Help Me Pick A CO 777 Model

So I broke my best friend's 777 model, long story... It was a Skymarks 1:200 AFAIK. I thought it was a good model but I was wondering if there were better ones in the same scale. I'm looking for a more detailed model. I always thought this one was kind of plain. I want to get him a better one to make up for it.

Thx in advance for the suggestions

The hogan wings models are very good. Go to airlinemuseum.com

I got one from there and it looks great! Nice and solid with moving wheels

Concur with DL767 - I got a Hogan Wings AA 777-223 and it looks very well done.

Hogan kicks Skymarks butt every time. If you REALLY wanna say sorry, give him an upgrade.

BTW, the engine blades move when you blow on 'em  Wink

Here's one I had commissioned:

It's built from a 1:200 Hasegawa kit, with scratch-built flaps. It's not for sale though!  Silly

As for a ready-made 1:200 CO 777 model, GeminiJets will be releasing their first 777 in 1:200 scale in a couple of months. Seeing as how Continental was among the first of their 1:200 737 and 757 releases, my hunch is the same will hold true for the 777. The GeminiJets product is far superior to Hogan or SkyMarks, so hold out for a few months and get him the GJ model.

Well, I think he can settle for a hogan, plus I kinda need to give it to him now since it's supposed to be part of his x-mas present too so I'm kinda running late lol  blush 


Thanks for the replies!
