Just re-confirm that N743CK is only wearing a partial DHL tail exactly like Air Hong Kong A300-600F.

Whipping a dead horse, but Gemini is not the way to go for the 747... Out, Doug Seeley

Is this true? I am no expert. How would you comment/rate the UPS B747-400F they have made in the new mould?

OK - look at the junction of the engine pylons with the wing - heavy handed, clumsy, lazy, what? And the wing fairing - Gemini has always done huge seams, and this is one of them. Now if Dragon Wings were to attempt this, chances are that they would do better... Opinions are like anal sphincters - everybody has one. Out, Unidentified.

Thanks for your sharing and let's wish GJ will strive to improve their moulds.

Here you go the real pictures of N743CK, not very attractive though:
