You never know. They do make 743 models and we could very well see one before this year is out.

Why doesn't someone contact Phoenix and float the idea?
Way ahead of you Moin, I have contacted them about it and asked them to do the B743 Mogal tail, B737 Quetta, A310 Peshawar tail with images of each. I have also suggested they do the B743 in Pashmina Kashmiri tail too.

I knew it. They had to go making some mistake. This has the 744's GE engines. Don't think I want it now.

Don't like it, not getting it. The angle of the cockpit windows versus the wings is off and the engines and pylons are truly 744. Not for me.

I had a look at the engines of the my GE PIA B747 made by Aeroclassics and yes they do differ. Sadly Phoenix always seems to mess up on the engines on many of its releases. e.g. MAS B743 (old colours). Still i probably will pick this up as i doubt AeroClassics to do this in the future. However, i would like a B742 and B742M in 1990s colours on the Bir Bird mould to go with my SV PIA B743.

Also i hope AC does the B707/B720 in 80s colours to go with the AC B747s it released awhile back. Now that would be awsome!

Like you said, AC may not release these colors as their prime focus is on 'delivery colors' save for a few exceptions but its probable that B.Bird might release it as they have done both delivery and current schemes, an example being the Aerolineas Argentinas 747. B.Bird have released it in the Pentacampeon 2003 colors (which I have) whereas AC has just announced that they will release it too and I'm praying it will be in their original 'AA' delivery colors and not the 'Iberia' copy.

Last i remember Big Bird went out of business and AC uses the Big Bird mould now, so they are the only people that will release any airline in any livery they want.

I had a look at the PX B743 mould, it is indeed slightly better than this old B742 mould used by another former aircraft manufacturer in the industry. I have also read that all previous releases by PX all the B742 have been the same mould, hence no suprise there then. Although they use GJ for the A310 and B777 mould, they should have asked GJ for the new improved B742 mould that I quoted earlier. I hope we see all these tails done by PX, i doubt we will see any from GJ as they focus on more regular colours and PX fills in the niche special colour range. Three more to go for PX as they all have moulds which they can use:
  1. PIA B743 in moghal and pashmina livery
    PIA A310 in gatway to east colours
    PIA B737 in new port city colours
Another thing i noticed on the PX B743 mould is lack of wing probes that many PIA B743 have.
