Re: NG Model - 1:400 August 2020 Release "Hints"

Waffle's price on the 747SP is $51.95. I'll be curious to see other retailers, once they post their own pre-orders. So far, though, a pleasant surprise. Less than the expected $60+.

Yes and no, I'd say.

First releases on new tooling always have their teething issues. Details to perfect, tweaks to be made. A 1st attempt will never be as good as a 2nd, 3rd, 4th. This held true...

Re: August 2020 Aeroclassics

Bummer! Two months in a row pretty thin on any N-regs.

AC definitely playing to their strengths, this month; 721, 732, DC8, DC10. All among their best tooling.

Re: New NG Models Mould Review: Boeing 747SP

Re: August 2020 Aeroclassics

Aeroclassics has actually already done a Delta -300. Hard to find, I grant you. But, they have done one.

Also, I’m pretty sure AC no longer has access to the 733 tooling, regrettably.

Re: Updated Mould Review - Boeing 747SP

Absolutely. Most of those early-gen GJ SP's I never even bothered to get, the quality is just so poor. Can't really fault GJ, though, those models are all 20+ years old now.

If I collected moderns, that Alaska 737-900 would be top of the list. That's neat, to do the non-ER variant without winglets.
