Re: JC400 PT II Late January Announcement

Just guessing, but it wouldn't be too costly to produce a new 744F fuselage mould, given all the other pieces are common to JC's new 744 pax mould?

Re: Phantom's photo phread

Alex, couldn't help but noticed that the engine pylons on the NG are stamped L1, L2, R1, R2 on the inside - what's up with that?

Re: JC400 Late December Arrivals and Future Releas

Excellent suggestion! There's a lot of bare metal on this scheme, let's hope whichever manufacturer takes this up does their research and does it right for all of the collectors.

Re: October 2020 Aeroclassics release chart

I'm typically fine with cargo door lines missing, those never bothered me. They usually end up being too thick in 1/400 anyway.

Of course one can argue that 200R looks close enough to 200B. Go far...

Re: Detailed 1:400 Scale Model Reviews

A quick 2 minute Google search confirms your suspicions. The wings and horizontal stabilizers were, indeed, consistent with what we'd expect of an ex-LH 747 - painted white.
