F-Toys New Releases

F-Toys have released the JASDF B747-400 and the upcoming B777-300ER, both scale 1:500.
The rest of the batch contains other JASDF aircraft (C-130, YS-11, Chinook), but unfortunately in other scale.


Just have these pictures.

The 777 comes with a pushback tug (with towbar) and the 747 comer with stairs truck.

Re: F-Toys New Releases

Im not familliar with this brand. do all the older ftoy releases (JAL) have the same landing gears as this one? The front landing gear looks like herpa OG in this picture...kinda makes it look toyish.

Re: F-Toys New Releases

Nice to see a new release from F-Toys, even if I would have hoped for some more 787 an A350 or other models in 1:500.

Yes the landing gears on these are the same as earlier releases.

Re: F-Toys New Releases

F-toys have released many interesting models which, when made by other manufacturers, are either difficult to buy or very expensive. But I do not like their quality, therefore I have not bought any. They look "toyish". Am I wrong?

Hi!
F-Toys is a japanese manufacturer of several models (ships, planes, helicopters, etc).
They release commercial planes in scale 1:500, but always from Japanese airlines.
Their models are made of plastic, and usually don't have much quality, specially the gears. However, they may be cheap sometimes and much easier to collect than Hogan releases.

Yes, they may look toyish but a few modifications would make them look rather good. And they can also be used in dioramas, I bet they would look nice

Re: F-Toys New Releases

I have a JAL DC-10 and an ANA L-1011 and both looks great, except for the gears, which are still a way better than the OGs.

Re: F-Toys New Releases

I'm more interested in the ground equipment that come with the planes...

Re: F-Toys New Releases

Here they are! On my oppinion they are very well done, print wise, except for the cockpit windows. Regarding moulds, they are great, even better than the diecasts in many ways. The wings have very fine recessed lines for the slats, flaps, spoilers and panels, and the stabs in the same way; the engines are very well done, the JT9D-59s of the DC-10-40 are perfect, the RB-211s of the L-1011 are very good, but I don't know if the exhausts are that long, I have to check. Fuselage shape and size are great on both, they have thin panel lines and even come with antennas. The down side are the junction line and the landing gears, those on L-1011 are better than on DC-10. The ANA L-1011 have decals for the fuselage and wings regs, I haven't applied then yet, where the DC-10 seems to have come with the regs from the factory. Pity they became rare, I really would have picked more!

Re: F-Toys New Releases

Indeed, the DC-10 and L-1011 are better than I expected. Thanks for sharing the photos.

Re: F-Toys New Releases

You can even say that the L-1011 is 1:200 scale and not 1:500
That Tristar is probably the most well done F-Toys 1:500 model i've seen so far.

Herpa have lot of things to learn...
