Default Such a deal!!

I can't believe my good fortune recently! I was able to purchase a new Gemini Pan Am L-1011-500 for only $75! I had given up on adding one to my collection because they tend to sell for $130+. I came across it completely by accident on eBay.



AND...thanks to T7_4ever, I was also able to add the Gemini United B722 to my collection! (Thanks so much, T7!) I only have three more B722 models on my want list (that have been released). Hopefully, I'll be able to add them in the near future. The sun is shining in Seattle and it's a great day!!

Hello, KLM4me

The two models are very beautiful and stunning. I still can't believe you got the 1011 for such a low price! I had to buy a GJ 737 for 75!

Not sure if you think this too, but I think GJ does their 722's nose a bit off, and the 1011's nose a bit too strange. Otherwise, excellent models!

I know! $75 is about what these models sold for when new!!

Yes, the nose on the B722 is slightly pointy and no manufacturer has been able to perfect the L-1011 nose, but that doesn't matter as much to me as color accuracy.

I like the GJ's one the best. I hope they will release an AC 1011 in the delivery colours or just the regular AC (red and white stripes) livery.

Great finds. The UA 722 is one of my favorite models I have. I bought it for a decent price on eBay 2 years ago, and have seen it on eBay maybe once since. It's strange how certain rare models never appear on eBay while others rare ones do but sell for $$$$$$

Well done, Randy! The Gemini Pan Am L-1011 is one of my favorite models and remains one of the best diecast L-1011 representations out there.

Great price on the Pan Am L-1011. It is a terrific model, and one of my favourites in my Pan Am collection.

Did it actually sell for that? If so, that's crazy!

Which one? The PA? Or the UA? Patience, patience. Or in my case, just plain luck and being online at the right time.

And the first release 747, and the two 727s I have, too!

That's saying a lot, knowing how large your Pan Am collection is.

I know how you feel. I had this model when it was first released and had to sell it.

Thanks for all your kind comments, fellas.

Congrats! Nice finds!

I would love to be able to add the Saul Bass United 727-200 to my collection. I have the GJ Saul Bass 757, and am hoping for a 767-300 and 747-400 to be released this year in those colors.
