Were I to become hypercritical, the front strut has the plane elevated higher than normal.

Paint job is good on both however.

Nice paint jobs, I agree. But look at the nose on the -800, and the silly ammount of dihedral on the -700! And of course, the front strut. Are these Gemini? Inflight?

I guess the westjet wasn't enough for them to realize how effed up the wing dihedral was.

How did you get the southwest 737 ? It still hasn't showed available to buy in GJ website or my local retailer.

What's happened to the GJ 737-700 mould?? That looks really weird! GJ used to make the best 737's in 1/200 scale. I was going to get that Southwest, but think I'll have to pass.

That's what's got me puzzled, why change something and make it worse? It would have cost them money to develop a new mould too.

I like how Gemini is making the nose of the 737 moulds sharper. But like Travsuz said, the GJ 737 mould on both the 700 and especially the 800 series were the best! These releases look a bit different this time around... Anyone remember the original 737 landing gears when Gemini 200 came out? I sure miss those... I think the gear just needs to be pushed in a bit farther, and would have to agree with the dihedral being a bit much.

I think we can work out some code 3 magic and modify the nose gear and lighten that dihedral.

I'm still going for the Southwest 737.

Woah. As others have said, the wings on the Southwest -700 are crazy high!

Is it just me, or is the SW 737 looking too pointy at both ends?

Very sad that they ruined a good WN model, if the wings are that messed up on all of them, I think i'll have to pass unless there is a way to fix it.

AHA! I've got it!

With the influx of the landing/takeoff configured (fantasy) CX A350s, GJ200 wanted to get in the act.

They present us with a 738 model that is just starting to rotate (the front strut demonstrating the aircraft is at a 2 degrees AoA) and the wings are flexing due to the fuel, cargo, and pax loading (plus the weight of the aircraft itself) as it transitions to flight.

I'm getting two of each.....

I've been waiting for the SWA, but now I don't know if i'll get it. Glad I did not pre-order.

Sad, it does not look very nice to Gemini Standards. Who make these molds? At the JC factory too? Because I read Gemini now is there too? Hope they are samples. Look bad sorry.

Yes, the 737-700 mold is more than 7 years old, they fixed the wings on scimitar versions. See this thread

Oh, those winglets give me the heebeejeebees - couldn't they have found a more aesthetically acceptable solution? (I know, it's all subjective)

Please pull out of the JC factory Gemini, since you went there the quality has been on a downward spiral. The Southwest colors are wrong and what has happened to the cockpit windows on both models????

Neither of these potentially fantastic subjects can enter my collection on the Gemini/JC mould - Come on Herpa/Inflight maybe you can do something in the future for these and save the world from cheap immitations.

I agree! They're the visual equivalent of nails on a chalkboard for me. But if they save fuel and help keep fares low, I can take the pain.

IF and 737s....those are even worse than Gemini right now. The 737NGs need to be wiped clean slate like the 787 and remade to the quality of other new moulds.

I know the feeling.... I didn't like the raked wingtips, because the winglets look great on Boeing aircraft. Those scimitar winglets do have a sci-fi look to it...

Okay, another opportunity at the New Southwest livery. I found this picture of a 737-300 with winglets... I know the winglets look a bit long on Gemini's mould, but its such a good looking model!
