I'll chime in just to be different. DON'T buy it. It's a fake fantasy plane that'll never exist.

Like (almost) everybody said, buy it if you like it.
GJ makes a very nice A380 model, and even if FedEx doesn't take the airplane right now, well I think that makes the model even more worthwhile!

Unlike my counterpart, who is always different, the model may currently be a "fantasy plane," but I believe one day there will be an A380F, and I think that FX will operate it, in time.

What exactly is the purpose of this post??

Do you need other's permission to buy a model?
If you like it, buy it!
If you don't like it, don't buy it!

I only collect A380's in 1/500 scale, so I didn't buy it, but it is still a nice model!

Why so harsh, you two? If the guy has brought it up 3 times and got no response, he probably is looking for some input before he shells out hard-earned dough. There has been more than one time when I wish I had the benefit of a heads-up before I laid out the cash.

I agree Don and I'm not being harsh just pointing out that irregardless of hundreds or four responses, he will still have to look at the thing and make the final decision.

First, I must agree with Yukon 880, and the harshness of a couple members' replies. I believe the question was asked in hopes of responses, either positive or negative, as to the quality, etc., of the model itself... NOT whether he was asking others' permission to spend his money. It amazes me the number of members this site has, and yet, almost every new topic and thread is written by the same old members... over and over again.

Give the guy a break... afterall, what's wrong with being polite? There are those, QFA, who may find your rude response funny... then others, like myself, that find your smart-as*s reply unnecessary.

There is a funny side to this thread - it should not be taken too seriously and we need to laugh sometimes.
Buying a FedEx A380 is not that hard- and the original post was innocent enough but expect both sides of the coin when you post on the internet...I've been flamed and laughed at many times but its all fun.

The guy asked if he should buy a GJ fedex and you guys all come down harsh , if you like it buy it , if you like it buy it, do you have to ask to go pee pee , uncalled for guys ,
What response would i get if i asked should i buy the magic jade cargo 747 , bet there wouldnt be so much go buy it calls , the guy works hard for his money , sometimes DAC is a laugh and other times there are uncalled for posts probably the reason why fazeman now has a new job here

Then Gents my response is simple.

Having been publicly abused and ridiculed here by the former moderator and p!ss takes appear to be tabooed now, then I just won't bother.

I suggest that you all may wish to revisit our threads and posts. There aren't too many Mother Theresa's amongst us.

There arent too many mother thereas amongst us we have all tried to have a laugh and your not a bad guy qantas or the moderator would have banned you , it was a fuuny post but probably not for jaffa who only has 49 posts , either because he is new here or for some reason hasnt got involved much before, the guys qustions should be answered with some positive answers, nice colours. fantasy model now , only fedex a380 out there etc etc would have been more help to the guy ..
Saying that qantas hope you still choose to stick around and contribute here , not the crime of the century

I vote no. I dont normally buy cargo subjects but the one exception is the OLD COLORS FedEx DC-10. New colors FDX on a 380 doesnt make a whole lotta sense to me.

OTOH, worthy 380s would be Etihad, Singapore, Korean, Qatar or Thai.

I am still waiting for a Playboy all black A380. Could you imagine the amount of debauchery that could occur in an A380?

Wow, a double-decker orgy! How are the pilots supposed to focus on the flight controls or will it be autopilot all the way? I like the way you think Nick.

Nice responses gents!
Though Nick's proposition seems dubious, at best. Still, anything less just wouldn't be our "Slick Nick!"

Thanks to Carlos for posting the pic, as a reminder of just what a sweet-looking model this really is. I don't have a copy yet, but one will surely be on the way to Yukon International, at some point!

Me too, just last month I would have loved to have had some input prior to getting my latest Northwest Cargo 747 Silver Turd from AC. What an error-fest that was, had I known about all its flaws, I would not have spent the money on it.

Yes, I am too of the "buy what you like" philosphy, but I do not see any harm in asking some of us for pointers on a model that for someone is a "maybe". This release is a nice model, and if you collect freighters or FedEx I would say yes, thought it currently is a fantasy model, we might still see one of these whales in FX colors one day in the distant future. Just like the GJ FedEx 777F, very nice release but also a Fantasy model (until 2009 I think, when we start taking deliveries of the T7s).

Question Re: Should I buy the Gemini jets Fedex a380 Frieght

I'm not sure about the UPS order: did they cancel the A380 or not?

I think that there are several fantasy schemes out there that could turn out to be a nice addition to your collection. If nothing else, you could have a good conversation-piece. I remember a long time ago the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy came out in a 1/144 scale model with decals for either the USAF or an airliner variant! Imagine a C-5 based airliner!

I'll agree with you...

I believe Lockheed had initially discussed the L-500 as the commercial version of the Galaxy. Now, if Dragon were to whip-up a nice "fanjet" Widget version of the L-500, I'd be all over it!

There's a market for fantasy models. It's probably not anywhere near the size of the market for mainstream diecast, but it is there.

A "FanJet" Delta widget scheme for the C 5 would be the logical conclusion to the marketing phrase, "Fly Delta's Big Jets"!

I was kinda thinking the same.
One thing's for sure, the delivery flight from Marietta would have been one of the shortest in history!

I second the above, he's probably just lookin for a little friendly advise. Not some "smart-as*s" remark. So back off!! Get the drift!!

Please take note: I did not chime in with one of my unfunny, smart-arse remarks.
But,
In defense of QFA, this Jaffa fella has a case of perfectly normal, to be expected "Under 16 Newbie-itis" Nothing wrong with that. In his short time here he has plastered the forums with "What do you think of this?" or "What should I?" or "what do you think of that?" And, occasionally, chiming in on other threads with just plain dumb comments. It is very typical of younger, new members. Some members get annoyed with this and finally pop off with a mean spirited, smart-arse comment. Nothing wrong with that either, unless it is really derogetory (sp?)
And Mr. Wictor: I don't get the drift. Maybe add a couple of more exclamation points. Ya know, for emphasis.


As for the model? It's a nice one. But it is fantasy as, you all know, the order was cancelled by FedEx. But it has high-bypass, winglets, and a glass cockpit...so naturally, it doesn't belong in a good collection.

ignore all previous posts.
take a quarter, a dime, nickel or penny.
heads you buy it, tails...you put your tail between your legs and pass on this model.
Next time you're wondering if you should by or not, repeat the above process. works wonders and you don't even have to listen to people babel.

Hmmm...could it be that Christmas is coming and we're all a little busy? C'mon, Heavy, we're not going to be on all the time...besides, the January GJ's are a weak bunch this time around, so not too much there in the way of conversation. And this dead horse has been thoroughly beaten. I notice that the original poster of this thread hasn't come back, either.

Models were made in Lufthansa Cargo colours, under designation L-500.Mmmmmmmmmmmm, Id kinda buy that.

I own the model, and the UPS version as well. It makes for an interesting conversation point in my collection (especially since I live in the 2nd busiest air cargo hub in the world, UPS's Wordlport of SDF). I look upon them with daily interest of what might have been/still yet may be.

I'm going to be very clear, we don't want you to buy that model. Next time you post about A380 model, or try to purchase it, a missing thread is goint to be the last of your worries.

Yuri.... Due to the fact that it is currently a fantacy model... would you kindly grant him permission to purchase it if... and only if... he puts a big piece of tape below the model identifying it to be a fantacy FedEx MD-12????

Consider this your 2nd warning. You have been warned that you don't want to be warned again.

Yeah, but it's not so far fetched...not like a Braniff A380 or a Braniff Concorde or a Braniff KC-10A with matching Braniff F-16C.
