Exclamation Gemini Jets 1:400 American Airlines DC-10

Hey guys I'm currently looking for the Gemini Jets 1:400 American Airlines DC-10. The item number is GJAAL159 and the registration is N118AA. There is one on eBay right now but I'm not willing to spend $150 on a 1:400 model. So if anybody could hook me up for a good price that would be great! I'm a hug AA fan and I need this piece of AA history!

One on eBay right now for $149.99 w/free shipping. Do a key word search of "N118AA" and it will take you right to it.

It is sad to report that I would see scads of these at collectible shows for like $10-15 for many many years. Never gave 'em a second thought.

A friend of mine here in Vancouver,sold his two weeks ago for $30.00. Be patient,it will surface for a good price. He still has both of the Dragon Wings versions if they are of any interest?

FYI, the Aeroclassics version is very nice and highly-prized.

...and don't expect it won for $40 ))))
I paid for mine $80 and only because (my belief) the seller had many other rare and wanted models that day and that made the collectors exhausted by the time the DC-10 biddind was coming to a close. When the bid started, I was prepared to see it go for near $200...

The model appeared on ebay once more and went for over $100, now it is the third time I see it on ebay (not THAT rare I guess...)
And the PAMC 747 "Ocean Spray" with a blue cheatline appeared only once in the past year and I am still in search...

I also have the Dragon chrome AA DC-10 and I like the Dragon's more than GJ's, it is very sharming to the eye. Nevertheless the GJ's is a must to have still.

Unfortunately the best I'll be able to do now is $40. Maybe I'm not your guy

my friend let me welcome you to the planet Earth (coordinates....x ...y...),
here on Earth this model has a value of $80 min (repeated sales/winning bids on ebay vary from 80 to 120), so when the guy offered it for $60 I got very surprised.
I did a good hard work before I found one by GJ and AC too so I do not need another, otherwise I would have been very happy being offered American Airlines DC-10 for nothing.
I could buy it only to sell it for $90 but I don't run after another dollar, too busy as is.

PS there is a guy on ebay under the name of virginfans, ask him he will sell it cheap to you... only like... $240 : ))))))

Yeah alright alexzar... All I see on eBay is a bunch of unsold GJ American DC-10's for prices around $70 -$90. And then at the very top I see the only green (sold) listing... $25. So Thanks for your input but I don't need it at the moment. Have a nice day.

After collecting the DW version, I couldn't see going any further. Their AA DC-10 and MD-11 are the best examples of 1/400 McDougie's.

Aeroclassics, the ultimate realism.
Most old GJ MD-11s (AA, DA, KLM...) have a problem with its nose and the cockpit windows, the cockpit window print was fixed (corrected should say) on a newer MD-11 mold, which is a beautiful model, however it exists only in FedEx livery.
Dragon AA MD-11 has one problem: "zebra" pattern of chrome and polished metal which I do not like.

I just recd an AC DC-10 in UAL Friendship scheme. While, I am happy with the model, it lacks the correct splitter in the tail-ones. The nose of the mould is also off quite a bit. The center-line of windscreen is quite high giving the "face" more a 767 ,(pointier and mid-line), look than that of the more faceted windows and lowered flight deck of the real airplane. These things do bug me, but not enough to slit a wrist over.
