Default Gemini Jets 1/200 Eastern Airlines 757-225 N205EA

The Gemini Jets 1/200 Eastern Airlines 757-225 N205EA joins my collection. Great looking release, and another job well done by Gemini Jets. I really like the bare metal, and the overall finish. The cheatline has a matte finish, which i really like and it just looks like a shrunken down version of the real bird. Hope to see more non wingletted 757's and an extended flaps and slats version. Enjoy!

I will miss the nice hard cover boxes that Gemini 200's were packaged in. Nevertheless, elegant packaging and still very well presented.

Just curious, do you mean these boxes that are kept closed with a small magnet, like my GJ Eastern 727 came in?

Cheers , deephalo

Isn’t it such a great model! Always loved the very blemish free bare metal on this the older version. I’ve heard (still don’t have) that the old Gemini200 AA 757 has a similar finish. This Eastern is so nice I actually bought a second, beat up one with some glued parts showing.. that’s something I never do.

Hi Deephalo! The box flap for this release is held with velcro. All my other Gemini Jets boxes have a buttoned flap. I must admit, the button flap made switching out the models on my shelves much quicker as opposed to standard boxes.

The box on the left could likely become the box for future Gemini Jets 1/200 narrowbody models. The box to the right is perhaps the last of the hardcover boxes that we've enjoyed since 2009. Opening these boxes made you feel like you were opening something so grand like jewelry. Gemini was the first to give this sort of experience to collectors. Another company is Calibre Wings who makes fantastic F-14 models in 1/72. Gemini should consider keeping this unboxing experience, at the same time protect these beautiful models in storage and i really believe that the experience of the hobby also comes with unboxing.

NOTE: I've no idea why this image was upside down. Click to see enlarged image and right side up.
L to R: Southwest 737 released in 2010, Southwest 737 "Classic" released June 2021, both boxes made with a hardboard covering, with button flap. Eastern 757 released July 2021. Note Eastern box has changed to an all cardboard construction.

The 757's have been coming in that type of box for a while now. All the Icelandair and Delta examples I've gotten in the last 3-4 years have for sure.
