Nice to see a Bae 146-300, don't think Gemini did the 300 last time round, whereas Jet X did ? Looking forward to seeing the new colours Air Transat A330 as well.

As I understand it JC probably have access to the Jet-X 146s. China Eastern is nice - China Northwest, who this frame started its career with (1992-2003) would have been even better.

Default Re: Gemini 200 April Releases

Isn't this April list a somewhat short list of Gemini 400 releases?

In any event, little of interest to me, but probably good for other interest-groups.

Air Koryo--Gemini already did Air Koryo's 00's livery, but this is different livery variant, so may get it. Always good to see a classic mould out. Given that Gemini doesn't use the classic moulds a lot, though, would have preferred a more classic livery, like an early Aeroflot IL-62 livery, 1990's Air Ukraine, or TAROM. Maybe another month.

BAE-146--great to see the mould out. But, a USA Deregulation classic like BEX-Business Express, Royal West, or Aspen Airways; or, say, the BAE house demonstrator livery, would have been much preferable to yet another contemporary Chinese carrier. Maybe another month. Chinese collectors can enjoy (same for the Sichuan A320).

American, United, Delta....current aircraft, already forgot which, rinse, recycle, repeat.....fleet builders, enjoy.

Malaysia A350....already done?

Let's see the MD-80-series, Convair CV-580, and Shorts 330 / 360 moulds used!!!

I agree. I am almost 100% certain that the IL-62 and 146 are made for Skywings. They had been advertising the IL-62 since before Xmas as a Skywings release and it fits recent Chinese releases from Gemini like the CZ Saab.

The Sichuan A320 is rather pointless since Panda already made a pair on a far superior mould.

Also, given Aeroclassics' love of Canada, I suspect we'll see an Air Transat 2017/ 2018-livery A330 on their excellent mould sometime soon.

I'd say that's a given, probably Phoenix too although they tend to get the colour all wrong outside of primaries.

The last one were done in special Negaraku livery.

This time, standard livery.

Really looking forward for this, as MAS were believed to have stop carrying good quality models from GJ & Hogan/Skymarks for their inflight sales.

"Amen. Some great models await us this late spring and early summer." Aha - we finally get a great United Airlines Mainliner 737-200 to replace that Sovereign zinc rot pig... Doug
