Default Gemini Air France Concorde - request

Dont usually ask, but I think Gemini need to release another Air France Concorde. They have done 2x BA Chatham and 2x BA Landor but only 1x Air France "Bars".



Anyone care to support this?

I think Air France issues are handled by Socatec.

Yes. I have gone a bit mad. As well as all the Hogan and deriatives
I stupidly bought a Gemini Chatham and then a Landor. Just picked up a BOAC JC wings copy. Not bothered with the Pepsi or Singapore but thinks would be nice to have an Air France.

Yes all of them. I do care to support this thread Aviaction. Including delivery colours please. Enough of being on the back burner (Laugh please that was attempt at light humor). GJ first AF Concorde F-BVFF is the first and last so this is it. Just look at the contour lines on this aircraft gear up options too thank you very much! Time for some more please GJ. Most of Concorde collectors went for Hogan / IF. Sadly,that is why the future releases have stalled I expect Aviaction . Shame though GJ/JCW tooling is superior in my opinion. I can't state that enough, but it it's up to collectors

^^What a fantastic front quartering shot Aussiejets!!! Showing off the unique lines only Concorde possesses.
I am personally waiting for the Negus colours, probably not the most popular scheme amongst collectors, but certainly needed to complete the BA family tree.

I'd like one, I skipped the first two, but I don't care for the 'barcode' livery, it just doesn't pop out to me at all.

The old blue Air France scheme - did the first Concordes ever wear that?

I know it's out there as an Inflight or Hogan or whatever, but I'd prefer optional gear and the moving visor that you get with the Gemini/JC mold.

Also, same for any of the prototype/developmental aircraft schemes.

just disturbs me that GM/JC got the APU wrong < for such an expensive brand this is something you'd expect to be placed accurately.

Other than that the mold is quite good yes, just be careful when trying to move the reverse thrust buckets, they can eaily come loose and seems to be hard to get back on.

GM/JC has too many delicate parts, how Herpa Wings did their Tu-144's that would of worked for Concorde as well, but i guess this idea was dropped due to the extra blast shield Concorde's have I guess.

The Barcode rules. That is the only AF livery for me.

I've currently got the G2 Landor and thinking of adding another, but some of the rtb's were loose in the box and took ages to put back on, so I'm unsure of adding more, but apart from that another AF would be nice, I just wish they would have the rtb's fixed in place!

Yeahthe RTB's and the APU needs correcting for the rest they are pretty damn nice to have around.

Just nothing from me yet doing a retro 3dfx gaming PC rebuild for some classic games & flightsims

I am happy with my classic Hogan Wings COncordes G-BOAE in Landor Livery & F-BVFC in 1980's Air France livery, two old models but extremely rare these days especially G-BOAE hehe

I have never been a fan of moving parts on our models.

I am very happy with my Hogan Concordes too.
I also have HAM AF and Negus BA Concordes, these models are forgotten but they are not so bad ...

I have never had any issues with the RTBs on my Geminis. I am saddened to hear that many others have. I believe that the Gemini Concordes are the benchmark at the moment and I'm completely satisfied with my babies.

This be an early version Mr Burns, but it has been done. Back when this JCW Concorde model was released, gears where fixed like Hogan

Nice pictures of the beautiful Concorde.
Yes, more Air France Concordes should be released and perhaps on the next release, they would consider removing that annoying APU detail on the tail cone...

Great photos as always Aussiejets!
