Which scale is this CX model?

Hey,
I am looking for a Cathay Pacific B777-300ER model in their old livery in 1:500, but DAC and the W900 database left me confused.
On DAC, this is listed as 1:500, but in the W900 database it is listed as 1:400.


Does anybody have this model and can tell me which scale it really is? Thank you in advance

They are indeed two different models: one in 1:500 and one in 1:400.
There are some mold differences which give it away.

I once had the CX 777-300ER in 1:500 and it looks indeed the same as the 1:500 version shown here.

The 1:400 have a shorter nose gear leg, have nose gear door prints, "GE90" printing on the engines, etc, while the 1:500 version is different.

Hey,
thank you very much! The part number appears to be the same for both models, or it is an error in one of the databases, which added to my confusion.
Do you remember how the box looked like?
