Default I hope Gemini uses Tucano MD80 mould

Now that Gemini is using Tucano's 736-300 mould, I hope they release MD80s using the old Tucano mould. Just think of all the cool MD80s we could have!

If I'm not mistaken the MD-80 mould originally belonged to GJ.
I would like to see an AA Chrome MD-80 with this mould. I would really like to see some TWA and Ozark done with this mould.

After seeing models like the Air Jamaica or AOM MD-80s by Tucano on pictures and in person, I really cannot understand what's that good arround that mould. It simply looks horrible to me - just take a look on engines, gears, aft fuse, v-stab...

Horrible?? Except for the engines, I didn't see any bad parts on that mould. The gears were even better than Dragon's!

Question

Instead of asking Gemini to use some old reject moulds, how about we all get together and ask Gemini to quit dicking with the collectors and return back to their high standards and quality moulds from before? What is with the Tucano leftovers? Ed and I happen to think we all deserve better. Even Gail and Evelle think so to, and I bet we could get Nathan Jr.'s daddy to agree as well.

What if you go back to Jet-X who has made a few?

Mr. Hansen, I don't think you made a whole heck of a lot of sense in that last posting of yours. Other than reading my posting all over again which is right before yours. What's your point?

I mean if not Gemini it would have to go to Jet-X since they do have a good record of MD-80's. Not like the bad record of Ted Striker!

Oh heck no, the more the merrier. If he likes Ozark then he's a good guy as far as I'm concerned.

If GJ just tweaked the engine pylons on their 747-100/200, they could sell a million. BA, TWA, HP, UAL o/c, CO n/c, NW red/gray, there's lots of famous well-known schemes for which DOZENS of planes flew in, not just a bunch of one-offs. Hey, how about a JAL oo/c 747-200? There were like 5,000 of those fyling around... Half of them were the airline's flagship/symbol. I mean, a BA Landor 747 *IS* BA for the 80's. Same with a twin-stripe TWA 747-100, or a UAL o/c 747. And there's still a lot of NW red/gray ones flying around that aren't -400's.

I think that these comments are going way overboard. Before anyone forgets, GJ was the one who commissioned the MD80 mould and "stolen" by Tucano before they were able to fix all the mistakes. Now let's assume that GJ has the MD80 mould back, all they have to do is to fix it to the standards they wanted for it in the first place and there you have it, a mould in GJ's standards.

Everyone here is quick to assume that GJ will just use 'these moulds the way they are without fixing these first. Unless GJ has done something like this in the past, I think it's advisable to calm down first and give them a chance to prove that they're not ****ing you before making that very claim.

I have every single GJ model ever produced and I will stop doing so should GJ's standards fall. But unless I have something in my hands to tell me so, I shall continue to maintain a complete GJ collection.

Hi Ben,

Hey that's great news man. I'll tell the guys that we should expect you sometime soon. BTW, where does you dad stay here in MNL? Let us know if he needs anything locally, will be glad to help members and relatives of members of DAC.
