Incoming JC Wings for September
This Singapore DC-10 is I believe made by JC Wings for a third party. It looks like it uses the old Gemini mould with aerials and rolling gear added:
As always there are plenty of Chinese airliners. Here is a China Eastern 787-9, Sichuan Airlines A350-900 (both flaps up and down), Lucky Air A330 and fantasy China Southern C919.
There are a couple of nice Japan Air Lines special schemes. One is a Mickey Mouse 90th anniversary logojet that I haven't seen advertised before, probably due to Disney's eagle eyes. The other is the Blue Samurai 777-200.
I like the look of this PLAAF 767-300. It has a lovely bare metal belly. Even the A319 looks pretty decent and I'm usually no fan of that mould.
The best 77W in 1:400 scale, in both flaps up or down configuration, and a great retro-livery makes a winning combo for this Garuda:
A rare and rather random North American release is this Air Transat 757 in the later colours. It isn't as good as the NG 757 but this still looks quite nice.
JC Wings 737 MAXs are very nice and the house colours MAX-9 is no exception.
In summary this is a good set of releases for August, with something for almost everyone whether you like Asian widebodies, house colours, military or even retro.

Phoenix also produced that 90th Anniversary Mickey Mouse JAL 767, I have it so I doubt I'll hunt down the JC since the PHX 767 mould is also pretty good. Might have to pick up the MAX9 and the Garuda though.
