Default Some Gemini vs. Inflight 767-300 comparisons

I got my copy of the TWA 767 today and I thought I'd put some comparison photos up. My biggest complaint is that it is very tail heavy. Regardless, I still think both Gemini and Inflight do a fantastic job.

Looks like TWA nose gear may be a little short. If it were sitting on the nose gear it most likely would have the dragster look as it already looks like it is slightly pitched down in the front. I haven't tried mine on gear and currently have it displayed on stand, wheels up!

I think it’s more to do with it being tail heavy but I have a pack of small magnets that I can add to extend it.

Yeah, now that I look at it closer tail heavy is the issue. Have you tried tweaking the main gear carefully? Magnet up front would work too!

I don't think anything can be done to the main gear. I did add two magnets to the front gear. It extended it but it didn't really do anything to solve the weight because it's really tail heavy but it did extend the gear. Adding a third magnet would make the top of the doors extend below the fuselage.

Fan blades on the Delta don't look as good as the TWA really do they?

Me too re fan blades!

Extra magnet worked well. She is a beauty!

Both look very similar from the photos. Gemini could have utilized its 767-300 mild more frequently... now the competition is here. That TWA looks great, engine fan seems to be slightly more detailed. Waiting for a Martinair Holland or LTU Süd which would definitely be my first Inflight 767-300s
