re: kev747's collection

Very nice additions Kevin! I'm planning on getting the MAS A330, because It'll fit my diorama.. No B777 available where I look

I agree this model would have looked awesome on the Starjets mould.

I think for some reason this model doesn't seem to come out well on photos but it looks better when you see it in front of your eyes.

Thanks G-VFIT! I am glad you were also able to find your last Kitty model, it is nice to see the complete Kitty fleet together, when you get one you need all of them, it is not an easy fleet to build but we got there in the end!

Name one MD-11 that didn't.

I sure hope Herpa picks up that mould.

Thanks fgmsnazz!

Yes, there are some noticeable differences between the two.

Here are some photos comparing the two which might help you decide which one to get.

The front landing gear doors of the latest version are better and have more detail. The Angry Bird one seems to be higher off the ground.





The wings are lower on the Angry Birds one.

Thanks Thom! Do you mean for your new Schipol diorama. It would be also nice if they made the MAS A330 in regular colours.
Are you looking for the MAS 777

re: kev747's collection

Kevin, I am planning to buy the MAS "oneworld" A330 too, I am confused as to which one, PHOENIX, JC WINGS or SKY 500, I have to keep space for my Lufthansa and British Airways heavies...

Are you looking for the MAS 777
To keep it as real as possible I need the real birds flying to AMS.. But some are hard to get (I.e. the MAS 777) and some are impossible (i.e. Korean A330).. So you need alternatives mate..

re: kev747's collection

Thanks so much for the comparison Kev, it really seems that the nose sections of the two Sky500 Finnair A340's are different. The last model is much better than the previous.

Thank you for the comparison Kev. Just like what Charter mentioned, the latest Finnair model is much better.

Cheers!
