just opened mine up today, needless to say, i'm sending it back. does look the part, but looks awful considering the windows look way out of proportion as well as some other atributes. They didn't even have the audacity to call it a G IV or G-550,,, WTH is a G-500?

Did you fly the Phantom? I must have missed that.
Are you going to keep the Gulfstream's look stock per HK's interpretation?
