HYJLwings have probably been going longer and produced more models than you might imagine. They started out in September 2016 and have made around 100 different models now - mostly in 400 scale. I have written about them here at the blog many times - check out the following for all the blogposts about HYJL:
The last time I wrote about HYJL was in July when they announced 3 China Southern A321s, 1 China Southern A350 and a pair of Air China 737-800s. All those models have been released aside from the A321 wearing the China International Consumer Products Expo scheme. In the end I acquired one of the A321s and one of the 737-800s for my collection.
Now HYJL have announced their next set of models and these consist of both Chinese and Canadian models. It isn't the first time that HYJL has released Canadian A321s, and the owner of the brand has close ties with Canada himself, but it is the first time we see an A330 from HYJL, which'll no doubt be using the NG Models mould.
Also in this release is the prototype A321neo XLR (technically an A321-253NY). HYJL have made house colours A321s before and they have always been excellent.
What is different about the XLR over the LR is that it has a modified wing flap configuration matching that of the A320 rather than the A321 so it'll be interesting if they get that detail right.
Last up for this month is an Air China A350 and a Starlux A321neo LR (or 252NX):
So that is the rundown of this month's releases. HYJLwings models are difficult to get in the West but I know they have been trying to find new distribution partners and in the past they have been stocked by Threshold Aviation in Canada.
If you haven't tried them out before I can highly recommend them. Their models have the same quality as NG releases and they are made in smaller production runs and come with collectors cards.

I thought they were NG under the original name or brand and NG was born out of them??? They seem to own each other lol...
