      Good evening!

      The numbers of delivered A330neo are slowly and steadily growing.
      I wonder if we can expect any conversion kit or even complete A330neo kit in the nearer future?

      Any ideas?

      Greetings Daniel

      ...and lots more...

      Even if LH does, Revell isn't likely to do one. Or so they've said.

      I think a conversion kit from an aftermarket resin manufacturer would be more realistic, based on the Revell kit. I understood the main changes are the engines and the winglets. Or are there other modifications from the Basic A330 to A330neo which I am not aware of?
      I know the Revell kit has some Problems with the nose etc...

      Why do people keep mentioning the A350? It's the A330 NEO that's being discussed here...

      The differences from the 330 CEO to neo are engines, pylons, and wingtips. They also all have the new WBF and shorter canoes that were introduced on ln 1627.
