Default Gemini's Small Gems

Gemini Jets executes these small commuters flawlessly. These two pictured at Denver are:

1. GJUAL1153 Bombardier Dash 8-200 United Express N365PH; and
2. GJAAL 1253 United Express ERJ-170 N637RW.

Right colors, arrived fully assembled, and highly accurate renditions, especially considering their very small size. Keep 'em flying, Doug

They are true gems. Did GJ release a QANTAS Dash8 in 1/400? Or was that my imagination?

That's one thing I like about Gemini...they almost always get the colors right..I've never had any concern about colors with them.

They did but unfortunately, for me at least, it was in the modern colours. I'd have loved one from the 90s.

Gemini has access to quite a few great regional moulds that I would like to see more of like the DHC-8, ATR-42/72, F50 and Saab 340.

This is very true. No matter what else can be said about Gemini, their colour reproduction has almost always been faithful and accurate, so kudos to them for that!

Yes me too. When I was down in that part of the world for a few years in the 90's & 00's I flew a number of Canberra-Sydney sectors on the QANTAS subsidiary Eastern Australia Boeing(!?!) Dash-8-100s. I'd love to get one of these at some point.

Agree completely. Also more CV-580 action would be appreciated!

Because these are under the QantasLink name.
