Starting off the month of February with the Gemini200 January 2021 release of the British Airways Concorde G-BOAB.

This year it will be 18 years since the last commercial passenger service took place between New York-Kennedy and London-Heathrow on 24 October 2003.

Nice looking Concorde, I'll take a Negus 'British' thanks. And it'll be 18 years since that final flight, actually. I remember watching G-BOAE depart EDI that day.

Me too from EZ Toys. You have yours displayed like mine. Supersonic flight, the only way it should. Although I probably will take some pics with the gear on for fun.

Edit: Did anybody experience issues with the exhaust nozzles? Mine were tweaked but I carefully moved them with toothpick tool.

That is because it is sold out for GJ HQ. With GJ & JCW Concorde models you know exactly what your going to get by now. A excellent model and one you have to pre order straight away to secure, otherwise procrastination is available behind the afterburners and on ebay for what Robertjohn said $1000.00 bucks

Yes me too gear up thanks to see the aircraft's flight profile. Don't ever touch the thrust reverse buckets unless you know someone with younger eyes and steady hands

Nice but you really need a Qantas concorde in there.

Posted before but the Gemini does do inflight mode well. Just wish Gemini would pull their finger out and do Old Air France, British Airways Negus and British Negus.

I am with you 100 percent Aviaction that's exactly what I am waiting for Air France delivery colour. Also Negus G-BOAC and the remainder of the Chatham Dockyard livery G-BOAA, G-BOAD, G-BOAE & G-BOAG and I will grab a Qantas one on GJ/JCW tooling thanks as Qantas still holds four options to build Concorde and Qantas never cancelled their options like every other airline.



According to this youtube video, if Qantas called in their options to Airbus, they would have to build them. Of course this would never happen but the orders are still open on their books or are they? see youtube video here --> Why No Other Airlines Ordered The Supersonic Concorde...

Got mine together with the Korean A380 a few days ago. Both models are gorgeous and I am lucky with my decision of pre-ordering them. Even though the Concorde is still available for under 100EUR in some shops in Europe the eBay fooling has already begun: Gemini200 Concorde on german eBay

I am thankful that Gemini and other manufacturers release some of their most wanted models from time to time with a different reg to give every collector a chance to get them. Just be patient. It is also a try to stop changing our hobby into a business for some smart asses.

I was worried about this, but mine came with all the nozzles still on the plane. I just had to carefully move them to their normal position. (used a wood kebab stick lol)

Not touching them ever again!

I bought one Friday at Arcunia in The Netherlands. It is very very nice.. it is not actually allowed in my collection... so it needs to be replaced later by the Air France version they will release in the near future....

The BA one sold out in now time.. so perhaps they will realize the hunger for these models is big.. and release a Air France one.. it easy as it always had the same livery when in service... (except the Pepsi one)

Air France had the old Seahorse livery on it at first.

I may be mistaken, but I think only one AF Concorde wore the Seahorse livery. But there are several AF and Concorde experts on here who'd know for certain.

Nice overview of liveries which flew.. I know there is also a heritage site with all the info but can not find it in my bookmarks anymore.

If only KLM would have had them.....

I think you're right. I could have sworn it also had BOAC colors, but I guess not.
