Default GJ/JC pls make the P8 Poseidon in 1:200!

Hopefully I'm not the only one wishing to get a model of that beautiful military aircraft!

I didn't know what a P8 was until I called traffic for one (I'm an ATC). After I gave my traffic spiel, the non-P8 pilot responded, "What's a P8?" I had no idea so I just said, "It's a type of airplane." He didn't find it funny. The P8 guy finally said, "We're a 737." I said, "It's a 737." The other guy still didn't find it funny.

I'm guessing we'll see one once there are enough squadrons/operators to make it worth GJ/JC's investment in a new wing mould.

You can count me on that list..... Who wouldn't want a 737 with torpedoes and missiles?

I would go for one too. It would fit right in with my other 737s.

Other than a few fleets, (mainly AA, Delta, KLM and United) I tend to collect types of aircraft, so this would be a great addition.

I hope if it is done they add the antenna arrays too. Otherwise it looks like a drab C-40.

That's the whole point, if not it's a C40 with raked wingtip...

I work on the flight-line on Eglin AFB and I see the the P8 quite a bit. Unfortunately I cannot take pictures due to top secret stuff but they look great up close and in person. I really hope to see Gemini make this

I'd buy at least 2, one for me and one for my dad (although he was a P-3 guy)

At a recent Houston airshow, a crew member told me that P8 is a 737-800 with a -900 wing.

I don't know what you're talking about, I was speaking to Rod at GJ yesterday about this exact plane and he wasn't convinced just yet.

Part of the problem is it's a whole lot of grey...doesn't even touch the P-3 for schemes and operators yet.

Lots and lots and lots of tooling adjustments and investments would have to be done to make this possible. But hey, I'm all for it, I want it too.

I saw the phototype already and really want to show you some images, but just not allowed at this moment. But I think the drawing will be fine.

Same for the A330 MRTT. They produced it nevertheless.

Look, this is a case where I'd love to be wrong, and if I am that's great! It's just that when you're in the office of one of the directors of the company we're talking about here, and you directly ask for this, and directly receive a noncommittal/no answer questioning the validity of the market reference all the changes necessary...it wasn't vague and sounded pretty negative to me. So this is news. If it's for-real, then I'm excited, I was asking for it for a reason.

Who knows, maybe it's some industrial maneuvering and showmanship or something, I'm just a guy who stops by the shop whenever I'm in town.

Valid point, but we're talking a different scale of mould changes here. Unless it's a new from-scratch mould.
