Happily, 2022 is starting out with a much lighter then usual release schedule from NG Models. While that may not be great news for most collectors, the effort needed to keep up with everything in the world of 1/400 scale from the perspective of a writer is daunting.
This month, just six new models are expected from NG, but each of the six will be on moulds that are unparalleled in 1/400.
American collectors will be the happiest of the bunch. A sharp looking AA One World 757-200 headlines January 2022. For more, continue on...
In May, NG Models have slowed their pace to a certain extent. Nine announced models for the month is a little below average for NG, but considering two for the month have been delayed, that leaves a rather slim group of seven. If you're similar to me however, this creates a nice rest from a blockbuster year for NG Models. For a breakdown of this month's releases, continue on.
Not to be outdone by itself, NG Models seems eager to show its brawn once again. NG models have announced by my count 16 new models for the month of April. The best part is that two brand new moulds will be used to allow NG full autonomy in the 737NG market. This will enable for the production of many long sought after models and the rerelease of many others.
There's a ton to unpack this month and due to the sheer volume of this release, my review will be a bit more brief on each specific release. For my thoughts on the April releases read on.
NG Models took a long hiatus for the Chinese New Year, but are back with their February-March releases. While only using essentially four moulds this month, there are a total of eight variants. There are also aircraft from six different countries from five different global regions. No one except Aeroclassics has been doing more in terms of diversity and selection.
As models hit store shelves this week, I'm taking a in depth look at what's new. To see my take on all eleven, 1/400 models...
I'm sure there are still those out there that have no love or interest for NG Models. They were truly a juggernaut in 1/400 scale model airlines in 2020 and they made it quite clear they intend to continue their impressive foray in 2021.
NG Models brought in the new year with a bevy of models. 9 aircraft types on 7 different moulds and a total of 15 different registrations. It's amazing to see the NG catalogue develop before our very eyes.
Not only has the quantity of offerings been generous but so has been the regional selections made available. Collectors specializing in aircraft from China, Malaysia, Australia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Mexico, Qatar, and the Philippines all have something to pay attention to. To see all HG has to offer in January 2021...
It took NG Models a little while to roll out their Models from March... they arrived in May. But no matter because in typical NG fashion, they are phenomenal. The highlight for me is the Royal Nepal Combi. I choose 4 of the 14 choices this month and I've rated them based on my over all personal satisfaction.
