Re: Gemini 777-9 mould

Don't know where you've got this from, but this image is far away from depicting an A350's window shape. So I would be highly careful with such "accurate" comparisons. An 350's window isn't that big....

Re: April 2021 Aeroclassics?

I see nothing wrong other than poor photography.
What else should a polished metal surface reflect if you place it on white/light grey?

The only "747-400D lookalike" -300s went to Air India, Thai's TGD had the 400's CF6-80, but the "classic" fairing.
Still a nice model, the cockpit withstanding.

The one with the navigator's glass nose has its radar in an extra "hump" in front of its nose gear. Panda accurately has that detail so that there are differences in mould.
