Didn’t see this posted anywhere else... Apparently an Airplane Shop exclusive.

Didn’t Aeroclassics release this one already?

Here’s a quick side by side comparison. To me the Aeroclassics looks incredibly plain

504 units made. (Confirmed by Airplane Shop) This will be their "first and only" exclusive release as quoted from the person I talked to. I've ordered my own copy and they just received them along with the new GJ's on October 23 2019

A little while but I think if it’s listed on eBay it’s some clown blasting it off as super rare and charging double the price. Best to just buy from their website directly to avoid having to pay some clown double the money for the “SUPER SUPER RARE” exclusive model

The AC mould is still better than the GJ one IMO, and that photo makes it seem a lot more washed out red than it really is.

Sounds like more of a story behind that...hmmm

Aside from the colour, the Aeroclassics release looks much better. The shape of the engines, the lines on the fuselage where it meets the wings, the landing gear - particularly the nose gear, the APU... most of the details when it comes to the actual shape of the plane. The shield on the tail looks a lot more defined and clear on the Aeroclassics release, and the "Blue Bravest" and GPU hookup at the nose of the plane are positioned too high on the Gemini version. Actually, all of the markings and windows on the fuselage of the Gemini release look to be too high. The only thing the Gemini version seems to have done a better job on is the colour itself.

Just to add my 2 cents, these are not new moulds by either company and it is widely agreed that the AC mould is over all better, despite the bigger features of the added parts like the gear, satnav dome and ailerons of the Gemini version, the AC mould itself is better. The print work on the Gemini looks better to me.

I agree in the moulds... but what’s better about the Gemini printing? I think the colour is better (if this photo is truly an accurate representation of colour), but otherwise... I am certain the detail and placement of the print work is better on the Aeroclassics model.

It's tough for one dealer to move 500 pieces. I'm sure we'll see these availabel at other retailers soon.
