looks pretty white to me. The only black I see under there is what I would assume is supposed to be windshield wipers.

It is supposed to be black under the windsheilds, but there is no black on the model.

Shame, it would be good to have the black under the windshield but its not a deal breaker for me, somebody in another thread posted a photo of the 767 without black when first painted, I guess this is what led to the issue if Gemini started production before the black was added...

Looking forward to receiving mine, I may look at adding the black under the windshield with a decal in time... will see :)

Yes because of time constraints at the factory when this plane was first rolled out of the hangar the photos supplied by the airline did not have the black..

I just checked my 1/400 version and sure enough no black paint under the front window. Not sure how I missed this. Still a good looking model.

** late edit. I went back to see if I could find any info/pics without the black. I couldn't. Even the computer generated video they released long before they took control of any planes had the black under the windshield.

In the pic in this article the plane arrived with the black paint as well. This picture was taken shortly after the first 767 landed in Calgary I believe - painted and cabin ready. They also live streamed this on Periscope. (Delivery landing and the day after a tour of the cabin). You can find the cabin tour on YouTube. Filmed Ina. Hangar and can see the black as well.

See the delivery article here. http://worldairlinenews.com/2015/08/...th-a-new-logo/
