Recently I bought a Dragon Wings model of a 777-222 of United Airlines. The model was very crisp and sharp but there was a slight error in the numbering of the plane, when compared to the listings of the house number and the registration. Alas, on setting the 1:400 model on its stand for a few days the base of the plane became detached.
What I would like to know is, has anybody else had that problem with Dragon Wings models? Incidentally, I bought another 777 of the line, an Emirates one with the 1999 World Cup Cricket logo, this week.

Yes......I had that problem with a Air Jamaica A321 from Dragon Wings, I put alittle modeling glue on it (ask the hobby store which one to get cause I don't remember the name of glue I used) and now it's as good as new.

I recently won an eBay auction of the Dragon Wings 777-200 in China Southern ETOPS markings. I had gotten outbid on an A340-300 in house colors but the seller (who sold both) made an offer to me I couldn't refuse. Both models would have cost $60 retail and I got them for under $40 total, even with S&H!
So those two aircraft are going to start off my collection. Now I need to get some Gemini Jets!

I recently had an accident with the landing gear of a Herpa Crossair MD-83 given tio me by a friend. I had just redecorated my room and was being so careful putting it on the shelf that i hit thes shelf and dropped it.... quite funny. But again Superglue fixed it.

I have Herpa, Gemini, and Dragon Wings. Dragon Wings makes a very nicely detailed plane, but they are made like crap. Even the wings are made like crap. I have problems with the wings bending and the landing gear falling off. I still buy Dragon Wings though even Gemini is made the best out of all of them!!

I find DW new releases much improved then the old mould . Comparing with GJ , i feel that DW is leading this market . GJ has some nice models too but look at their current releases , there is no Asian airlines .
DW listens to their collectors that's why their models improves a lot .
