my Monarch is much lighter. One of thei AMI models I have, is 1/100 A330-200. The wing surface detail is different, and the wings are detachable, although the stabs are not.The Monarch is one piece.

Neil.
