First time that I’ve preordered four from a single release, doubling my record from the NG April 2020 releases.

I was going to pass on the Southwest 737 because even though it’s a beautiful livery it didn’t fit my criteria. Literally the very next day after the new releases were announced, I found myself fueling N714CB for a flight to Houston and putting in my preorder as soon as I was done.

So I was just taking my daily stroll along eBay, and stumbled upon a Delta CRJ-900 preorder that costs a whopping $140! If my math is correct, that is an unbelievable 407% markup, based off the lowest retail price I saw ($34.36).

Anyone know if they’ve fixed the oversized engines on the Frontier A321? I would’ve ordered it but after seeing the photos of the Northwest A320 that I also really wanted from a few months ago, I couldn’t do it. Looks absurd. I don’t display my Delta A321 any more for the same reason.

I doubt they’ve fixed either A) the oversized engines, or B) the glue issues, as many A320 family aircraft have been known to arrive with detached wings most likely because an insufficient amount of glue, or none at all is applied at the factory. We’ll see how it turns out upon the arrival of the models at the shop.

I would hope that they have. Those things were gigantic...way out of proportion..and they've had plenty of time to fix it. I guess we'll find out when they get here.

Seeing as GJ can't make a 737-700 to save their life, I'm going to pass on this one.

I have a Gemini Southwest 737-500 that sits exactly like that. I also have the older Gemini Southwest Illinois One and it doesn't have that issue.... glad I stuck with my old one after seeing this....maybe it needs those huge engines off the airbuses to help that center of gravity issue...

Is there any reason why GJ has the models made in China, and shipped to LV before being distributed to other countries? Wouldn't it be more cost effective to ship them directly to the dealers in Australia ect and open a headquaters in China?

far as I know they never did the China United one and as hugely popular as the tridents are in China I'd expect that would certainly be saleable

18 years? More like 13. The Landor version was one of the last releases, made in 2008. I know time is passing by quickly, but not that quickly thankfully!

Did they not have a Trident 1 as well? Somewhere I have a Channel Airways Trident in the 'golden jet' colours and I'm pretty sure it is shorter than the Trident 2 and 3 models I have.

I understand that they have other priories but let's be honest them not doing it is due to lack of interest and not any lack of saleable material

I assume it means that some shipments from China go to other distributors and not straight to ADI in LV. I sort of assumed this based on the fact that some models seem to make it out faster than the LV distributors get them.

Just wondered if they still produced them or planned to ever update the mould as such.

Yes I’m in that FB group - joined last year on your recommendation 👍 It is a fantastic resource, cheers, and my LHR project is still ongoing by the way...I’m acutely aware of the radio silence in my thread but I decided to start again with the project and have a way to go as a result - but the work is now 1000% times better than before. I should post a progress update there actually, I’ve been meaning too for a while but have been deliberately holding off until I had something more solid to share with the community!

Sincerest apologies for not responding sooner. Just seen your reply.
Indeed it is a shame what has happened really. It's always nice to see aircraft preserved but it's the continuous upkeep that becomes the issue. ZK was Manchester airports fault and not Neil's otherwise ZK would still look like she had just rolled off the production line.


I'm glad that the Heathrow classic movements group is useful to you! I didn't realise you had joined but I'm so glad you did. I'm looking forward to seeing the progress of your model Heathrow.

This is exactly the case. Can't vouch for Australia specifically but certainly most Asian countries get direct shipments from China.

Of course, you can buy Gemini from whoever you want, as a certain NA seller repeatedly makes clear.

Cheers mate and no worries at all 👍 Yes exactly, ongoing preservation of anything, let alone a Trident, is a huge drain on cash. So sad that ZK fell from grace, all that work to bring her back now lost.

Yes that’s a brilliant group, loads of amazing photos being shared of LHR back in the day. I will be updating progress on that project soon 👍

Better let this thread get back to topic!

Was shared these pics from Gemini’s instagram. Looks like the models are coming soon!

