Default TWA MD80's

This model has eluded us for way to long. Do you think we will see this anytime soon in 1/400?

Twin-stripe we need, this last livery is in much lesser demand, a small fraction compared to twin-stripe.
Also need 90s Continental..

Yes indeed Deltas and Alitalia, and AA - 90s grey livery, and only then GJ can go back to its normal function producing corporate hazarkak.
Must feel good to dream...

As well as Ozark, Swissair, Alitalia, SAS, Finnair, all the Continental Schemes that flew with it.

There is a ton of potential in this mould.

Which is unlikely to be realised through Gemini. Additionally remember that this mould has the screwdriver tail which rules out several of the better schemes and all actual delivery frames from before about 1987

I have zero knowledge of how molds are made, but would it be possible to "tweak" a mold master into an old version as well at low additional cost?

Sure would like that Frontier!

A small fraction? Kinda wondering what you're basing that on. There are plenty of people who do like the final TWA scheme as well. And by final scheme, I do mean the blue underbelly version, not the AA-hybrid - just to be clear.

I would take both twin stripe and final scheme. On the final scheme make it
N964TW the last MD-80 made?

This was already debated and it is a matter of conjectures. Gemini's business seems to be driven by airlines. Therefore, I do not see it that unlikely that sooner or later Delta and TWA MD-80s will be made. As you know well, a widget MD-90 and a 767-300 in TWA's twin stripe livery were recently released, despite the originals are both long gone from aprons.

Disagree. Truth is that several of airlines mentioned above vanished or phased out the equipment before or around 1987: Ozark, AirCal, Republic, Northwest, TranStar, Frontier. All of them were somehow short-lived and, most likely, their MDs only existed in the original "pointed tail" version. On the other hand, amongst the others cited, at least these could definitely be made on the existing GJ mould.

Continental: Final livery
Delta: Delivery, Interim, Deltaflot and current livery
TWA: Both twin stripe and final livery
Alitalia: Delivery, final livery and charter Eurofly livery
Finnair: Both delivery and final livery
Swissair: Both delivery and final livery
SAS: Delivery, final and low-cost Snowflake livery

I find it hard to believe that these are not be included amongst the best and/or the most interesting schemes. A few of them were seen around for one or two decades.

I don't disagree with you Tony. However Gemini slipping out 3 or 4 MD80s this calendar year in Delta and TWA colours is a poor return on the mould. I think most of us on this thread will have to wait until another manufacturer slips out an MD80 mould before we are satisfied.

The final scheme is a must-have for me since I actually managed to fly on one of these before AA absorbed them.
