Default Gemini 200 ERJ-170?

I received a catalog in the mail today from The Airplane Shop. It is the Holiday 2012 Catalog #26. In it is a photo of an ERJ-170 in US Airways Express. The description says it is 1/200 scale, 6 inches long with a wingspan of 5 1/8 inches. It lists for $69.95 and has a product number of G2USA336. Does anyone know when this will be available? It is not yet listed on The Airplane Shop website.

It looks very nice in the photo. It has the old blue top paint scheme.

Lovely, hope to see a BA Cityflyer along after that, I saw someone on another forum talking about a KLM A332 I what I believe was the same catalogue, any chance you can post some pics of other future releases if there are any we aren't aware of in there.

I did not notice the KLM A332, but here it is. Sorry for the poor quality photo.

I hope this translates to a 1/400 release too! I'd probably pass on the old colors of US Airways, but I would sure go for some F9 (from a few years ago), New UAX, DL, Aeromexico Connect (In regular and Skyteam colors) and Air Canada (as a 175)....and don't even got me started on a 190! Sweet Baby Jesus! This is good news as we have been waiting for these for a LONG time!

Had one of these sub for the regular AF/WX RJ85 at work this morning, looked pretty nice under the lights and snow, although I get the feeling that it might not look as nice in the daylight, but I wouldn't mind one.

There's a great 1/144 Minicraft kit out for the Emb-170. The mould and parts fit are perfect. I bought it from a Japanese site last year and have yet to put it together, but one can see in much finer detail all of the contours and proportions of this remarkable little "big" jet. Embraer has exactly what the economy class passenger wants most of all - SPACE. The entire series 170/175/190/195 is a class act.
