Wow. That Northwest was completely unexpected. I own several of the AC release from many years ago, but I'll be excited to see the actual photos of the GJ version. Might be an expensive month.

I guess when you want something Delta, you just can't get it. Hoping for a Delta A359 on the improved tooling.

NWA Bowling Shoe would normally get me excited, but my AeroClassics version of the A320 is perfect.

Hope GJ would surprise us by cranking out some more CRJ-900s and 737-500s....

Just ordered this one, the AA 767 and the Cargolux.

Is gemini ever going to fix those A320 engines? Enormous.

Gemini should go back and use this mold, the engines look the correct size.

It was a better mould but people complained about the cradle mount - sigh

Unlike Aeroclassics, Gemini got the bowling shoe colors right--lighter, brighter. Too bad the oversized engines make it look like the NEO existed in the 90's. Still undecided.

Have to agree the AeroClassics releases recently were excessively dark red. But not a deal breaker. The GJ A320 is a deal breaker for me though. Even if the engine size was right, there are increasingly much better A320s out there now. The only Airbus released by GJ that I have is a LH A380. Hopefully a Delta A350-900 on the new tooling will join my collection soon.

The red looks too bright on the NWA Airbus the engines look oversized, hopefully this is pre-production error.

Does anyone know if Gemini use their own mould for the 350 or do they share it with another model manufacturer?

the engines looking big has been an issue since this mould came out. They think the intakes for CEO is as big as NEO

I’m pretty sure it’s the same as JC wings mould which is arguably second best to Aviation400.

As for the A320 engines it baffles me that they can double in size from the old mould without being corrected.

Would’ve bought the Northwest A320 as well if not for the excessive engine size. As someone around these planes in DTW since I was a kid, it’s impossible for me to look past.

Luckily I don't collect any 320's, but even then I have to say the engines on the Northwest look like NEO's!!! How can no one at Geminijets production/quality control not have spotted this??? Beggars belief! It hits you like a smack in the face!!
