Re: Retailers in Singapore?

I don't remember a store in 5 min walk from the Intercontinental in the last 5 years. Where was it? Bugis Junction?

Re: JC Wings 1/400 Royal Jordanian Old Livery

I think this a Blue Box release, not JC.

Re: Aeroclassics AUG releases

A scale model certainly needs to look like 1:1, which is kind of the definition of a scale model, but it won't look identical. Big difference.

I agree. On the real plane, the dots are use to create a shade of colors to save on paint/printing costs. Substituting the effective color at 1:400 is perfectly fine, even if PHX managed to get the...

Re: 1/400 Hogan official ANA 787-8 JA801A "1st Delivery"

Ok, so I will argue it: how can a model with wings bent above the fusalage like that be more realistic than the Phoenix model?

I will not buy a model with wings like that, simple as that.

Re: Phoenix B744 New Mould?

All I am saying is that the vast majority of the PH releases are modern, current liveries. I just can't see it making financial sense for them to develop an all new 747-400 mould.

The whole picture is much darker, look at the sky background. So my guess is that the "American" flag is not American, but that the oversaturated blue washes out the yellow bits.

Possibly. The price of a gallon gas had gone up by $1.50 in the last couple of months. So if will cost you almost exactly the price of a 1:400 model more to fill up a 20 gallon tank.
