Default Gemini 200 Southwest 737-700 Missouri

Here are photos of the new release Southwest 737-700 Missouri model. These photos were posted by Todd Michaels on Instagram. Certainly looks like the mold is revised and the nose is fixed. Thank goodness! I really hope we get a re-release is of the Southwest 737-700 standard colors. And hope we get a Tennessee One and other cool southwest special colors.

Ugh the nose gear door still sucks, but the biggest issues with the mould are at least way better now. Still, it shouldn't had been that bad since the beginning.

I wonder if it's just not pushed in all the way in the photo?

Yeah the nose gear just doesn’t look pushed in all the way. Overall that model looks real nice, thanks for sharing!!

The problem has been the nose gear doors themselves recently. If the nose gear assembly isn't pushed in all the way, that would make the model sit very tail high when it is pushed in the rest of the way. My guess is that it is the gear doors.

Also, but the nose gear doors are too large and don't flow with the fuselage. Compare it with an older gen Gemini 737 and you will see how much finer and nicer the original nose gear area was.

Still....this is a MAJOR improvement over the last -700.....maybe that's why only 2 releases were done on that terrible mold. Maybe we will see more now.

Thanks GJ for taking the necessary corrective action to revise and free up this mould, so that many other -700's can be produced, as well

I'd love to see a new Mustard Rocket (aka...Okra) 737-7H4WL on this revised mould. I'm kind of curious as to why we've only seen a single SWA 'Okra' release (ref., G2SWA067 circa 08) from Gemini?

True, but why fix terrible to "still incorrect"? They could have improved it to be pretty much perfect, yet opted to go the lazy route and do the same changes as their -800 series which I am still avoiding. They look strange, especially next to my 2008 series 737's (AeroMexico, WestJet).
