In a collection of just under 200 planes,I only have about a half dozen 777's.I think this one will be next.

Not bad, not sure if I should get it though. I already have a Continental 777 in my collection. Although the one I have is a little older mould.

My only response to this one is....what a schitty photograph! Massive shadows and bigtime glare right through the titles. C'mon guys you can do better than that.

Haven't made my mind up about this release yet..... Would have liked to see a more creative 772 release to match the Vietnam 772.

Nice looking 777... A good addition to any Continental collection.

Not to worry... I will be reshooting her later today. By the time I was able to get my camera equipment set up and operating yesterday, it was 3:30pm, resulting in the (unavoidable) shadows and glare.

We did want to get the announcement out to you guys yesterday, though, so we decided to run with the photo you see above, and reshoot the model today in better light.

Is this a great month for us CALheads or what? I have the DW (Ship 001), but it's one of their early releases and has almost zero detail on the upper wings. The Airshop-DW Ship 014 (Peter Max for you non-CALheads) does have the proper details of later Dragon 777s.

The GJ is dead on. Better yet, it's Ship 006, named Robert F. Six honoring CAL's legendary President and CEO of over 40 years. This bird is one of the few acknowledgements by CO management that Continental even existed prior to 1982. Thanks GJ!

I like this one and I will probably add this one to my collection. It would look great next to the Peter Max CO 777. GJ's 777 mould kicks much a$s!!!

Yep. Read my earlier post.
