      I guess PW4000s are a given but regarding GEs, I wonder if he will release it with the early CF6-80A engines or the -80C2 ones (slightly different nacelle and exhaust cone shapes).

      Revell and Zvezda did a good enough job with the 767. And with the aftermarket details available, this seems like a silly endeavor. One kit that is really needed is an Airbus 318.

      I agree that maybe a -200 might not be needed, but an A318 seems like a waste of Kurt's time in my opinion. Also most airlines felt that way. However, Kurt did do the 737-600. I would rather spend my money and his time and skills for a CS100 and 300.

      Keep em separated!

      The A318 would indeed be a waste of time.
      I would love to do the CS series, but I am very sure that one of the global players will do it.Taking into account that Swiss is operating it, it is easy to guess who probably will make one.

      American Airlines and Continental, I'm in for two 762s depending upon the engines. Still saving my pennies for a 742 in addition to the 744 I got earlier.

      I'll be ordering the 747 classics and the SP as soon as I clear a couple projects off my bench (I didn't have much build time early in the year due to the Bar exam...). Kurt is making new kits faster than I can build them!

      I also see that the 757s come with metal landing gear now. Fantastic! Wish mine had the metal gear!

      The 762 will be available with the choice of PW or GE engines.

      Will the GE engines be the newer version (like what was on Continental's 767-200s) or the older version (like what was on Delta's)?

      Were there pylon changes between the early and late GEs, as well? I don't have any refs in front of me but I have a very vague recollection that there were. Any help?

      American and Delta Boeing-762s were equipped with earlier GE engines. Even some earlier Delta Boeing-763s had earlier GE engines. We have to rely on Braz or PAS models, if AA chooses not to make those earlier GE type engines.

      In case AA tools only the late GE engines, CF6-80C2, we still have an accurate alternative for early GE engines as the CF6-80A are the ones included in Zvezda's 767-300 kit.

      Of course, if AA tools them as nice as their PW4000, that is even better.

      I've heard the Zvezda engines are too small.... I cannot confirm that, however.

      What are the external differences in the two?
