Default Question to GJ

Are you able to re-release all 1/400 777 on the JCW mould. If you like ot or not: the engines of the JC derivative look more accurate. You have the mould sharing agreement, why not share THESE moulds?

Alternatively, I'm told that NG has the 777 in the pipeline. Might be good to wait for something that will likely be superior to both?

Who told you that? I seriously doubt that the JC Wings 777 can be beaten and the AV400 mould is a great mould too. NG don't need to do everything

Couldn’t agree more. In my opinion, NG has better mould options than the 777...

Agreed, but a 747-100/200/300, followed by MD-80 and 727-200 they need to do.
Oh, and a 707-120. Ah, well...

NG should should focus on better quality control, before trying to be everything for everyone.

Compared to other manufacturers NG accepts responsibilty and makes up for their mistakes.

To be fair NG awnsers practically everything by vaguely saying that they're looking into it. I find it a bit silly that so many people take this mere hearsay seriously.

If anything, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND that Gemini focus on their 767-300 mould ( even look into doing the 200 version too) because they have an excellent mould and should concentrate more on moulds that are under represented and not done by all the other manufacturers! Also do something they're unique in. And this is another suggestion to go with the seven six mould, DO MORE CARGO CARRIERS PLEASE!!!!!.

Florida West (new silver body scheme)
TMA Cargo
Amerijet (762)
Star Air (762)
And DEFINITELY an ABSA Cargo.

PS: Crownvic see if you can 'spread the good word' with our Gemini friends!!

Quite agree. 737-500 first comes to my mind.

I’ll follow your requests with mine: new regional jets!!! I know a few collectors that would love to see this come true; I’m just spearheading this operation.

- American Eagle CRJ-700. I imagine there’s many collectors that want regional jets; I know dang well this isn’t the first time this has been requested for a re-release.
- Delta CRJ-900. Unconfirmed sources tell me Gemini does not have the mold anymore, but if you still did, this would be the PERFECT model to do. One sold on eBay for... get this... $1,000! I could buy a new iPhone for that price!! There’s obviously enough demand that Gemini should do another release. An American Eagle release is my number one request just because no one’s done it yet in 1:400.
- Delta ERJ-175. I know the E170 has been done before (I have one) but one with the newer winglets (the slanted ones) hasn’t been made yet.

You can simply call this Operation New Regionals. I don’t have a catchier name for it so this is what I came up with. The only goal we have is to get Gemini Jets to release a new batch of 1:400 RJs that have bene long sold out everywhere and are in pretty high demand.

I definitely want to see more 737-500's (United Saul Bass and battleship gray come immediately to mind)..and a few more 737-400's (like Piedmont and US Airways 1997 scheme) if the mould is still useable.

...or maybe let NG jump on the 777 train aswell, not only for having a superior product from them, but also to push manufacturers to release more of their 777s and improve their product (hint for GJ).

A regular release on a superb mould would be awesome.
I'd like to see -200ER with GE 90's.

Nothing fancy.
