I can't really complain about GJ. The best models in my collection are from Gemini... in fact, 90% of my collection is from GJ. I like the moulds, I like the new magnetic gears and gear doors; although I would like to see some more Canadian liveries (hint: Air Transat).

My only complaint is the dragster look on my 737-700s. I just pull out the nose gear a little to fix that. Yes it makes the nose gear look a little funny, but still better than the dragster look.

Comments like this serve no purpose, and in fact degrade the forum overall. If you want to troll, just go away. The OP should be allowed to make threads expressing excitement about a new model without garbage like this being posted.

Jeez...a little harsh, don't you think?

It's nice to see someone who is so excited about a model they have received instead of nit-picking every little flaw. This seems like a special 787-9 indeed...thank you for sharing it with us!

I posted this thread because I was very happy and pleased with my gift.

I have issues in my life, of which one is that my Husband has been told that he can no longer drive due to issues with his eyes.

I do not need a young person TELLING me how Kiss *** my thread is. I am sorry I am being rude but I will absolutely NOT tolerate this on my thread.

Kindly, do me a HUGE favour and DELETE all of your comments and BEST OF ALL do NOT reply any longer to this thread.


Thank you

Asking Mike to do anything kind or considerate won't work. When you're dealing with an infantile, hostile jerk it's tough to get through. Then again, think of it this way - anyone with as much hostility and immaturity as Mike lives a pretty miserable life. Of course he'll say otherwise and tell us how wonderful he is (and how bad the rest of us are), but the more he says, the more obvious it becomes that he's a mentally unstable character.

What has happened to this forum? Can't even post a thread about a model you like without someone posting something rude. It's really sad....

I too love this model! It's stunning in person. This one along with the Etihad 787-9 on the same mould are two of my favorites!

Just to prove you wrong (and since Rocky said she's going through some issues and she asked me to, and I don't want to pile on, 'cause that ain't cool), I've removed the offending posts.

Carry on, everyone. Nice model, indeed! Glad it brings you some joy. No snark in that statement.

I have this beautiful model. I really like the colors which are much better than previous Virgin Atlantic releases. The brown cockpit windows make this model nearly a perfect model.

That models a great combination of type and livery. Sorry to hear about your husband's condition. Five years ago, I too lost a great deal of my sight without warning. Went to bed feeling fine, woke up next morning partially blind. This resulted in my losing my driving licence, and my job.

Now, you them posts coming

Neil.

Very nice and it sounds like u have a great friend. I'm thinking about getting the JC Wings 789 Air NewZealand all black or waiting for the United 789. Also can't wait for the Air China 748

Cheers for that. It just goes to show that we never know what's round the corner. I so like your 787, that livery looks so at home on it. I can see that I'm going to have to get more into 1/200 collecting

I love this model, I would have it if it weren't for the crazy amount of 747s that are coming out forcing me to prioritise! Looks good next to your VS A340 and 744 too

Same here...was very tempted to pick one up but had to come to my senses when I have quite a few 747s on order. Sticking to my 1:200 criteria of 747 and 737. This VS 787 is certainly beautiful!

I already bought the ANA 787-9 and really like it, but the more I see and hear about this one, I may just have to add it to the collection!

You have every right to be excited and say what you want about your own models Rockybudgeboa. You don't have to justify your reasons to anyone and as VC10DAN said it's good to see someone excited about a model instead of knit picking about them. It's a stunning model indeed and definately one of my favorites..... Enjoy!

It's right, this model is awesome. I received yesterday my first AA 787-8. The paint job should be better but the model is globaly nice.
