Question Just curious

Is here some one knowing if, when and from whom an Easyjet 737 can be expected? I would like to have one in good quality and I can't find any. I looked through some old threads and found a thread about a sample from GJ, but never seen one.

I'm guessing that we'll see Gemini come out with it sometime as they do have a sample of it floatin around:

As you probably have seen, I am quit new on this forum. Can you tell me what a sample model is (I know what a sample is, but I would like to know what a company is doing with a sample and where a collector could look for this kind of samples) and how long it can take between a sample is presented and the actual release is there?

Thanks

Cynically speaking: it can take forever.

Usually, the first clue that something is about to be released is that some people sell "rare samples" on eBay at horrendous prices (up to US$1,200 each). Sometime ranging from weeks to months afterwards, the model shows up in the usual retail channels for its regular price.

If you see a sample offered on eBay, sit back and wait for a bit; your model will probably be available soon.

Well the sample I posted above, was made by Gemini Jets.

Samples are usually made so that the company (in this case Gemini) can show the airline how a particular model will look. The airline in return has to either approve or dissaprove and action is taken from there. From what I know, there are no 'offical' way of obtaining samples other than Ebay; usually they're given to friends of the companies. And as BHL mentioned it can take any amount of time for one to be released....

Hope this helps,

Well I don't exactly what catagory to look for, but in the search box, you could just type: Gemini Jets sample or Dragon Wings Sample though right now, there aren't any samples currently listed.

OK thank you for this information. I am not used to use ebay, therefore I have made this request.
