Where are the Convair 540s of North Central, Republic, American Eagle, Frontier, Aspen, DHL, RCAF etc? So many to do that would sell!!
The FAA one was actually first! Gemini only care if they can make 2,000 units and they are partially paid for by an airline.

It is a nice mould except for the nosegear leg which is horrible.
