Default new gemini cargolux 747-8F All cargo doors opened!

Just got this from flying mule. I knew it was going to be a special one so i ordered two!

Comes with all the doors and nose pieces for open and closed position!

This is definitely one of my favorite 1/400. Gemini has finally stepped up.

Now if they would start making 1/400 with removable gears. Not impossible at all considering what they did with the cargo doors.....I would not mind paying $10-20 more for removable gears

I imagine with enough precision you can even make flap up/down option pieces possible!

Is it only a matter of time, before Gemini offers these in 1:200 scale? I agree, they are cool.

Wow, that is very cool. Yes UPS would be awesome. 1:400s have come quite a way in detail.

They should do that to the C-5, an open nose.

I hope they do this for all their models eventually with outward opening doors. Next logical one would be the 77F

I really hope they do another Atlas one. They underestimated the market so the shops in my area only got a small handful with no restocks available

The only thing that worries me is all the small parts that come with these. They are really easy to lose.

Is the top correct now?
And hopefully they do a NCA to go with my NCA display package.

Yup! got the boxed set with accessories, but no plane. That model NCA 747 open door is rocking horse poo territory

I wish one of the manufacturers would also do open door models. Like the ANA 747 in Japan they released years ago with L1 and L2 open.

Or maybe a maintenance version with all the doors open, all engine doors open, and landing gears door open. I’d pay extra for that!

Is the 747-8(f) mould from gemini more accurate then the 747-400? I read a lot about 747-400 moulds but the 8 is not really clear to me, considering this cargolux so info would be appreciated

I'd be even happier if we'd see the new Cargolux Retro paint scheme applied to the 747-8F too and Gemini make an interactive series of that one too.
