And it confirms that they've got a mold for the 752WL with Pratt & Whitney engines. Bring on the United bird!

Reg looks like N538US, instead of N528US in the data sheet

It has been said here that the recently released NWA CRJ-900's fuselage color is wrong, so I'll wait until photos of the production model are posted before I buy! This sample pic looks great, but so did last month's and it was screwed up.

This looks like a crappy Schabak IMHO. Look at the window placement, reg font and landing gear. Basic stuff. This isn't 1999. It's a joke that they ask for $25 for this...compare the quality to any of the newer moulds. This 757 needs to be completely re-tooled!

Kinda funny--GJ's done 3 molds of the fuselage alone, and I still think the original looks best (like the Eastern release). Sure it had the infamous seam, but it just plain looked more like a 757.

Gemini used a picture for their color matching from more of a sundown time so it looks slightly more gold then average every day ops.

I really like the winglets on the 757.

I give my left nut to see one done for Finnair, with NO Moomins or Santa Clauses on them...

Didn't your Mommy "pottie-train" you. Hope that you didn't leave any "highway tracks" in your undies! Just a little humor here, no offense taken I hope.
