Flaps down. It's not really a new concept anymore, as we have had it from JC Wings for quite a few years now. What are your preferences?
I love the flapsdown variant on the 747. JC Wings did an awesome job. But variant option depends on how you wish to display the model.Flaps down. It's not really a new concept anymore, as we have had it from JC Wings for quite a few years now. What are your preferences?
I also love the 747 in flaps down. Anything with triple-slotted flaps just looks majestic.I love the flapsdown variant on the 747. JC Wings did an awesome job. But variant option depends on how you wish to display the model.
I agree if i want a 747 to park at the gate then i dont want flaps but if i want a 777 to put on the runway the go for flapsI think it matters where you use it on display and or in a diorama and if you are tight on money.

I agree with this assessment. I have wanted one for a while (same with an interactive model), but have never found the right oppunitriy. I don't want to feel as if I can only use them for landing or at the hangar I guess. Really hope to get one soon!As of now, none of my models are "flaps down". I do like the idea, but personally I have no preference
This assessment as well is excellent.I had been wondering about this, so I'm glad someone brought it up. I have one flaps-down model in my collection: an ANA 747-400 made by Hogan and it comes with a precise replica of Haneda's runway 34L's threshold, so it is in the landing configuration. Flaps-down is a somewhat generic term. I think JC's flaps-down models are best used for approach/landing flare setups, and maybe a maintenance setup. Full flaps for takeoff or at the gate is unrealistic, and full flaps on the runway after landing without the spoilers raised is equally unrealistic. I'd imagine they look cool simply displayed like that as an added level of detail, but not a factor that influences my decision to buy a model at this time.
I was not, but very glad I have seen it now! I would love to see flaps-down on some smaller aircraft, eg 727 and 737. I think there is a flaps-down 737 in 1:200 but not in 1:400 yet.I would assume you are familiar with the following video:
That would be epic! I would love to see that one the 777X folding wingtips, would be interesting.Just imagine if models could come with an extra pair of wings? Would be something quite interesting LOL
I love that 350 landing!I just love flaps down and also open doors
