I heard the rumor of the Delta CRJ a few months back. Now I chuckle at those $1000 bids. Great month for Gemini 1/400.

Jet2 Holidays 757. One perhaps NG should have done by now, given all the requests for it.

Looking at the variety of releases, this has got to be the best batch of releases in a year.

Definitely the Frontier A321 and Southwest retro gold 737 for me. Glad to see a 727-200... finally. I may wait on that one.

Darn, why did the Delta CRJ-900 have to be a SkyWest tail 😞 Should’ve been Endeavor so you don’t have to imagine SkyWest flying 250 knots everywhere and making the block time as long as possible.

From my perspective, this is the best set of releases from GJ in a very long time. It's a bumper month for me. I ordered AmeriJet, Delta, Frontier, Kalitta, Southwest and United.

The Kalitta charters is a classic?? A 1980's built 727 still flying. In fact, it's even more of classic now than it was when it was first built flying people around.

Why do they do that? So the crew gets more pay?
Lower cost index?

Checked the database. The last one of those was released in 2008. I’d assume that they’d still have the moulds but would now be inactive, as all the subjects have been done, unless we get re-releases. Somehow I don’t think this is very likely though? Aeroclassics also put out further releases on their own 1E/2E mould later on in 2017, covering the odd gap that Gemini missed.

I was so glad to be able to get both the gemini 1E and 2B trident on ebay last month. The 1/500 trident is also a very rare bird as there are only 2: inflight which is based on netmodel and netmodel so there is really only 1 mould and total of 4 different models...

I’ve heard both excuses used. They beef up their pay checks and claim it’s less wear and tear on the air frame all while making flights unnecessarily long. Meanwhile ATC regularly has to ask them to say their current speed as they gum up departures and arrivals by flying slower than everyone else. Please don’t get me wrong, I know many great pilots who work there. I just don’t like the way they operate, or riding on them taking 20-40 minutes longer than it should.

Gemini Jets going after those Stimulus $$$. :P All kidding aside, a very nice group this month. The SW, the Delta CRJ, the United CRJ and the Kalita for me! Now here's to hoping the QC is spot on!

Guess it serves the airlines in the US right for paying their pilots for the block time rather than the sign in time!
The most crucial work by the pilots is done before pushback!! Crazy to think they aren't being paid, (aswell as the rest of the crew) during this time...
Crazy...

I spent way too much on pre-orders with the GJ releases, and still have to stash some away for the Aeroclassics for April too... good problems to have.

Thanks very much for the info. I appreciate that. I have been collecting some of the tridents on ebay recently including BA, Northeast and a few others, so wondered if they were still in production. Much appreciated. Did they ever model G-AVFG in BA landor livery? Would love that as I've got G-AWZK.

Interesting info there. I will have to keep a lookout for the 1/500 versions too, I bet they don't come up very often. Do you know which liveries were produced in 1/500?


Would be nice if Gemini jets re-released the Trident with different registrations.

I’ve been a pilot for Endeavor Air now for several years, and do agree it’s still frustrating how we are not paid for all the prep work, or for all that time sitting between flights or when flights are delayed (unless we’ve already left the gate).

SkyWest though is a stand out with this flying slow issue though. I’m not certain how their pay is structured other than knowing their hourly pay is subpar to many regional airlines and they have no union. At Endeavor we are paid based on the average historic block time of that flight unless we exceed it (and even then we might not get paid extra depending on the day credit or trip credit, but too long to explain here).

Separately, I had read about a law suit in California by Virgin America flight attendants suing over not being paid for the industry standard 45 minute show time before flight, yet being required to be there by their employer. They actually won the case and millions in back pay, but it seems long term it’s a moot point because they merged with Alaska, and Alaska’s operations are not substantially located in the state of California like Virgin’s were.

Trying to stay on topic I ordered the Kalitta 727 and DL/SKW 900 (bc it’ll probably be gone for a decade again).

Very welcome. I have that Northeast too plus a fleet of the Negus British/British Airways examples, many found at bargain prices at past model fairs. The Landor version was indeed made (don’t have this one), it looks like the last release they did back in 2008:

https://database.diecastmodelaircraft.com/model/19598

Hopefully you’ll find this one at a decent price eventually!

Thanks mate. I have G-AWZK in landor livery, but there was another Trident that made it in to landor too, G-AVFG, I was wondering if that was ever modelled in 1/400 at all?


I have some of the BA Negus Tridents too, and a BKS British Air Services one too.

I have the G-AWZK model in that list too actually, I didn't know who made it when I purchased it, so I've got ZK in both 1/400 and 1/500.
Just wondering if there is any models of G-AVFG in landor too now.

