Default 737-300?

What are the odds of a United (Saul Bass), Delta (Widget), Western, Piedmont, USAir, America West, or AirCal 737-300 being released in this scale? Shocked they haven't already.

It would be nice if Gemini put some use to their 737-300 mould and developed a non wingletted tooling. A United 737-300 in the saul bass colors (go ahead and throw in a battleship gray United, a Continental red meatball livery, a Southwest in mustard rocket colors, Delta in the Widget livery, and a US Airways in the dark blue) would be instant pre-orders if ever released.

Delta Widget, Continental globe colors (both with and without winglets), America West, and American are all "flown ons" for me, so those would be instant buys.

My instant buys, fittingly, are my 3 favorite liveries:


USAir 3 Shades Of Rust
Delta Colors In Motion
United large titled Saul Bass


Would probably buy a Continental globe as well

JCW does have a sensationally good mould - BUT: like all other classic moulds they only do F***ING (sorry but i do not get that, as the market is given… just look at IF200s lineup) use it twice or thrice per decade!

No 737-300 line without Lufthansa in delivery colors! D-ABXM would be great!

I'm with you. Just add a Western Bud Light and you've got all the high points.

Seriously, the 737-300 has been neglected for far too long. Good molds are already available. (JC wings has released some beautiful -300s in the markings of non-U.S. carriers.)

It's very hard to understand why almost no -300s have been released in the liveries of U.S. airlines. Hopefully one of the manufacturers will soon wake up and fill this huge gap. I'm certain that there's a LOT of money to made by the one that finally does.

This one is on my holy grail list. An instant pre-order it ever happened. Just looking at the mustard color and that "back in the day" design really brings you back to the 80's / 90's. Gemini Jets, please make this happen!

Yes! to the Western 737 in either a Bud Light or in White. Another fond memory when I went to LAX.

I really hope these great ideas get released.

Both these are a must for the 737-300 mould. Both big european players in the late 70's and into the early 90's. The Air Euorope has only been done in 200 version fro ARD.

Seriously, I would come out of model buying retirement for a Piedmont 737-300. I started working for them in 1985 when they first started taking delivery of the -300. I've flown on so many of them!

I'm with you. We badly need some variety. (Too many boring 777s and A350s; not nearly enough legacy aircraft and airlines.)

My collecting has shifted almost exclusively to military aircraft in the last few years due to the lack of interesting commercial releases. But some 1/200 737-300s could get me back immediately.
