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 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.
