Re: New mould of GeminiJets- The 737 Split Scimitar Winglet

Very cool to see the Split Scimitars in 1:400 now, but oof. The nose and cockpit windows are pretty awful. Hopefully that gets fixed when this puppy goes into production.

Re: Full 1/400 Gemini Jets November 2014 releases

Guaranteed GJ will do Southwest new colors. You definitely don't need to worry about that. It's the stuff that isn't totally current that you have to wish for ;)
