Re: HYJL Wings August 2020 releases

To be honest these are hardly aimed at the collector outside of China, although I agree I already own 2 of the 3 on the Panda mould and am not especially keen to replace them.

Re: HYJL Wings August 2020 releases

You are no doubt 100% correct this'll be the NG mould.

HYJL have been back for a while as they released Cathay Dragon, Spring and Juneyao NEOs a month or two ago.

Re: Zinc Rot Explained

Cheers. Is that Zinc rot though or just the paint bubbling? The actual mould seems ok.

Re: Phoenix 400 August/July Releases

Agreed I would too if they print the cockpit properly. There aren't many Phoenix 777s that aren't being made by JC or AV but this BA 777 is one and quite tempting.

Re: 747-400 mould

Not in my opinion. As I say in the video if you prefer seamless and the engine pylon join really upsets you go for Dragon but the Dragon printing and undercarriage is a bigger bugbear for me.
