      It looks that is already released, the 777-300ER will be next in a couple of days...

      Thanks for looking.

      Hasegawa have confused themselves a little, though.

      A -200ER is externally identical to a base model -200.

      When the -300ER wing & engine mods are applied to a -200, it's called a -200LR

      While, the new engines are nice, they appear to not have done the new wingtips (deliberately or accidentally).

      Hello Scott,

      I contacted Hasegawa directly, according to the source is a 'new' tooling, the -200LR and the 300LR does come with the raked wingtips, although I requested pictures to confirmed....stay tuned !

      Regards,
      Cesar

      Perhaps I am misunderstanding, but what have Hasegawa confused themselves on with regard to the JAL -200ER kit linked in the EBay auction? With the addition of the GE90s, the kit is an accurate representation of the -246ERs that Japan Airlines operates. They are not -200LRs, so they shouldn't have the raked wingtips. The upcoming -300ER should, as you both pointed out.

      Mike,

      After rechecking my references, you are right - I am the confused one. Sorry for that folks!

      The -200 GE option is the GE90-77B (but JAL ordered theirs with PW4077s, I believe).
      The -200ER GE option is the GE90-94B, which Hasegawa have correctly depicted.

      I was thinking of the GE90-110/115 which is the only engine offered for the raked wingtip -200LR & -300ER.

      I just hope Hasegawa don't short-cut those releases like they did with their A300-600. All they did for that one was add wing fences to the -B4 wingtips and call it a -600, when it in fact the -600 has newer engines and everything aft of the 3rd door is A310.

      Scott.

      Scott,

      No worries, just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something. Like you, I am hopeful that Hasegawa does get it right on the -300ER, and I am pretty sure they will.

      Speaking of 777s, now that Lufthansa has taken delivery today of their first 777F, and they have 777Xs on order, perhaps Revell will finally release a 1/144 kit... ;)

      They didn't bother with the A300-600 that Lufthansa flew for years. Mind you, they probably thought at the time that the Airfix B4 was close enough.

      Wish they could have done the MD-11 though...

      Scott.

      I did send Revell several emails and put on their website that they should have done the additional parts to do a A300-600 from the Beluga kit, basically only needed to do new Fuselage and Tailplanes, that was a few years ago though, never got any replies.

      We SO need to make a new A300-600 petition to get them to release it.
