Default Gemini new release hints july 2015

As the weather grows warmer in the Northern Summer, the days get longer
so there is much time to enjoy your collections!

For JULY 2015, there will be 18 releases, 8 in 200 scale, 10 in 400 scale

200 scale
#1 This polished tri-jet would wave the flag from Coast to Coast,
#2, While this modern freighter, usually gets filled with boxes the most,
#3, A trilogy of luck follows those who like 8, but this beauty would make
even Mao Sai Tsung look great.
#4, A retired Jumbo always looks grand, but you wont find this one anywhere near Raand.
#5, The British tourist loves flights to the sun, on this beauty Varadero will be calling with fun.
#6, If you like your Pho spicy and hot, this elegant beauty may turn out to be the best shot.
#7 A simple Mad dog is getting rare that you see, but this little cutie might
be running until 2033.
#8 It's passenger cousins are long since retired, hopefully another decade before these are expired.

400 scale
#1, #2, Two Military models have never been seen, this desert version looks great on the C-17
#3, For aircraft spotters, its not much a fuss, their standard reply will be
oh look an Airbus!
#4, A Latin diversion is always quite nice, pick up this version with some
Samba and rice.
#5, The Soccer folks be naughty, that much has come true, tis a pity this
wont be around come 2022.
#6, #7, #8, A Boeing trio comes looking quite great, here you get a 3, a 7 and followed by an 8.
#9, Pho's little brother also comes true, this shapely new aircraft is really brand new.
#10, The grandest of Boeings, All will come See, tis a pitty there will not be a further delivery.

This is supposed to be fun, if you dont like it, dont read them.
Complaints may get you sent to "The Cornfield",

400 6,7,8... must be a 737-300, -700, and -800 in Southwest new colors, right?

Dang, I did NOT need those to come out all at once. Especially this month.......

I was hoping for a United 737,777, and 787, but the Southwests seem like a better chance.

Hopefully #10 is the Lufthansa 748 in the retro scheme. I think they just recently took their last 748...

I think so too. Still waiting on the "Siegerflieger' they said they would be doing. I passed up on the PHX version to wait for GJ to finally put theirs out.

I think it will be a Lufty 747-8 in Retro colors. I hope one of the military planes is another KC-135 in 1/400.

a 3 pack Southwest new colors would be great. They have painted a few -300's in the new color scheme.

The Southwest 737-300 and Delta 737-800 for me. I've noticed the Southwest NC is the same registration as the Blue Box 737,
N708SW.

A Pan Am 727? I didn't expect that at all! That and the Vietnam 787 (both 1/200) are of definite interest to me.

Probably going to pick up that C-5M as I didn't get one the first time around. Not sure why they didn't represent Travis AFB as they've already done Dover.

The new 737 molds look *horrible* IMO. If anyone wants the old Southwest 737-300 in Canyon Blue, I'm currently selling a spare one eBay. Winglet free, of course.

The Southwest 733 is using the PH fuselage from what I can see - also noting the nosegear. The PH 737 is tripe and a waste of metal.
The 73-700 appears to be a new mould - would like to see some better pics before deciding.
Perhaps the VN789...maybe

It often fuel stops at Prestwick Airport so meets my 'local airports' collecting criteria and the BA sharklets A320 is now a regular sight at GLA. The question next is, who's gonna sneak out a new colours Easyjet sharklet A320 ?

Pic is a bit too bright. I have seen other pics and it's the same color as our GJ A350. No worries!
