I admit to not knowing a lot about wings400 as a retailer. I don't buy from the UK due to the GBP exchange rate conversion costs and the generally high price of models in Britain. Even so if I was into E-Jets and modern UK releases I'd be all over these.
The two models are:
They are being made in batches of 360 each, using the JC Wings moulds and will be available only at the Wings400 website, Instagram Direct and eBay. These are quite large production numbers and illustrate one of the main differences in dealing with JC Wings who have a much higher minimum number requirement than Panda.
One thing that stands out is the addition of aerials to these models. You may think this is new for the JC E-Jets but it isn't. Back in 2015 the first two E-195 releases (both Azuls) came with aerials but for some reason every E-jet since has not done so. I know adding the aerials is an extra cost per aerial.
Wings400 are saying that these cannot be pre-ordered and they will be available around mid-September. They look like nice models and it is great to get some more European releases outside of the usual mainline airlines.
