beautiful model and well made. unfortunately the JCW version 's cheat line is so low that the 757 looks weird.

I have this model too, plus the recent JCW release. Many of the original release models had crooked cockpit windows when viewed from the front. They slanted down on the left, but good landing gear. I modified mine with some after market cockpit window decals to correct the problem. It looked ok, but no where near perfect.

The recent JCW release had the new style fixed landing gear that have issues. The niose gear is skinny and loose, and the main gear on my model and those at of at least a few other members arrived with badly crooked main landing gear. It was a real shame because I was looking for a better model to replace my original release with the crooked windows.

I also own this model and as your pics describe the awesomeness of this beauty. Can't say anything else. Love and miss those accurate landing gear details. The fan blades used to spin as well.

Mine also has slightly slanted cockpit windows but it's something I can live with. It's still a beautiful model. Only the real thing is perfect.

For the JCW version, I ended up carefully snapping the gear doors, and gluing them slightly flared, as not to disturb the wheels any longer. I still think it was an inexcusable defect by JCWings.

The Gemini...easily one of my top five diecasts. They nailed the gray, and the mould is superb. I would love for the Gemini brand to release every United Battleship that ever flew. Not JCW.
