I imagine if they do another Delta CRJ9, it would likely be a Skywest registered one (SK suffix), or another Endeavor with an EV or XJ suffix. Nevertheless I don’t mind the registration; I just need the aircraft type/airline livery combo to be released again. It’s gonna take a miracle for them to make those US regional jets before years end.

Mesa-operated CRJ9's have flown to Yuma before, so that would be acceptable.

BA & LH for me this month.

Would love to see an Delta/Endeavor CRJ900. Strangely enough, GJ released TWO Delta CRJ700s (ExpressJet aircraft) since the regional jet moulds returned. For some reason we've seen only a few CRJ900s total over the past decade.

The Endeavor fleet is interesting since a LOT of the aircraft were not originally delivered to Endeavor. The EV suffix is actually a bit of an anomaly in the Endeavor fleet and there are only a few 900s with that. EV is (now was) the IATA designator for ExpressJet, and those aircraft were originally delivered to Atlantic Southeast, which was acquired by ExpressJet. The XJ aircraft were originally delivered to Mesaba. New deliveries to Endeavor have PQ or PX suffixes.

Thanks for the clarification on the reg suffixes. There’s so many in their regional fleet, it’s hard to count them all!

Here's my opinion on the releases:

1) 7 heavies and 2 narrows? Come on Gemini, make more narrowbodies please! Quite literally, ever since this spring, all we got with AA narrowbody is American A320, not to mention that it was a failure. On the other hand, we got 763, 788, 772, AND now 789. Come on, we don't need that many heavies...

2) El Al color seem to be controversial. Here's my opinion: It looks way off, but since it's just the CGI image, let's not overcriticize it. However I do want to mention that some people are biased and defend a specific manufacturer over a similar problem. For example, some criticize a company in particular on a SAME type of issue where all companies suffer with; such as color, mould, or even lighting on their pictures. Let's not do that.

3) For me personally, I didn't really get interested in any of them besides the UPS 748F interactive which I might get it, not sure though.

Edit:
American CRJ900!
Although the mould does not exist anymore as far as I know, I would love to see the CRJ900s being released. American Eagle N904FJ(Mesa) is my preferred reg as it flies to the airport I make, and also I saw that plane irl!

NG, I would love to see:

I’m a first officer on the CRJ-200 for Endeavor, and yes its fascinating to see all the variations even in that fleet. Some planes have a flaps 8 and 20 position while others have only flaps 20. Ex-ExpressJet birds arrived missing a ton of paint (and were maintenance hogs for quite some time!), have old style standby instruments and are the only 200s with printers in the cockpit as well as a small storage locker for a suitcase. The galley configurations vary too and some planes don't have the automatic announcement system, so the flight attendant has to say the safety brief, then pause to demonstrate, and then continue.

Yes, I wholly endorse a Delta/Endeavor 200 and 900 being produced. It’s odd none have been released in so long. I asked Gemini years ago (and SkyMarks), but they ignored me. Thankfully NG listened and produced a beautiful rendition in 1:200 that sold like hot cakes to pilots. My family bought 4 of those alone!

They could've incorporated the light blue as a shadow to the bold font which could've made it less boring!! It's a nice scheme,don't get me wrong but do agree that the previous United's were so much more appealing!!

I'd love to see a battleship retro livery. They had a few E-120's flying around in that livery up until they retired them. I remember when their battleship 744's flew over my house extremely heavy. Good days.

I completely agree, we have more than enough wide-bodies out there. I've limited myself in the scope of my collection (trying to keep it at a reasonable size), and I have pretty much all that I need in the way of wide bodies other than a couple more L-1011s.
I really wish that SOMEONE..(Aeroclassics, Gemini) would release a Continental 737-300 in the final color scheme...and a Northwest A319 in the final scheme. Those are 2 off the top of my head that I would really like to see.

The EL-AL color are only controversial because you and others, whom have not even seen the model, are making it controversial. That's because another company made the model with incorrect colors, but those who follow them blindly like the Pied Piper can not accept the fact that they made an error. Here's a wake up call guys, those guys do not walk on water, and are prone to errors just like all the rest of us are. Get over it!
GJ has been around a lot longer, and brought more to this hobby than some of these passing fads! Some of you have very short and selective memories!

Those two models would be nice to see. I have a Gemini NWA A320 final livery and I think an A319 would look awesome to go with it.

Yes, The A319 would be awesome. I have that Gemini A320 also. Herpa's the only one that has done an A319 in NWA final scheme... no thanks, would rather have Aeroclassics or Gemini.

It's true according to the DIMA databse.. only Herpa has made one in 2005. No thank you, I would much rather have an Aeroclassics or Gemini release.

The McChord C-17 looks great, but still disappointed that GJ decided to do away with the jeweled red light on the top of the vertical stabilizer and go back to the original printed red spot. I'm guessing some MBA student did a "deep analysis" and suggested GJ could save thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours in manufacturing costs and time if they took that tiny part and manufacturing step out of the process.

Compared to a photo of the real deal, the antennas don't look out of scale to me. What am I missing here?

Harvey
Top one looks the most accurate. Middle one, the antennae look odd and the bottom one, no aerials ( I'll take a wild guess who that might be!) and landing gear just look...meh, compared to other two!

Yeah that's a typical GJ trait!! Introduce something that looks good then never ever consistent with it!!

On the brightside the P08 posidon looks quite good, I'll definitely be picking that one up at some point. Just waiting on the US Navy one to arrive from Hong Kong 🙂 🙂

Compare that to the United Express example I have that they did in 2017. Unsure if this is the correct nose and main gear height either but looks better in my eyes.

It looks like the nose gear is mounted deeper in the fuselage on the United bird.
Perhaps it is a simple fix?
