Up until now Panda models have been happy releasing just Chinese airliners with a rare Asian or Japanese addition. However this could be the moment they start to become mainstream. Whatever you can say about them their models are excellent and the printing fantastic. Now they've scooped all the other manufacturers with the first A320NEO in 1/400.
In keeping with Panda's release philosophy they have produced two version of the airframe from the same airline - the launch customer Lufthansa. First there is D-AINB with 'First to fly A320neo' and 'Less noise. Less fuel. Less CO2' titles:
The mould leverages off their allegedly stolen but excellent Aeroclassics mould and looks very good to me. The second release is of sistership D-AIND in the standard scheme:
No doubt we can expect a steady stream of A320NEOs from Panda especially as Chinese airlines start to take delivery. These LH models are available now.
