Re: Gemini September Releases

The KLM 744 and Pan Am A310 are nice. Nothing for me either this time around though, which works out quite well for my wallet since I already snagged four of the new 1:400 Blue Box Delta 737-200s in...

Re: A curious combination

This is actually pretty common. For example, just take a look at some of American's 737-800s in the bare metal colors nowadays. A lot of them carry radomes with the new paint.

Re: Airbus sells 6 A380s to ANA All Nippon Airways!!!

I was actually thinking the same thing. I think ANA's livery will look quite good on that beast compared to many of the other color schemes it wears.

Re: Hail pummels Delta 747 over China; NWA's "Spirit of Beijing" may face scrapyard

Delta actually doesn't have the need for the kind of gauge that the 747-400 offers, despite flights going out full from time to time. Top that with Richard Anderson's strong view that four-engined...

Good stuff right there, Trevor. I'm hoping that GJ will do a 1:400 Widget MD-88 since the two Jet-X releases are hard to come by now and I could use a few more for fleet building.
