Well this was a opportunity buy from glimpsing around NG models! I am not a fan of all over white liveries but this one for some strange reason really attracted me to it! After doing some research online to see real-life pics and comparing them to the Phoenix and even the Panda versions ,i could see that the NG attempt , looked the best of the 3!
One thing i like about NG is their inside the box Packaging! You get a foam holder within a plastic tray and if any of you have recently bought the BA Landor retro livery Tristar 500 by NG ,you see just how perfect that model was and the attention to detail that NG do over other brands versions! I can recommend that model way better than Aeroclasics attempt! There's look a joke frankly! NG Tristars are the VERY BEST ! The BA Landor Tristar 500 Retro/livery one was Exquisite!
Getting back to this model ,it was slightly damaged but i can fix the issue. Comparing this model with Panda ,Aviation400 and Phoenix A330-300's its very difficult nowadays to call a winner!They are all very good and have improved alot ! Livery also helps define the choice but overall i have to say NG are as good as Panda on this aircraft model type the only thing they miss to AV400's is jewel warning lights and with other aircraft types engine exhaust blue hue's. Depending on aircraft type.
I should give this model a 4 as it was damaged but putting it aside ,being good as Panda on this type i will give it a 5 as of the quality and presentation! One thing the NG beat the rest on at this scale is presentation of the model itself! If you like this model and if any are left anywhere i would recommend but if you hate white liveries stay clear but this one just so happened to appeal to me? Maybe its because its scarce? Besides that it does look better than the Phoenix version no doubt,better engine graphics,its this area that seems to beat them all the time of late and maybe the graphics on some liveries/colours being wrong.
Overall a nice model to add to a collection and unique livery! Great NG protective packaging,like the foam touch,reminds you of WittyWings! Though i think NG are going to become market leaders and knock Gemini jets into a sub-league.NG are c;learly setting the way now,they will take on and over the mantle from Gemini jets.
