From pictures Gemini appears to look very good although I have yet to see one in person.
Thank you and any help is greatly appreciated!

I have to second Flyin' Hawaiian's comment. Gemini Jets and Phoenix have got to be 2 of my favorite makers. As you can see, my collection is almost 52% Gemini Jets. Although I have a wide variety of makers. Little by little you'll get a better idea of where you want to head with your collection. In my case, I'm a wide-body collector, take a look at my collection and you'll notice what I'm talking about. Good luck with your collection!
