Panic stations for a second there, but alas the Gemini brand uses the JCW mold anyway, I guess it makes sense seen as they make most of the other NW stuff. Maybe we'll see a 'Worldplane' special and a NW Cargo 742F too...that would be pretty sweet

Sad news. I even bought a GJ NW B722 in the same livery last week to go with it.

NO reason to panic then! Same mould!! It will be the same model just released by different brand.

Although I look at JC/Gemini as one and the same. They work very closely together on releases.

I will believe this when it becomes an official announcement from GJ. But also, if they do make it, who knows when. I was looking forward to having it sooner than later.

I wouldn't think this would change the release date by much. Just releasing under a different brand.

I'll bet this is part of a 2 part release by Delta. Releasing the 747-400 in NW colors, then in Delta colors.

JC, GJ, don't care, I'll be adding it for sure... the bowling shoe 744 is a classic combination which reminds me of my younger days... one of my very first models as a child was a Northwest snap fit 747... will be happy to finally have in Diecast

Now to check with my on-line retailer to make sure he is converting the order to the Gemini model. I'm sure he is.

I saw on eztoys that the model was converted to a Gemini release for the June timeframe.

GJ and JCW working together, due to license issue, this one will be released under GJ.

If Gemini 200 is releasing this NW 747-400 Bowling shoe, than is it maybe also possible to ask for the Gemini 200 757 Bowling shoe as well... Please..???

If it's a joint GJ/JCW together, can JCW still supply the stands with the plaques on?

Bowling shoe DC-9-30 is needed more than anything else, they had zillions.

Yes this would be a great gemini release. I don't think it's anywhere on their radar so I just settled for the inflight200 version.

Sorry for digging up this older thread, but just curious if there has been any update on the release of the GJ B744?

Eztoys says a June 16th arrival, but not sure if that is still current. Anyone else have some better info?
