Default Geminijets new Hawaiian A333-200

It's finally released (on Ebay) but none of my retailers have it.

The silver looks too dark.

I'm not too familiar with more recent Geminijets, is their 'cradle mold' for wings still being used?

Yes, they do use a clear plastic cradle to secure the model in their box.

How elegant do you want it to be?
The silver looks just great imo.

I'm afraid my question might not be clear. I didn't refer to the packaging cradle but the assembly of the wing.

Phoenix molds the port and starboard wings separately and attach them onto the fuselage.

I understand Gemini sometimes uses (used?) a 'one whole piece of wing' and attach (cradles) it onto the base of the fuselage.

It is unclear if which method have they used for this new Hawaiian?

Just by looking at the photo, the wings appear to be separate pieces. If it's a "cradle", that's one tight seam!

Thanks

Thought I'd get confirmation as I've never seen this before (apart from the fact that I'm not familiar with Gemini)... sort of couldn't believe it, I much prefer two wings attach onto fuselage than cradle type (thus, have avoided Gemini)

Another question on Gemini, are they the primary maker of airliners from the US?

Don't seem to see an awful lot from Phoenix

Mate read my end of year reviews they'll tell you who makes what:

Airline History Blog - Yesterday's Airlines

Then read the A330 review which discusses the moulds:

Airbus A330 1:400 Scale Mould Review - Yesterday's Airlines

The answers are in there to both your questions, but in short only Gemini and Aeroclassics make US models and this new JC Wings A330 mould Gemini are using is a slot in wings effort

What a beautiful color scheme. For me,number 1 on the planet. Closely followed by Etihad.

Still patiently waiting for a 'Hawaii Express' DC-10 to be made in 1:200 scale.

Also waiting for 'Western Pacific' B737-300 Stardust Resort/Casino in Las Vegas in 1:200 scale.

I don't understand Etihad's new livery, looks somewhat crumpled paper of various shades?

Lufthansa's 'Wings of the Crane' is sharp, and Hawaiian's 'Moana' is colorful, but the Etihad 'geometric triangles' is in a class by itself. Those warm colors against the metallic beige background for me, is the most handsome livery flying. That's my opinion, and I'm sticking with it... Later, Doug

Saw the 1st B787 down at Boeing. You should see Etihad in person with sun. My wife had to tell me to close my mouth. I didn't know about the new look until that moment. I think "Holy Crap" was the 1st words uttered?

Ok guys I've had a chance to review this release and I'm not sure Gemini have gotten it correct despite having prior knowledge of it. Only time will tell if it matches the first A330 to wear the new scheme so I score gently with this review:
