Russ, is that CRJ mold and new JC/GJ tooling or did they work out an agreement with NG? Gotta say the latter seems unlikely. Either way glad to see it, it’s a must have!

I think the EK A345 is an interesting release. Will preorder it.

I am looking forward to seeing a Westjet 789 perhaps next year?

Mind you, the Emirates A340-500 seems interesting but I have not bought a new model in almost an entire year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Silver ATR would be great in 1/400.

Emirates A340-500 is interesting. -500 is the best A340 version. Wonder why Emirates wants these models now, haven't they retired this airplane?

Really, I don't see any difference in the antennas between IF or GJ. Both manufactures do great models of the E4B's, however, I do prefer gear up options though offered by GJ. As you can see I have one of each (both are different tail numbers) from each manufacturer.(Sorry for poor picture quality) The model displayed with gear up is the GJ version. Both are excellent models packed to the hilt with details. I see Sam 29000 (Call sign Sam41 for the 41st President) That carried George HW Bush to Washington to lie in state has been modified yet again with yet another hi tech sat dome. If GJ want to re-release the 2018 version I will be more than happy. This is the most modified 747 that is constantly evolving and changing, that understandably, exist today. It has to be.

Huh, really? So because of a few slightly "larger" antennas on the GJ, you where however willing to put up with IF's unrealistic engine and pylon shapes, general odd 747 nose shape, inaccurate wing box etc.?
That I find fascinating!

I'll be picking up a few of the releases for this month and November as well but I'd like to see some classic airlines or liveries like Canadian Airlines, Pacific Western, PAN AM, Braniff etc. with the molds these days being pretty good in my opinion.

Wink Re: December Gemini 200

I understand that it is sometimes hard to decide beetween the B747's from IF200 or GJ200/JCWINGS

For me I have from the B747's which I realy love the versions of both manufactures.

And therefore the new GJ200 B747 USAF E-4B could also make its way to my hangar in the office at FRA (here I have all the double JCWINGS versions to be put on a stand as they don't have that realistic wing flex to be presented on the ground... )

All good. It's great to see all of these GJ releases anyhow StillAir, and back to topic, the Emirates A340-500 will be popular I expect. New tooling!

Aussiejets, I am thinking that this will be the JC mould. New for Gemini but not a brand new mould. This will be the first A340-500 for Gemini in 200 scale, I look forward to seeing the Emirates.

Makes sense on the mould. But why a release of an aircraft that was retired a few years back?

That notwithstanding, I do like the JCW A345s, so this tempting.

So people can buy it?

Not all Emirates releases have to be corporate orders of current types.

I was thinking the same as ZuluLima, no corporate order, simply a collectable made by collectors for collectors
