Nice video Russ! I enjoyed watching it! Since I last visited LV, your brother has discovered a bit of passion/personality in his demeanor! What is his accent I'm detecting?

This is absolutely SO COOL! I've wanted to visit the GJ headquarters since I started collecting in 2003. Thank you for posting, Russell!

Thanks for posting this great video. I LOVE ADI. I go there every time I am in Las Vegas. The guys working there are great. Once you walk in, there is this guy on the front desk with a big smile welcoming you. They are so ever helpful in this store. I go to Las Vegas to visit and stay with my friends who are an elderly couple. Even they, look forward to going to the store with me. They just sit on the 2 big plane seats facing the huge cabinet for 1/200 models while I look around and shop. I got super duper lucky in this store one day. They had 3 1/200 PCM models of an AN-22 camouflage color, Aeroflot AN-124 and Heavy Lift Il-78 on display and they were ON sale. I was floored when they told me the out of this world very, very cheap price! Thanks and more power to ADI

I was watching this earlier and never realised Sam Chui collected diecast planes. Do so enjoy his videos and envious he's flown the number of times he has. Of course not now because of the virus, hope it doesn't last long both for the airliner industry and Sam.

Well it seems I got confused with ARD Models UK, my bad on that one.
Even I don't know what ADI is compared to Gemini Jets though.

Leslie, that's what I was going to say as at one point it slipped in (southern accent), but not throughout...he must be getting citified being in Vegas!

You'll get there one day! Jersey location is good as well, but do not have the full collections on display. Have not been to the Florida location.

Two of my favorites in one video... heck yes! Love Gemini jets and have been a fan of Sam Chui for some time. (His first book is on my coffee table) Will have to visit next time I am in Las Vegas.

Thumbs up Re: Video..Enjoy a behind the scenes look at ADI

Great video! Very insightful.



I have to say, my most detailed models are Gemini. Like 'reality' hit with a shrink-ray. I hope Gemini can keep that up.

This is awesome! I would die if I went in that shop! It’s incredible to see every Gemini release all in one place.
