1:500 ANA A380 Flying Honu

My mom just went on an international ANA flight, and got this model for me as a gift. I think this model looks really good. However, I think the front windows are a little bit too big. I think it looks best when viewed from the side. What do you guys think?

Re: 1:500 ANA A380 Flying Honu

The engines are a bit toyish and the wingtip fence could be sharper, but it looks good! Too bad it doesn't come with gears.

Yes, I really like it. I was surprised the model was metal since my Star Wars model was plastic.

Oh yeah - it's an ANA In-Flight/buy-on-board sales exclusive to promote their Honu-Hau service to HNL (Inaugural flight is May 24th, 2019, so later on this month). The initial test flight was supposed to have happened in mid-April. ANA is up-gauging their current service (on 787-9 Dreamliners) to serve more Japanese tourists (and considering how many of them I ran into in Waikiki, totally justified) and challenge JAL's more frequent current flights (done on 767-300ERs and 787-8s).

I wonder who did the molding for them? The engine pylon/pod shaping does not look like the recent 1:500 model from F-Toys (engine pod look a tad too big and the tail fin fairing looks a little large as well). I wonder if they had Socatec shrink their 1:250 for them for this one as it bears some resemblance there. Probably some interesting ABS 1:500s coming up from Japan soon, what with ANA's 3 flying turtles and the recent JAL A350 red-tip Tsurumaru reveals earlier this month...

I think the mold looks pretty good. I don't have a F-Toys A380, so I can't compare.

Re: 1:500 ANA A380 Flying Honu

I think it's a very decent option considering we're unlikely to see it released in 1:500 as a full diecast model. Nice pictures, thanks for sharing.

Re: 1:500 ANA A380 Flying Honu

I like this model, thanks for sharing friend.
It seems plastic but it is well done, the only missing is the landing gear.

The model is metal. Despite the lack of gears, I think it's a nice model.
