Default Gemini Jets 1/400 Hints (Jan 16)

1/400
#1) Thats Amore Bella Signora
#2) Born in Cascadia, down in Amazonia, Ole King Tut
#3) Man, that is one sweet looking bird, too bad she will never be heard.
#4) She used to sport the Duck, now she might help you if you are down on your luck.
#5) Sporting new colors, she looks slick when wet, every now and then, she will venture to Phuket.
#6) Samba, Tango, these move your feet, but you probably wont find this anywhere near St. Pete.
#7) Lions, Tigers & Bears, oh my!
#8) This Jungle Jet flys around alot!, you can make sure they are making the most of the slots.
#9,#10) The new tools come in packs of four, what is great is if they open the doors.
#11) Born in the 60s, the colors were wild, this one looks like somebodies step child.

I always get excited about the Gemini hints and the models never quite match my hopes.

#1 Alitalia A320 or 777?
#8 must be a US major regional ERJ
do #9 and 10 suggest a new mould for something with 4 engines?
#11 - a classic release? the stepchild reference could be related to the saying 'red headed stepchild' but what is red in the 60s and also wild?

So much hoping for the Concorde from the movie Airport 79!

I have a feeling this refers to GSE i.e. air stairs, loaders that have an open door effect when placed against the model.

I think #8 is a BA E190. Making the most of slots makes me think of London City Airport

Good guesses. This is more likely and would gain a big fat 0 purchases from me. The clue for 11 is a bit off if you are right (which I suspect you are) as the livery on the retrojet is from the 80s. Are the colours wild?

Interesting to see what is different about the jetbridges if that's what they are.

#7 sounds like a Frontier A321. I'd rather take the spirit.

Air Cal was founded in the 60s, maybe that it what the clue it referring to.

I have been patiently waiting for jetBlue E-190s for a very long time.

Make it happen, Gemini.

I think the clue refers to the slots at Long Beach... I think you're going to get your wish.

This thing will sell out quickly. I know I plan to order one myself.

Ironically the much anticipated WN 737-800 in the new c/s is still available and has not sold out in preorder. That is because the new 737 mold is awful. I hope Gemini will go back to the old mold. While not perfect, it was much better.

With the 737 nose having 50 year old DNA, still that same darn old 707 nose, you would think manufacturers get it correct by now. Sadly in 1:400 currently all of them make a hash of it. To praise Phoenix for being the best of the worst is to quote Jeremy Clarkson "Ooh good I've got syphilis, the BEST of the sexually transmitted diseases".

If you don't like the clues, you've nothing to lose, by staying in bed and having a snooze. I like a good pun, the clues are good fun, so quit whining pal, or I'll go fetch my gun ! ��

If today was the 1st or the 2nd or 3rd, I say yep I'm being absurd
It now the 15th so based on that fact, it's time they got off their azz and try to react.

According to a post on GJ's Facebook page, the announcement will be next Tuesday. Sounds about right. New release announcements have usually followed by a week the arrival of the previous month's selections.

I thought jetBlue doesn't send E190s to Long Beach anymore?

even if so, JFK and DCA would still work.
