Smile Delta 767

Just got the 767 Delta!

Gotta bend the main gear a little when coming home.

Disclaimer:
Bad Supersized iPhone camera pictures ahead!



Crooked main gear ahead:



At least, it has the nose graphic centered:



And another gem (1:200 and therefore smalish as hell):



Cheers
Bender

I think you should resize your pictures to at least 1024, these are rather large and pixelated, shrinking them would make them look nicer. Those are nice models, that cockpit printing is not quite right though, i couldnt live with that seam on the Ju-52. Thanks for sharing! Hope you enjoy them =D

Will do, as soon as I'm home!

The nose printing seems to be a liiiiittle bit misaligned -but it is only visible when looking at supersized crappy pics...

The seam on the Junkers is actually quite small. I hav e seen bigger seams on my Inflight jets. The model itself is quite simple. Too bad: the flaps are cast directly on the wings.

Who is the manufacturer of the Ju 52 ?

Herpa (1/160) or Model Power (1/200).

Good Question. Mine came in a plastic box without any labeling, but it is 1:200, matching my other models. The price was low, so I just had to have it.

I am going to take a pic next to my Qantas A380.

So, it could be Model Power.
It's a pity that this plane, as famous as the DC 3, in my opinion, has been so far, neglected by other manufacturers.
The Herpa one is fine, but the scale ... 1/160 ...

Resized the iPhone pics (they still remain crappy) and added two new shots (sorry, not taken with an iPhone).

This model has become my favorite model

Great photos! I love that polished belly, Gemini 200 just keeps getting better! I am so tempted to get this bird to join the other 2 widget birds I have, but I have to stick with my new criteria for 1/200 birds! Again, thank you for sharing this beauty on the DAC! Cheers! T7

I'm selling my Delta 767 as I can't live with the nose/cockpit windows. But each to their own. ;-)

These are great photos, convinced me to risk it all and buy the DL 767-200. I just really want to see in person what the nose is like, if it's as bad as its been looking like, keep an eye on the 'For sale' page, until then i'll post a good side by side comparison of the 767-200 vs the 767-300 nose shapes to try and clarify the difference.

This B767-200 mould nose section issue: pudgy and a bit short.
The two front windows should have flat surfaces as well.

It's like a cone on the B767-200. The B767-300 is way better.

Maybe we'll get lucky and GJ will produce a widget 763. Here's hoping, anyway...

I have this model and love it. One reason that I wanted to purchase it is that I've seen it several times in Delta's museum. In my opinion it does "Spirit of Delta" justice.

Oddly enough, I've heard that GJ didn't obtain permission from the Delta Heritage Trust to manufacture Ship 102 in this particular livery.

This 76 may not be perfect but it will make a nice momento for those whom have flown aboard one. As time moves forward my appreciation for this baby widebody increases, -(especially when faced with flying coast to coast aboard a 737). I'd be interested in seeing this one up close.
