There can't be many airports in the world nowadays that regularly handle mainline jets that don't get an Airbus A320 series aircraft visiting. From Bhutan to Buenos Aires, Calgary to Christchurch and Denver to Dalian you're going to see the aircraft family that made Airbus the force it is today. The aircraft that indeed has forced two competitive responses from Boeing. This of course also means that 1/400 scale is swimming in Airbus A320s, but alas they are not all equal. As I did for the A330, back in March, in this post I aim to look at the current A320 moulds and see which cuts the mustard.
The A330 has surely transcended any sales projections Airbus realistically had for the type and has been the number one reason Airbus has had success in the widebody market since the mid-90s. It has now got a worthy partner in the A350, but still the A330NEO will mean production continues for years. Because of this success it is also a critical model in 1/400 scale for all the manufacturers and the modern moulds all have strengths and weaknesses.
