WOW! I thought the America West 757 Ohio was striking, but I believe this surpasses it. A sure future Gemini release, in both scales. Instant sellout.

Damn it Southwest, I thought you were supposed to be basing your 1/1 model off of actual Gemini Jets blueprints

Looks like both Gemini Jets and NG will release them, will be an exciting! Both will sell out almost immediately, in fact I have people asking me to reserve this model that hasn't even been announced yet!

NG are very fast at making models, and retailers get them usually within 2-3 days after NG finishes due to the fastest worldwide shipping used. The United 737-700 New Colors and the Alaska 737-900ER "One World" are two examples that NG has gotten models to market within 2-3 months of the livery being out. In fact, work has already begun at NG to make this SWA, and I'm sure the Gemini is also in planning as well.

As long as AC isn’t, they’d manage to mess up the US flag colors somehow

Can’t wait to have to either miss out or buy one on eBay for double the price from a reseller.

Awesome! Right when I got the email from Diecast Airplane Store I snagged that thing like a fish hook VS. a log. Nice looking plane I have to say. If I have the money, I will get every single different release from each retailer just because Southwest is the best airline ever (change my mind)

The SW still in stock - how many will they make? Or will they cancel the later orders?

Nothing is in stock, they're just taking preorders.


NG varies their runs based on demand.

Thanks.
So if people were to order right now and there's none left when the time comes, they'll get canceled?


Yeah, I know its preorder

Pre-ordered the NG version, feels too soon, but I don't want to miss it and see it on EvilBay x3 times it's price.

They will make as many as they can, then they will reproduce it afterward. NG has no problem with unlimited productions of models, and there is a list of around 15 or so models made year that they will reproduce. Only problem is factory space shortage, which should be solved as they are moving into their new facility.

In theory no, but in reality yes, in fact I've noticed that NG are one of the fastest appreciating models out there. Look at the Southwest 737-800's going for $200+ and it hasn't even been a year. They are very desired.

Good thing I grabbed it the first time it came out, then
