Re: AeroClassics New Releases for July 2016

I considered picking up both the ATA and Trump Shuttle 727-200s, but decided to save some money for once :) Specifically with the ATA, I can't get past how they just chopped off the blue at the...

Re: 1/400 U.S. Airways A319/A320/A321 Old Color?

Nope. Unfortunately, there are no 1:400 A320 family releases in the old US Airways colors. Gemini will never touch these subjects since they only focus on the absolute most current crap, but I...

Re: GJ200 Air Canada B787-9 - Is the colour strange?

They don't admit to any errors/problems. They also don't give a crap about any complaints any customers might have. Definitely a well-run company.

Re: The British Pocket Rocket: One-Elevens in 1:400

This one would look fantastic on GJ's mold considering how awful the release on AC's original 1-11 mold was.

I know it isn't, but how sweet would it be if #1 was an all-new DC-9-10 mold? That's one iconic type that I think is sorely underrepresented in any decent way in 1:400.
