Great model and great shots. Can't wait to see an RR-powered 75' from Gemini; hopefully CO and AA are coming soon!!

Woaw citjet,
great shots and great models.
I already have the Continental 737 and I wait to receive
my Delta 757 next week. According to these pics I won't be disappointed
at all.
Thanks for sharing it.

Lots of people have been doing this since Gemini started the 1:200 line.
Including myself

Since Gemini have come into the 1:200 market, collecting diecast 1:200 models has become affordable.

my quote was a bit ambiguous
i was not talking about the detail but rather the affordability
it does require a budget...

I agree with all, and would suggest N602DL for the subject!

I received mine too.
I am very pleased. Surprised by the narrowness of the fuselage, but then this bird is never seen in our latitudes.
it's just the tail which is slightly skew.
have to admit that Gemini found the best compromise between cost & quality, this model is a winner.
Think I will get another one

GREAT PICS!!!

Also I just flew on one of these recently and enjoyed the inflight entertainment very much ... also made a very smooth landing into SLC!

TAKEOFF from DCA (Reagan National airport)



LANDING in SLC (Salt Lake City)
