Hello,

 

I can't get my mind set on this. Is there any difference in molding (new kit parts or new tool) between th original Zvezda A321 kit (factory livery - 7017) and this new A321ceo (7040) or is this just a matter of decals. 

By the way is the A321ceo exactly the same aircraft as the A321-200 or are there any physical differences 

 

Cheers

Hi Eric,

I haven't  seen the plastic for the new Zvezda release so can't comment.

Regarding the aircraft, yes basically.  

The A320 was originally available as the dash100 and dash200, with different fuel capacity. Once the New Engine Option (neo) was marketed, the 'classic' was called the ceo (Current Engine Option).

the new kit has the condor decals plus sharklets, as they introduced this on thei house colors kit as well not so long ago. same item Nr, only a new box design indicated that. previous kits only had the wingtips.

Thank you both for your kind replies...

It is basically what I figured in both case - real aviation and model point of view.

What made me wonder is that none of the illustrations about the Zvezda A321ceo showed the sharlets. But if they are in the box that alone would justify buying Zvezda A321ceo 7040 besides A321 7017 I already have.

Indeed, thats a but weird, but i know for sure that the updated version of the house color kit definetly has sharklets, like they changed on for the A32N kit. So pretty sure the Condor version also has this update... but that is by far the tinest problem haha... the kit is very nice on the first look, but lacking a lot of details on the second!

Thank you again. Have you any summary of the shortcomings?

Thank you, very useful, I will gratefully use your information. 

 

I have been following you on the "Ready for inspection" forum for quite a long time but I was not aware you had some topics in the WIP chapter. Great job indeed, very inspiring and very informative.

I will look into the WIP for more of your work.

 

Cheers

sadly this is again the 4 door configuration and not the flexcabin (i think that was the name) with the overwing exits. 😕 so it is basically like the revell 321N

4 door configuration is correct for CS-TJI
