Another thing you will notice on DW B742 mould is that is has WING PROBES that the Phoenis mould lacks. Hopefully DW does not screw up on the colours and printing I shall pick this up too.

The DW EK 773 is a very old mould. GJ did this too, however it has a tail seam which can be seen very clearly.

Usually PX produces very good models using GJ moulds instead of the Tucano moulds (from an old aircraft model company no longer in operation). Take a look at the A310 and B777 they have and you will know what I mean.

The B747 is Phoenix own mould...well actually they bought it off Tucano (a former aircraft company that went bust a few years back). Though when I picked up my PIA 742M, I looked through many of them and they all seemed fine including printing and textures. There were no smuges or details lacking.

DW is not know to make that many mistakes on its aircraft. The moulds such as the A330/A340 are another story. However, DW has the best B747 moulds in the market alongside the BigBird moulds (AeroClassics), so hopefully if they dont mess up the colours this should be a good product.

I like it, and I'm going to get it. Who cares if that tiny white stripe for the flag is not there? Even if it isn't, those who want this model will buy it anyway. I'd put that as down right trivial as compared to the overall detail and authenticity of the model. DW has a far superior mould as compared to PX and to me that is what matter most. The model as to look as close to the real a/c as is possible in that scale. The odd color or shade difference I can live with, but not if the mould is incorrect.

Fully agree with you guys! This mould is superior to the PX version, also now that we have the wing probes that the PX lacked. The only problem I see is the colour on the rear fuselage it looks more greenish than cream - could be the way the photo is taken or amount of light?!

DW has never totally mismatched a color. They might have gotten the shade a bit light or dark on certain models on occasion (DW Qatar A345 & A380 are a darker shade of grey as compared to Herpa and GJ Qatar models) but not a complete mismatch where the color is totally different to the actual thing. This will be beige, albeit a slightly lighter or darker than the original, or it may be just like the original. Never judge by these pics.

here is a better pic of the model: beige a little dark but will get it like the wing probes. a little dissappointed with the tail compared to the PX one as it has a little defects in it compare it with PX and you will know what i mean.
