New Panda Model Jan 2017 Releases
Below are the latest releases announced by Panda models for January/February. In fact the GSE is already out on the market.
Panda also seem to be upgrading their boxes:
The A330s represent a big shift for Panda Models, which up until now have made only narrowbodies (not counting the Y-20). They look like new moulds and are complete with aerials and satnav domes. Plus there is variety too. Panda had already announced a pair of A330-200s (for China Southern Guangzhou Games and Air China Olympic Torch) but these A330-300s represent a new pair of moulds since one is equipped with Rolls Royce Engines and one with Pratt & Whitneys. The P&W version is in fact the first release ever in standard CZ colours with those engines. Thanks to a Mandarin speaking friend I've managed to source some official shots and the A330 looks really very good:
Great to see aerials and also the distinctive nosegear bay bulge in place.
I think it's safe to say that Panda's excellent A320NEO mould will get a major airing in 2017. In this batch their 5th NEO is announced in the form of Hong Kong Express:
Ground Service Equipment
Lastly Panda is making good GSE. This announcement there are new buses in AirAsia colours plus more Fire Engines representing Kunming and Hong Kong Airports.

Thanks for sharing this Richard. The A330's are really very interesting, particularly the freighter version. They have trumped everybody with that one! I'm pleased to say I followed your advice from the other thread and have placed my first order via taobao for a couple of Panda models, and am now eagerly awaiting their arrival.

There are a couple of sellers on eBay but otherwise you have to go through taobao sites. I use Skywings taobao site which can be found here: https://maifeiji.world.taobao.com/category-1070867363.htm?spm=a312a.7700824.w4010-2785664664.199.l5EFBj&search=y&parentCatId=38550224&parentCatName=%B0%B4%C6%B7%C5%C6%B7%D6%C0%E0&catName=PandaModel+1%3A400#bd
