Good looking Delta. As I have said many times, we need more 767s around here.

Great models highly detailed.

I am working on a Hasegawa Air France B 767-300 with GE engines ...
I have lost any hope to have a die cast model so I am making my own.

The 722 looks great. Did GJ modify the frontgear? ….look more accurate now imho.

Wonder if they'll do an Air Canada 767 as an homage to the last flight of the aircraft in their fleet

The AA 727 is a beautiful model. I’m glad I pre-ordered mine because most retailers have already sold out!

Love all of the Widget models as of late. Now if only they'd do another 752 and reissue the Spirit of Delta 762, or just another 762 in general.

Very nice widget indeed, a re release of the widget 757 indeed would be very welcome.

Checked most of the mainstream retailers last night and a number of them are out of stock on the Astrojet! Gemini Jets site does not yet show it sold out! If you are on the fence ya better jump on this one to avoid paying above retail!

The Astrojet was more of an impulse purchase on my part as it doesn't really fit my criteria. I figured that if I didn't like it, I could just hold onto it for a little bit and then sell it for hopefully some money. I'm pretty good about losing money on this stuff but a broken clock is still right twice per day.

Artic9048! Love it! I always lose money on this stuff as well, but not as bad as Crownvic!

A few releases will bring more than I paid for it, but many more of late go for less. It used to be a collector could turn stuff to put towards new purchases without having to reach too deep in the wallet, but over the last year or 2 this has not been the case! I am way more reluctant to pull the trigger on a model than in the past! Not a money making venture so much, but don't want to put too much more in it then the $150K to $200K I have in it from past purchases. I think many contributing factors are in play for the current resale market!

Habu968 & SeanGulden, I agree re Delta. Would also love to see a TWA 777 World Colors in 1:200!

Lovely releases, waiting for mine. We've had a widget influx lately, maybe it would be nice if we had some Ron Allen Delta releases!

Both the AA and Delta look nice. The Delta widget livery is a true classic.

Yeah, I would definitely buy it but I doubt it will happen. I've got this at the top of the stairs.

Is that a custom you had made Russ? Or do I have no clue, and it has been done?

I was on the fence on widget 767-300, I prefer the shorter body -200, but bought it anyway. Real glad I did - it's a gorgeous model.
