Re: Feeling a bit desperate you think?

These posts always show how hypocritical they are. Gemini (ADI) is the distributor for Aviation200, BBOX, JC Wings, Phoenix Models which are all unlicensed with the airlines. Half, if not more, of...

Re: Gemini Goes to War: Threats to Retailers

Re: Gemini Goes to War: Threats to Retailers

That is a well worded PR statement but at the end of the day ADI is one of the biggest, if not the biggest importer and distributor in the world of unlicensed models. Many GeminiJets are not licensed...

Re: Very cheap 1:200 preorders on eBay

I would bet money that these are back door models from the factory. A floor supervisor or employee making (or taking) extra models, taking them out the back and selling them direct.
