American Airlines 737-800: N838NN (One World) & N306NY
NG Models must notice when they look at the books how well American Airlines models sell. This pair will be very popular with U.S. collectors considering that these models should be well beyond what Gemini has been doing. They of course would be the other next most likely producers of these models but they apparently continue to have serious quality control issues.
Jet2 Holidays 757-200(WL): G-LSAC and G-LSAD
European collectors have been lobbying hard for more from NG Models. While this set probably isn't what most were envisioning, they certify should be good. I think that the NG 757 mould continues to be the very best in their arsenal and it's nice to see the model continue to see regular use. Recent feedback however suggests NG get a bit more choosy with their registration numbers as G-LSAD has been recently retired.
Air China and China Southern 737-800s: B-1781 & B-5497
There is currently a bit of confusion about which Chinese 737-800s are being released in the coming month. ON social media, three different mock-ups were released but on a separate forum (DAC) NG online announced two of the three. I will roll with the two that were announced. Both of these look really colorful and will probably show up in limited quantities here in the United States. If you're thinking of going for one of these I wouldn't wait.
There isn't anything exceptionally amazing about this month. The debut of the new 777 mould is fun to think about but if NG haven't manages to shore-up some of the obvious issues with their prototype they could be in for a big of a wash. The highlights for me include the pair of 737s and I'll likely get suckered into the EgyptAir Cargo.
