Default The 747 issue

When you look at it closely, you see that the fuselage shape behind the wingroots is off on every existing 747 mould (incl. BB400). It is simply too round and where on the actual plane it is more edgy.



Come on NG, give us a good 747 - Yes, you can!

All the more reason for NG to get on with it and produce this tooling. About time I start replacing some passable 747s!

I haven’t noticed that much as I care more about the area that’s most shown off when displayed like the nose, and BB400 has had that area perfected since the dark ages. It sucks to see that modern manufacturers like Phoenix fail to notice this after they replaced the existing 744 mould they used to have which I thought was the best ever production in 1:400. Gemini and JC need a competitor for the 747.....
