Default 1/200 GSE update Part 2

I asked, they said some wheels are moveable, but too many small parts and difficult to assembly, the KLM set will be limited because extremely slow in production, they want to make more but no capacity.
Will be shipped by the end of this month.
BTW, I can see 2 of them may be oversized but overall look good.

WOW! Those looks terrific.

I think the wheels on the fuel truck and van are a bit large, but otherwise very impressive.
This GSE needs to be released in a white livery and come with Swissport, Servisair or Menzies stickers to be able to customize it realistically.

What excites me even more though is that Gulfstream sample, been wanting models of those for a long time!

I love the tugs. I will for sure buy them, but the truck and van are awful. I had such high hopes that we would finally be getting some good realistic gse. Very disappointed. Sorry.

Will they be sold as a set or individually?

I had to double check to make sure it was indeed a Gulfstream! The nose gear, enhanced vision system pod on the nose, and the little fairing at the v-stab root seem to match that of the G650!

Yup def the curves of a G650. The most stunning biz jet flying around.

Agree completely. The cargo pallet tug doesn't look good to me and the van not only looks terrible, but also looks out of scale (way too large)as well. The cargo containers look WAY out of scale too.

I've been waiting for a hydrant fuel truck for awhile and a fuel semi forever, so these are welcome. Some additional hose detail on the hydrant truck would definitely enhanse its appearance. The deicing truck will also be a welcome addition. The towbarless tug as well as ALL the tugs looks great, but I'll pass on the rest unless they are to be only sold as a set.

Oh my! A G650! Nice gee too, but I hope the scaling gets corrected. I would love to have a gulfstream in my collection. Maybe a Pilatus PC-12 next?

Totally noticed the Gulfstream mold too! As for the vehicles, I think they all look pretty awesome, though the van is slightly out of scale when you compare with the trucks, still, good effort otherwise, I'll definitely be getting a few of these, I'd also like to see some heavy cargo handling equipment (and a Cargolux 744F)

Some of them look really promising and you can tell that there has been some hard work. I hope they will be available individually.

Finally they will be packed like this, good to know you don't have to buy all if you hate one or more, just pick the appropiate combination.

I'm definitely in for the packs with the towbarless tug and hydrant fuel vehicle, plus the semi-tanker. I'll have to think about the rest. Maybe the pack with the de-icing rig too.
