So what's happened to the Lufthansa B748 "Retro" and KLM B773 as advertised on their site.

If the B6 isn't the exact same aircraft as the Velocity then I will get it along with the AA 175. I'm excited for the 737-300 winglets! I would take one in SWA previous livery and their new livery along with a Canadian North.

No 747 classic? Hardly any 1:400 747 classics are made nowadays--and Gemini's new mould is pretty good, if not Aeroclassics. And they aren't using it?

The 'Siegerflieger' is the one i'm curious about since I did pass up the Phoenix example to get the GJ version.

Nothing for me this month, How much times GJ can release DELTA & AMERICAN 772???
I prefer phoenix, we see new carriers everymonth (The Tarom 733 from April, wow!!!) and the high-quality models that better than GJ.
Everytime GJ releases the same: AA/KL/EK/DL/SW. Sometimes there're someting nice - but not more than that

How does the Gemini A320 mold compare to PHX and AC's? Does it have the usual cradle wing assembly?

I personally think it is the worst of the three. The cockpit shape is odd, and the landing gear looks clunky. It's not so bad that I would refuse to have one in the collection, but only if it's in a livery that's not available on AC (1st preference) or PHX (2nd).

I like this offering better than the previous few months', and I will order a few of them.

Does anyone know if N401YX is an ERJ-170, or a new ERJ-175 mold?

I know Gemini says "ERJ-170", which legally speaking it is, at least per the FAA, but the ERJ-170-200LR (ERJ-175, or E-175) and the ERJ-170 are not the same length.. If anyone knows I would appreciate it.

...ERJ-170-200LR (ERJ-175, or E-175) and the ERJ-170 are not the same length..
The difference in 1/400 scale is 0.175 inches (less than a quarter of an inch) - I can't see them making a whole new mould for that little of a difference.

I hope we'll start seeing more E70/75s, E90/95s in the very near future. It seems after the KL E90 came out, there hasn't been another since then. IMO, those will sell very well, and quickly. Same for the E70/75s.

I agree. I can't believe corporate-volume maker Gemini hasn't done, for instance, US Airways or JetBlue, EMB-190's in 1:400. I think they'd sell quickly, too. I'd love to see an Air Canada EMB-190, as well.

Maybe once US Airways' EMB-190's become American, Gemini will make one?

100% absolutely. I've been waiting ever since the KLM model came out, and I bought the first two US Airways E-Jets.

I really wish we could've seen more ERJ-145's too, it's my understanding the molds were lost.

Considering there were many BAE 146s made, more so from JetX, I think it will be a given to see a ramped up production of the E70/E90s.
I know there are a couple of Azul E95s coming out in the coming weeks in 400 scale. I bet they will be a hit, especially those who have large collections of Brazil's airlines.

I would guess the reason that nobody, Hogan, Herpa, GJ, JC or PH released the LH B748i "retro" was that they did not have the name or "City of ........ " yet. I don't think it was applied to the 1:1 until after it reached FRA. We will probably see them for May, Jun and Jul and Aug depending on the company. The anniversary celebration was cancelled because of the Germanwings accident.

Such a true word spoken!! They have such a good mould (like with their MD-11s), yet they never use it!!

I would like to see a Air Canada ERJ 170 made as you already have the mold and have made other Air Canada's.
To bad you won't be making a West Jet Disney in 1:200.
