Default Gemini future anoucement - Be aware

I don´t know if this was already mentioned, but...


I was choosing which of the 2 Etihad A350-1000 I´m going to get, the IF200 or the Gemini


Did a little googling to the GJ G2ETD883 and it came out everywere with the registration A6-BMA.


Now, this registration belongs to a B 787-10...


To me personally, after the BA and Virgin, i´m getting tired of this GJs messups

Well Well Well. look here we have another expert spouting off without knowing the facts. The registration for this model will be A6-XWB.

My guess is some dealer looked up the 787-10 by mistake and posted that registration and the rest all followed suit.

Wherever or whomever you got your facts from is wrong...May I suggest do a little research before posting... Also, maybe next time invest your time in watching reruns of Teletubbies as this will be much more productive.


So as quoted, if your tired of all the mess ups go with the Inflight, I certainly would...

FYI....The artwork for both previous A350 models was supplied long in advance of the actual rollout by the airlines. At that time the models are placed into a production que and are scheduled to come out as close to the actual roll out as possible. All final finished samples are sent to the airline in advance for approval as was the case with Virgin and BA....where is the messup????

I hope your not referring to my legitimate question about the A350’s in a different thread.

I can't hold back anymore and I have to get this off my chest...

This is one of the most toxic forums on the internet. This forum has made me completely hate this hobby. I always came here for model reviews, release news, dioramas, and just all around good people. But now it's constantly someone bit ching, liveries released a day ago having their own wanted thread and some political crap.

Russ, we squashed our beef earlier this year but as I chew on this beef jerky I have more beef than I thought. I was totally against you being a mod because you can't keep your emotions in check. I understand Gemini is part of your family, but you can't constantly say you have no connections or ties to them when you get your panties in a wad everytime someone complains about something. Given, people on this forum complain that tires aren't the right shade of black, but with you being a mod it's time to act like it. If YOU do some basic research, you would see Google does show A6-BMA on MULTIPLE retailers sites. Instead of insulting a member that wants to buy from your family business, just a simple "Hey, it's A6-XWB. Wrong registration going around." Boom. Easy. I understand you're an old man but good lord get your emotions in check. This is a hobby forum in 2019. EVERYBODY IS GOING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT SOMETHING. I could complain that Gemini doesn't release enough freighters. My simple opinion and you'd jump down my throat defending Gemini as if I gave them a witch curse.

Take it with a grain of salt. It's the internet.

What a great reply from Mr. Super Moderator! He continues to show why he deserves his position.

Been lurking on here for some months now and I plan to keep it that way, but this warrants a response. Dude, you're a straight up jerk.

Nah.

There are just too many moronic posts by people unwilling to get their facts straight before typing.

Keep up the good work Crownvic!

Is there really any need for name calling and insults? Have some respect for fellow members please.
I am not pointing at any members specifically, more i am asking EVEYONE to take a moment before posting something and think about how it might be received by others. We have all seen questions/posts where we deep down think "OK I think you might have been high when you wrote that" but that does not mean you can respond like a [email protected]£ because you think you know better.
Now i know we are not all going to have a big group hug and have camping weekends together but please have some respect for each other. it goes a long way.

Welcome back for now Skosh how was your break?
BrianG2k welcome to the forum ....for now...Nice first post JERK.

First, as moderator I can lock this thread, delete this thread or delete wisea** comment posts too, like calling someone a jerk...but I won’t ..

Let me explain my position, my response wasn’t one of moderator but from someone close to the manufacturer .. if it had been NG Aeroclassics or anyone other manufacturer participating here, I’m sure they too would have responded strongly ..the OP started the thread with BEWARE .. this to me is a strong warning that he is advising the members of this forum that someone or somebody is out to get you and doing harm. .however all of his facts and accusations were totally wrong. No one messed up and no one did anything wrong.. in this case Gemini.
Next, I was accused of coming on to strong and could have taken a more gentle easier approach, well so could have the OP in his thread title too..

As for my moderating... the position was available for months and no one wanted it.. we did a poll knowing my affiliation with Gemini as some members expressed concern of a bias or favouritism and it was recommended that I give it a shot. Yes my family owns Gemini but I have never anywhere on this forum altered, deleted or changed any post for or against any manufacturer Gemini included..I have several pm’s from members including a few from those that were skeptics and voted against my moderating thanking me for keeping it fair.

So for those outspoken critics who think I overreacted I offer zero apologies because all you are doing is stirring the pot.

As AK would say .... NEXT!

Except it was... because you are a moderator. You should hold yourself to a higher standard.

Are you getting enough fiber? You seem even crankier than I remember.

Crownvic is doing a fine job with managing the post. I agree that one should know the facts before mouthing off by trying to scare off people from buying a model or models no matter who the maker is. We all have eyes and can make that decision for ourselves. This is strictly my view just to make it clear.
Russell was just pointing facts which he is aware of since he has ties with ownership at GJ.
This is just a hobby to me and I own I’m sure many models that are incorrect but to my eyes these things are all miniature works of art!
Let’s stop jumping the gun and if not sure about something as far as GJ releases go we all have a guy kind of on the inside so let’s ask him what he knows about it then start the doomsday messages if the answer is not satisfactory.
Enjoy these babies for as long as we can until we run out of room lol 😂

Tell you what boys - none of you are qualified to moderate - it's a thankless job, not one for egocentric jerks, and Crownvic is doing pretty well. I usually say don't criticize someone's work unless you are willing to do it yourselves, but most of you haven't a clue, and wouldn't know where to begin. Grow up. Doug
