Default F-GEXA just landed

Simply gorgeous, fantastically good.

I remember that the possibility was explored to have moveable thrust reversers ...

It could be attractive but I am not sure it is a good idea, the configuration flaps AND SLATS deployed when the thrust reversers are activated is not correct.
To avoid excessive loads on the slats, they automatically retract when the thrust reversers are used.

The other problem is the spoilers which are extended ...

The model is excellent no need to go further.

This is my second aircraft with the slats deployed, the first one was ... a custom Handley Page 42.

Sorry, I can't resist to add a picture.

Jean Pierre.

Sorry for picture 4...

The addition of slats & flaps to me, is the best progression yet of the level of detail we can get on these castings...thanks for sharing Capt

Very nice. I have the Farewell to the Queen flaps down.

Really like the B744 mold and the flaps/slats are icing on the cake.

Congratulations Jean Pierre. A lovely model and flaps deployed look great on both HP and the 744
