That is a neat collection. I think Inflight could massively enhance their DC-9 models by just adding some proper front wheels.

Your models remind me of the time when I was a regular visitor to Houston.

By the way, I love your dog.

I'm still waiting for mine to arrive, so thanks for posting some good pictures of this release. I'm glad to see that they corrected the cockpit windows since the TWA (hollow title release) which was incorrect. I agree GJ and JC DC-9's are very nice indeed.

I'm with you on Ozark, and Bonanza needing to be released. I'd also like to see Continental Golden Jet as well.

Beautiful model! I also love the GJ DC9. I have both of the TWA releases and they are outstanding (twin globe and twin stripe). Sometimes I wish my new twin stripe had all the polished features that the twin globe one has such as engines, wings, and the horizontal stabs. I have even considered swapping the parts, or buying a doner DC9 to cannibalize for its polished parts :-) I wonder if anyone has done something like this.

I have to agree, Gemini does a splendid job on their DC-9s. I have 4 in my collection currently, and that number is bound to grow. I'm hoping for a New York Air DC9-30, and on their MD-80 line, TWA!

I agree. TWA twin stripe MD80 by Gemini has been the single most wanted model for me since I started collecting back in 2007ish. I have been waiting long enough to say the least lol.

That is a beautiful bird, back when airlines had imaginative liveries with color!

Yes indeed, we need one from Gemini in Bonanza. Sorry to have missed-out on the TWA "Twin Globe" release, will have to search for one on Ebay.
