Smile 1/200 scale jetbrige and GSE

How can we add preassure to gemini or herpa to make a decent 1/200 jetbridge! Perhaps it is easier for gemini as they already make a very good 1/400 jetways. We really need more GSE as most of it is either out of stock or sold out (herpa stairways) I really think there is a good business niche for getting these out on the market. I for instance would get at least 4 or 5 jetways, 2 or 3 tow trucks, no less than 4 catering trucks! Lots of conteiner loaders and buses and of course stairs and fuel trucks. I'm certain than there are more people like me waiting for these to come out. I have sent emails to gemini and I invite you to do the same and create massive chains to show these companies that there is business out there for these items!!!!!

Happy collecting
Alfonso

...You know the customer base for lots of 1:200 airport equipment probably isn't very big, right?

Catering trucks, sure. Loaders, stairs, etc. Maybe. Jetways? Probably not in very high demand.

There's always the choice of buying a military GSE kit that has a similar scale, you know...or making one yourself. It's a lot cheaper (since one pack of 1:400 jetways cost $30, one would assume that a pack of 1:200 jetways would be AT LEAST $60 and probably higher due to the amount of additional detail required), and don't worry when you screw up.

I have some 1/200 jetways made by a fellow DAC member, they were very cheap and they are nice. Seems like they were $10 each.

I've made my own 1:200 jetways which can be seen in my thread here.

http://www.diecastaircraftforum.com/...w-project.html

But I'd support any manufacturer would decided to make them. I'd buy up to 20 narrowbody jetways, and 5 widebody.

Count me in for 10+ if they're realistic. In 1/200 scale GJ200 should be able to produce a very nice product.

Agree with original post... I would buy all of those items mentioned....Its impossible to get the stairways nowadays...and Im not very handy to make my own stuff....my hands tremble too much, so I would end up with botched up jobs :P Good thing Im no surgeon eh? :P

They make them in 1/400 so why not 1/200. I would be all over them. Plus 1/200 Terminals, hangers, etc...
