Thumbs up

The long awaited "Sleeping Beauty - Rejuvenated" has arrived!

An exceptionally majestic, big and beautiful Airbus A340-600 (Reg: G-VNAP), released by Gemini 200. Model number G2VIR732.
I’ve always been impressed by the 300 and the 600 variants of the A340 family. Among a few other, these were always my favorites.
Too bad these were taken out of service, earlier this year.

I stumbled over a nice ramp tour video of the Virgin 346, its really nice, worth watching. See link below.

The model has all the features and details you would expect from Gemini, more than I can describe in words, so I will let the pictures speak.

Please note that for some reason, my pictures could not truly capture the vibrant, bold and beautiful metallic ruby red color on the engines and tail.

Many thanks to my beloved wife for buying this model for me! Thanks lovey!

Thanks for sharing. Nothing can beat seeing the shimmering red on the VA birds! Nice addition!

I'm surprised that's not been produced in 1:200 scale diecast metal. Such a beauty. But it took quite a while to get that livery on a 1:200 scale diecast metal 747.
