Cool What does Gemini 'Macs' mean?

Mackintosh?
MacDonalds?
I've search on here and Googled it in vain.

Most of my mililtaries are 1/200ths or Dragon 400s, but both of the Gemini Macs that I've bought have had to be returned due to parts falling off which can't easily be glued back on.

Happy Friday!

I figured it was a play on the USAF's Military Airlift Command, or MAC for short - though I don't know for sure.

If we're talking USAF then yes, but we're talking about a collection of models.