Trident 2, G-AVFG in Landor has not been made yet. It and Trident 3, G-AWZK were the only Tridents repainted into Landor, but only used as ground based tug and cabin crew apparatus.

I have the G-AWZK model in that list too actually, I didn't know who made it when I purchased it, so I've got ZK in both 1/400 and 1/500.
Just wondering if there is any models of G-AVFG in landor too now.
Welcome mate. Looks as though those BEA ones have gotten harder to get in recent years. When the model fairs start up again, it might be worth giving one of them a go as you'll more than likely find one there!

Yes that's the one I forgot! Shame neither flew in that livery. It suited them very well.

barison82,
I will keep my eye on collectors fairs in the future and see if I can get hold of anything.


Yeah it is a shame that they never flew in landor livery. I remember them both being used as trainers and saw them when I was growing up. Then Neil Lomax got involved with ZK and looked after her really well. I don't think he's involved with ZK anymore sadly. I think FG was the one that ended up as the fire trainer at Trident Turn by 09L.

Oh, so a bit like the solitary BOAC Comet surviving (as a non flying apprentice trainer) to be painted in the BOAC 'golden speedbird' colours and later even, IIRC, making it to a BA Negus repaint?

Hopefully we might see the LGW/LHR fairs happen toward the end of this year, all going well of course...Neil did an incredible job with saving ZK, an absolute legend. I believe she used to live in one of the now demolished TBE Hangar Blocks, 6-10. Yes, FG was at 09L until it was removed in March 2000.

Neil was made redundant from MAN AVP several years ago and all the good work that got done is now coming undone as 'ZK' has been basically left to rot and looking a bit sorry for itself.

Last I spoke with Neil, he was working at MAN on the Thomas Cook A330 deconstruction last year. He's since had a bit of a minor heart attack, but doing ok as far as I know. Really good bloke to know, if you cut him open, it says Trident all the way through.

Incidentally his own Gemini Jets Trident collection got put on display within Trident 1, G-ARPO at NEAM museum in Sunderland. Another restoration, he played a major part in.

Yeah that pretty much sums it up.

I hope so!
Yeah Neil did do a great job on ZK. Such a shame that things didn't go so well after the move to Manchester and he was treated so poorly. I have him on Facebook actually and always enjoy his posts and info about the trident.

Are you part of the Heathrow Classic movements group on Facebook? It's amazing for photos that I'm sure will help you with building your model LHR. They had a header recently of both ZK and FG together in landor.
I remember them removing FG from trident turn, such a shame really, but the big green machine replaced it over near the Virgin hangar.



ty-144,
Yeah that Comet made it in to the Negus livery. I assume (although could be wrong) that was the one that ended up on the fire dump at what was known as 'Comet corner' and then replaced by G-AVFG making it 'Trident Turn'

A pair for Aeroclassics, perhaps?


I'd very much like to see GJ or someone do the Landor Trident 2. I've got the 3C and it looks very classy, flyer or no!

Wow, interesting stuff about Neil, I’ve never met him but know of him and his dedication to saving the Trident types for preservation. He must be an absolute fountain of knowledge; hope he also stays in good health. What a shame about ZK! So sad and frustrating after all the work that went into bringing her back. A common problem sadly, as this is encountered in rail preservation too, where certain preserved examples are left outside with no shelter available to store them safely, and they go to rack and ruin. All this costs money and there is never enough of it, and some types get favoured more than others.

Pretty cool about his collection being put on public display like that, fittingly inside the real deal. Yes, G-ARPO, the sole -1C type in existence. Will be good to get up there and see her one of these days. This pandemic has hit museums & preservation projects pretty hard.

I hope so too - there is an indication that the LGW fair will be on 12th September this year, so we’ll just have to wait and see. Shame about what happened with Neil and ZK. So many of these preservation projects run into trouble with people falling out. I’ve heard it happening so many times in train and bus preservation projects too, and it’s such a shame.

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!

I agree to disagree. New regional jets, especially US ones, have been long, LONG overdue anyway, so might as well get it out of the way now. We may not ever see that Delta CRJ-900 again, so enjoy it while it lasts!

IMO we’re still missing a few regionals, but this’ll keep us satisfied for a while. Hoping for more regional jets in 2021!

there is one important missing one: ERJ-145XR united express.

It's the only ERJ-145 with winglets. There has never been any ERJ-145 released in any scale with winglets. But i guess no one will ever do a one livery model ;( except herpa and AN-225. well, even an-225 was avail in pre and post soviet livery....
