Your collection looks great, particularly the National 722. If you get a chance could you take a pic of the starboard side?

I enjoyed seeing your Northeast "One's the new West End Service, the other's The Fall Breakaway" timetable. I had that same issue proudly displayed for many years - good to see it again

E-bay. The Alaska TT is from 1972 it has the 4 GJ400 727 liveries printed on it , i was going to display it along with the four releases they recently made but since gemini had so many problems with the 1/400 721 mould, i never purchased any of them.

What's up with the completely gray wings on the new Gemini NA 727-235? Was this the spec to which Boeing painted them at the factory for National prior to delivery?

Starboard pic...



I'm sure that the elaine logo should be further back, it is placed inline with the port side, but i am not concerned about it, i am happy that the printing is placed evenly on both sides and the Sunking has a mouth this time.

Very very nice and thanks for the pic. The Elaine thing is well below my pain threshold (yes I'm repeating my line from SH400). Windows are in the right place, remaining livery markings are accurate and nicely done. Beautiful model that takes me back to DCA in the '70s - thanks Gemini
