Post GeminiJets 1:400 Lufthansa A340-600 D-AIHI Review

ANOTHA WON

Well GJ made a good effort this time with a simple model, the Lufthansa Airbus A340-600 in the new *cough* Eurowhite *cough* livery.

Let's get right into it...

Fuselage
The mostly white fuselage is beautifully shaped, and the details from which rows don't have windows to the registration and German Flag is impeccable, no flaws there. There are top aerials but no bottom aerials, a huge GJ detail issue everyone knows about.

Tail
The simple Lufthansa logo is clearly defined in this model, and the dark shade of blue is just like real life. However, at the front of the tail, there is a small hole that is a remnant from when the tail was placed in there.

Wings
The simple white wings have actual compressed areas where the flaps and slats would be, and the things behind the wings are there unlike the Air Canada CRJ9 from earlier. There is a very noticeable dark area where the wings were inserted and there is no attempt to cover it up.

Engines
The 4 engines don't have much to say about, except for the fact that the exhaust cone is silver out, instead of the black it normally is.

Gear
Gear is always the point of criticism. However so, the detail on the gear is great, the wheel size is perfect, and the gear rolls like GJ claims it always does. However, on the gear doors on the main gear, there are more than a few paint defects and scratches.


SCORING/100
No bottom aerials... -5
Small hole on tail -5
A hole on wing insert area -7
Engine exhaust cone poor paint job -5
Gear scratches -5

FINAL SCORE: 73/100

I have to say, this model was more on GJ's easy side, minimal detail and effort required for this Eurowhite, and it was a good effort on GJ's part.

I like this model a lot. In general Geminijets is doing a good job and they release many, if not to say most (not all!) of - I would like to call it "core" - models of Airlines current fleet.

Thank you!

Jan

I prefer the long time ago Dragonwings LH A346, it’s way much much better.
