Eastern doesnt look too bad. I was worried about the turquoise blue from the Gemini intro pic.

I love the Eastern 'Hockey Stick' livery, but unless the 'new' Eastern has changed the blue color with this livery, the blue looks off to me. Other than that, it looks like a nice model.

If the turquoise looks a little off, it's because the turquoise on the new Eastern is a little different from the original Eastern on the real thing, too. GJ did it correctly.

A co-worker of mine was in Miami and saw the new Eastern 738. He was unaware that there was a revival and he was shocked to see it. He thought maybe it was a fake plane for a movie shoot.

Good to see that GJ is improving a Good looking to the 737 nose shape. Hope they can do the same with GOL 737-800 coming in the next month

The -800 hasn't changed and the -900 is fine. It's the -700 that was modified. The earlier -700s were fine too. Not sure why they changed it. Looked way better before!

The GOL should be fine too.

yes, indeed! I think they made a very good job with the GOL 737-700. In the last years the model become one of the rarest and valuable models of GJ200 series. But it had a weird nose. hope they can repeat this good job with a better nose for the -800. And now, I'm hopeful and excited for a better nose looking seeing these photos.

The GOL -700 release was on the previous mould before the modifications.

The two since the modification are WestJet and the Southwest new colors. The nose is really funny looking on those.

Oh look, American's tail looks just like Virgin's winglets.

I've added the Virgin America to my collection... GJ have done a nice job with it... I've noticed more on recent Airbus releases that the APU exhaust is a solid piece rather than an actual exhaust, only a small bug bear but would look better if more realistic...

I have both of these. The Eastern was relegated to the back of one of my display shelves. The Caribbean Blue is too green and the Ionosphere Blue is too dark.

I like the Virgin but it too suffers slightly with regard to color accuracy. The red should be more of a ruby red. But at least they got the pearl paint correct. I also recently received the Skymarks Supreme 1:100 scale model. It is beautiful and highly recommend it. I love Virgin America and can't wait to fly them again on Cinco de Mayo.
