Want BOTH of these!!! What does "Roll Out" version mean? Was the plane different after it was rolled out?

Wish they would get the Etihad A380 out already! Hoping it will be on the list of other Feb/March releases.

Anyone know what tooling the United 787 will be on that is part of the January releases?

Yes!!! Nice one Gemini, i will be snapping both these up when released they both look great

As mentioned in the ANA 787 thread, the cockpit windows look good with the tint as per real aircraft...

Glad i waited and didnt purchase the Phoenix version of the Virgin...

The United 787 was announced in the January annoucements, so it should be available in the next few weeks. But I'm not sure it's this same mould. It looks like the Phoenix mould to me. Weird they would release one model on one mould then the next month release another one on a new mould.

The First is the United Boeing 787-8.(January release) The American will be the second B787-8 and the Virgin will be the first B787-9. Hope it's the one with the new landing gear lights. As shown on JC Wings official site on facebook. Since Gemini and JC Wings share molds you know.

Its a shame if the United release is the Phoenix mould as the new JC/GJ version was obviously just around the corner, surely it would make sense to use the new version...

i have the United 787 on order anyway...

More of the same, and about as interested in these airlines as I am in developing warts. Luckily there is Herpa and Western Models to release some more inspired 1:200 scale models, compared to this boring stuff to please the masses. And can we just start calling this JC Wings 2.0 or something, Gemini has died a long time ago.

Looks like Phoenix's mould unfortunately.

YUP! Just as I suspected. Weird that would use the Phoenix mould for that release then release the American right behind it. The Phoenix is not bad, I just ordered the Royal Jordanian 787's and I have the Qatar version by Phoenix. But, with the new mould coming wish they would have waited. Oh well.....

I expect JC/GJ will release the RJ's as well on the new mould now that Phx has

I'm certainly far from being an expert, but the landing lights look significantly different on the Gemini model? I could have sworn I read that they were different molds, but I could be very wrong...I don't remember.

I wonder if it was a favor or something because of the Phoenix factory zinc rot models or something like that.
