Default Questions about gemini jets 1:200

My first question is are there any 1:200 or smaller manufacturers other than dragon wings that make planes with gear up options.

My second question is didn't gemini jets make a few 1:200 planes with gear up options? If they did, why did they stop?

Thanks everyone, Eric

In diecast, for whatever reason, it's mostly the widebodies that have removeable gear (both Gemini/JC and Inflight200 do, and haven't stopped). Plastic Hogan 1:200's typically have separate gear as well. But narrowbodies only rarely have them.

Isn't the 767 a widebody because DouglasDC5 said that the gear for the kc-46a(which was based off the 767) was fixed

if you want 1/200 narrow bodies with gears up, your only choices are the plastic ones by hogan/limox/lupa. Most gemini/jcwings narrow bodies are fixed gears.

Which is kind of a shame because it doesn't have to be that way. I don't see any technical reason or difference on why not.. Maybe it costs significantly more to do a mould with removable gears vs fixed and no one wants to pay for a narrow body almost as much as wide body?

dragon and some jetx based on dragon moulds are the only 1/400 ones i know with removable gears. Half of my 1/400 collection are from dragon just for that reason

For Diecast 1/200:

Gemini/JCWings 737 have removable Gear
inflight200 Airbus A320 have removable gear (Gemini/JC version does not)
Both inflight200 and GeminiJets/JC have the removable gears on the A310
Gemini/JC 747 series has removable gears and Flaps up/Flaps down Options
Gemini/JC 777 Series has removable gears and Flaps up/Flaps down options
Gemini/JC 787 Series has removable gears.

(I don't own a lot of 1/200) but I believe the
JC/Gemini A380 also has removable gears

GO to JCWings or GeminiJets if you require a 1/200 model with removable gear options or even flap options. inflight200 is mostly fixed gear except for some moulds like the A320, A310. Inflight200 however will be more heavier and expensive (But compared to the recent surge in Gemini200 prices, the IF200 is worth the price then)

The point is, as you can see from JagT's list, there really isn't any consistency. He missed another one - Inflight 777's also have removable gear (at least, newer ones do). I'm sure there are others we've both missed. But I stand by my point, that it's mostly widebodies in 1:200. Wildpig is also correct - in 1:400 only Dragon Wings and some Jet-X (wherever they used Dragon moulds) have removable gear.

Some InFlight 1/200’s have magnetic detachable undercarriage plus a set of doors for gear up configuration. This A319 has this option, but not sure about their other smaller airframes. The 1/400 is by Aeroclassics.

Did gemini remove the removable gears option for their p-8(navy 737)?

Thanks for the clarification. I only have jcwings A321 as well as a geminijet a321neo and they don't have removable gears unfortunately

The Gemini 737 MAXs have fixed gear as well, but the Inflight 200s are removable.

All my Inflight 747s are all displayed on the ground due to the lack of tilting and removable gear. Don't know why they haven't updated that.

Same, I don't like their stands and the placement of the hole for mounting them. It's rare a 747 is flying totally level gear down. Lol

None of my IF 747's even have a stand hole. Have they changed that?

EDIT: I take that back - my Iron Maiden Ed Force One does, and you're right - it sits level. For some reason I thought that was JC Wings
