Atlas Air for me, I take it this is based in the new JC Wings 744 tooling ?

Might get the Atlas, it would be the old mould as it's a pure freight dog, while the new 744 mould is for the PAX version.

If it's interactive it needs to be a new mould, it says **NEW MOULD**! in the listing.

It’s not the old mould - the old mould isn’t interactive.

They must have expended their old stocks of the old castings, releases on the JC 777s, A350s, and the new 744F mould.

A350 and Southern 777, both flaps down, for me, along with the SWA Max and Atlas

I may get the 2 Alaskas, since I missed the ones from NG.

I'm sure you could still find the two NG Alaskas from Various retailers that have them in stock. Sure the price for NG may be a little higher than Gemini but the mould is light years ahead.

Nothing of interest for me this month. It's just as well. Once the NG pictures come in and I can examine them, I may have an expensive month with them.

Hoping to see more terrific classics from Gemini from the MD-80 or other moulds soon! The New York Air MD-80 proudly adorns my Rochester section.

There are so many MD-80's they could do: AirCal, CO last scheme, DL "interim" and "wavy gravy" schemes, FL Saul Bass, HA, Midway, Midwest, NW both schemes, PSA, OZ, RC both schemes, TW both schemes, and US both schemes....and that just airlines in the US...(I probably missed some)

That's a pretty meagre release (especially compared to last month's Aeroclassics style release). Nothing of interest this time around. Would like to see the MD-80 and IL-62 mould put back into use....

Some decent stuff. A few options to consider but I haven’t ordered anything yet. All things said NG has done some of these releases already, notably the Alaskas, but I like to say the Gemini’s are there to provide collectors another option if they prefer Gemini’s release or missed out on NG’s release.

Diverse set indeed! SWA 737 Max 8, Turkish 787-9, and maybe the UPS 757 for me. Hopefully, GeminiJets will keep the good efforts coming!

I would rather support GJ and their network of dealers, than the bottomfeeders anytime!! I got 7 new GJ releases last month, and looking at 8 this month, including 3 1/200 scale models!

I think most have figured this out by now but the releases are still under a delay due to the clogged up ports in California. Waiting for more information to come out from Gemini’s social media pages. So far I’ve seen the story post below and another post from the 11th.
