I have a friend who flies for Canadian North,who has a very respectable Hawaiian Airlines fleet. Needless to say he is giddy with excitement about its release in 200 scale. I wonder if Gemini has plans for "Impulse" from Australia? I always liked that livery. My guess,Delta or Midwest is next.

Yes, definitely getting the TWA. Sounds like a popular model, wonder if it will sell out fast.

The 717 looks like a nice model, but I'll wait until it is released in Delta livery.

After building the 1:1 scale MD-82 and 717-22A in Long Beach, these are both must haves!!!! I've patiently waited on the new GJ200 Twin-Jet mould. The Mad Dog Twin Stripes is definietly a nice surprise. This what I Love about this hobby.

Hoping for a OC Finnair MD-82 for X-Mas, if your listening GJ's Please, Please ?

I am hoping that we will see an AirTran 717 in the future as well! I am super excited for the Hawaiian one though, I can finally finish off my Hawaiian collection!

Thumbs up Re: Finally a TWA MD-82 and Hawaiian 717

I'll second that motion, Citris717!

Although, when (not if) GJ200 releases their first FL (AirTran) 717 on their new mould, it definitely needs to be FL registration; N938AT.

The significance of this particular reg is that it was the very last and final 717-200 to be built in So. Cal ending a 40 year production run of the Douglas DC-9 serise.

N938AT can now be seen in service with Delta. Hint, Hint GJ's!!!!

You built some awesome aircraft and I would prefer that McDonnell Douglas was still in business today. I wish Boeing had not killed the MD-90 and 717, so quickly, I feel that they would have had a lot of potential in todays market. Especially the 717 or as I prefer the MD-95. There were a lot of DC-9 customers that would have bought that aircraft, to fill the same roll, but with current and more efficient technology.

Finnair MD-82 I'll take that for sure.

Great story about being the last bird made in Long Beach. I'm hoping that these sell well so that we get a whole bunch of new 717 releases. AirTran, Delta, Midwest Express, TWA, etc..... There are a lot of good ones that's for sure.
