Re: JC Wings A350 SIA models

Tonka, given your affiliation with JCW, I'd like to know if they are planning to re-issue this model but with a correct engine colour? Would you have any insight on this?

Re: JC Wings A350 SIA models

Thanks for the link.

Probably not a deal breaker to many but I will skip the current iteration of SQ A350 by JC due to the wrong colour used for the engine cowling. Even Eagle/Phoenix got it...

Re: JC Wings Dec 15 releases

NZ LOTR A320 for me. Personally, I would prefer to see more standard livery NZ models with Pacific Wave.
