GeminiJets 1:200 March 2017 Hints
 
Here they are, just posted on GJ's Facebook Page:

1/200
#1) She has a sister with shiny new colors, but this one isn't so bad, you can't give her druthers.
#2) It's about time this was added to the fleet, some people will even say, Sweet!
#3) The Queen of the fleet she will become, will she ever serve the land of the Rum?
#4) Her Sisters will be moving further East, no doubt she is still a beast.
#5) A dash and a slash of silver appears, you bluey fans will be, like Cheers, mate give us a beer.
#6) A color she has reminds of split pea, but with dark bread and vodka, who can see?
#7) Oh this one will be really hot, better get it now, or you will not.

These aren't hints. Most of these could apply to any plane in any livery.

I agree. I've pretty much given up on guessing because of the poor hints.

They would be much more interesting and fun if they gave you a fair chance of guessing correctly.

Erm....... last one a virgin, G-VHOT, maybe, possible. Ok maybe not. These clues get worse. In the old days I actually used to get some of them.

#6 sounds like S7

billville 03-02-2017 05:37 PM

re: GeminiJets 1:200 March 2017 Hints
 
Yup...I've got nothing. I'm just hoping one of these could possibly be a JetBlue...

#5) A dash and a slash of silver appears, you bluey fans will be, like Cheers, mate give us a beer.

No doubt a Qantas something or other. The dash of silver refers to the new livery and the reference to 'mate'.......well that's what I think mate!

#2 - either a BA Landor 772 or a BA 763 with RR engines. Not that the clue necessarily fits, but just because both are long overdue IMO.

I think you are right as well. crownvic had sold his off just recently and I assumed it had to do with a re-release of this bird.

True. Guessing the new livery on their T7 birds will be later this year or early 2018. Cheers! T7

#6 has got to be something Russian, but otherwise I have no idea.

I think #1 is the 787 in the old Air Canada colors since there is already a 787 painted in new colors which would be her sister.

Releasing an old color 787-8 when they recently released old color 787-9.
That's very poor planning on their side then

She has a sister with shiny new colors, but this one isn't so bad, you can't give her druthers.

Hmm. If they had said 'she has a little sister....' then we might go with the B777. Ah, I'm batting at 50% with the DAC hint threads when they are posted. So, I will just be patient and wait for the official release statement from Gemini. I'm sure crownvic is sitting at his computer with a big grin on reading all the DAC replies in this thread. Cheers! T7

That's a pretty good guess SHOT, I don't see why NOT, since only 1 bird flew with the reg G-VHOT. Just which particular livery will she be wearing for the collector LOT? ;) T7

Air Canada 777 re-release with new engines. Ice Blue color

Virgin Atlantic "Hot Lips" 747-400

Just my thoughts for two of the releases

travsuz 03-02-2017 11:01 PM

I'm kinda interested in getting new color Air Canada 787, but I think this month will be too early.

V-Hot aka Tubular Belle. Now stored. Only time will tell :envy:

Be nice to see one of the following:

BA Landor 767/777
LTU MD-11
Aer Lingus A330

Couldn't guess on any of those 'clues' though, although yeah, #6 sounds Russian, and green, so is probably S7.

Kelso49 03-03-2017 01:25 AM

re: GeminiJets 1:200 March 2017 Hints
 
# 8 has to be the long awaited BA 777

I'd second that LTU MD-11 but I think we'll never see it, definitely not by GJ maybe JC one day.

I think GJ has seen the light! 7 Russian airliners.

Well, BA 777 is neither long awaited nor does it corespond to hot

23053 03-03-2017 04:50 AM

re: GeminiJets 1:200 March 2017 Hints
 
Oh oh I think I have one, number 7, I think is S7 airlines, guess an a320.

Edit...... just noticed another member guessed the same. I promise I never saw the post. It still counts.

5/ Qantas 787-9
6/ S7
7/ G-VHOT
First 4 have to think more...

I'm really interested what hint #2 will be! maybe LH A321 or TWA 722, it could be anything, well we'll have to wait & see... ;)

Baerke 03-03-2017 08:20 AM

re: GeminiJets 1:200 March 2017 Hints
 
LTU md11 would be lovely...Fingers crossed!!

Rockybudgeboa 03-03-2017 08:51 AM

re: GeminiJets 1:200 March 2017 Hints
 
I am hoping at least one will be a 747 :) Even though I am literally out of room here, I can always make room for a 747

travsuz 03-03-2017 10:34 AM

Re: GeminiJets 1:200 March 2017 Hints
 
Hoping for a JetBlue or Alaska release.

Gunship01 03-03-2017 11:07 AM

Re: GeminiJets 1:200 March 2017 Hints
 
The hints are all describing the BA World Tails. All 747-400s.

I like the idea!

:)

Surinam Air 747 03-03-2017 11:15 AM

Re: GeminiJets 1:200 March 2017 Hints
 
#7 sounds to me like some very Hot Chick or Victoria Secret model! :p :p

okay i'm just having a moment, i seriously hope it's a MD-11 model, at this point i'll take any airline that has flown MD-11 aircraft... :rolleyes:

Widebody 03-03-2017 11:16 AM

Maybe something American Airlines polished or heritage liveries. Dunno which one though.

I'm able to determine 8 of the 7 clues. I'll let you know when the releases are announced if I'm correct.

Taiga04 03-03-2017 12:42 PM

hoping #2 is a US Airways A319 in the standard livery although I'm not holding my breath.

How about having some fun. Why don't you provide 'hints' of your guesses on the Hints for March 2017. That way we can try and guess what your answers are based on your hints on hints. :D T7 (or you can also reveal them when the hints are officially no longer hints, but the real answers)

That's interesting, i never thought of the U.S Air A319 but if it's true i want it to be in the older livery below...

Would be nice to get the 777-200LR, but for me it doesn't matter because the color they use for AC is so inaccurate that I have to pass up on all the releases since the A321.

mt8667 03-03-2017 02:06 PM

Re: GeminiJets 1:200 March 2017 Hints
 
Finally! #7 must be a Piedmont Henson Dash 8!:) Based on these clues, I'm not liking the odds of any of these releases being of 80's vintage.
