Is my Gemini 727’s nose deformed?
A while ago I bought a Gemini National Air 727, as it was the only Boeing 7x7 model that I didn’t have in 1/400th. A while later I saw a Gemini Dan Air 727 and bought that, as I’ve wanted any Dan Air model for a while. However now I’ve got it, I’ve been staring at her for ages thinking there’s something about it that I didn’t like. Yet they’re both from Gemini 727 moulds. But either one mould has a different shaped nose than the other, or maybe it’s an optical illusion from the shape of cheat lines. I think that the National 727 has an attractive round nose, and the Dan Air model looks like the nose is flattened.
What do you think?
Have they come from different moulds or am I imagining it?
If so, do you think the National one looks better?
