Does the gear have a retracted option?

No, the gears are fixed. But as crownvic said it is a really nice model. I like it very much. It is a great addition to my tanker collection

This just landed in my collection from DiecastAirplane.com

GeminiJets Gemini200
Boeing KC-46A Pegasus
USAF, Reg# N464KC
Item: G2AFO805
1/200 Scale
10" Long, 9.5" Wide

The Boeing KC-46 Pegasus is a military aerial refueling and strategic military transport aircraft developed by Boeing from its 767 jet airliner. In February 2011, the tanker was selected by the United States Air Force (USAF) as the winner in the KC-X tanker competition to replace older Boeing KC-135 Stratotankers. The first aircraft was delivered to the Air Force in January 2019. The Air Force intends to procure 179 Pegasus aircraft by 2027.

Love all the little details on this model! Gemini did a wonderful job on this model, although it doesn't come with gear up option, it's still a keeper. No quality problems on mine. Here's a quick video review and picture review

Enjoy!

I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade but have you been following the problems with this aircraft model? To be fair, I like the KC-46 from Gemini but barely. I was one of the lucky ones and it looks like you are too. Most folks had problems right out of the box with broken landing gear, disconnected vertical stabilizers and snapped booms. I haven't sent my back to the retailer because I can live with the glaring errors and horrible quality control.

To the contrary, Gemini did NOT do a wonderful job on this model and I'm not a "rivet counter" by any stretch. Yes, the finer detail is there but the airframe structure is not. The dihedral on those wings is atrocious, almost comical. The boom stabilizers in your photo are bent upwards. At least yours are affixed. Several collectors had the stabilizers torn off upon arrival.

Ultimately, I think Inflight200 will come along soon and make a better version that meets basic structural standards along with better QC.

Like the poster above I'm far from convinced this is a good release, the online reports of multiple damaged models is far from reassuring. Why the fixed gear Gemini?? We've had optional gear on 1:200 diecast 767's before.

The biggest kicker for me is the crazy amount of dihedral on those wings. If it's supposed to be 'in flight' why the gear down only option and is it supposed to be pulling 6G to get such a wing flex?

Fix the wings, give us an optional undercarriage with an actual operational scheme (this one has a civvie registration & 'experimental' on it with no Base tail code) & I'm onboard!

That really sucks! I got one ordered too.... I mean there is no excuse as this is just another 767. Didn't GJ have 767 before with gears up?

As much as I think this model is excellent in so many ways,I do agree with 11SQNLDR the dihedral of the wings is unbelievable. I love the reference to pulling 6G for such flex. Bad mistake that should be rectified really! On another note though,I would love it ultimately if Gemini could do this in 400 scale.
