Default American Airlines Fokker-100.

Requesting the re-release of this model in 1:200 scale by Gemini Jets.
Found this video on youtube and wanted to share the unforgettable polished metal. Which is very appreciated by many collectors.
This is the very first Fokker 100 delivered to American Airlines wearing the registration: N1400H/2AA.

It's a nice little model, but I think like the first AA MD80, it suffered from the polished fuselage oxidation. In that sense a re-release could be good, but I can think of many models that should be done before a AA F100 re-release.

My USAir Fokker 100 also has some pretty bad fuselage oxidation.

The MD 82 has been done and has no tarnish issues. N488AA is a beauty.

Yeah theY seemed to have fixed the problem with the second AA MD80 release. I have the second MD80 and it's great.

I'd be for a rerelease too. I have the American Fokker 100 and mine has obvious issues with the metal. It looked great for the first couple years.

A 757 polished will be welcomed...followed by a 727 with the correct cargo door. And would like to see the 727-100 mold again.
The combo would be complete with the 737-300.
That'd be great.
