Yeah, but from my observations it appears the 1/200 diecast airplane model business is like a cartel. Only certain companies release certain models or models from a certain part of the world. They all share moulds b/c the factories are actually the same. I too wish Gemini Jets would make their own 747 mould with a proper wing box join and engines, but I think the cost of creating a new mould is very high for 1/200 scale. You would see the cost of models skyrocket.
