I ask as today the original published release list (as published here and on Gemini facebook) is now in fact also published with retailers.

Kindest regards,

Good question... When the original announcement was made some particular last minute details with Hawaiin airlines had not been worked out yet internally as it related to public relations and the distribution of models

Zulu Lima was also in the wrong by asking MML "..who's pcoket are you in exactly?" That too was uncalled for.

Obviously it was not a Joke for ZuluLima and "free speech" and "not being censored" is something which a lot of people on this forum proclaimed as virtually sacrosanct after the Charlie Hebdo attack.
I believe that he has a point when he mentions that sensoring something which was put in the public domain by a manufacturer should not have been done on a model aircraft forum.

So you calling his posts a joke, giving him drama, comedy and musical awards and claiming other collectors who agree with your view are "smart collectors", thereby implying that he is not a smart collector..
Well, you see how that escalated things further. It was not perceived as just light banter. A situation of one vs the other was created.

Yes it was a mistake. People make mistakes, but you can't revise history.
You accept the mistake and hope it blows over quickly.

By the way, if you ever reach Cape Town, and this country hasn't imploded yet, then we can have a drink together and talk about the madness of Model Aircraft Toy collection.
I'm sure you are a nice chap and we will have much in common.


Side note: I donate to an No-Kill animal shelter and support animals as far as my time allows. They can't speak for themselves, so that is why I chose them.

The "life" ban which you are thinking of was a couple years ago and was issued by the heavy hand of your pal GARUDAROD, the Kim Jong-un of moderators. Thankfully, cooler heads prevailed, and when the forum came under new control/moderation, a bunch of the idiotic bans done by Rod were reversed.
Having multiple bans regardless of terms is not good .. Also post count will be higher for someone who joined early on..

FYI- Waffle now also has the Hawaiian 330 & 717 in 1/200 & 1/400 up for pre-order on his website as of this afternoon.

The photos showed on the email, but not on the web page.

Pass the popcorn please.

I'm guessing one retailer posted them and the other's followed to not miss out on the sales. If I had to guess, just a guess, Gemini still does not want these models for sale. A vendor blowing a new branding announcement for a corporate client is never a good thing. I understand their efforts to have the initial mistake removed from online.

Sounds like good news....as we will get these once the issues are worked out. Excited for both of them, plus hoping an A321 will come at some point.

I was under the impression this forum was all but dead. But seems there's more activity than on 400Scale.

[Ok, going WAY WAY off topic to the thread title, but I am trying to answer a question. It might even highlight certain issues which probably needs 'the wisdom of Solomon' so solve]

I don't know, but I suspect it has something to do with the Military forum on DA.C.

Since RJ switched over to "the dark side" (Military), well, it has been tough.
The 'civil' side of DA.C is somewhat civil, the Military one can go to Defcon 5 in seconds.

On second thoughts, scratch that. The civil side of the forum at times is also not conducive to civil discussions.
There are hot buttons in both 1:400 and 1:200 section with different manufacturers camps.

Then let's not talk about the "bastard child" of DA.C, which is the General Squawk Talk section. You need to have a weekly appointment with your shrink to work through a visit in there.

(Disclaimer: No offence is meant to anyone who was born from parents out of wedlock. I find the idea of calling a person a "bastard" because of that to be bloody stupid and offensive and the term should not be used towards a person)

Intersting.....only forums I visit her are 1/200 and the 1/200 For Sale page. Occasionally I'll look in the custom page, but that's it. Never visited the other pages.
