Re: Gemini Jets - Plastic Stabs/Tails?
Everybody likes the heft and sturdiness of solid metal diecast models, but there's only so much detailing you can do with cast metal, often wings, vertical and horizontal stabilizers are thicker than scale, blunt, and lacking fine trailing edges. So, I'm in line with the use of plastic, as long it's properly painted and tampo printed. I have a few Herpa models where colored plastic was used for flying surface parts and were not finished off with a painted coating - they are translucent. I like my older 1/400 Dragon Wings airliners with plastic wings, etc. Since models are primarily meant to be appreciated for their appearance, what's the problem? Also, after extensive work with AeroClassics Connies, I found that their fuselages are all plastic, too, and they remain the industry standard for that model type. Later, Doug