Edit: thumbnails don’t show for some reason. Also noticed an oddity with the Southwest box, though hard to tell because of lighting.

Just saw the model pics, and my goodness, Gemini needs to get their lighting and color situations figured out. Won’t provide pics myself to prevent conflicts.

Rumors are swirling that Gemini won't be able to meet the demand for the Delta CRJ-900. Does anyone have any further information on this?

Stretton posted something on the Yesterday’s Airlines Facebook page that one retailer who ordered about 300 of them got shafted to just 6 pcs. It’s very likely other retailers will be reporting similar numbers.

Edit: I also suspect Gemini didn’t make enough of them or are hogging them for no apparent reason.

Stretton! Hey it's like being back at school when everyone calls you by your last name

I get the feeling these models were made ages ago and have just been sitting around in the warehouse. I suspect they just underestimated demand as it's only become apparent relatively recently how demand is so high for them. I still don't really understand why it is so high tbh

The only reason why demand is so high, from my understanding, is because of many younger collectors out there who build model airports, and do YouTube videos of them (myself included), and this Delta CRJ-900 appears to be at just about every commercially-served airport in the US. As many of these younger collectors don’t have them (myself too) they’ve demanded Gemini for another release, and also because of the ridiculously high eBay resale prices they went for recently. Your average kid isn’t gonna have up to $1600 lying around for an airplane model

Gotcha. The prices have been insane. It's only a bog average model after all. I guess the Youtubers that GJ hates so much have helped up the demand for this one too.

I think most collectors rarely spend more than $100 on any model - I know I've barely ever paid more than $100 NZD - maybe once or twice out of two thousand models.

Kids are gonna be devastated. also the every commercial airport bit is not true but whatever. this could be worse than the spirit fiasco. Were all thinking. "Can't wait for my CRJ to get here". then it don't come. Youtubers are gonna still support gemini after this because if they don't then who gonna watch. I mean they alone bought at least 10 apiece. there airports will be a bit upset though. Its gonna be a nightmare. just you wait. i was lucky to know my retailer well and be the first to order one. we will just have to wait and see. I canceled my SWA for the NG one. the SWA looks poor. the color looks like nail polish. so more nail polish SWAs but not enough CRJs? Honestly, I think they should be held accountable. Hopefully these other companies get their own moulds. release enough for everyone!

I got the original Delta CRJ-900 release for "only" $95 recently. Don't know if I overpaid or got a steal. But in either case, absolutely no way that model is worth anything more than $200 even to the most ridiculous nutter out there

I know that there are many on here who are a bit perplexed by the prices being paid for this little model. But I don't think it's that farfetched. Gemini has only ever used the mould about 13 times since 2008. The last time they used it (or released a model based on that mould) was 2017! (with a current Air Canada scheme). That means that if Gemini only use the mould once every few years, there isn't much of a chance for rerelease.

I think that there is certainly market manipulation happening. One of these went for a bunch of money on eBay one day and everyone has assumed their worth to be greater, thus it has everyone taking special note when one is available. This activates more impulsive and panicked purchasing. But to be real, it is a very common sighting at many U.S. airports, and many people no doubt collect Delta, so this would probably be one of those pesky elusive models for fleet builders. Perhaps it really is quite a valuable model. Not for the sake of the qualities of the 1/1 version, but for the simple fact that supply really hasn't met demand. Clearly it continues to be an issue!

Richard, I bet if you took it from the perspective of making a wishlist as you've done for several other under utilized moulds. You'd find that there is quite a bit of potential for the CRJ-900 mould. A good handful of airlines with nice looking modern schemes could probably be great sellers for Gemini. For example Adria, Estonia Air, Iraqi Airways, Libyan Airways, PLUNA (I find this scheme to be gorgeous, and it could be made multiple times as it's presented in various color patterns) Uganda Air, and a handful of others. I suspect they don't get made because many people who would buy them fall outside of Gemini's direct distribution/profit network, so even though they'd be good global sellers, Gemini won't take the chance of them being stinkers in the U.S. market.

All the best guys...
