    Very, very lovely liveries. I do believe I prefer the blue most of all.

    It this a new B777 mould from JC wings or they used the phoenix mould. Looks like a new mould to me since the shape of the nose doesn't look very right. But other than that, it looks quite decent.

    I think this is the actual Phoenix release, is it not?

    Funny it has a window on the box like a JC Wings one. But I too thought these were Phoenix!

    I checked the database and compared the Air China pics above with the Phoenix version, and they looked quite different in terms of nose shape, cockpit window, pylon colour etc.

    Not sure why JC wings re-released the 2 models(Phoenix version is already good enough). But pretty sure now those are from JC wings.

    Because JC wings (also AV400 & Junk-X) are more into monkey-see, monkey-do, than coming up with something original.

    What a bloody waste of resources!!
    Phoenix made these 2 models last month, and did a great job!! Phoenix also has the best 777 mould on the market, so what's the purpose of this sloppy-seconds from a wanna-be maker?

    I bought the 2 Phoenix CA 777 last month, so gladly pass on these!!

    By the way X, lack of name on the box means no license! It's also their way (Blue Box, Net Models, C&C, Magic, & now JC) of continueuously fooling every one!

    My challenge to these Bozos; if you want to copy others, at least do a better job than the one's you are copying, otherwise, what's the bloody point?
    Like a fine wine, AeroClassics gets better with time.
