I've been doing my best lately to not let March escape without at least one review to show for it. Life has been busy but I've finally finished my latest project. Back in December I committed to purchasing 2 NG Models (my first two and have since picked up another). A pair of 787-9s and wow, the hype for once has been well warranted. In this review of NG Model's China Southern "787th" 787, innovation and quality are paramount on NG's 10th attempt at the 787-9.
The aircraft itself is a brand new member of the China Southern fleet since December 2018 and is largely flying cross-continental flights in and around China out of China Southern Hub, Guangzhou. B-1168 is sporting the new scheme applied to most if not all China Southern 787s but has been given special badges that indicate its celebratory social standing as the 787th 787. The aircraft is wholly owned by Aercap and is on lease to the airline. This is the second 787 I've reviewed, the other, a JC 787-8 by JC. It has been interesting to take a close look at both and its impressive to see what NG Models (Next Generation Model) has accomplished.
As we complete reviews of the diecast products that make it into the collection, a summary and quick link will be shared here. Each review is the sole opinion of Diecast Curio and is in no way affiliated with any company or product.
