Default Inflight vs Gemini A320

So I saw some complaints about the nose of the Gemini A320 and specifically the A321 being the worst.

I'm not a nobody can do no wrong kind of guy. I think Gemini has made some clunkers. I really don't like their CRJ-200. Since the models below are US Airways, I think they really messed up on the earlier US Airways releases. Specifically, the 757, the first A321 release, & both A320 releases (Hudson & non-Hudson) -- the white just isn't white and to me it really stood out to me when I had those releases and I sold them as a result.

But, I really don't think the nose shape for this particular model is that big of a deal. These are closeup photos. In fact, they are so close up that I realized after the fact that one of my shelves really needs to be dusted. I observe these models, from what I feel, is an average distance and one where you wouldn't really notice such things until you really want to try to find something to not like.

For me, if it bothers me enough where I can see it without an up-close inspection then it bothers me enough where I won't have it. The original Gemini US Airways A320 releases fell into that category and I got rid of them.

Despite all of that, including United 727 battleship that I think most agree is way off...they're all difficult to find these days so apparently, for most people, it does not actually bother them.

Competition is a good thing and it makes everyone improve. I think the Inflight A320 is better. I don't think the Gemini version is's just not as good.

Anyway, to each their own.

The older releases were ok, it's the recent ones that are a joke.

I find the printing of the window line to be a bit too high on the Inflights A320s. The printing of the red stripe and blue is a bit too high on the US Airways A320. The red stripe stops and then continues above the wing when it should line up with the leading edge.

In my opinion, the Inflight200 A320 îs the best there is!
Inflight200, did a super fine job, being able to reproduce some of the finest details, features and characteristics of the A320.

I have one in my collection, in the classic Canadian Airlines livery and it’s a stunner!
