Question

Gordon,

What's the info about this mould? Is it really a seamless GJ? Or is it Tucano's stuff?

I am looking forward to the Alaska 734 as I love Alaska Airlines ...

Judging from the pointy nose I would have to say that it is the Tucano-Line mould ... as are the other 763s (and the 154).


As for the 763s ... the real question is why?

G.

I really like these colours. Despite the pointy noise, I think I'll
still get this one!

Besides the nose, the color is questionable, again, wait and see the final product, hope it is correct as this was one of my most wanted liveries.

Do you think this mould is better than Gemini's first effort at a 763 mould?

Why is it so hard to make a good 767 mould? AC's is good, but everyone else has mediocre moulds. What's the deal?

The silver they used looks to dark to me. The photos I seen the new Aeroflot livery the silver is alittle a lighter color. I rather have a Big Bird, Dragon Wings, or Aeroclassic 767 model anyway.

Finally some very intersting releases from GJ. The Aeroflot B767 and the Alaska B737-400 are a must buy for me... GJ did improve their B767 mould, or is it just an optical illusion

I think your specs are misted up some.

That mould is baaad. Well, everything forward of the L1 and R1 doors is bad. The color is DEF. too dark, too.

Unhappy

Just a note,the additional 763's are along with new 319 and 320's going to replace the entire 777,310 and 735 fleet.It is most likely the 777 will never make it into the new c/s.

We did wish for Aero Classics but many it seems like Gordon already knew what Gemini was shoveling. I do hope the A320's will be nice in a Gemini mold.

Lightbulb So a Delta run was next to this.

Delta's dark blue is nearly the same as Aeroflot's new blue. Are they also not using Pantone books anymore. Really! Those blues are so near each other I would have used same blue on both for being so near each other.


If I were in their shoes that is what I would have done.
