Thats a lovely scheme and if you look carefully on a sunny cloudless day about 11:00AM you will see the Air Tahiti Nui A340 flying north over the UK. Saw F-OSEA today although at 20 miles out at 30k feet

This would be a good time to have a all time best GJ 200 poll? This is in the top three. IMO. Maybe even higher. I wonder what took Gemini so long to do it? I have the two in 400 scale from years ago. Maybe the license to produce had run out? Hawaiian is also very pretty. You watch,it will be an expensive tough find before long. Yes,I still want the Hogan 200 version.

Strictly speaking the A340 is a classic nowadays.....

I have only seen this scheme once when spotting at LAX last year. My jaw dropped instantly: an absolute beauty with high skirts, even more so when parking nicely in front of the fat double decker whales. Very happy that's she has landed in my collection now.

If everyone is sold out,I think you can count on that.I can think of two very well known Ebay sellers that it is likely to happen with? Good for them if they sell it. I don't know how many of these Gemini made,but it's likely not enough?

Nice, but since it is going to replace the A340, Not too crazy about getting a model of it

Very nice model... although probably the best A340 out there I too have passed on this as its outside my criteria...

Can certainly see it being very pricey in the future as wont be available for long from the retailers...

Great Pics Simon!!

The 1/400 versions, which I think there were 2 sold out very fast and are hard to find. So most people are predicting that the 1/200 will go fast too. Very popular scheme and plane.

there are always 1 or 2 400 scale on ebay. but they are always priced around $175-$225!!! TWICE the price of this release!!

I'm glad I got both mine on release. I believe one has the 10th anniversary decal at the front. A Herpa 400 version floating around as well. Not smart enough to contact Socatec and get the Hogan version on release. GFL finding one now.
