Default Gemini 200 Delta MD-88 widget vs Jet X MD-90

Got the MD-88 as a Christmas present this year. For full disclosure, the nose on the MD-90 had paint cracks when I received it and I tried to fix it as best as I could. I was a late purchaser of the MD-90 a few years ago and the final retailer that had them only had two. When I received the first one, I emailed him and he looked at his other copy and said it also had paint cracks so he offered me a refund but I decided to live with it and I really wanted the Olympic version. So if you notice something then that's what it is.

Great comparison. I also got the MD-88 as a Christmas present and got the regular MD-90 release earlier this year. Both of them are great but the black nose seems to be more correct on the MD-90.

Very nice comparison and shots! Where did you buy your tarmac plate?

Thank you. I got it on eBay from some seller in the UK.

Very nice models, this is certainly one of the best classic liveries.

I typically always like Gemini stuff better, but wow JetX did a MUCH better job on the nose shape and cockpit window printing. Gemini botched that one pretty bad in comparison. I like everything else about the Gemini better though.

Nice comparison. I particularly like the different engines on both models. The Jet-X MD-90 really looks particularly good with those V2500 cowlings. It's hard to see any aircraft that doesn't look good in the Delta widget livery, but the mad dog looks particularly smart. I see them pop up on eBay from time to time, might have to pull the trigger one of these days.

+1, I totally agree.
