Re: Herpa new A320 family mold.

Plastic landing gears are much easier to fix and replace, IMHO...

Re: Herpa new A320 family mold.

Literally reported from Wingsword (issue 5/October 2016):

Even Closer to the original
Nose gear of the 1/500-scale A320 becomes smaller
The Airbus A320's landing gear in the 1/500 scale has undergone a relaunch. The nose gear, which was previously nearly as big as the main gear, was reduced by 0,3 millimeters, now comes refined at a diameter of 1,8 millimeters, while it is 0,7 mm strong. Also, the strenght of the tires was also accurately reduced from 1,0 mm to 0,7 mm.

Re: Herpa new A320 family mold.

You are one lucky guy Charter
You don't even like the NG6 mold but you managed to get 2 models of the Egyptair:
an ugly noormal NG5 and an ultra rare NG6.

LOL indeed...

Anyway, the difference between NG6 mould nose gear and NG5 is huge

Re: Herpa new A320 family mold.

NG6 is how all A320s should look. The Cebu still has a giant ferris wheel in comparison.

Re: Herpa new A320 family mold.

What I dislike most are the horrible engine pylons on the NG V.
I acquired the Turkish A321 "discover the potential" and worked on one side of the model by reducing the pylon size and integrate it more into the wing:
Original pylon:
TC-JRG_R
Reduced pylon size:

TC_JRG_LN

I am thinking about to reduce it even a bit more.... What do you think?

The engines are also too large.

Re: Herpa new A320 family mold.

I think you should reduce even more! These engines are too close from the ground, because the pylons are too big! And also, shouldn't the engine be placed a bit more forward?
