Those Qantas are pretty tempting...especially the A380 as I missed the last ones that were put out. And that 747 looks like the #1 engine is straight which makes it more attractive to me...Gemini and Phoenix are both tempting me outside my collecting theme this month with the long haul ausie birds. Shoot!

Hell, I'm hoping to shell out for TWO of those! Now if we can only get some United Saul Bass and battleship 737s!

Wow, I think that I might go for that QF A380, the last one was a bit of a disappointment. I'll probably go for the F1 as well, spotted it at LAX.

What's your secret to getting Gemini to make what you desired ?

A.) Cash ... lots of it ?
B.) Sexual favors .... (no details ... please ... this is a family forum) ?
C.) Many years of persistent begging / harassment ?
D.) Threats of Rapture ?

Please share your secret(s) ...

Well Buddy, if I told ya I'd have to kill ya...

But in all honesty, I just kept asking for it, asking and asking and asking for it. I wanted an original 1983 launch version, G-BIKB would have been the one, seeing as I was there in person as a kid the day it entered service with BA.

But... seeing as BA went and painted a newer model like this to celebrate it's withdrawal from service, and I got to fly on it last October on the official last BA 757 revenue service, then I guess this little rendering will do...

I like the CO and the QF 747, both for me eventually, but I'm confident I'll be able to find them for less than immediate retail, so I'll wait. Pretty meat and potatoes month here.

turns out, the secret is to convince the airline to release a retrojet that resembles the livery you want.

then, you get your model.

ha - I am thinking of doing the same, for the CO. I want it, but I bet it'll be available sooner or later for less than full retail price.

Viva Workhorses!!!

Maybe this CO is a sign that we might see some United workhorses as well.
Of course, it may also be that everything Continental is hot now given the merger.

That said, the BA and the CO and maybe the F1 for me this time around.
Good stuff!

Hmmm. CO 735. With just a little work, that becomes a Continental Lite 735!

Ooooh, you're right! CO did make some 735's "lite". Perhaps a small decal to add?

Speaking of customizing, if I do get two of those 735s, I'm making one of them represent the 735s of the mid-90s with the extra plugged windows

Ha...I just realized that that CO 735 actually NEEDS to have an extra window plugged at the front on the starboard side, regardless of the SkyTeam logo. Well, either that or it needs to have one LESS plugged window. This aircraft had the original three plugged windows up front there when it first got the SkyTeam logo, but shortly thereafter, it was reconfigured and ended up with just one plugged window. IIRC, no Continental 737-500s have had two plugged windows at the front on the right side. It's either been one or three. I guess I'll need to see what the production version looks like before I decide what to customize!
