Pre-order based on a photo of the actual 1:1 aircraft? I don't think so. If it's using an existing mould, I'd at least like to know which mould is being used. Photos of the model would be more convincing. I will purchase this model if it resembles anything close to an NG 757.

Presume NG as I am pretty certain they were asking for info on this scheme on their facebook page.

Hopefully we will get the next round of hints for NG's next releases soon..

Check the seller info. Their ONLY other items are GJ products, and they're based in Henderson, Nevada. Just a rock's throw away from GJ/ADI.

My own bet would be that it's an unlicensed GJ product, using a name that closely resembles the brand name of GJ/ADI's boogeyman.

I don't think its a GJ/ADI company since their too "pure" and have thrown many punches at NG not too long ago. Its probably a NG pre-announcement that someone just renamed to not throw obvious hints. I remember that some stores listed the NG United 787-10 New Livery and Etihad green 787-10 before NG themselves had officially announced it.

Another collector just messaged me, and told me this United 757 comes in a white box. If that helps?

This almost proves my point, word for word.

When GJ makes unlicensed models, they always release them under anonymous brand names like "DreamJets" for the Patriots 767-300. Given how these two United 757's were done by amateur artists and are promotional aircraft, I'm guessing the licensing was particularly difficult - seemingly impossible - to get.

And you are absolutely correct, GJ loves to bash NG. How would making a close-semblance of a fake brand name not be *exactly that*??

Unmarked packaging?? How curious.

To be clear, the issue of licensing - or lack thereof - didn't bother me before, and it doesn't bother me now. If NX is indeed a GJ/ADI ripoff brand, then whatever. Doesn't bother me that they're unlicensed. Those 757's will almost surely be popular.

Also interesting to see that GJ (seemingly?) is first to market, this time. Compared to the reverse, when NG released the United 737-800 new colors first, and GJ issued a bizarre appeal to customers on their social media pages.

If this truly is a Gemini/ADI company, my already stricken respect for Gemini/ADI has now gone down even further. Nothing but a bunch of old hypocrites if this turns out to be them. "White Box" That sounds like something JC's factory would produce which also produces GeminiJets, but since GeminiJets holds licensing to United, JC is not allowed to produce it and no one in his factory is either. I am hoping the seller probably just miswrote NG but truly sad if it turns out to be Gemini/ADI regardless of popularity.

And revealed concurrently with the regular GJ releases, with similar May lead time.

Waffle has this for pre-order under the GJ section, so I think the jig is up. I have no complaints about them making it, but less high horse act from now on please GJ

If this so called nx models is Gemini than it is hugely hypocritical considering that Gemini have criticised other companies for unlicensed releases. It's not much of a surprise though as they have a history of unlicensed releases *cough* *cough* Donald Trump 757

Indeed, no one should be surprised by the hypocrisy. eBay seller DiecastJets is an almost-exclusive GJ seller and now that other retailers have it listed under GJ, it should be clear. No matter, NG has the better mould and I won't waste my precious cash on the dated GJ/JC 752 version.

Definitely, NG I think were working on it so it probably will be released in the coming months.
