This new model is a substantial improvement over the earlier 727 model in every area. It has more detailed parts, more animation, and more LOD models. Because of its 9 LOD models (versus 3 for the old one) it also is more frame rate friendly than last year's model.
Several repaints scheduled to follow Delta are: FedEx, DHL, Iran Air, and Pan Am. A paint kit will be released within the next few days which will also include an extra model that features winglets. A 727-100 will follow within a short time.
The 727-200 will work in both FS2002 and FS2004.
